When I first laid eyes on these beautiful reindeer my heart raced a little faster. I just thought they were so pretty. Really needing nothing in the Christmas department, they went home with me anyway. A few months later I found them at market so could have purchased them wholesale. Oh well…
Today my tablescape revolves around my original china which makes it forty years old.
Most people, it seems really don’t care for the pattern they picked out as a twenty year old bride.
Surprisingly I have always liked mine.
The pattern is called Warrington by Noritake
The green color has always remained fairly in vogue and I still love the detailed gold swirls. I always thought Queen Elizabeth would approve.
The Jingle bell napkin holders happened to be sitting close by from last weeks tablescape.
They seemed perfect hanging from an antler.
Santa can keep track of them that way.
Won’t you sit down to a December meal with me? Shopping and wrapping can wait awhile.
The little (old) cream pitcher, tiny vase and dinner bell were gifts this summer for our Ruby Anniversary. Place mats were a Christmas gift from my Aunt several years ago. Center candle holder was a Goodwill Find. Bark candles were half price after Christmas at Target. They look like the Pottery Barn candles. Realistic greenery and berries are from my Silk inventory. ;)
My china had taken a back burner with all the FUN dishes I’ve been finding at thrift stores and TJ Maxx, but now with newly discovered layering and more accessorizing the table, I can see my cherished dishes can be fun again.
