Jim Shore Santa Table for One

When Pat's daughter was here last week, I pulled out one of my Santas (just one of the "things" that I collect) and challenged both Pat and Jennifer to set a table using it. The Santa is from Jim Shore ("Delivering Joy") and is typical of his style. Since we used a table last week designed by Jennifer, it was Pat's turn. Here is what she came up with:
Over view of the table - Pat "wrapped" the place setting

Flatware is inexpensive Amethyst "Ditto" from Ikea

The "present" - Pat took the place setting and wrapped it like a gift.

Every time I saw one of these chargers, I picked it up - I don't know the name or manufacturer, but the first one I bought was from Ross Dress For Less. I found this one at a thrift shop. And I found the rest on eBay.

Glassware is from Pier 1 last year

This figurine is called "Delivering Joy"

Yes, Pat found matching tiny ornaments.....

  1. That is a drop dead gorgeous table! I am going to go hunt for those chargers right now on ebay....Truly a stunning table Pat & Katie!!

  2. The chargers, the ribbon wrapping the plates, the inexpensive IKEA flatware that looks like a hundred bucks, all of it, just so pretty and inspired! Well done Pat!

  3. All I can say is that this table setting "Delivers Joy"! Spectacular: colors, wrapped place setting, centerpiece-----everything!! Bravo, Ladies!!!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  4. What a wonderful way to showcase the Santa! Love it all, especially the stemware and the way your wrapped the plates.
