Tablescapes, Angels in the Snow

I try to have a special meal with Santa around this time every December, you know, to help him make his list and check it twice…

I created a sparkling table by the tree, to set the stage and put him in a Jolly mood…

We only dream of a white Christmas in Alabama, but it has been Frosty lately~

Silver presents decorate the place settings, just to make sure he understands what I want to talk about, [not football]

Do you notice the gorgeous aqua pitcher front and center?

He is such a smart guy, he knows the way to a woman’s heart…

Naturally I couldn’t wait to use these fabulous things and remembered I had 2 aqua dinner plates

I gathered white and silver things for sparkle, glitz and bling

the silver serving spoon was my grandmother’s

I used silver picks [like the ones I used for angel wings] and made a cone out of the napkin to mimic an angel

This white ceramic angel was given to me by a very special friend and she stays out year round, seeing over things~

I think Santa will be saying Ho Ho Ho in no time at all…

    It is just stunning! I love the frosty blue and whites and those are such fun angels! I got my grandmother’s berry spoon too! They are so ornate and beautiful. Your sprinkling of baubles is delightful too. I wish I lived where it was warm and sunny! So sick of the cold and snow and more on its way! The first snowfall is pretty and then I am done!

    Silver and blue the perfect combination for this Santa table! Your son is wonderful to give a beautiful pitcher with this blue hue. I love how you used the tray to create the centerpiece. The silver wrapped packages are so wonderful to add to each place setting! Have a very Merry Christmas!

    This is just a fabulous table! I love everything about it and the fact that is keeping the tree company! Wish I was sitting right there to see it in Leon, but it looks great from this vantage point, too.

    Dropping by from Kathleen’s to wish you a Merry Christmas!

    So, did it work, inspiring the list that is? The table is something, icy in a way I’m betting it’s not in Alabama. The turquoise and silver is most appealing.
