I set a table in front of the fireplace for a relaxed soup and sandwich supper. (We call it supper if it is a light meal and dinner if it is a heavy meal. Do you do that?) I have to tell you about the quilt that covers the table. Other bloggers are always telling about these great deals they find at Goodwill stores. I don’t live near a GW store, but when I met some other bloggers in Memphis several years ago, we went to a GW. I found this quilt for $2.00, and I’ve used it on tables every Christmas since then. It’s my one and only GW bargain.
I started the place settings with red metal chargers. I topped them with white plates (Ironstone Octagon Holiday). I forgot to remove the soup bowl for a picture of the octagon plate. Those belonged to my mother.
The soup bowls and the plate I used for serving the sandwiches are Holiday Celebrations by Christopher Radko. I received the plate as a gift with cookies on it, and I found the soup bowls at an antique mall last year.
I used Wedgewood Winter Festival for our sandwich plates.
Christmas trees on the stemware continue my Christmas tree theme.
My Mother’s wooden Christmas tree napkin rings were an obvious addition to this table.
The centerpiece is simply a plate filled with Christmas trees, including the salt and pepper shakers, which were a gift from my friend, Nancy, many years ago.
It was so nice to relax and enjoy our Christmas trees. (I’ll share more about our trees on Friday.)
I’m partying at Centerpiece Wednesday at The Style Sisters and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
