Tablecapes of Christmases past

tablescape thursday

Hello everyone, can you believe it’s Thursday,  and that July is already almost over? That means Christmas is swiftly approaching, and that goose had better be getting fat. :) I am showing for this week’s Tablescapes some Christmas tablesettings I have done in the past.

My Christmas pieces are still quite limited. I only started my Spode Christmas Rose collection a few years ago, and have been rather slow in adding to my collection. But it is still very fun to try to come up with different ways to set the table with my limited number of pieces.  Though there are a lot of color choices out there for Christmas nowadays, mine doesn’t ever veer too far from the traditional red and green:

Here you see that my Christmas ornaments are limited to just the tree:

Of course, a nice placecard holder with placecard always makes my guests feel special:

Last year, I added chocolate bars as a tablescape favor for my guests:

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.
