Red/Green Christmas Tablescape

Yes, I know, Thanksgiving isn't even here and we are doing a Christmas table.....but everyone in my very close-knit family loves Christmas time. I guess we never grew up (all of us "kids" are in our 60's and the real kids are in their late 30's and 40's). I would say that it's too late now. So - here goes the first of probably many Christmas tables.
Over view of the table - Pat used Santa as the inspiration for the table

The place setting

We got the flatware at Pier 1 a while ago but it is readily available

The green martini/sherbet and trumpet-style champagne are both by Judal from my favorite place - (we live in earthquake country so Replacements is a good friend to have.....)

The liner is white "Monax" American Sweetheart Depression glass

Dishware is from Pier 1 this season

The inspiration Santa
