Getting the Christmas Tree Tablescape

I walked into Wal-Mart and could not resist these plates by Better Homes and Gardens.  I do not need new Christmas salad plates, but they beckoned and I answered.  I love the scene that it evokes, of times when we used to get a fresh tree.  In my childhood we did have wood-paneled station wagon, not quite as cool, and we used to go cut down our trees.

I set the table with these green napkins that I bought at Wal-Mart several years ago and the napkin rings I bought from the Style Sisters.

Here's a side view of the table.

Another view of the table.

I added a little candy cane interest with these candles and...

the candy canes on the table.

This table makes me smile!

I will share the recipe for the Cranberry Cheese Cake Bars soon.

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. Those plates ARE darling! I'd better stay out of Wal-Mart! Your table is lovely -- very festive, and yet "real," not over-the-top. Very welcoming!

  2. Those plates are amazing! I know how they can just jump into your cart without you even knowing it! So fun!

  3. Joni, your table is so pretty. Very welcoming. I love those plates. I looked all over for the car plates, since I just did a vintage car tablescape. I did buy the the deer plates by BH&G. I don't need any more plates either, but I love the look. You thought of everything for this table. Makes me smile too.

  4. So festive and the dessert looks delicious but from Santa I think you should ask for a Woodie Wagon so you can use in your Table Scape (next year) ... ☺. IF you cannot find one; you might wish to search as they do have a 'Revell 49 Mercury Wagon Plastic MODEL KIT' @ $24.99 (US $$$) that you could put together and paint up yourself. Before signing off; wishing you and yours A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS. -Brenda-

  5. Sorry, that should have read: "Revell 49 WOODY Wagon Plastic Model Kit." -Brenda-
