Happy Monday!

Are you like me and finding it hard to believe Christmas that is less than two weeks away?

Are you finished decking halls?

While the tree is up, I still have more to go!

I always think the house feels more merry and bright

when the table is decked out for the holidays too!

I’m lighting the way for Santa at the table with a ‘Let It Glow’ centerpiece from Lynch Creek Farm.

The ‘Let It Glow’ centerpiece is adorned with fresh noble fir, cedar, red berries, and frosted pine cones, topped with a red LED lantern

I placed the centerpiece in a white bowl on the table.

 I decided to give the centerpiece some additional embellishments to pair with the Santa plates.

Ho Ho Ho and wire edge tartan ribbon, candy canes and Christmas ornaments with pine cones add a merry pop of red.

The ribbon is looped and secured with wired wood floral picks. . .

With the picks are tucked into the greenery and floral foam in the centerpiece, along with candy canes.

      You have the gift of taking something that’s already pretty and taking it over the top! I wish you would publish a book with all your creations. I’ll be first to order it!

    Gosh, what a fabulous tablescape and embellishing of that LCF centerpiece!
    I love all the details, but I’m like a magpie for those Santa napkin rings on the mixed napkins, and that flatware!

    Really beautiful ideas, but the link for the used Santa plates just takes you to another post. I would love to get some. Maybe if a brand was supplied, I could find some online.

    • December 13, 2021 at 9:22 am

      Hi Sherri, Yes, the link provided is to another table where they were used. The manufacturer’s name is supplied: CR Christmas Collection Old Saint-Nicholas. I’ve had them for about 10 years. You might check Replacements or eBay.

        Thanks Mary! I think I found them on eBay. I’m not sure they are exactly the same, but they are darn close. Thanks for the quick response.

    Mary, I love the festive embellishments on the centerpiece. The red lantern really punches out the color. Of course, I am mad for plaid. The Santa plates remind me of a few Fitz and Floyd that I have. They pair beautifully with the centerpiece.I always love your tables. Merry Monday ♥️

    Oh just love the table and thank you so much for sharing how to do the ribbon. I will try this.

  10. December 13, 2021 at 9:33 am

    Mary, it seems my comment did not post. The embellished centerpiece is so festive with the bright red LED lantern. Those Santa plates remind me of F&F plates that I have. Your attention to detail is always spot on and the mixing of plaids make me smile. The flatware is amazing, it must be new. What a magical tree, it is gorgeous. Congrats to your winner and wishing you a Merry Monday♥️

    I adore those Santa plates Mary and how cute with plaid and the Santa belt runner and napkin rings! The way you embellished the lantern centerpiece with the ho ho ho and more plaid ribbon is so fun and pretty…your tree and table are exploding with Christmas! Congrats to your lucky winner!

  13. December 13, 2021 at 9:47 am

    It’s so darn festive and cute, love your centerpiece! You and Santa got a good thing going 😉

  14. December 13, 2021 at 9:50 am

    What a fun table! I love the white chargers under the plaid plates – like an extension of Santa’s beard – just perfect. And the extras you’ve added to the centerpiece transformed a beautiful centerpiece into an absolutely stunning one. I love all the details you put into everything you do. Thank you for another great post.

    Mary, such a beautiful table to admire this cold rainy morning. I love those cute Santa plates, along with your Santa runner and napkin rings. I would love to tag along with you while shopping. Your tree looks fabulous, so cheerful and festive. The LCF wreath is lovely and I love how you added embellishments. The ribbons are so fun and perfect for your Santa table. Merry Christmas Mary.

    Such a festive table! It makes me feel better you say you’re not done decorating either. I though it was just me. Have a wonderful Christmas!

  19. December 13, 2021 at 10:51 am

    Mary, what a sweet festive table setting! I’m seriously contemplating how I can re-create something like this in our kitchen for when my little people come to stay with us for Christmas. They would surely adore a table like yours. I was sorry to have to miss all of you, my Monday Morning Blooms friends, this time around. Congratulations to your winner, and I’m wishing you a very Merry week! xo Lidy

    I can hear Santa’s sleigh bells jingling! Such a festive setting to get the holiday mood in full swing. I’d love to pick up some Santa plates, but I’ve run out of tables to decorate!

    We not only finished our decorating but it’s actually raining in NorCal all week: two almost unbelievable events! Ho-ho-ho!!

  21. December 13, 2021 at 11:28 am

    Mary, your LCF centerpiece looks beautiful in front of your lovely tree. Festive embellishments everywhere! The candy canes are so cute with the Santa plates and the attractive chargers.
    Wishing you a wonderful Christmas.

  22. December 13, 2021 at 11:56 am

    I always love your table settings, but the ones for Christmas are my favorite of all! Thank you so very much for the LCF centerpiece giveaway! I am so excited to see the centerpiece. It should arrive sometime later this week. I’ll take a picture and email it to you.

  23. December 13, 2021 at 1:32 pm

    Mary, it’s pretty much the same here. The tree is decorated, the mantel is done, but still adding some Christmas cheer here and there around the house. Not doing as much as usual, but if I don’t pull out some of my pieces, I’ll be sad.
    Your table is merry and bright and lights up my day. Merry, Merry!

  24. December 13, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Congratulations to Chloe. Love the new centerpiece and your Santa table! HO HO HO!!!!!

    • December 13, 2021 at 11:42 pm

      Oh Mary…what a festive tablescape, and Christmas tree! Gorgeous! Of course I absolutely “love” those Santa plates!I remember being in love with them when you used them before! They are magical, especially paired with the plaid plate. Your centerpiece is just so beautiful. You are so gifted to be able to make that.

      Got my lovely package today! Thank you💕

    Love your additions to an already very pretty centerpiece. Congrats to the winner. Your red runner with the Santa buckle is really cute. No, I can’t believe Christmas is only 2 weeks away! Yikes! Love the lights and all the trimmings, need to do some baking!

  29. December 20, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    This is so warm, lush and merry! I love that you embellished a centerpiece that was already pretty and gave it your signature style. I imagine there are many kids and kid-at-heart adults that would love to spend some time around this festive table. Merry Christmas!
