Before showing you the dining room table I wanted to share this vignette of my antique hand painted Christmas plate I got at one of the sales I worked at several weeks ago.
We'll start at my son's end of the table...
where a parakeet napkin ring graces his plate and a salt cellar sets off to the side with its own little monogrammed spoon inside. Each place setting has their own napkin ring (which really were not used at formal dinners at that time, they were only used for everyday use), salt cellar and spoon and butter pat. The place setting is Pfaltzgraff Winter Berry pattern.
When looking up from his place setting you see this view...
and moving around to the right of the table is the butter dish...
my place setting and the centerpiece brides bowl upon a plateau mirror almost hidden by the ivy and holly.
A closer look at the enameled brides bowl and the gold enameled cranberry glass cruet bottle on the plateau mirror.
and then there is this zipper glass pickle castor and zipper glass celery vase...
moving on around past hubby's place setting is this water pitcher. I got it a couple of months ago from Richard at My Old Historic Home. That is the link that shows his booths at an antique mall near his home.
Below is a candle lit view with the gilt china cabinet in the background
and my daughter's place setting...
and then we are back around to where we started from, back to the banana pedestal bowl with wax fruit.
Now, let's fast forward to dessert and I'll show you my Buche de Noel cake...
And now for my miniature followers here is Christmas in the dolls house. Enjoy!
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
