Countdown 'til Christmas ~ Day 8/Festive Tablescape

...in our Formal Dining Room...



China: Noritake Squirewood
{The colors on the china are gray and black, not blue as they appear in the pictures.}
Kevin and I found this eight piece set of china at a Pawn Shop in Myrtle Beach, a couple of years ago, for $100. The coffee pot and cream & sugar were included in the set.
The deer were found at Dollar Tree last year.
Only had 4 vintage green glasses, found at a yard sale, so I added 2 Noritake Swirl glasses {wedding gifts}, at the heads of the table, to round out the six settings.






Santa on the buffet...

For those of you who may not have heard,
Melanie's {Bella~Mella Blog} 12 year old son,
Andrew,
passed away Tuesday.
As she said in her own words,
...Andrew is now smiling down from Heaven!
If you would like to show Melanie and her family some much needed love and send your prayers, her button is on my sidebar.

Rhonda, Your table is lovely. I especially love the beautiful candle holder. Reindeer are big this year, and the reindeer that meets each of your guests at their placesettings are such a treat. The tree in your dinning room is over-the-top! And speaking of top, what is that great topper. I have just loved my visit with you~
Merry Christmas!

Oh what beautiful china! And those deer look quite elegant on each plate -- amazing what you can "dress up" from the dollar store!
