I love all things Christmas including the traditional red and green, merry plaids and evergreens! Decking the table, as well as the halls, brings me joy and cheer so I’m happy to be joining a group of 20 table stylists for a Christmas Tablescape Blog Hop!
Look for the links at the bottom of this post for more holiday and Christmas table inspiration this week through Friday, December 14th.
My Christmas pattern, St. Nicholas by Fitz & Floyd (1978 – 1996) provided the table inspiration along with “A Visit from St. Nicholas”, more commonly known as “The Night Before Christmas” by Clement C. Moore.
Without further ado, here’s A Visit From St. Nicholas Christmas Tablescape:
‘Twas two weeks before Christmas and all ‘round the table,
I placed the red, green and plaid, as much as I was able.
‘St. Nicholas’ now retired, I received as a bride~
When a piece of it breaks, I have sat down and cried.
The stump of Nick’s pipe is lit you can see,
By evidence of smoke rising next to the tree.
Red garland is swagged and placed carefully,
Candles cast a warm glow, illuminating the tree.
A candy cane here, a star placed there,
A reindeer helper is doing his share.
For a table centerpiece, I gathered some greenery~
Clipping and cutting from the shrubs and the scenery.
A natural runner created from boxwood and cypress~
Bright shiny ornaments then added, providing some brightness.
Candy canes, magnolia and pine cones were sprinkled,
Mercury glass votives were lit for some twinkle.
The glass how it twinkles, reflections how merry,
Red goblets, a shade between roses and cherry.
Beaded candy cane napkin rings add sparkle & shine~
I saw them at Pier 1 & said to myself, “Mine!”
They matched bread & butter plates you can see~
When I spied them, I clapped, then squealed with glee!
The mice are not stirring, they’re sleeping instead~
The shaker set holder, a shoe for their bed.
More reindeer arrive, which ones I don’t know,
Maybe Dasher? or Dancer? Raring to go.
Prancer? or Vixen? I don’t know their names~
I’m ashamed to admit, they all look the same.
Thank you for visiting, this busy time of year~
Wishing you a season of love, peace and good cheer!
