pre Christmas brunch

the place setting in Red and white The gold poinsettia will have a name tag.
Christmas is just a few days away and have not even done any shopping. I made a few  stocking stuffers. I will be at my son's for Christmas who lives just around the block. Hoping the weather is good as the children will be coming from NYC and NC.
The candle holder was a ugly gold color . I painted it white. I wound some gold garland and nested red balls. On the left is a candle lamp I used battery candle and wrapped it with plaid ribbon and filled it snow balls, fake of course and a pine deco.     On the right I used a plastic coffee jar with ribbon bands filled it with red and white mints. Glued a nest with cardinal on top.
A closer look at candle holder. I also hung small glass hangers from the curved part. The tablecloth is a shiny white with silver pattern.
I wanted to stick with red and green. Place mats in green and napkins red damask. the silverware is a  off white. The large white plate I use a lot. I have 4 glasses from the twelve days of Christmas and gold stemmed wine glasses.

On the chair I hung an elaborate Santa head. He wears a very fancy hat and tassel.
This a very fancy cone with small red and white roses.
I made the red circles to set off all the white. The candle is wrapped in white and silver brocade
A closer look at lamp In closer looks you will see I used a lot of plaid.
On the serving cabinet I used my green wine server and green stemmed glasses
I also put the sweets in a raised dish with cover.
cute salt and peppers.
This is one of a set of the twelve days of Christmas.
Scones with frosting on another Christmas dish.

You have so many wonderful Christmas dishes! There's nothing wrong with painting the candleholders. I've done that myself to give some a face lift. Love the Santa hanging on the chair. And the gold poinsettias are a nice touch as well.
Merry Christmas!

This inspires me to get out my Christmas plates ! I have pretty holiday plates and serving dishes may as well use them while I have the chance.

Thanks for sharing your home with us !
Merry Christmas :)

Hi, Vernice! Again...don't know how in the world I missed this last week! I must really be slipping!!! I think I was just overwhelmed with "life" around here! :-) EXCELLENT JOB! You really pulled out all the stops for this table! I LOVE the fancy Santa head hanging on the chair! That is really pretty! The cone is gorgeous, too! Great idea to spray paint the gold candle holder white! I never think of spray painting stuff. I just need to do more of that!!! Your scones look pretty tasty. My sister LOVES scones. I think she must eat one or two every day with her coffee! I'm too lazy to make them and too cheap to buy them! :-) You did a wonderful job here, Vernice, and I hope Christmas with your family was a happy one. Happy New Year to you!!!!!!!!

Thank you for leaving such a sweet comment on my blog! I love what you did here, especially recycling an old "ugly" piece into such a statement piece now! It's always fun to bring new life into an old piece! Happy Tablescaping!

Thanks so much for your visit!
I can definitely understand your feeling about your leak. I hate water leaks of any kind, don't you?
Have a great week!
