Christmas in July...

As many of you know there are a whole group of bloggers doing Christmas in July events..
I join Printers Devil for a Christmas Tablesetting..Please check out the other entries at her blog..


I used a round red placemat, with a red check Christmas tree shaped placemat on top, (Pottery Barn) and red check napkin..

Red plates, peppermint swirl salad and Santa's hat soup bowl...all from Pottery Barn outlet..


Swirl name card holders, ornament salt and peppers...
Pine cone tree as the centerpiece, Christmas stems, and a candy cane at each setting..
Red and green ornament shaped candles
A table for all age groups!

And a basket of homemade cookies for the guests to take home...


5 months from today is...CHRISTMAS!! And I bet some of you have started your shopping !

Thanks for visiting..


  1. Oh wow! Kathleen, your table has me ready to get out and start shopping!! I don't know if I can get a good sale now, but your dishes inspire me!! Can't wait to see what you have five months from now!!

    Happy weekend!! :-)


  2. Kathleen, this is so pretty! The red and white looks so festive! I love the red and white checkered Christmas tree placemat, and the cookie basket is an awesome idea.


  3. Oh I just love it. It really does look like Christmas. I love the placemats shaped like Christmas trees and the salad dishes are so cute. Your centerpiece is so perfect. You did a fantastic job. Hugs, Marty

  4. Something tells me you're already shopping for Christmas! I bet your trunk is half full already :)

    Tables look great!

  5. This is great, love it!

    I bought the Dollar Tree dishes about three years ago.


  6. Kathleen,
    I love your Christmas tablescape. I especially like the Pottery Barn plates. I have a Pottery Barn outlet close by & I always forget to go. Sometimes they have fabulous deals, but other times I still think the items are over priced. Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment. It really means a lot to me.

  7. Kathleen,
    Thanks for participating again. I love this table. It would be one that I would enjoy day after day since it is so simple and Christmasy. Love the tree shaped placemats and the bowls.

  8. Christmas in July helps me think cool! Love those peppermint plates. You have the best holiday tables.

  9. Christmas in July makes me nervous. I try and have my shopping done by the end of Oct. so that I do not have to deal with the crowds. Since the economy is so bad I am not sure that crowds will be a problem this year at the shops. Sad but true. Love the photos of the LI beach with the GD. Amazing what kids can do with a cast in the water. I love your wives with knives apron. I had to laugh the first time I heard the name of that blog:)

  10. Hi Kathleen,
    what a pretty Christmas table. I love red Christmas tables and your salad plate and bowl are too cute.
    I have started my Christmas shopping but still have ways to go.
    Have a wonderful Sunday,

  11. Hi Kathleen,
    I sure do love this Christmas table! The red and white with the gingham and the candy cane salad bowls, oh this is so me! Thanks for sharing it's so beautiful! Cindy

  12. The red and white is one of my favorites. Did you get some of the pieces from CVS? I remember your story of having Mike stop by CVS stores to get dishes on sale.

  13. No, Cynthia, these were all from Pottery Barn Outlet, on sale..
    The snowman plates I have in red were from'll see them again this December I am sure! ")

  14. Christmas is my favorite time of years, but its hard to think about when its 100 degrees outside.
    But it will be here before we know it. At least I have started a little Christmas shopping.

    Your table is beautiful Kathleen. Love the red and white
