Biker Santa Tablescape

Biker Santa is one of our favorite Santas in our collection. Pat has used it several times as a theme to her Christmas tables, and it is always a fight to see who gets to sit at that table. Here's our version for a Table for One:
Over view of the table

The place setting

The simple, shiny flatware is "Everyday" by Reed and Barton

The large soup bowl is by Waechtersbach - most of the time you see  much smaller version

The stack....

Black, glossy drinkware is perfect for Biker Santa

Pat says this napkin ring reminds her of Santa's chains

Our inspiration - Pat added the chains to make it seem Santa is decorating the tree

The tree - wrapped in chains and decorated with red balls and motorcycles. The tree skirt matches the napkin.

What a handsome dude! Here's a close up of Santa holding his helmet and a small motorcycle

Santa's "ride"

Black salt and pepper shakers are Depressionware

We will be joining Cuisine Kathleen's "Let's Dish" this Wednesday:


  1. This is so cute and so clever! I just featured your blog on my Facebook page! I think everyone should enjoy your Santa tables!

  2. As an admitted Santa fanatic I am loving this series! Visiting via Linda @ A La Carte's FB page :-)

  3. Oh my, just when you think you've seen it all ... I've encountered Santas of all shapes and sizes over the years, but this is the first time I've ever beheld a Biker Santa! I love the bandanas as tablecloth, napkin, and tree skirt, and that tree is great, especially with Biker Santa draping chains as garland on it -- pure genius! All three Santa tablescapes so far have been marvelous -- I can't wait to see what the two of you create next!
