Peace, Hope and Joy Tablescape

 
Welcome to Red Couch Recipes.  I hope your Christmas season is going well. We had some friends over for dinner the other night, and this is the table that we set.
 
We bought these plates several years ago at Wal-Mart.  I love them.  I have the Peace, Joy, and Hope tables.  Please excuse the quality of the pictures, they were taken at night. 
 
 
 
 
Since we made two moves within a year, I have not been able to find all of our things, including some of my napkins.   I used two different napkins.  Which do you like most?  The cream....
 
 
 
Or the red and white toile?  The little desk top poinsettia is perfect for a centerpiece -- low enough for you to see the person across the table.
 
 
Our area suffered a major windstorm on November 17, and many were out of power for days, some for over 8 days.  A major proble was the beautiful pine trees that fell on the power lines.  I picked up some the greens from a downed tree for some greenery on this table and for around the home.  I guess that is like making lemonade out of lemons. 
 
 
I always like to give a glass peak shot.   
 
 
 
 
 I do like the traditional colors at Christmas, not all of the time, but a lot of the time.
 
I hope you find some peace, joy, and hope in this holiday season.
 
Thanks for dropping by my Couch.
