Tablescape Thursday

It's Tablescape Thursday on Christmas Eve, and my table is ready for today's dinner. We will have dinner right after we attend candle light service. Hubby will be fixing pork tenderloin and roasted potatoes...he's a really good cook!
I set the table very simply using my Blue Willow plates.

My sister gave me the poinsettia for Thanksgiving Day...I'm glad is still alive!

I filled the cake plate with a few retro ornaments that belong to my in-laws. I treasure them!

The butter dish was given to me by my sister-in-law Carla.

I bought the blue glass plates at Cost Plus many years ago, and I use them as chargers. Many years ago I was so much in love with blue!!!

I found the tablerunner at Big Lots for $3 - 50% off sale!!! The tealights are from $ store.
I layered the white tablecloth over a burgundy tablecloth. I found this tablecloth over the summer at a garage sale in my neighborhood. It was so cheap I couldn't resist getting it.

The glasses are milk glasses. It's a set of 6 glasses and a pitcher.

Be sure to visit Susan of "Between Naps On The Porch" to view beautiful tablescapes by so many talented bloggers!


  1. Beautiful! I love to use the blue and white with a Christmas theme. Love the ornies in the cake dome. Great idea!

    Merry Christmas! Many blessings to you and your precious family.


  2. Just passing by, as I take a short break in between all the tasks and preparations I try to finish up with, as best I can, this Christmas Eve!... But I wanted to say I love your tablescape! I have ALWAYS loved the color blue, and still do!... Love the toile patterned plates! I just recently ran across some purple ones, and am seriously thinking of purchasing them, as I have NEVER seen PURPLE ones before! It was just a set of 5, maybe 6 plates, but VERY pretty, I thought!.. Anyways.. Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas! ~tina
