Snowman Christmas Table


Time for Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. Hooray!



My Snowman Tablescape




Snowman was a present from my friend, Gloria many years ago.





Snowman napkins, an "after Christmas" sale last year.


Salad plates, a Thrift Store find.
















New sage colored shades for the shandy.





And here's my new "old" hutch. A wonderful price of $150 reduced from $400 at an estate sale!


Love it, and it matches my table really good, I think.





Mom's vintage Hazel Atlas goblets






Candlelight View












Here's a view of the dining room from the kitchen. I "borrowed" the red curtains from one of my bedrooms. :) The green hutch was moved into the kitchen, where it really belongs anyway.








Here's the same table before I "tweaked" it. I just didn't like the red table cloth.




Thanks for stopping by! Can't wait to see all the beautiful tables at Susan's!

I love your rooms. I'm just crazy about red checks!

I loved the snowman table, especially those salad plates with the skates on them. How perfect for the theme. I would love some like that.

Oh D, EVERYTHING looks BEAUTIFUL!! The dining room table looks so festive and cheery!... And with just a glimpse of your kitchen table runner, I loved that too, with the little bird house, so sweet!!! I'm behind in everything this year, but I'm working on it! Steady and slow, I'm hanging in there, and things ARE getting done! Wishing you blessings and lots of holiday fun in the days ahead! ~tina

Hi D! Your table looks so pretty. Did I tell you I have a mini version of your sweet china cabinet? I have a little one very similar that I use in my breakfast room.
Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,

Your wonderful new/old hutch was obviously waiting to make the trip to your house. It's perfect with your things! Darling tablescape...think you made the right choice about the red tablecloth, but I would love to see that cloth in your dining room with a heavy dose of blue or green used with it. The Atlas glasses are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your charming design. Merry Christmas! Cherry Kay

We love your table setting, you sure know how to put it all together! Where did you get the lovely bright red and white checked chair cushion from? I sure would like to have some cushions like that for my kitchen. :)
