Joyful Tablescapes

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   I gave you a little sneak peak of my Christmas table scape in my treasure hunt finds post, and now I want to share the whole thing.

I love setting up my table for Christmas. This is one of my favorite holidays, so I always like my table to be lovely. Now time to share some wonderful meals around this festive table. 

After I got married my mom asked me what pattern I wanted my Christmas dishes to be in, and I instantly responded "JUST LIKE YOURS!" I grew up waiting for Christmas to come so we could use the special Christmas dishes. These are the perfect plates, and I love bringing them out at this time of year.

 Do you remember this mouse cage? I finally got it cleaned up and made pretty. There was definitely mixed feelings on this little cage, but I think it turned out very cute. (please ignore my vacuum in the background of this picture)

 Love my vintage mason jars filled with old Christmas lights.

Tis the season for jolly and cheer! Oh how I love Christmas time!

Do you have something special that you remember always bringing out at Christmas time?

  1. Hello joyful! I'm thinking you need a table runner ... I found a cute one that I used in another blog for my Seasons Greeting picture. I also like your Merry Christmas blocks. I look forward to bringing out my collection of Christmas mooses and little vintage ceramics that I showcase on my other blog

  2. I can understand the mixed feelings on the mouse cage, lol, just don't tell anyone what it was used for. Love the blocks.

  3. The little blocks are so cute! I love your dishes and I also look forward to using mine each year...I have Winterberry. I always look forward to bringing out the stockings. Hugs, Linda

  4. Love the coloured lights inside the little cage (I've got a smaller version 'bug cage' that I could try out, and the colourful light bulbs in the vintage sealer - hey, I could try that one too !!!
    Thanks for some great ideas.

  5. love the cage and your lights in the mason jars--too cute!

  6. What a fun and happy Christmas table! Love all the different details. Thank you for joining Thrifty Tablescape and have a wonderful day!

  7. The blocks are great, I have a few that spell out NOEL and hold candles - love them. I also love your mason jars full of colorful bulbs. I don't have a mantel either, we just have to make the best of it, right? Have a very merry Christmas!

  8. Thank you for sharing your tablescape! It is just delightful! I have some Merry Christmas blocks but for the life of me for the past two years I have no idea where they ended up!:( Happy Holidays!
