Happy First Day of Winter my bloggie friends! Today I am sharing my dining room Christmas tablescape which is lots different than in years past. When I started pulling out my Christmas goodies this year, I remembered some pale pink vintage ornaments I had and decided to set up a pale pink, gold, and silver theme rather than my usual burgandy and gold. I found some gold chargers at a yard sale this summer which made a nice underlayer to my mix and match Limoges dinner plates that have pink flowers on a white background with gold accents.
My little French cherub candleholders are regulars at my table and are perfect for this tablescape since they aren't terribly tall, avoiding having to peek around them to see your table mates.
The pretty vintage balls that were my inspiration ended up in a round Limoges casserole dish and then were set on a vintage Italian florentine tray.
I used pretty pink roses and mixed them with some Christmas greenery in what are usually mercury glass votive holders I got from Pottery Barn a few years ago.
I typically always do this embellishment to my chandelier. I drape vintage mercury glass garlands and then hang vintage ornaments from them. Sometimes I have ribbon bows to attach them, but this year, I went simple and just used ornament hangers.
My mom and dad had a few pieces of gold Pickard china which I inherited and incorporated...a cream and sugar, salt and pepper, and a little dish. I also used my mom and dad's silverware, King Edward by Gorham in addition to some antique silver plate napkin rings.

I love to tie tulle on the back of my chairs. This time I used a pale pink tulle and alternated between sparkly silver tulle and sparkly gold tulle. Lastly, I added a little ornament on each one that I got at Hobby Lobby when they were half price.
A fun little vignette on my dining room sideboard featuring a couple of my great aunt's hand painted plates flanking a pretty maiden plate that I got at an antique show a number of years ago. My little snow angel makes appearances here and there during the Christmas season.
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. I'll be working right up until Christmas Eve, but then I have a 3 day weekend with my family and friends. Enjoy your time with your dear ones as well. My 16 year old got his driver's license yesterday. YIKES! Time goes by so fast, so enjoy them while you can.
