A Caribbean Christmas Tablescape

Hello everyone!  Since I can't live in the Caribbean, I thought I would try to have a Caribbean Christmas at home!


So, I started with these first few shots...




Yes, that is one of my beach sarongs.  It really pulls in all the color.




Oops, where did that knife come from?





A Pottery Barn side table.



But we are not finished yet...

I took a few things off the table since I don't like to leave glasses etc out with two crazy boys running around my house.
And I thought - wait a minute...I think I like it better without the sarong...
(Oh, yes and that stray knife from the earlier pictures!)

Yes, much better...
Except the candle is too small.  I had another one in there but it wouldn't light so I tried to dig out the wick (hence the stray knife).  That didn't work so I just have to live with this smaller candle...

And because I am insane, I then dragged out the crystal and silverware and re-lit the candles...

Ahhh, much better...and look no stray knife!

So here are some revised shots.





What do you think?  Sarong?  No sarong?  Knife?....

Thanks for visiting!

  3. What a great twist on the Holidays - Caribbean Style! I love the sarong - it really compliments the table. Thanks for your nice comments, I recently picked up the Johnson Bros. holiday plates. They are quickly becoming one of my favorites too! ~Susie
