93rd Table Top Tuesday


Welcome to the 93rd Table Top Tuesday.  I am so excited to seee all of your Christmas Decor.  I keep seeing snippets of all the fabulous vignettes you guys have been doing and you always amaze me with how creative and talented you are.

My goal this year is a really pared down Christmas.  I didn't change anything on the Dining table other than what was under the cloche.


A couple of Christmas ball and ribbon loops were added to the floral arrangement.



My beautiful Nativity figures that I inherited from my MIL are now displayed on the table.  Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus are under the cloche.  A wiseman, angels and a cow a gathered outside.



A simple reminder of the reason for the season.  I hope each of you stops for a minute everyday to Praise the Lord and remember his birth and all of your many Blessings.



Now, let's see what all you guys have been up to.

  52. Oh Marty you come up with the best ideas. Thats one of the reasons why I like to come here. I have a cloche and the thought of the nativity under it never ever entered my mind. And it just makes it all the more special. Very nice. And yes very creative. Thankyou for sharing such a special and meaningful idea. We are just now getting our decorations up as we have had SO much going on in our lives. Especially in the last 5 days. But I do hope to share so many wonderful things with you in the next few weeks. Thankyou for hosting. This is wonderful! As a new blogger I just feel it is such a help to get to know the bloggers who love the same things that I do. You being one of them. So looking forward to these next few weeks before Christmas. Its such a special time of year. Hugs.
