Good evening, welcome to the start of the Christmas Parade of Dishes! Many towns start the season with a parade, so why not our holiday dishes?
I am using Lenox Tartan tonight, with a gold charger, and gold trimmed flatware by Wallace.
The tablecloth is from Home Goods, and picked up some of the colors in the plate.
I used a wreath to surround the antique cream soup bowls by Noritake. My friend Marigene from In the Middle of Nowhere sent them to me a few years ago. They are trimmed in gold like the plate.
A burgundy napkin from CTS is held by the gold ring from Target. The gold ornament place card holder is from Michael's.
The centerpiece is a sugared fruit wreath with a set of battery operated lights woven through.
I used a large hurricane filled with little pine cones and a candle in the middle.
The stemware is an an etched glass trimmed with gold.
I got the plates at the Lenox Outlet. They have a sale every year, and they are 10 dollars a plate, then I use my coupon for another 20 off. I only have dinner plates, as I have the full service of Lenox Christmas Eternal that I use for formal dinners. I just loved these though, so I have bought a few every year.
Hope your holiday preparations are going well. They are a snail's pace here!
Have you started your holiday baking yet?
A stack of cookies in a cute mug, this one has a cover, makes a cute gift.
Tied with a bow, and an ornament from WS outlet, makes it even better!
Time to start the parade of plates, bring on Christmas!
