Christmas and Santa is coming

I created this intimate little table for two that my husband and I can sit at when watching tv I just wanted to use these plates I have gotten and loved

I so love the red and green colors

maybe just some icecream for dessert

 A present to open later

                                                                                           dessert by candlelite works for me

Well Santa is coming in just four days so I made a table to welcome him with

I got these plates last year at local GW it was included in my big stash that was 75% off everything so all four plates were 1.29

and these lil santa's came from Michael's on clearance each one is different

 these little guys were so cute I invited them home with me
Santa brings lots of presents let me think here have I been naughty or nice?

I made these napkin rings that I just found on Pinterest LOVE them

my inspiration came from this glass Santa he was the first thing I saw on my splurge at GW last year I put a colored lite inside him to make him lite up

plate number two each one has a different pattern on the rim and a different Santa on each.Don't you just love a Dancing Santa?

 He sits upon a raised red cake plate with snow all around him holding a bell to announce his arrival.
plate number three and Santa number three

here are numbers four of both Santa's

 this is not pink
I left a Santa cookie cutter for each quest or to hold a nametag at

here are some shots of the whole table

This Santa was a gift to me many years ago from a very dear friend that has passed on from Pancreatic cancer. I get to think of her every year when I put this guy out

I made my own little tree I wasn't going to get one  what is the sense to that when I am alone and while at Lowe's one night they were cutting trees and throwing scraps into a bin and  a customer said"hey they are Free why don't you take some home throw some lites on them and decorate your hutch with some" so I gathered  alot of branches and stuck them in a pot with some lites and decorated with napkin rings I had sitting in a jar. I don't think it looks to bad of a Charlie brown tree does it? then they were giving these log slices away (come on guys Michael's sells them for $2.00 a piece) great for coasters in a rustic theme. just be sure to dry them out in the oven for a couple of hours to dry off the sap. Pretty good job if I do say so myself. wishing everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Susie, I visited here several days ago and left a comment for you but I am not seeing it now. I feel terrible that it did not post for you. This seems to happen every once and a while. The gist of it was I love the red and green candlelit table that you created for you and your husband (sounds romantic) and that I really like the dancing Santa plates, they are so cute. The welcoming Santa table is so festive I love the little Santa's from Michael's and the cake stand with the Santa on top. Everything looks wonderful for a festive Christmas Dinner..... Hugs, Candy
