Christmas Take 3....

Okay, Okay...I know....

I promise this is the last Christmas week I will be semi-back on track!

This tablescape is extra special to me, because of my dishes that I received as a gift from my niece and nephew here in Germany. I am one lucky Auntie..... I was overwelmed when I unpacked 4 large boxes.....I have a complete setting for 12! It includes,  lunch and dinner plates, soup bowl and soup plates, coffee and tea cups and serving dishes!!!!!

The stemware you have seen before.......a gift from Irene and Chris

and yet another new husband and I argue if it is for wine or cognac....   
This was a special gift from Heinke and Thorsten.

And in memory of my mom.....The wooden figur used to sit on our radio in the house I grew up in.

Do the place card holders look familar? They are from my niece Heidi´s Wedding

The napkin ring holders come from my friend Kirstina... I am pretty sure that they are not meant to be napkin holders....but it works!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend.....Mine will be a busy  one filled with baking, exercising and working in the ice cream parlor....yes I have a new job! Very grateful

Christmas Tablescape----Take 2

Yes, I know it is almost Valentine´s Day and I should be posting about the upcoming holiday....but I am still playng catch up! I could have waited till the next Christmas Season to share this tablescape with you, but........ well, there was no way I was going to be able to that patient. You see, this is the first time that the pictures were taken with help of some great camera equipment, that my son brought home. He is studying film at the DbS in Berlin and a few weeks ago had some film work to do and so I got to play with the equipment! Lucky me! THEN, my son took the pictures and made them so much better with the help of his Christmas Present...and iMac! (the Christkind delivers the gifs to children of all ages in Germany and was very generous this year!)

I am simply in love with the pictures and that is why there are soooooooo many....

The main attraction of this tablescape are the reindeer. The green ones are on loan from my new job...Dolci Eis Lounge in Teltow. The other ones are a loan from my scrapbooking friend Nancy! Many thanks to both!

....and of course, some of my decorations are edilbe(and matching in color)

Mardi Gras Beads....from New Orleans. I would say these are about 40 years old....My husband keeps everything!

As all of you know by now, I have an obession with Christmas Bulbs....and so when we were shopping at our favorite Nursery  in Holland before the Holidays, I just had to have these.....

The cloth napkins were found at Zara Home..a store very similar to Pier One and Crate&Barrel. I have to admit, I when I am at this store I feel like I am back in the states! The beeded napkin ring holders are actually your hair....I found them in Munich years ago and bought them for a Halloween Tablescape... The charger plates come from Depot the outlet store(the only one of its kind and it is located in Cloppenburg, where I used to live)

The green candle votives are a donation from a Chef Jill.She moved away recently and was so kind in giving me some of her tablescape collection.

Happy Tablescaping Everyone......
