Merry Christmas 2012!

Wishing those of you who celebrate Christmas a very Merry Christmas!

This year we are having a very simple Christmas celebration with a retro-themed table.

Christmas 2012

I used a white tablecloth found at a yard sale underneath the vintage Christmas tablecloth which was my grandmother’s. I also used my grandmother’s flatware.

Grandma's Silver

I used green charger plates (purchased on sale after Christmas one year at Walmart) and layered red Temptations Polka Dot dinner plates next. Topping the dish stack is a holly-shaped salad/dessert plate which was a thrift store find.

Yard sale treasures abound in this holiday tablescape. The Radko Christmas tree cookie jar was a yard sale find. It looks at home in the center of the setting. I have also used water goblets from a large set of glassware I found at a yard sale.

Vintage Poinsettia Napkin Rings

Vintage metal poinsettia napkin rings are used on sweet red napkins – yard sale and thrift buys respectively.

Here is a close up of the detail on the vintage tablecloth.


This little Santa and Angel belong to my daughter. I love unwrapping this precious reminder of Christmas each year.

I love searching for dishes for tablescaping. That leads me to yard sales and thrift shops and fun, fun, fun.

  4. Tammy I just love the vintage tablecloth it also took me back to my childhood in the 60’s. Your grandmother’s flatware is really pretty and I love that detail. Thanks for visiting my blog. I’ll stop back again. The whole table scene is happy and uplifting, just what I’m wishing for your new year -Happy New Year! Sandi
