Tablescape Tuesday


I'm excited to take part in another Tablescape Tuesday, hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. This week I am featuring a whimsical setting for a family holiday lunch.

I love these colors together...



My brother J.D. will not appreciate these frou-frou goblets...


Radko tree with a few Radko ornaments...

We always have a Red Velvet cake for Christmas...it's so Southern and a family tradition!

Look at this darling Christmas tree frame on my sideboard. I won this in a blog giveaway hosted by Kristen, at Kristen's Creations Online. There are rhinestones on all four corners and tiny bells throughout the bow...too cute! You simply must visit her beautiful blog--she has decorated loads of homes for Christmas...take a look! Thank you so much Kristen for the frame...it's so precious!


Thank you for stopping by today. Don't forget to visit Susan and check out the Tablescape Tour.

What a happy and beautiful tablescape! That centerpiece is wonderful. I tried to click to enlarge, but couldn't. Is it something you made, or did you purchase it? And I love that pretty little tree on your sideboard. Have a wonderful Christmas. laurie

Your table is so pretty! I love the colors, the napkin trees are so cute! Love the red velvet cake, does it have Italian creme icing? Goblets are so cute.

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Love this wonderfully whimsical tablescape! The goblets are adorable! Are they personalized for each guest? The cake looks totally yummy...we'll be having coconut cake and ambrosia on Christmas day. I've never tried to make a Red Velvet cake. Thanks Janice for another great TT posting! Susan

Teresa Jane said...

Miss Janice,
Love it, mean it. I especially like the JD goblet since hubby's name is same as your brother...hee hee. Mr. J.D. would get a kick out of drinking out of a goblet with his name on it since he'd just soon drink out of a vase (remember that?) Anyway, you did good girlfriend.
Love,
Teresa Jane, your BFF

Glenda said...

Your centerpiece puts me in mind of a Maypole. We can dream, right? Loved your napkin treatment and also the wreath in front of the mirror.
Hope you have settled in after your move, and have a very Happy and productive New Year.
