We don't have snow here right now, but Christmas Eve was a blizzard in many parts of our state.  It was delightful to see all the beautiful scenes around Oklahoma, even as many found themselves stranded for the holidays.  This was inspiration for my snowflake table.

I have a beautiful cross with a snowflake in the center and a snow couple that sat on the cabinet behind the table.  I collect snow people and this is a set from  my collection.

 The centerpiece was a collection of candles and snowflakes.  The glass ornament with a snowflake inside lights up.

 The place settings have a snowflake place card holder.  The card is a gift tag with snowflakes on them.  The napkins have silver stitching with holly leaves actually, but the way I have them folded all you can see are the points. I have tucked a snowflake ornament in the napkin ring.

The salad plates are Lenox Federal from the Holiday Collection, the dinner plates are from WalMart.

The water goblets are Raphael pattern by Gorham, and the wine glasses I picked up at Dollar Tree. I liked the ornament hanging from the glasses.

The center piece before being lit....

and after.  What a pretty glow from the candles.

Christmas Table

Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, I get to share my tables with everyone.  Welcoming and hospitality are important in our culture.  It is nice to be able to be welcoming, even with our blogs.

So, welcome to my Christmas table.

I realize it is late to post Christmas table pictures, but after all, Christmas was a Thursday, and New Year's Eve got away from me.

The little bear sitting on his "tuffet" are salt and pepper shakers from Lenox.

The holly and ribbon glasses I picked up off of ebay.  I do not know the manufacturer on these.

 The bell shaped candy or nut plate is Spode.  The green sandwich glass plate I picked up from an antique store.

 The centerpiece is cheerful silk poinsettias in a vase from a flower shop.

 The salad plates are Lenox Federal holiday collection.

The dinner plates are Creation Green by Block Spal.

The pair of these cute little vintage train candle holders were a gift from a friend.

The candy cane provides a ready after dinner mint for fun!
