Candy Cane Santa Table

Each year, starting on December 1st, Pat and I do a "25 Days of Santa Table Extravaganza" where we set a different table everyday using a different Santa from our collection as the centerpiece. (It started out as a way to "make us" use dishes from our stash that we never got out, but now it's grown into a challenge to use the dishes in unique and different ways. It also gives us a chance to get together to do something we really enjoy doing - creating tablescapes.)

Today's table is done in simple red and white. The inspiration Santa is one of the oldest in my collection.
The inspiration Santa

Where it came from:
White Charger - from the Maryland China Company (mail order)

Dinner Plate - "Fun Factory" Red by Waechtersbach from Replacements
Salad Plate - "Basic White" by Food Network from Kohl's several years ago
Bowl - "Peppermint Santa" by Certified International from a local Department store 10 years ago
Water Goblet - from the Ferndale Emporium (a local gift and kitchen boutique) several years ago
Napkins - Handmade by Pat
Napkin Ring - from Pier 1 this season

  1. I am so delighted to see the Santas are back again this year! The combination or red and white is always appropriate for Christmas, as is a peppermint theme. I look forward to this series every year - the holidays wouldn't be quite the same without it. Thank you, Pat and Katie!

  2. I look forward to this each year! So much fun! Love the Santa and the red and white! Thank you both!
