Here's my first tablescape for 2013. Can you tell I'm dreaming of something white to accompany this cold weather? Sure doesn't happen often in hot and humid Louisiana but one can dream, right????
I used my aunt's Friendly Village Johnson Brothers china that I bought from her estate. With the white accents, it takes on a totally different look than it did at Thanksgiving with the accents of green and gold, doesn't it? After I took the first pic, I shopped the Christmas tree and added some white tassels. Wish they'd photographed as well as they look on the table.....
Here's an up close look......
That GORGEOUS mercury glass piece in the center was a Pottery Barn gift from my BFF and I just can't bear to put it away just yet! Scattered in the midst of that beautiful design are small deer figures so I used two deer Christmas tree ornaments to continue the theme. I love the way it turned out!
One deer is running.....
And the other is leaping.....
My sweet daughter and boyfriend who's here visiting from South Carolina are driving out to cook dinner for me and my honey tonight. It most DEFINITELY won't be deer. They're cooking shrimp and grits, a South Carolina specialty!
So it's off to the grocery I go.......
Hope you're New Year is off to a great start!
