Dear Red Couch Readers, welcome to my Christmas Snowmen Table. I have had these cute snowmen salad plates for a long time, but haven't featured them in a table for several years. I love them, they just make me smile :). I also have matching mugs, but didn't use them today!
Here is a photo of the stack. I added some little red bowls which we use all the time.
The centerpiece is my red lantern, festooned a bit for Christmas.
Just a close up of the festooning.
What would Christmas be without my red goblets. For years our Christmas Angel, Aunt Ionia, would host Christmas Eve at her home for all the Culp clan. At the "adult" table, she always used her King's Crown goblets. My sisters presented me with these red goblets in memory of those magical evenings. Later my sister Jacqueline sent me some King's crown that she purchased on ebay.
The plaid of the napkin is different than the plaid of the tablecloth, but I think it works -- at least for me. The other day after my daughter's Christmas recital, I found some pinecones on the ground, and began to gather them. One of my daughter's helped -- we made a funny picture in our dress clothes scrounging for pinecones.
Right behind my table is my red and white tree; I love the boldness of this tree, and especially love all the felt ornaments. There are red lights on this tree.
Another shot of the tree.
