Oh, and also a bird perched on it.
Used my wooden candlesticks topped with birch wrapped candles and a pair of silver plated ones from an antique store. My sparkly white deer have been used for years.
Found six of these wonderful heavy goblets by Noritake at an antique shop last week. The six were priced at $35 and they gave me ten percent off. I love these glasses.
I have had these dark blue chargers forever. I bought them when the dining room walls used to be blue and I had a lot of blue and white decor then. I am so glad I saved them. The plates are by Johnson Brothers and I found them at Home Goods. I knew the wintry scene would work with well in this table setting.
I bought four plates with the other church scene on them and two with this snow covered bridge for the seats at the end of the table.
Vintage napkins and silverware is used. I have forks and spoons, but no vintage knives. On the hunt for those.
Continuing the blue theme these silver shakers were purchased at the Biltmore House gift shop in Asheville, NC many years ago.
In the hutch I added some fresh cut greenery from our Leland cypress trees again and tucked them in my vintage sugar bowls with water added to keep it fresh.
I picked up this pair of partridges at the same store the Noritake goblets came from. I knew these would go well with my nature inspired theme. And what is better for Christmas than partridges. I think they are partridges, maybe not, but that is what I am calling them.
I just love the color of these birds.
This is another one of those giant pineapple like pine cones that I ordered.
That's Christmas in the dining room 2011.
