Welcome to the 67th Tablescape Thursday!
I’ve had this table setting in my heart for years and this had to be about the most fun I’ve ever had creating a tablescape. Seriously, I was 10 years old all over again, at least for the day.
I left the pics large so you can click on them to get a bigger view. Just hit the back arrow to return. Several folks have asked if we ate at this table. We did! I definitely want to recreate this one again for another Christmas sometime. Hope you enjoy. Here’s some Home Alone music to enjoy while you tour this little fantasy land.
Old Chelsea Mansion…Residence of Clement C. Moore, author of “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” better known as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas…
Feeding the birds…
Dashing through the snow…
The view from Santa’s sleigh…
China: Lenox, Holiday
Stemware: All by Waterford: Iced Beverage/Tea-Araglin Wine-Crimson Hock Champagne-Twelve Days of Christmas Collection
Flatware: Towle, King Richard
Napkins: Martha Stewart
Houses: Dept. 56, Snow Village Collection, Collected 15+ years ago
So many folks have asked about the Dept. 56 lit houses…how they are lit and where I have hidden the wires. All the Dept. 56 houses come pre-wired and have a bulb that fits into the back. I’ve run the cords down the center of the table behind the houses. When I put the center leaf in the table, I left a crack just large enough to fit all the cords single file through the crack. Under the table, they are all plugged into each other…they are designed to plug into one another in kind of a piggyback style. Then I’ve plugged them into an extension cord and I’ve run that one cord across the floor to an outlet under the sideboard. So, that’s the only electrical cord that’s visible.
Merry Christmas from my home to yours! Looking forward to seeing your beautiful tablescapes!
