The tree is trimmed, and the table is decked in a wonderful plaid taffeta tablecloth, an eBay find.
Anchoring the setting is the Anna Weatherly Blue charger plate.
Nana's antique damask napkin is held in one of my mama's Christmas basket napkin rings. The gold tone flatware was a great get at a Dallas estate sale. The funky little piece placed to keep the dinner plate from shifting around on the charger plate?...While at physical therapy for my knee, I noticed my therapist visiting with an older woman who appeared to be down-trodden. When I inquired, my therapist told me that she was homeless and lived in a shelter. She crocheted potholders to try and earn her own way as much as possible. I was overwhelmed by her determination to make her own way. I ended up ordering potholders for each of my friends and as stocking stuffers for my family. Today they were put to good use on my table and then went home with my guests.
The dinner plate is Royal Worcester Regency...
...Nana's plate will return for dessert.
Beverages were served in the Waterford Simply Red and the AJKA Xenia goblets.
You saw the AJKA Green pedestal bowl used in my post, Renaissance
My guests' Christmas gifts were gathered around the centerpiece.
This made me happy.
