Christmas Tablescape!

Here it is! No fancy flowers this year....in fact this will be the first year in probably well over 20 years I have not purchased fresh flowers. I normally look for Thomas Kinkaide's newest piece. I decided this year--no flowers...BUT get the plate chargers, a pretty silver deer and tree and then just light some candles and thats it!
Since for me the Reason for the Season is Jesus's Birth I wanted this little Nativity Piece to be the focus. I placed the deer and tree off to the side and will have candles around it. I mixed the colors of the plate chargers, red and silver. I found this snowflake sparkly tablecloth at Kohl's marked to a huge discount and decided it was way to pretty to pass up. I like it--I dont think I will miss the fresh flowers. I just decided that spending nearly 60 dollars was just something i no longer wanted to do. I dont have the silverware in place because silly me forgot to get pretty napkins. I'll be on the hunt in the morning for something that matches this. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas Eve with their loved ones. Good companionship--good food and peace and joy! Merry Christmas!
