Christmas Table with Santa Centerpiece

This year, I set my Christmas table with a white Santa centerpiece…

Since I always find good deals after the holidays, I picked him on sale at Michael’s last year.  Why pay full price if you don’t have to?

First I had him up on top of the china cabinet, but I brought him down when I set the table.

For my table this year, I stayed with mostly neutrals and added a little color with the napkins.

I borrowed the little evergreens from my recently decorated baker’s rack.

 Candlelight adds such a warm glow and makes the room feel extra cozy.

I think this is the only time of year I still enjoy having a red dining room.  I keep saying I am going to paint the room but I haven’t committed to a color.

Ho Ho Ho.

All set for Christmas!


Is your table set for the holidays yet?

  12. I'm with you – I only like that my dining room is red this time of year. I so want to lighten it up. Your table is gorgeous. I am going to be featuring it tomorrow night at my Winter Blues Wednesday party (Fall into Fall). The party will be opening Wednesday at 12:01am instead of Tuesday night at 8pm EST because I am participating in the blogger day of silence tomorrow. Please stop by and pick up an I've Been Featured button. Thanks.
