Tablescape Tuesday

I have often admired the creative gals who share their beautiful table settings each Tuesday.  Very don't have guests for dinner very much, so I never had one to share.  Last night, we had some neighbors over for a holiday dinner and I wanted the table to look extra festive.  I took this shot before I lit the candles and if I could have, would have added more bling to the table.

I found the red chargers at a garage sale this summer and I think I only paid $2.00 for them, got to love a bargain!  I had the place mats but just found the red linen napkins at Target; added some fake Holly to them and loved this look.  The red candle luminaries were from another garage sale and I added little tea lights as well.  I had some gold spirals that I also put on the table; I can tell you that it was so fun to get so festive.  The water glasses were from an estate sale that dear hubby had found years ago but forgot we had. 
A great time was had by all and I think I've been bitten by the tablescape bug, I want to do it again.
Hope you are staying warm today, it was -2 last night and just 5 degrees here this morning. 
Blessings,  Noreen

  4. very pretty. MOM has one table Christmas table runner. Well it's Christmasy one one side and just red on the other. Mom just flipped it to the Christmas side yesterday. That's it for festive table settings in our house. Your's looks much better.

  5. Beautiful. Presentation makes food taste so much better. I can just imagine the warm conversation you had as you ate with precious friends.

  6. A beautiful tablescape for C'mas, I love the dishes and placemats. I love your red glasses, very pretty everything. You were lucky like me, I won in our local C'mas store a $200 certificate for teaching how to create a traditional tree several years ago, so I got tons of things too! Lots of hugs, FABBY

  7. Looks GREAT! Of course, mom is stuck on the red and white theme for this CHRISTmas.
