Dairy Farmer Santa Table for One

Today's table uses some of my favorite dishes (yeah, I'm a little weird. Pat's daughter likes them, too) and the other "Farmer" Santa that we own:

Over view of the table

Our inspiration Santa - complete with spotted cow (I hesitate to call it a Guernsey) and milk bucket

Isn't this flatware great??? OK, maybe not great, but unusual?

We featured John Deere last time, so it seemed only fair to use an International this time.....

These buckets hold salt and pepper

One last look
Where it came from:
Black Faux "Leather" Placemat - Pier 1
Red Charger and Bowl - by Waechtersbach from
Flatware - "Spotted Cow" from eBay
Dishware and Glasses - "Spotted Cow" by Tienshan from Replacements, eBay and Cancer's Discovery Shop
Spotted and Red Napkins - Handmade by Pat
Red Napkin Ring - PVC pipe cut and spray painted with Fusion Spray Paint
Santa and Cow Ornaments - Pierson's (our local Building store and Christmas enthusiast)
Tree, Garland, Hay bale, and Tiny Buckets - Michael's
Tractor - from Pat's collection of table decorations

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


  1. I love this table! I suspect it is because the decor could almost pass for Dalmatian spots. I even have very similar flatware, but the spots are smaller so I consider it Dalmatian-spotted! As for the cow, it is definitely a Holstein -- when I was a child, we got our milk from a local dairy which had Holsteins (they are black and white). I see the straw made it back onto the table, but if Santa is also a farmer then straw is inevitable! I am so enjoying your Santascapes -- I was a little behind in viewing them (life does tend to get a little complicated sometimes!), but I am caught up now and can't wait to see the next one!

  2. This makes me smile! It is Moo-tiful!!
