Gingerbread Santa Table for One

After selecting the Santa we wanted to use today, it was only a matter of minutes to come up with the place setting:
Over view of the table

Our inspiration Santa

The place setting

We selected the flatware because it was "chubby" - much like the Gingerbread boys. The pattern is called "Pure" by Gourmet Settings

First layer of the place setting is this cute Gingerbread boy from Pier 1 last year (but I saw them there again this year)

The salad plate is olive green (the color is picked up from Santa's pants)

Next layer is a Chocolate Fiestaware Luncheon plate

The dinner plate is by "Food Network" from Kohl's - it's plain and goes with everything

Love this bright, shiny red charger from Pier 1

The napkin ring is a Gingerbread boy ornament attached to a plain brown napkin ring made from PVC pipe and spray painted with Fusion (plastic adhesive) paint

Of course, Santa should have cookies.....
