Christmas Blogger Block Party - Tablescape


I am having two friends for a really small lunch tomorrow, so I thought I would use my new Christmas Dishes.  Can you believe that I have never had any Christmas dishes.  I just always use my China, but these are so fun, so I had to play.



These are my latest GW find.  Since there were 8 of them, I had to have them.


Dinner plates, I like the old fashioned decorated tree.  These are simple stoneware dishes, nothing fancy, but fun.

With 25% off they were 75cents each.


Salad or desert plates.

These came to 52 cents each.  Yes, I know, that is called stealing.

I thought my little rooster centerpiece was perfect for the informal dishes and occassion.







A red placemat, white napkin and a green stem finish off the simple setting.  (Yes, I just noticed the fork is crooked. ) Oh well, just keeping it real.





We're all set for a simple lunch of Quiche and Salad.





I am linking with No Minimalist Here for Holiday Dining

I am still trying to make all the rounds to everyone, such a busy time of year.  I do appreciate everyone that has stopped by and linked up to TTT.  I hope to visit more this week.  Your visits and your comments mean the world to me, thank you.

  25. The things you find at GW! I never see anything like that at ours. I love the simplicity of the old fashioned tree. You made me laugh at, "that's called stealing".

  26. Seriously, that is like stealing. I think I get good deals and then I read about your deals and I realize I got robbed (Lol). Table looks gorgeous, as always. Great plates.

  31. Marty I have the same pattern on my dishes but they are just plain white...I love them. So funny that they came in other styles. Im using mine for Christmas breakfast.

    You always set such a nice table and have a beautiful home all year round.
