You may have seen my “winter in the woods” mantel in my previous post. This week, we dined in the winter woods. (I can’t believe that, once again, I forgot to light a fire before I took these pictures!)

I previously shared my mantel, decorated for our New Year’s celebration. Another of our traditions (we are big on traditions) is to leave the lights on the Christmas trees after I remove the Christmas ornaments. We then throw (I’m serious) New Year’s hats, streamers, beads, etc. onto the trees and turn them into New Year’s trees.

It’s not a patriotic tablescape; just a red, white, and blue tablescape. No flags; just peacock feathers. This will be short, since we have two granddaughters staying with us this week.
I’ve had the blue and white placemats for awhile and can’t remember where I got them. The chargers were a gift from my friend, Susie. I used a blue plate by Vietri as the dinner plate. A cobalt blue canister holds peacock feathers, which were given to me by my friend, Cindy, whose mother raised peacocks.
These chargers just seem too pretty to hide under plates.
Pressed glass soup bowls (estate sale) top a white plate by Gibson. The blue and white flatware was from Kohl’s about three years ago. Individual butter cloches were from an estate sale, and both styles of blue stems were from two different estate sales.

The rusticity of this lantern reminded me of a stable, so I set my little vintage Woolworth nativity figures inside it.
If you are a minimalist, close your eyes, or leave now! I’m never a minimalist, but at Christmastime, even I admit I go
Quirky Three Kings mix with vintage and handmade cards, Santa, a bear, a snowman, and candy canes! You can’t say I’m afraid to mix things up.
Chargers: Kennex Lace; Dinner plates: Fitz & Floyd Country Plaid. Everything else: collected through the years and maker unknown.

I’m so glad you stopped in to visit. I would appreciate prayers for my daughter-in-law and unborn grandson. The due date is in March, and she has been hospitalized with problems. laurie
