Christmas Tablescapes and Centerpieces from…

… Christmases Past, mixed in with some accents here and there. Tablescapes and making centerpieces are probably my favorite aspects of homemaking.

As you can see, blown glass ornaments are definitely not just for the tree. Since I only do floral sprays accented regular Christmas balls on our Christmas trees whenever we put up a tree, I get to have all sorts of fun with my small collection of treasured European blown glass ornaments.

The very first Christmas centerpiece I made one of the earlier years of my marriage, and yes, we are still using the original pillar candle. :)

One of my favorite Christmas centerpieces – an antique rotating painted nativity scene within the Christmas pyramid.

Natural accents – the Heavenly Bamboo berries are just simply, heavenly! They last a couple of months without any deterioration.

  8. Hi! I love your post! I have a rotating, candle-driven nativity very similar to yours. Mine is natural, not the green and red coloring. I love mine. I haven’t been able to use it recently because of all our cats. I may just have to get it out anyway. Thanks for the reminder :).

    Please feel free to stop by my blog and visit anytime.

  9. Your tablescapes are truly exquisite — they look as if you are setting a table for royalty. So gorgeous.

    Enjoy your festive holidays & Merry Christmas to you!
