47th - Tablescape & Barscape - A little green for Christmas

For this week's tablescape - wasn't ready to put out the full Christmas settings - but am getting in the mood for some Christmas Decorations; the tree is up and waiting for it to fall out to decorate it, the wreath is on the door!  Slowly but surely we are getting the house ready for all the joy that Christmas brings!  So with "green" being the color of choice - here is "A little bit of Christmas - Green"  to mark the beginning growth of the Spirit!  
 Love this "new" green for Christmas it called for my "Royal Staffordshire - Windsong" ironstone.

 This little present box was so perfect, easy to decorate and change with the color scheme.

 Have been putting together Pflatzgraff sets and I have been so success with this white set  - just last week came across the coffee pot server at Goodwill.
And now for the matching barscape...

 Found this reindeer and feel in love had to adopt him and bring him home!

 The chargers are glass very lightly tinted green.

Thought I would share this....purchased these clip on green pointsetta's at Walmart for $1 each and in removing them from the bag I cut off their tags and clipped them to this pie plate holder to get them out of my way...
Loved how they looked so I left them there for our dinner party...


  1. Tammy, what a lovely, fresh take on a Christmas table! That pattern is lovely -- I've never seen it before, but it's so pretty! I'll bet it will prove versatile, too, as that green coordinates well with a lot of other colors. Really appealing!

  2. Oh your tablescape makes me feel merry and bright!

    Seasons greetings to you and yours.
