Breakfast with Santa Tablescape

When Pat found Breakfast Santa, she knew immediately how to decorate the tree. She made the garland from strips of newspaper cut into 1" sections and lettered beads. She bought a couple yards of coffee cup fabric for the tree skirt (she had a much larger tree) but we decided to use it for the tablecloth. Here's the tablescape:
Over view of the table

Our inspiration Santa (naturally dressed in bathrobe and reindeer slippers)

The place setting

Ceramic handled flatware is "Iron Brown" from Noritake

The place setting consists of a Brown Fiesta Salad plate, followed by a Scarlett Fiesta Luncheon plate, and then a Brown Fiesta Dinner Plate

Scarlett Fiesta Bread/Butter plate holds a cereal bowl

This was before we discovered Keurig........

The napkin fold consists of a brown checked napkin surrounding an ivory colored eyelet napkin held by this cute spoon/fork napkin ring

Pat says the glasses are perfect for a Santa table - short and chubby

Of course, you have to have the morning paper

One last look
Where it came from:
Tablecloth - JoAnn Fabrics
Dinnerware - Fiesta by Homer Laughlin from Macy's, Kohl's and Replacements
Flatware - "Iron Brown" by Noritake (more than 40 years old....)
Glassware - "Clarion" by Lenox (also very old)
Napkins - Pier 1
Napkin Ring - Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Breakfast Santa - from Kohl's several years ago
Tree and ornaments - Michael's

We will be joining Cuisine Kathleen's "Let's Dish" this Wednesday:  http://www.cuisinekathleen.com/


  1. This is so much fun! Love the Santa in the bathrobe and drinking coffee. The tablescape is perfect with this Santa. Fun Fun Fun!

  2. I love the pairing of red with brown, and that tablecloth is so cute! I would be happy at this place setting even though I am a tea rather than coffee drinker. Just open that newspaper to the crossword puzzle and my breakfast would be perfect. And I'll bet Santa would be a great help with that crossword, world traveler that he is!

  3. What a fun Santa! He is adorable in his reindeer slippers and comfy robe. I'm a coffee drinker, so the brown and white theme appeals to me. Great job on this clever tabletop!

  4. This is adorable and I love Santa in his bathrobe. Wish I had that tablecloth too!

  5. TOOOOOO Cute! Love the Santa!

  6. So sweet...perfect table for the Santa

  7. I just love that Santa! What a great idea for a table, well done, sisters!
