Red and Green Christmas Whimsy



At Red Couch Recipes, you know I love red and I also love lime green at Christmastime.  Come on and sit a bit at my table.

The table is set and we are ready to eat a fine Christmas feast.  The red bowls, red dinnerplates, and green salad plates are just some of my everyday dishes.


The footed cake platter was a gift from my sister Jacqueline, Purple Chocolat Home, a Christmas or two ago.  I just love those footed cake platters -- so cute and whimsical.


The green mugs are a new addition to my holiday dishware.  I have 5 in green and 5 in red.  They go perfectly with the red and green pitcher.  They were $1.00 at Tai Pan Trading.


I bought quite a few dozen of those icy candy canes years ago at a craft store.  I festooned them on my cellophane bags of toffee that I gave out and thankfully saved enough to decorate my trees.


Here's a long shot.  I love those oversized jingle bells that add to the whimsical feeling of this table.


The little footed bowl was purched at TJ Maxx and more last year.  So cute.



Thanks for dropping by my Whimsical Christmas Table.

Soooo cute Joni and I love the red and bright green together too. What an eye you have for collecting fabulous accessories. It all goes so well and I wish I had some of it for my girlfriend luncheon tomorrow. Was the gift from Jackie? It just has her name stamped all over it. I simply love the two of you and the great things you share on your fun blogs....pinning!
