Welcome to the 120th Tablescape Thursday!
Tonight I am sharing another Christmas tablescape. I played around with two centerpieces, one with a Baldwin Brass Lantern and Candlesticks and another with fresh Rosemary topiaries and the BB lantern. Both centerpieces have Russian Nesting Dolls that I’ve collected over the years. Let me know which centerpiece you liked best…I couldn’t decide.
Topiaries are fresh rosemary…and I loved the way their fragrance filled the dining room.
Without the topiaries…
Dinnerware is Italian Countryside, paired with their holiday collection…beautiful!
French Countryside Ruby Goblets are from Mikasa. They have a subtle swirl design…sooo pretty!The wine glasses are Spode, Christmas Tree.
Flatware is Towle, pattern is King Richard.
I like using the gold and silver jingle bell napkin rings when I have gold and silver accents/colors in a table setting. It helps tie the two together.
Without topiaries…just using a Baldwin Brass Lantern and Candlesticks. The candles are from Colonial Candle.
I love the little nesting dolls. The history of nesting dolls goes back to Russia where they were called Matryoshka dolls, babushka dolls or Russian nesting dolls. Five dolls nest into the large one on the far left in this photo.
You can see the smallest of this set of six (6) on the right side of this pic. The brass lantern is Baldwin Brass and was collected 15+ year ago.
A few more…these are nesting Santas. It’s so much fun to open them to see how many are inside.
I bought these strings of gold and red beads years ago for a project, but never got around to making it. Now I have no clue what I planned to use them for…do you ever do that? Please say, YES. LOL They have been stuffed away in a box for years. I pulled them all out today and put them inside this crystal beverage dispenser to enjoy until I fill it with this Champagne Punch.
Looking forward to viewing your beautiful tablescapes! Julia at Hooked on Houses is having a Holiday Party today. Stop by Hooked on Houses and check out all the great links or join the party!
