A MERRY GEORGIA CHRISTMAS

Wishing all of you the most wonderful Christmas!

I set a simple table for Christmas today using some salad plates 
I found at the thrift as my inspiration
I found a set of four salad plates made by Sakura for under $4
each plate has a different design
I got a funny angle here but still you can see the design
I only have two of the green dinner plates
So I used two dark red plates for the other two place settings
and I think it works just fine!
I used a diamond point with ruby flash wine glass with the red plates and a green wine glass with the green plates.  I like the mix and match on this table.  Casual but still fun!
A silver napkin ring with a holly cutout and a plain ruby napkin
 I did a very simple centerpiece using a rattan charger, hammered aluminum tray with a handle and filled it with pine cones & dark red berries
A few tea lights for some glow
A cute snowman salt & pepper jumped in to join the fun
Everything on this table is thrifted except my everyday flatware bought on clearance

I'm joining Diann for

Please take a look at my other blog
Viewing My World for some photos of my family this holiday season

Wishing you all a

Hugs, 
Linda

Oh those little snowman S&P's are so adorable. I looked for a new set to add to my Christmas collection but didn't see anything I really liked. Those are so cute and they always add a touch of whimsy to any holiday table. Christmas blessings to you & yours.
