Christmas Tablescapes

Well it is chilly here in Florida tonight, going down to 20 degrees tonight, so while I am watching The Santa Claus Movies, I figured I would share my tables capes with you. And now that your wondering ,
yes I am watching Christmas movies , it's a tradition I started long ago and even though my kids are grown , I still watch them . ( enter laugh here HO HO HO).
Our tablecloth is done in the black diamond pattern , along with red velvet  chargers, trimmed with white fur. Snow white Ralph Lauren plates , red glassware and napkins, and  silver flatware. To complete the holiday look a red and white elf hat ornament and candy cane lay on the plates. The centerpiece is made up of  white flocked picks, red and white poinsettia accented with jingle bells , a black and white bow, red sequined picks and glamour sticks, all set in a red planter.

Another look:

                                                            Closer of the plates:

Because we are not having family in this year , the formal table is set with elf frolicking with snow balls. Looks like they trying to build a snowman...

I will be back with my out door display until then :

Hello all! Merry Christmas!

Me and UPS are gonna have to get married , in order for me to save on shipping ! Any who... this year Christmas theme is a bit interesting. I went totally non-traditional!!

Kind of speaks for itself , huh??  Red and white candy canes. elf's, black and white diamond pattern, silver accents, red garland put on black and white garland for the base of mantle. Large ornaments as accent pieces over the mantle. The white Christmas tree, is put inside an urn. Black glamour rope and red beaded garland, elf's, candy canes, black and white diamond boxes and ornaments, silver, black and red ornaments, a large bow and candy cane picks for the tree topper. The elf on the table is helping load the sleigh...matching presents in front of fireplace to co ordinate the total look. So lets take a closer look:
