Trees and Topiaries Tablescape


Here is a quick Christmas-at-the-Counter tablescape....
 
Why the counter, you ask?...Well I only have four of these Christmas plates so I couldn't do a full table - plus I am supposed to be Christmas shopping today.  
Instead, I am playing around on the computer!
 
I know it is not proper etiquette to put the forks on top of the napkin but there is not much space on the counter and I didn't want to cover up the Christmas tree!



Oops, it looks like the one place mat is falling off...Don't you love it when your realize these things after you import the pictures!



See the other two plates on the wall to the right? 
Sure makes it look like I have an abundance of these plates. 
 (Good thing you can't see the other empty plate rack in this shot!)


I am linking up to A Stroll Thru Life Table Top Tuesday!
And I am linking to Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch.

Thanks to you both for hosting and Merry Christmas everyone!

  3. I've never seen a topiary I didn't like! Great tablescape.

    I sent you an email (a reply)asking for permission to feature your table but it sounds like you didn't get it. Using a scarf as a runner was genius and I'm looking all over town for 3 in the right pink!
