Hi Sweet Friends,
This is sort of a late Christmas table and I wasn't going
to share it but then I saw the pictures and thought......
why not!! With a few changes it could look like
a Valentines or any dinner table really.
I wanted you to see this shot because this is the
actual color of the tablecloth, for some strange
reason this tablecloth will just not photograph well,
as you will see in the other pictures.
These were actually paper goods that were
left over from my daughters Graduation
Party 2 yrs. ago, so thought I might as well
use them, so did for an improptu family dinner.
I love Amarillo's anyway, but these were the only
Plates I could find that would look nice with our
Christmas decorations as well. Since her Graduation
was about 4-5 days before Christmas.
They were sold at Target as Christmas Ware.
They probably would not have been my choice,
but I actually wound up loving them!!
Had to come up with a quick centerpc, so pulled thes
Amarillos out of an arrangement I have in the computer room,
and wrapped some ribbon around it, then happened to have
just upwrapped a gift from a friend so stuck this glittery
tissue paper with one of the decorative napkins under it
cause it looked better than on the green. then threw in
a few +mas bulbs and candles and was good to go!!
Unfortunately, the glitter paper doesn't show up all
that well in the picutres.
I love the napkins. I like that look of writing
in the background, and if you look closely
you can see the french word Joyeux.

A candle shot!!
From the end of the table
With a posterized affect!
Just goes to show you can have a pretty table
even if you don't have china, and it is nice
and easy clean up as well!
Which is really nice every now and then!
I thought it still looked elegant enough to use stemware.
This has a posterized affect as well.
From the other end of the table.
This has a lighting affect!
I think this could make a nice Valentines Days table
if you got rid of the Christmas balls, and the green
tablecloth. You could use red hearts instead,
and a red, white or creme tablecloth. No one
takes the time to read the writing on the napkin
anyway!! Accept Me as I am decorating!! lol
And you could use a Love sign instead of the
Joy sign! but the Joy sign could work too!
Well, those are my humble opinions!! lol
Hope you enjoyed your visit....
Thank for coming by...................
