I'm a home schooling mom of 9, 5 boys and 4 girls, ages 1 1/2 to 21! Blissfully married for 22 years to a man who makes me laugh everyday. I love having tea with friends, with my hubby, or with a good book. I'm addicted to thrift shops and yard sales and love the thrill of the hunt! I enjoy cooking and entertaining. I love all things vintage, and the things in my home all have a story to tell.
Can you believe it? Only 2 Tablescape Thursdays left before Christmas! Make sure to visit Susan @ BNOTP for more decked out dining. I'm also linking up with lovely Leigh from Tales from Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday.
My table is set for Christmas dinner as I eagerly await for my 2 boys to come home from college. It will be the first time since August that my family will be complete. This is the BEST Christmas present any mother could wish for!
This is one of my favorite thrift shop finds, all polished up for our Christmas table. It's so shiny you could see my reflection on it! It's a silver butter dish with a pivoting lid.
Say, ahhh... a little wider, please... The lid turns all the way around until it's hidden underneath the dish. Pretty snazzy, huh?
The table is very traditional, just like me.
The gold chargers are from Wal Mart. That reminds me, I have to purchase some silver ones for my January tablescape! These pillar candles I use all year round by changing out the color of the candles. For Christmas, they get a little extra adornment with some ribbon and greenery.
The china is called Holly Holiday, purchased over the years from May Company. Remember that department store?
Red napkins, glittered fruit, and a gold organdy ribbon complete the setting, while the Mikasa water goblet and wine glass add a little sparkle.
Lastly, some simple Dollar Tree ornaments hang from gold ribbon from my Victorian chandelier.
Wishing you all the Merriest Christmas from my cottage to yours!
