Naughty or Nice

12.16.2010

Thanks to everyone who has joined my party. It is still open if you would like to add something to it.


I started setting my holiday table in the dining room and had no idea what it was going to be. No preplanned theme. I just started pulling things out and setting them on the table. Next thing I knew I kind of had a snowflake woodland theme going. Everything I used I already had on hand.



Have you been naughty or nice?


Ballard's stockings purchased last year.




This urn was a greenish color and I spray painted it white and filled it with fresh greens and some picks


These snowflake napkin rings were brass and I painted them, too. I tucked a snowflake napkin inside a solid red napkin.


Hung these snowflake ornaments from the chandelier.











Gold charger, holly plate, green scalloped plate, and my newest plates on top. Added a bundle of cinnamon sticks tied with jute.


Pottery Barn hurricanes filled with old garland.


Snowflake glasses from Kroger last year.


Purchased eight of these hand painted glasses at Dillards many years ago and broke one last year so now I just mix them.


This chair is normally in the sitting room, but had to be moved to put the tree in there. I knew Mr. Savvy wasn't going to carry this upstairs and so I came up with this spot and placed the dining room chair in the foyer that I showed in a previous post.





This shows the whole room. I changed the chandy shades to red ones for the holidays.


Ah, the glow of candlelight.

  10. Very pretty! This does seem to have a wonderful woodlands effect. I love the comfy chair at the table. Too bad you don't have two of them in there on each end, now that would be cozy. LOL! You did a beautiful job on this setting, I really like the cinnamon sticks on the table too. Very cute idea!

    I love how you incorporated the rustic jute & cinnamon sticks...gives it a real woodsy feeling. Your newest plates are pretty, too & those candlelight photos came out great.
    I love the look of the mixed chairs & I have to do something similar if I have 8 at the table.
    Your family is going to feel very honored to eat in this lovely setting.
