Winter Wonderland Santa

I wanted a different look on the dining table.  Last year I bought a thrift store scarf that is filled with winter images of snow in winter white and blues.  I put it on my table on a white tablecloth and added my blue Santa with several small snowman. pine trees, and silver ribbon.  Small silver glass ornaments are nestled around them.

The printable is sized 10″ x 8″. Read More

Pink Easter Table

Spring means soft pastels to me and lots of pink. Today’s table was inspired by beautiful porcelain candlestick holders, napkin rings, and spring floral plates.  Last year I found these beautiful candlestick holders with hand-made porcelain flowers at my favorite thrift store. I immediately bought them and put them away for spring. Last month I found these matching napkin rings at the same store. I’m not sure where they were hidden when I bought the candlesticks, but they are perfect for my Easter table.  Each napkin ring flower is different.
