Baby It's Cold Outside Tablescape

I have done the small dining room in a theme of  "Baby It's Cold Outside". Part 1 is the buffet and this one is the tablescape.   I have draped a coat on each of the chairs in case my guests get cold....Brrr!

Each place setting is different. 

I used my Mary Englebreit Comfort and Joy tea set....

An assortment of white ironstone...

Embroidered napkins...

And each guest will get a healthy slice of "cheesecake " and a big piece of ribbon candy! 

For the centerpiece, I used a Christmas tree mug holder.....

Beads and tea cups....

and of course, Santa's.

This small dining room is part of our family room.  That recliner is where I sit 90% of the time when I do my posts for the blog.  

I did a separate post on the buffet in the background...check it out on my blog!

  23. Hi Penny,
    you combined so many eyecandies on the table. Its hard to spot everything. What a fun is this healthy and caloriefree cheese cake. And the tea cup holder is a really great idea. All looks very festive in the soft ice colors. Thank you for sharing this glamour tea setting. Have a wonderful Advent time.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  29. I think one of your santas is a Jacqueline Kent, she is a good friend of a friend of mine. She sells her items in our little neighbouring town and has been picked up by big companies across the country. About four years ago, she went to China or Japan and started to have her items produced there. Surprised to see her on another site, I have the same one at my fireplace. I check your post all the time, so lovely...

  30. Totally gorgeous Penny. Thank you for linking up at Shabbilicious Friday.

  31. What a beautiful Christmas tea setting. Love your teacup tree! Have a wonderful day!

  32. Very beautiful and creative! I like the idea of the cup tree...Christine


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
