Last week, I showed you my Winter Wonderland. However, I didn't share my table. I used mercury glass, silver reindeer, snowflakes, and a wintery garland laid on top of a red runner.
And my Christmas salad plates on top of white plates, woodland chargers, and silver placemats.
In the kitchen I went bolder and brighter ( I can't get away from traditional red and green completely!).
Santa and gingerbread men add whimsy by the sink and bring a smile
The small Santa cup is my childhood cup and the blocks are a thrifted find from Canton.
The larger Santa cup from Canton ($1 find) holds peppermint sticks:
Along with a Santa hat topper and tree skirt
The chalkboard got a new saying along with my canning jar lid tree (thanks to Donna over at Funky Junk for the idea and tutorial!)
A small sign I hand painted next to the tree reminds us not to be grumpy. :-)
Lastly, I put out my nativity. I wanted to keep it more simple this year so I just pulled out the Angel, donkey, sheep, and of course Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus. I tucked them into a small thrifted suitcase box I painted a couple of years ago. I love how it looks! I just need a good star to put above it.
Outside, we placed the J-O-Y sign I bought in Canton, along with some lighted deer.
The porch has a sleigh full of lighted glass block presents
with Rudy the red-nosed armadillo pulling it (we are in Texas, after all!), while Santa rides in a toy dump truck:
And there you have it: our city house all decked out for the holidays! I'll be sharing the Farmhouse later in the week so be sure to stop back by!
