May Your Days Be Merry

Hello Everyone!
May your days be merry and bright...love it!
Here is our merry and bright holiday table.
Join me for a tour!
I set the table with my *Peace On Earth* green dishes.
They are from Cracker Barrel.
The jewel napkin rings are fom Kirklands.
Look at the gorgeous new holiday arrangement I won!
Thank you very much Kara. Check out her stunning blog.
I added gold scroll frames to the china cabinet.
I am going a bit frame crazy lately. LOL!

All photos enlarge when clicked for details.
I added a red runner and plaid napkins from Marshalls.
A view of the formal dining room.
The floral features flocking. It's so pretty and festive.
I added gold candlesticks and red candles to each side.
The red poinsettia goblets are from Princess House.
The red jingle bell placemats are from Pier 1.
The white bird shackers are from Pier 1.

Thank you for visiting today and for the last two years. Wow!
I can't believe it has been that long since I started my blog.
On that note it is time for a much needed holiday break.
I'll see you in two weeks or so. Don't forget me...:)

*Happy Holidays To All My Blog Friends!*

Oh my gosh! It's so precious. I'm hoping someday to set a table that looks half that cute. (with a 3 1/2 yr old and a 20 mo old, it just isn't working right now!)

Melissa, I love your dining room tablescape! My dining room is painted in very similar to yours except I have the colors reversed on the wall.
I adore the dishes from Cracker Barrel! Did you get them this year? I've been there a few times and I didn't see anything as stunning as those you have setting on your table! Thank you for welcoming me into your dining room tonight :D

Melody Parris said...

This setting you created is absolutly georgious. I love the colours you choose because it shows the warm side of winter's colour scheme. The gold frame in the cabinet realls adds sparkle to the room. Merry Christmas!!!

Hi Melissa...

Well sweet friend, I just wanted to come over to wish ya'll a very Merry Christmas! I have a bit of catching up to do here at your place. Girlfriend, your Christmas table is gorgeous! Congratulations on winning that fabulous Christmas floral centerpiece from Kara...it's beautiful! And...I love your tall gold candleholders...sooo pretty! I couldn't help but notice your tablerunner...I just love paisley prints...what a beautiful piece! I love, love, LOVE your Christmas dishes from Cracker Barrel! This design is one of my favorites for Christmas! The nearest Cracker Barrel to us doesn't carry much dishware! Sure wished they had an online shop....I've checked...no such luck! Shoot!

Well sweet friend, your Christmas table is gorgeous...I sooo enjoyed it! Thank you for sharing it with us!

Love ya,
Chari

Hi Melissa! I'm searching for other serving pieces in this Cracker Barrel dish pattern. When you purchased yours, do you remember seeing anything other than dinner plates, salad plates, serving platter, s&p, coffee mugs, creamer and sugar? Do you remember if there were any bowls? I bought theses a couple years ago but found them late in the season so I'm not sure if there are other pieces floating around out there!

Your table is lovely!
Thanks!
