Squealing Tablescape Tuesday!

I am not sure if you all got it from my precious posts, but just to let you know.... I LOVE CHRISTmas! Susan is hosting today Tablescape Tuesday, which is my favorite day! and I want to show you why I am taking Advil every 4 hours! By the way, if you haven't seen my previous Christmas post, please take a peek. I have started to decorate around our home and I NEED to share it. I always laugh(not a funny ha ha, but a comical sad laugh) at all the work we do to decorate and then no one comes over to see it....Well, bloggy world. You are invited! Today, it is Tablescape....

I saw the hanging crystal ornaments in the Romantic home...I knew I had to do it! It is soooo pretty in person.

I am trying to be calm.

So under that beautiful cluster of ornaments is my Tablescape

I know....I wish you were here to have lunch with me. But, not today ok??? let's let the pain subside for a bit.....

The dishes, purchased at Kirkland last year after Christmas for $2.00 for the set of 4 and Cake plate and Cake server. I didn't even know I wanted it. But now I do! Red goblets were from Target after Christmas 3 years ago! Did you notice the bell napkin rings. Pier One, 3 Christmases ago....and I count them when I have company. Many a guest has put them in pockets...no, I am not kidding. Maybe they think it is the little favor, but NOOOOO.

I used my gold chargers on a green tablecloth. The main dish is black. Yep, black. The writing on the dessert plate is in plate, so hey, why not?

The centerpiece has one of those new battery candles on a timer. What a deal!

I put the cake plate on a stand between my red hurricanes.

Well, I am off to see other beautiful tables. Then, I think I will take a nap!

I can understand why you couldn't let the ornaments get by you. They are wonderful and will bring you many years of enjoyment.
Your stemware looks to be an exact match to your hurricanes.
Beautifully done.
