 some Monday Morning Blooms and Christmas centerpiece inspiration!

Can you believe Christmas is this Friday? Where did December go?

Snow is a infrequent occurrence in our area of North Carolina, usually here today and

gone tomorrow, so I’m always dreaming of a White Christmas!

It’s been a very wet December (and year overall!) and if raindrops were

snowflakes, it would take a couple of weeks for us to dig our way out!

I set a merry and bright table with visions of snowflakes dancing in my head. . .

A snowman top hat container was the inspiration for my centerpiece

and Christmas table, found at Hobby Lobby in early November.

 I knew it would be a perfect ‘fit’ for my table to accompany

my Top Hat Snowman Plates purchased last year!

Sprigs of cedar, juniper, boxwood and holly berries provide a base for the arrangement.

They’re supported by chicken wire in a plastic container inserted in the top hat.

Ornament and holly picks, a snowflake, a Cardinal ornament and candy canes wired with floral picks,

add a little Christmas cheer and embellishment to the greenery.

Juniper, cedar, holly and boxwood provide a natural evergreen runner, clipped from the trees and shrubs.

Candy canes, red ornaments and sparkling holly picks make

it merry and bright, sprinkled down the center of the table.

      Mary, I love your cheerful snowman tablescape! It’s so colorful and happy. Your top hat container is adorable. Your salad plates are beautiful paired with your tartan dinner plate, white chargers and beaded placemats. Your napkins and napkin rings blend so well with your tartan throw. You made another beautiful MMB arrangement. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Clara ❤️

    Your pattern play is the best! Love the M-C salad plates, and your mix of greens as centerpiece and runner are simply superb. What an adorable container as your inspiration. I really love those napkin rings too. Thanks so much for all the floral inspiration you and the rest of the gals delivered in 2020. It was a bright spot in the blogging world. So many clever ideas and themes. You ALL did such a great job. Merry Christmas!

    A very SHOWY/SNOWY table scape!! You always manage to match everything perfectly!! I bought that same hat last year and created a silk arrangement for a snowman enthusiast!! She loved it!! One of the stores I used to frequent is gone from our area..that store is Pier One…it closed down soon after the lockdown in March…I miss it…they always had some of the most beautiful items…SAD 😞

    Delightful table and creative arrangement! How perfect to find the top hat for your centerpiece and so creative to use candy canes, cardinal picks and snowflake picks with assorted greenery. You do the best job of a natural runner and you have the eye for weaving a plate stack. I am amazed how you remember where you bought all your items. The snowman plates are darling and the last pic of the snowman ornament was so cute.
    Mary, I wish you a joyful Christmas. Thank you for sharing your talent so faithfully for Monday Morning Blooms. I can’t believe it has been three years.

    A Merry Top Hat of the Morning to you!! This is probably one of my very favorite tables Mary! The top hat vase is perfect for your most adorable Top Hat Snowmen dishes. As always, your table is impeccably curated to gives us a smile and a “sigh” seeing the creativity and detail in every inch of the table. Love, love this table Mary. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and here’s to a most happy, and healthy New Year! It’s been a fabulous year of Monday Morning Blooms!

    Very cute plates! Jealous of all your rain, we have had 3 days of rain since April, they show chance of rain for Christmas, but it always disappears when time rolls on… My garden thinks its spring we are so dry and warm, snowmen look like a distant ancient holiday mystery, very bright and cheerful table!

    Mary, how festive and fun is your top hat snowmen and centerpiece. I always love the way you mix patterns, colors, and textures. This table is a definitely one of my favorites. The MC salad plates are adorable, my EM would be mesmerized by them. Every detail is perfect. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and I look forward to our MMB’s in 2021!

    I’m so in love with this cheerful snowman table, Mary! The top hat centerpiece is darling, and those plates, oh those plates…❤️❤️! I would choose the polka dot one, but they’re both adorable. The checkered votives are perfect! Merry Christmas to you, your hubby, Lola and Sophie. 🎄❤️🎄

    Thank you Mary, for a very visual Christmas table of joy. It’s just the two of us this year because of Covid and no decorations adorn our house. Love the colors of the tablescape and the dishes are so cute. Made me smile seeing this on a rainy, dreary day. May you and your family be blessed with joy and good health. Merry Christmas!

    A very Merry merry Monday Morning Blooms day to you, Mary! As usual, your styling is just beautiful. So cheerful, colorful and happy, something we can all use this holidays season! Wishing you the merriest of days celebrating Christmas! xoxo Lidy

    Once again, your table is perfection. Love that container. I have a top hat that I have used several times for tables and will again after Christmas. Love the checked votives! Have a very merry Christmas, Mary!!!

    Mary, it goes without saying that this table delights! I have a fondness for snowmen, and usually save them for January. Love the darling MC plates and your top hat container is the perfect compliment. Of course the tartan touches thrill my plaid loving heart. Thanks for sharing this fun, festive table. Merry, Merry!

    What a magical top hat that is, making your entire table dance with holiday cheer and joy ! Those snowmen plates are just darling, really like them both, but I’m partial to polka dots, so that is where I’d sit. Those plaid votives are awesome also. The entire tablescape is pure delightful! I’m pinning this and will be on the look out for a cute top hat like that. Merry Christmas Mary! 🌲🌲

  26. December 24, 2020 at 12:32 pm

    Beautiful, festive and very merry! Have a wonderful Christmas!
