red and white Christmas
Thursday, January 27, 2011
This is my first tablescape I've posted. We are not fancy folk and I don't have tons of dinner dishes. We use Corelle 'Butterfly Gold' for everyday - they still work after almost 34 years :-) I have 'good' dishes which are Denby Shamrock pattern which we use about 5 times a year. I also dug out my grandmother's flow blue dishes (what's left of them) and use them frequently. And, I have Christmas dishes which I use from mid-November through New Year's. This year I found these snowflake dishes really cheap on sale before Christmas. Why oh why didn't I buy 2 sets! There are only enough for 4 people so we have had 2 small dinner parties using them this month and we use them for every meal. I decided to set the table in a winter theme of white and silver.
This table setting is quite simple but I like the silvery, sparkly candlelight idea for a winter supper of heart- warming beef stew and home made rolls.
