Our daughter's family will be arriving later Christmas Day, so we'll have just four around the breakfast table that morning -- my husband, son, daughter-in-law, and me. The simple centerpiece includes two miniature live evergreens in pots topped with "snow" and two Father Christmases handed down to me from my mother-in-law's collection.
These cute salad plates were the inspiration for this table. I bought them after Christmas last year at Crate and Barrel Outlet.
I added my red glasses and green placemats, and we're using the silver flatware at breakfast since it's Christmas!
I've had the napkins, also from Crate and Barrel, for several years, but they seem made for these plates. I like the lime green mixed with the more traditional green and red in the Joy design.
Here's another view that shows my silver pattern, Lunt Belvedere.
Here's a closer look at one of the Father Christmases.
In the background of this view is our 30+ year old Advent calendar, made by my mother when our daughter was little. The chair back blocks the little candy-filled pockets for each day. You can also glimpse our living room Christmas tree on the left.
Here's one more view of the table, looking toward the baker's rack.
Thank you for visiting, and I hope you will leave a comment before you leave. I will be linking to Susan's Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
