Cookies For Santa

Merry Christmas everyone!

This week’s tablescape, as well as our entire house has a Santa theme.  It was inspired by a little plate that I found at Walmart.  It had just enough whimsy to touch my heart.  I hope you enjoy it.

We’ve already had our first frost of the year, some areas have had some light snow flurries, the leaves are changing and Fall is most definitely here.  This was the inspiration for this week’s tablescape.  I hope you enjoy it.

Winter White Tablescape

The world seems like it’s cover with snow.  It’s been cold enough that the snow hasn’t melted yet.  Don’t get me wrong, I love looking at snow, I just hate the cold.  I think I’ve got a good case of cabin fever.  There are so many things that I want to do outside.

Instead of fighting it, I decided to go with it.  This week, I’ve created a Winter White Tablescape.

A Pink Shabby Chic Christmas Tablescape

Back in October, my husband & I went to the cemetery to visit my Mama’s grave on her birthday.   It’s hard for me to go there, I miss her so, but I always try to go on her birthday & my birthday.  I’d felt her presence all day long.  On the way home, we decided to stop at a thrift store.  I could still feel Mama close by.  When I got over to the dish section, I found these dishes.  Mama would have loved the pattern.  She loved the color pink & roses.  I’m dedicating this tablescape to my best friend, My Mama.

Pumpkins & Roses

Well, it’s still Fall, there are only a few weeks left until Thanksgiving, so pumpkins are still in order.  When I found this china, I knew the tablescape had to be done in pinks.  And, I think you’ll enjoy the surprise at the end.

Shades of Grey

I’m sure that the title of this week’s tablescape evokes thoughts of the popular book out there.  But when I was putting this tablescape together, I found myself humming the song Shades of Gray by the Monkees. It’s such a pretty melody.  If you don’t know the song, you can find it here.

Here is my Shades of Grey tablescape.  I hope you like it.
