mercury glass containers have been used over and over again throughout this year. The reindeer ornament was from an after Christmas sale a couple years ago.
The table itself was decided by things I already had. Dishes in teal and winter white, silver chargers, matching napkins and some glittery napkin rings all complemented the silver and turquoise decorations.
Glittery Christmas trees from last year were held standing by a white votive light. The silver ball at the top of the stem on the goblets picked up reflective sparkle as well.
Nothing elaborate on the center of the table allows for eye contact and lively conversation. I don't always follow that rule but I did this time.
I put it up before Thanksgiving so by the time December came, I was ready for another color.
This seemed to be just enough for this room.
A window vignette in white...
was a nod to Christmas for this corner of the kitchen.
And just a little addition to the year round display.
And that is it for 2011. May all your desires manifest in 2012.
