Welcome to the 119th Tablescape Thursday!
Part of the fun of Christmas is seeing the world through the eyes of a child. Tonight, you and I get to be a kid again. How about a snowball fight…or a ride in a sleigh?
This table setting features several of the pretty Dept. 56 churches.
I grouped them all around a Christmas tree. This table wouldn’t be especially practical for a dinner gathering since the tree would block the view and the snow would be in the way. But this may give you and idea for a centerpiece on a sideboard or a table where folks will not be eating.
A snowball fight…
The snow looks pretty real, doesn’t it? You can see how the snow was made in this video here: Instant Snow
The lighting of the little churches makes this table feel magical…
Salad plates are Villeroy & Boch…
Stemware is Spode Holiday…
