Celebrate Christmas at the table with traditional red and green, an evergreen runner, paisley, plaid and St. Nick with assorted forest friends plates.
‘Twas two weeks before Christmas, we’re still decking the halls,
Hanging up garland, to swag on the walls.
The dishes are set on the table with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon will be there.
Enjoying a season of red and green,
Evergreens cut, gathered and gleaned.
St. Nick arrived early, traveling by sleigh,
Taking time out, to stop and play.
St. Nick is a lover of nature you see,
Delivering birdhouses, a bunny at knee.
His sleigh is packed with a tree, bear and drum. . .
An interesting fact, St. Nick has a green thumb.
He fashioned a runner from boxwood and cypress,
Adding mini red ornaments, to provide brightness.
With magnolia, pine cones and berry picks sprinkled,
Mercury glass votives were lit for some twinkle.
Red and green paisley is paired with plaid,
Mixing patterns a delight, making us glad.
Napkins are adorned with leaves of holly,
Held by beaded napkin rings and oh so jolly.
Birds, bunnies and owls~ all gathered near. . .
Joining St. Nick at the table, along with some deer.
Chipmunks and foxes that St.Nick knew,
All friends of the forest and St. Nick too.
Thank you for visiting this busy time of year~
Wishing you a season of love, peace and good cheer!
