Silver and Black Santa Tablescape

We thought it would be fun to decorate December's tablescapes with some of our Santa collection. Needless to say, we have dozens of different ones - some fancy, some whimsical, some vintage. Not only does it give us the opportunity to display our Santas, but they should give us some great ideas for tablescaping.
