Christmas Tablescape

We had another couple over for dinner Wednesday evening. I set the table in a Christmas theme. The red tablecloth was just purchased at Target for $10.

The silver chargers were found at a thrift store for 25 cents each. Flatware is my everyday Oneida.

The plates were at Salvation Army for about $3.00 for the service for four.

A salad bowl was included in the set.

Coffee mugs were included, too. The glasses with holly were also thrift store finds. They were Arbys Christmas collection 1986.

I had this little tea light holder for years. I have also been collecting Christmas napkin rings. I like having a mismatched assortment.

Fresh greens are arranged in the silverplated bowl which is also a thrift store find. The candle sticks, thrift store again. Candles were from a yard sale. I have had those little figurines for decades.

I have three layers of garland around the chandelier. Hanging from the fixture are crystal icicles.

This post is linked to Tablescape Thursday. Go on over to Between Naps on the Porch to see Susan's beautiful tablescape and all the others who have joined her party.
