Tablescape Thursday

I thought I would try something a little on the fun side this week.

I always like to have a picture of my starting place.  I have had this tablecloth for a few years and don't quite remember where I got it from.

The santa and train set was given to us as a gift a few years ago and I had it sitting on a back shelf.
This was the year to actually pull it out and use it.

I thought it was kind of cute.

These are views of either side of the train.

The snowman is part of my salt and pepper set and I added some tealights and a few wooden ornaments. 

The little candle tress were in a box of goodies I picked up at a garage sale.

Finally comes the dishes - simple white and green with a dash of gold.

The napkin rings were also in that box of goodies from the garage sale.

Each place setting had their own wooden ornament (I had a basket of them kicking around) and the little pinecones I picked up at Pier 1 Imports.

The table is set and ready to go!

Unfortunately my batteries died before I could get pictures of the food
but the tablescape and the food was enjoyed by all :)

I hope you enjoyed my tablescape as well.  I'm participating in Tablescape Thursdays at Between Naps on the Porch.  Go check it out to see some amazing and beautiful tablescapes.


  1. I love your tablecloth and your little train is so cute. I am just starting to get Christmas stuff out. It takes me a long time at 79 I have to do it gradually.

  2. Your tablescape is fabulous! It definately has an element of 'fun' to it and I love that tablecloth!

  3. Cute table! I love your pretty tablecloth-enjoy:@)

  4. Alana...this is truly a fun table!

    The train is just perfect for carrying presents to everyone...and the napkin rings are just lovely.

    Thank you for sharing...


  5. That is really pretty!

    Thanks for sharing with us.


  6. That is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing. I just know that my son would absolutely love that train - I should look into finding something similar to it.

  7. I like how you added the train giving your table a playful touch. I'm sure the little ones thought it was a lot more fun, too than a more formal setting. The napkin rings were cute, too.


  8. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on my Santa truck.

    All your decorations are cute, especialy the snowman and Santa. I like putting decorations on each table setting too. One year I went crazy and painted about 20 decorations and put them at each table setting at a party. Then everyone got to take their ornament home. That was a big hit, especially with the men because I painted trucks for most of them. A lot of work, so I've never done it again. I should go your route and just use things I have, but that was a fun year.

  9. Hi alana, What a fun table setting! I really like the plate combination. The colours are wonderful together :-)


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
