Whew, that was a lot of tablescaping!

Finally, I’d like to share one of my Christmas photos.  We have about 30 family members for Christmas Eve.  One of our favorite traditions is the Christmas pageant performed by all of the young cousins.  This picture was taken at the end of the pageant, when the children sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.

I also want to share that we had snow in Arkansas on Christmas Day!  I know some of you are asking what is all the excitement about.  We seldom get snow in Arkansas, and never on Christmas Day (The last time was 100 years ago! No, that was not in my lifetime.), so give me a break while I celebrate our little Christmas Day snow.

I am linking to Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  I don’t know about all of you, but all holiday celebrations have me wondering what day of the week it is for days after the holiday.  If I’m not too late for it, I’ll also link to Cuisine Kathleen for Let’s Dish Wednesday.  Thank you for stopping by to review my year of tablescapes.  laurie

Ha! I'm with you, Laurie! I get all discombobulated when a holiday falls on a weekday! I am so turned around this week!!! It's fun to look back at various tablescapes from the past year with you. I think my very favorite was the cowboy one you did for your husband Paris table was a close second. You really had some good ones in 2012! That's so nice that you have a Christmas pageant!!! The kids look like they were really into it! LOTS of girls!!!!!!! Looking forward to your creative energy again in 2013. Have a safe and happy New Year!!! Oh, and congratulations on the snow! We here in the Kansas City area are glad it came to YOU instead of us!!! We had enough of it last week to last awhile!!! :-)

Carol said...

Your tablescapes are so inspirational! I love the idea of a Christmas pageant at your house on Christmas Eve. What adorable children! Happy New Year, Laurie!

Smiles,
Carol

Sarah said...

Laurie, it definitely looks like you had a winter wonderland for your white Christmas. It's cold here, but no snow.
Enjoyed looking back at all your beautiful tables capes. Cute photo of the grands! How is the baby?
Thinking of you! Happy New Year........Sarah

Dewena Callis said...

Hi Laurie, beautiful tables, but I have to vote on the cowboy table for first place. But your family's children deserve the grand prize for adorableness! What a nice tradition!

Love the snow!

I'm looking forward to your 2012 tables.

Laurie I could have sworn I hit the 3 key, obviously I meant I was looking forward to 2013 tables!

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

I know that I missed some the 2012's earlier posts. The evening in Paris is super fun and creative. You are a pro, Laurie.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh I know what you mean Laurie...my days are so jumbled right now.
You had so many gorgeous tablescapes, you should be proud!
Love the family pics and the snow!!!
Nothing like a white Christmas even every 100 years...and that is amazing.
Hugs friend,
Cindy

Beautiful posts! Gorgeous settings. The children are adorable.
Hope you had a dazzling Christmas.

Hope to see you on my blog:)

A Very Happy New Year to you and yours!

Greetings from Singapore~ Sanghamitra

A Perfect Setting said...

All of your tables are so beautiful, I can't pick a favorite! The picture of the little angels at the end is adorable. Enjoy your snow while you have it! Happy New Year!

kitty said...

Your tables are all lovely! We had snow in Dallas on Christmas Day and its still here! Happy New Year!

ellen b. said...

Lovely through the year review. It is fun to get snow when it's not a common happening. So cool. Blessings in the New Year!

Pansylee VanMeteren said...

Looks like you've had an awesome Christmas celebration... not to mention the snow too! You must have truly missed it. :) The kids in your family are all adorable. Have a wonderful new year Laurie! :)

Tammy at Tammy Loves Dishes said...

Laurie, I thoroughly enjoyed the review of your tablescapes. Eye candy, each and every one of them.

Wishing you a wonderful 2013!
Tammy

Marigene said...

Oh, so many great tables, Laurie...my favorite is the one done in Quimper. I only have a cup in it, so I am jealous of anyone that has enough to set a table!
We escaped the snow on Christmas Day, but certainly not the cold!
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy New Year.

The Tablescaper said...

I love this time of the year, when we get to review our favorite tables throughout the past year. Your tables are amazing. It's hard to figure out which I like best.

You put your whole spirit into each and every table! I always love to see what you're up to.

Debbie said...

I just scrolled through this three times thinking that I was going to choose a favorite for 2012 before I realized that I can't. I just plain like them all.

I'm so glad you had a nice Christmas, and like you I have no clue what day it is. I think it's Friday so I missed the parties completely.

Oh well!!

Meredith said...

I'm visiting from Let's Dish. Your tables are beautiful. Love your snowy picture too!

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

All beautiful, Laurie! but...I bet you know which one is my favorite! You have such a wonderful collection of unusual pieces of Quimper ware! Love all those lug bowls with the frenchy names! Thanks for the look back!...hugs...Debbie

vignette design said...

What fun looking at all your tablescape creations for the year! I'm still in love with your tartan plaid plates, but if I had to pick my favorite, it would be the quimperware table. I just love that pattern and how you mixed it with the red tablecloth.
Happy New Year Laurie! ~Delores

Palomasea said...

What a talent you are, dear Laurie! Thank you so much for sharing your gift for design, and welcoming us into your warm and beautiful home...each photo is one inspiration after another!!! I just love it all...
And what a beautiful family!
Congrats on that snow...what a sweet treat that must have been!!!
Thank you for your very kind and lovely message...I appreciate it very much, dear friend...
May the New Year bring much love, good health, plenty of blessings, and continued oodles of creativity!
Hugs,
- Irina

Denise Marie said...

Great recap. Love the cousin play!

Kathleen said...

Loved seeing your past scapes, those tartan plates hopped off the page!
Adorable pageant, it is what Christmas is all about!
Happy 2013, dear Laurie! Many blessings and good health!
Almost time for your Valentine's Party?

Hi Laurie- What do you do in your spare time ? All your tables are lovely and also, what a lovely family. Love little blonde girls :-)
I have to go see what's up with my sad blog. All my picture's have an x in them. Seems strange with nothing there. I am wondering what it is like if someone in monkeying with them. You have stuck in there for ages, haven't you.
Good work!
