~ Tablescape Tuesday - Santa Style ~

Welcome to the sixteenth week of Tablescape Tuesday hosted by Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch. Please stop by her post, she has the most beautiful Tablescapes that I have ever seen.

I was wondering what I would use for my tablescape, and I thought of using something that I really love and I thought why not these Santa's, I love them. I found them some years ago while doing a few after Christmas sales. They look sort of Vintage to me, I think I found them at Marshall's.

I used my cake plate as a stand, and placed them upon it. Then used my cloche to cover them and added a little greenery at the base.

Now on with my trusty paper and plastic. I was in Marshall's Saturday night and found the printed plates and napkins, I thought they were beautiful.

I looked around the house for other things to use, and chose the sleighs, and two old brass deer that I had. I used red place mats that I found the other day at the Dollar Tree. They only had four and I went to two other stores looking for two more but I had no luck. Put it all together and I think it turned out pretty good.


Very festive in color

The sleighs I found at Big Lots years ago. I bet you all are saying, " All that woman talks about is Big Lots". Ladies I have found a lot of goodies there (IN THE PAST). There's still a lot more around my house from there that I haven't shared yet.

I really hope you enjoyed my frugal little tablescape as much as I did putting it together, I've learn that you can just about use anything from around the house to set a beautiful table and what's best is, cheap! cheap! cheap! I got too tickled thinking about going around from place to place shopping for paper plates like I was shopping for fine China. LOL!!!! My next tablescape will be pictured in my Dining room along with a few Christmas decorations. Deb
