As in most years Christmas will not be in our home this year and therefore I don’t have an actual tablescape to share today. It is our tradition to have Christmas Eve in my mother’s home. This is a tradition our daughters always remember and my mother even at 84 has requested we keep this tradition as long as she is able to host. She is still going strong!
Today I will join in with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to show my dishes I have displayed on my “Butler’s Pantry” counter. All fall I have shared pictures of my brown transferware ~~~ well SURPRISE!! I have it in red too! This pattern is called Vista by Johnson Brothers.
Surely sometime during the holidays people will be over for cookies or desserts or a casual meal. I love my dishes too much to tuck them in a cupboard.
The sparkle of the silver pitcher and tray just feel so festive.
Crystal silverware holders have been in my hutch for years. They are a great tool for keeping things tidy at a serving area.
These dishes were added to my collection this year. They are also by Johnson Brothers. I found four dinner plates and four salad plates at TJMaxx. Wish I could find more but I do love mixing them with my Vista plates.
This little lighted ceramic Christmas tree has been part of our decor for years. My mother gave it to us and now my girls have all said they would love to have one. Someone from the Veteran’s Home painted these to sell. I’m keeping my eye out for more to pick up for my girls.
Oh Thursday *** the week before Christmas Eve Day. I’m excited to see what you are sharing on your tables today! More shopping to do today~~~
Enjoy this day God has given us!
