A Bright and Shiny Holiday Setting


The best gift of all arrived this holiday season my daughter and blogging partner Andrea came home for the holidays! She was able to give me a hand in getting the holiday table set. This year our family hosted Christmas Eve, we just had a few minutes to snap pictures of the table before our extended family arrived…


I don't have enough of any one set of dishes and stemware so we mix and match. Upon further review of the table, it appears we're missing a spoon. I hope we added it before dinner!


The dishes are a mix of Johnson Brothers Strawberry Fair, Rose Chintz and a few others thrown in.


Andrea and I both snapped pictures, we both seemed to focus on the center piece which was a mix of different votives along with new and vintage glass garland.








We hope your holidays were bright and shiny.

Your table is wonderful and matchy-matchy is kind of boring to me. I mix up everything myself-I am not brave enough or patient enough for tablescaping however. hugs♥Olive

What a gorgeous table you've set! I love the mix of coordinating patterns and I'd bet the spoon had been carried in to the kitchen for a sneak preview of the luscious menu items. Happy New Year!

Thank you for leaving a comment on my latest post on knitted Interiors.

I absolutely love the photos above, especially the pink beads and mercury glasses. I used mauve and silver beads on my Christmas table Christmas day and a few years ago spread gold and red ones around circular tables for Christmas function I organised for a company. I also scattered little gold stars around the tables at the function.

I will visit again, you have a lovely blog.

Love a mix of patterns on the table as well as in my home decor. It is a little bohemian and I love it. Have a wonderful new year celebration.

Such a lovely table. I love the first picture with the table all dressed up and the pretty Christmas tree in the background. Your pink flowery plates with the crystal are lovely.

Debra said...

Oh, Laura, what a beautiful tree and table! I felt I was there seeing the mercury glass garland on your table. I hope there was just enough snow at the cottage for Andrea to enjoy. Can't wait to hear all about it.
