Update: A Very Merry Christmas

(Updated) A Very Merry Christmas Table

I was a bit rushed putting out my Christmas tablescape post.  I have come up with a few updates.  I gathered up some fresh greens after a church party (they were throwing them away!), made a bunch of snow globes (I’ll post those later), and added a Santa and Elf to the mix.

A few years ago my friend LaRee brought this beautiful Santa back from her travels in Russia.  It fits my house and table perfect!  I LOVE this Santa (thanks LaRee)!

I also moved my Vintage Jewelry Christmas Tree into my dining area so guests would have some eye candy when they looked up from eating.

Each place setting has it’s own snow globe.  Guests choose where to sit based on which snow globe they want to take home!

I kept the details from the previous table shown below. (I have a tutorial for the Merry Christmas Burlap runner ribbon)Christmas Gifts Tablescape

He’s hard to see, but he’s there on the table.  Who doesn’t love a little vintage elf.  Another great gift inherited from my husband’s late Grandma Jessie. Santa and Snow Globe Table

I hope you like the updates, I am ready for a party!

I wanted a little height with the color so I threw mini apples in each goblet.  Besides, we are probably going to be drinking Martinelli’s anyway!

The tiny boxes in the vase and on the table are from my advent calendar ornaments. Christmas Tablescape
I made the pine cone groupings last year to tuck in my tree, but I’m going to have to make more, I LOVE them on the chairs!  I used cinnamon pine cones, painted the tips a mix of gold and silver toll paint making a nice champagne.  Then I wired each one and tied them to a ribbon from a giant Costco spool.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a beautiful dinner table too!
