I'm sure many of you, if not all of you have your Christmas decor put away. I have all of the house broken down, put away and "almost" completely re-organized. When I put the Christmas away I'm always in the mood to re-organize "everything", hoping for a better transition for the next season. Are you like that or do you just put it away forgetting about it until next year? I'm in the middle of breaking down the shop now, trying to get it re-organized in the
war storage room. January is such a long drab boring month I'm adding "tons" of greenery to all the displays. Anxiously awaiting the Spring shipments to arrive.
Along with the Christmas decor there are Christmas dishes, now empty but still leftover. In our home some of those dishes we use all winter, like the snowmen plates and some of the Staffordshire, the plaid is put away for another year.
I hope you don'tmind me sharing some of those leftover dishes in a tablescape I didn't get an opportunity to share before now. Watching the sun dance across the table is like playing your favorite song over and over again, the memories are priceless.
Around the iron base of the cloche dome I tucked greenery with a few gold picks and red iced pine cones. The table's festive feel was beginning to take shape.
With the centerpiece being on the "glam" side, I didn't want the table to get to serious. I could have gone all white, letting the red pop, instead I opted for red and plaid, a touch of whimsy to me. After all, the holidays brings out the kid in most of us.
Breaking down the cast ......
I don't recall where I purchased the napkins. They were bought long before the sewing fever took over this past summer.
The Peace plates came from Walmart last year. This year I purchased the reindeer. I cannot wait to put them to good use. :-)
The beaded edge dinner plate from Walmart a few years back, and the Fleur-Di-Li's cream colored charger from J.C. Penney's quite a while ago.
As the sun continues to dance across the table, it's time to enjoy the candles dancing adding a touch of romance to the table.
Thanks for stopping in today to view the "left over" table. I hope you'll continue to follow our journey of 2013. I'll be sharing a few changes coming our way. I would love to say there are "big" projects on the agenda, maybe only in my dreams. I hope all you you are enjoying the beginning of the New Year. Until next time....
