Christmas Decorating Part 2 - The Table

My table is all set for Christmas. I went with a silver and woodland theme with red touches.

I started off with a silver polka dot table cloth, a pine garland, then added silver placemats

Woodland chargers

Red dinner plates and Royal Stafford salad plates

My salad plates are new. I love the English village look of them.

Then I nestled my Mercury Glass candlesticks, deer, and large ornaments in among the pine garland.

I placed my red and silver jingle bell napkin rings on my green cloth napkins. Hm, I wonder if I should get silver napkins?

I love the glitter of the silver mixed with the touches of red and how the pine garland brings in nature.  After Christmas, I can switch out the red plates with white ones and remove the jingle bell napkin rings. Maybe I'll find some snowflake ones or something silvery. Anyway, I'm loving my table in its Christmas finery.

Have a wonderful weekend! Next up will be the mantel, tree, and a couple of other areas.


  1. Your new salad plates are really interesting! Great find Cecilia! So do you keep your table set like that all the time? Is that a table that you regularly eat on or is that just for special occasions? Part of the challenge I face is we only have one small dining table (and a kitchen island) where we eat so it has to be practical.

    I love silver and adding red really perks things up a lot. Hope you're enjoying your weekend. It is terrible weather here. Raining and last night was mixed with sleet. Ugh! Looking forward to Florida! lol

    1. Yes, I try to keep it set or otherwise, stuff would collect on it. We do eat on it...I just pick up the chargers and then reset it after we eat. The dining room is also open to the living room so I want it to look nice. I used not to keep it set but now I do and love changing it up. The breakfast room is much plainer and we eat in there a lot.

  2. Love, love, love your table! It is just beautiful....every little part! Those place mats are gorgeous. I think I "need" some! I am in love with those salad plates as well. I find if I keep my table set pretty that I am less likely to pile it high with stuff through the! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend at the B Farm!

    Blessings, Vicky

    1. Vicky, I got them at Pier One. I wanted beaded ones but good grief they were expensive! I do like these just fine. Nice and sparkly! Lol.

  3. Gorgeous table, Cecilia. Your deer & new plates are my favorites! Blessings, Cecilia

    1. I had the hardest time finding the standing deer...found him in white or gold or black but silver was hard to come by. I'm in love with my plates. Love everything about them!

  4. So very pretty Cecilia! the silver!...and looking forward to your mantel and tree!

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
