I recently told you that I had lost some of my brain cells. “Howevah”, I haven’t lost so many that I think it is December, and I don’t have a Christmas in July celebration either. But, I did pull out some Christmas décor for our recent plaid picnic.
Yes, I normally use these napkins for Christmas celebrations. And yes, the green flatware with the reds probably suggests Christmas colors.
Um, yes, those are Christmas napkin rings too.
The salad plate is Comptoir de Famille, and I do use these year round, with the exception of Christmas. I don’t think I’ve ever used them at Christmas time - hum, I may consider doing that next Christmas.
I also use my Fitz and Floyd Country Plaid dinner plates throughout the year, but I will admit they look a little like Christmas.
The green Ball jars and the red stems might make you think it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
And yes, the green Depression Glass plates and the little red butter pots are also Christmas colors.
The Scotty salt and pepper shakers get year-round use at our house.
I thought that the addition of a yellow plaid metal box would un-Christmas the table.
I have used the vintage red plaid picnic basket and thermos for Christmas décor, but surely a picnic basket cannot be considered a Christmas item, right?
So you see, our red plaid picnic table has absolutely nothing to do with the Christmas holidays. Got it? Thank you for coming to my picnic, and Merry…um… picnic days. laurie
