Emily is named for two of her great-great-grandmothers. Emily's mother, my daughter-in-law, has a wonderful, large set of Friendly Village dishes from her great-grandmother. They've been packed away since they moved to a new house earlier this year, so during nap time for mother and baby, I unpacked a few for them to use when the other grandparents visit at Christmas. Of course, I couldn't resist doing a little tablescape with these pretty dishes!
Their dining table already had a plaid runner and candlesticks, and right outside their front door are holly bushes covered with red berries, so those comprised the centerpiece.
I used the School House dinner plate and the square Covered Bridge salad plates..
Here are a few more views of the table.
