Grilling Santa Table for One

Yes, I know, it's Winter and not really grilling weather, but when you have a Santa ready to grill, you have to use him. This is what we came up with:
Over view of the table

Our inspiration Santa

The place setting

First layer of the place setting is a small chili bowl

Next come ants.....ant plate that is

A simple white rimmed dinner plate sits on a black charger

Yes, I did iron this placemat - believe it or not - but it has seen better days.....

The napkin fold consists of an ant napkin wrapped in a denim napkin held by a simple red napkin ring

Of course, we had to use our Hamburger Salt and Pepper shakers

I've said it before, but I love the detail on these Santas
