After having a meal in the dining room I clear off the table and put either my monster flower arrangement back or create something new. This time it is something new.
Since it is Christmas and I am "moving and shaking" things up, I came up with this simple tablescape for our Christmas day dinner.
The tureen has a mix of mercury glass balls that I have collected over the years along with silver plastic ones.
I am always mixing cheap and collectibles. Often times it works just fine. This time it does.
Salad plates are fairly inexpensive...and they can serve as nice snack plates for cocktail parties, birthday parties, etc.
Here is an overhead view of my pretty tureen and greenery. No flash, just the candlelight with my camera set for low light/night.
My family is used to me...I have candles out during the Christmas season!
And besides, everyone looks so pretty by candlelight!
I just realized that I took my photos before I put glasses on the table. There is time though.
Joyeux Noël mes amis!
