Prairie Cowboy SantaTable for One

Santa "gets around" in my he's off to the lonely, dry prairie. Here is what we came up with:
Over view of the table

Our Christmas version of the "high plains" Drifter......(granted, he's not quite Clint Eastwood)

The place setting

Flatware is the highly recognizable "Treble Clef"

"Cowboy Reflections" by Montana Lifestyles - there are four different cowboy centers in this pattern

Another pattern (this one looks like Rowdy I aging myself? Yes, and another Clint Eastwood reference. Sorry)

We used both a teal color and brown color to carry the theme through

The pattern is called "Ultra Marine" by the Jeannette Glass Company and was made from 1937-38

Candle Holders are actually Fiestaware

We added the boot to the "wreath" just for fun

Oh dear....this may be disturbing to some vegetarians

  1. Clever! Love the dishes and the colors!

  2. I really like this twist on Christmas themes. I also remember Rowdy! I think that anyone who loves horses would welcome this interesting holiday setting.
