Good morning! I sure hope you all had a WONDERFUL Christmas and were surrounded by the ones you love. Our little Colleen had a very good day, Santa was very good to her. I set a new table for us and thought we would dine with the birds for a few weeks in winter! I fell in love with this runner when I saw it.
I have collected the BHG line of Christmas plates, from Walmart, since they started this line a few years ago. Some of these have birds depicted on the salad plates. I started with a plaid tablecloth, and added the runner. This is a favorite design idea of mine to use a cloth and a runner.
I kept the pinecones, small ornaments and snowflakes in the bubble glasses and added a cardinal.
The centerpiece is a bark birdhouse with some cardinals on it. I placed it into a basket with some greens, ivy, and picks.
Next to the centerpiece are 2 of these bird figures.
I found these cute watering can ornaments at Walmart. This plate depicts a chickadee on a berry vine.
I mixed up the flatware for this table for some fun. Green,white and polka dot utensils make it interesting!
2 napkins; a white and a plaid are gathered together with a ring of greens and berries. These are actually candle rings, but I often use them as napkin rings! Another little design trick of mine:)
I am using some cute votives that have a border of holly, since it gets dark so early.....which I have to say I do not like:):)
The bird S and P are in a metal basket holder.
The stack is a textural placemat, the plaid charger from Michaels last year, an embossed white dinner plate, and the bird salad plates.
Aren't these cute?
I got some shots the nest morning when the sun finally came back out!
Thanks for your visit and for all your sweet comments during this past year.
I so appreciate all my friends and followers and hope you will be with me in the coming year.
