3 Christmas Tables & A Snowy Christmas Cottage

Welcome to the 587th Tablescape Thursday!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you! Since Christmas is just a week away, for this week’s Tablescape Thursday I’m sharing three of my fave Christmas tables from the past.

This would be a fun table to re-create for my grandsons one day. If you have a collection of small lit houses, consider using them as your centerpiece for your holiday table. (Click the link below to see detailed views of this table.)

I love using natural elements in a centerpiece whenever possible. Greenery from the garden is an inexpensive way to create a beautiful centerpiece. This one is a combination of holly and magnolia from the garden combined with lemons, limes and a small pineapple. (Click the link below to see detailed views of this table.)

Last night as I left my son’s home to run a quick errand, I noticed how beautiful a neighbor’s home looked with candles in the window and their outdoor lantern decorated for Christmas. We have a lot of snow here right now and it’s way too cold for this warm-weather loving girl!

Snow for Christmas

 

Though not a Christmas setting, since I’m surrounded by snow I’m including this snowy table in today’s Christmas roundup. (Click the link below to see detailed views of this table.)

I always worry my birds back home when I’m away, especially during the winter months. I’m going to buy some seed today for the feeder I hung here this past summer. There are so many birds here! I love seeing them come to the feeder during my visits. Do you have lots of birds coming to your feeders right now?

Hope you are staying warm this Christmas! I have a few errands today that will take me back out into the cold, but after that, I’ll be inside wrapping gifts and sipping on hot chocolate. That’s the plan! 🙂

Looking forward to all the beautiful tables linked for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!

  4. Merry Christmas Susan to you and your family! Hope Santa is good to your grandsons and you! You are a very generous and good grandmother. Keep warm!

  5. Amazing as always!

  6. Love the Dept 56 table. So creative! I thought about getting mine out this year but grandchildren are 18 months and 3. I think I better wait on that. Wanted to tell you that you inspired me to go back to beaded garland on the tree. Had to look at your pictures for draping and it helped a lot. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Stay warm. Your birds have to be happy!

    • So glad the photos helped. It can be frustrating but I love how it looks on the tree. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and an awesome New Year!

  7. Merry Christmas, Susan. Thank you for all of your posts. They are a wonderful Christmas present to me. The village table is my all time favorite, although I love all of your tables. The snow angel story with your grandson brought tears to my eyes. So sweet!

  8. Have a fabulous feast with your munchkins. Big and small.
    Sit by the fire, feet up and drink a hot mulled wine or toddy of your choice.
    Look around, toast yourself from all of us you make happy during the year.
    You may not see us, but we are all there.
    Susan, you don’t need a star. You are one.

    • Aww, Kem…thanks so much for those sweet words! Appreciate you and I’m thankful you are here reading! BIG HUGS!
      Merry Christmas! Have a wonderful New Year! Looking forward to 2020!

  9. Forget the temps and focus on that snowy Christmas feel–a classic. There must be an abundant energy and excitement around you. Happy Holidays.

    • lol Ugh, I wish I could. I’m just not cut out for cold weather. My dil said I’m hibernating when I ordered groceries from Whole Foods and had them delivered yesterday. 🙂
      Yes, two little boys are getting very excited! Merry Christmas, Mia!

  10. Your tables are lovely Susan – such great inspiration! And I love the bird table! You make life beautiful for everyone! 🙂

  11. Absolutely enchanting!
    Thank you Susan for sharing so many beautiful pictures with all of us.
    My little girl just turned 3. For Christmas she wants to help me bake
    gingerbread men cookies. Her interest in gingerbread men is from your website! We are both fans. Susan, do you have a recipe to share that you’ve used for Christmas? From our home to yours, Merry Christmas!

    All the tables are lovely. Love that “Winter Greetings” by Lenox, it is so beautiful. I have a few pieces and cherish it. Glad you made it north safe and sound. I know this will be a special Christmas for you as the boys are at that fun age. Enjoy your hot chocolate and a nice fire. Merry Christmas!

    • I love that pattern, too. I should use it more often, really all throughout the winter. Thanks, Cyndi! They are sooo much fun at this age. 🙂 Merry Christmas to you! XXX

  15. Just gorgeous! Your Colonial Williamsburg setting is swoon-worthy!

  16. I agree with Cyndi – all the tables are lovely. I’m not sure which is my favorite but am leaning towards the beautiful Winter Greetings by Lenox as well. Thank you for all your ideas and inspiration, and as always, for hosting. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  17. That table is really “for the birds”. Great idea. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  18. I’ve enjoyed all your tables and it’s good to see these three again. You have the perfect dining room for lovely tablesettings, particularly during the holidays. Thanks for inviting us in during such a busy time. May you have a very merry Christmas!

  19. Thank you so much for hosting. I am excited to share my Christmas home tour, porch decorations and DIY holiday decor. Happy Holidays!
