A Country Christmas Tablescape

Until this Christmas, I had no idea that I was going to be having a little obsession with vintage trucks. Specifically, red pickup trucks.  Me, the girl that loves to decorate with delicate flowers and romantic fabrics.  Hard to believe but it is true!!!  And decorating with vintage cars is seems to be having a moment..  They are everywhere!!

So today, I am happy to share one of my most pinned and shared tablescapes.  It is my Country/Farm house themed Christmas table which showcases my latest find. You guess it!  A red pickup truck.  It was just too adorable to pass up.  I didn't know what use it would have in my decor when I first brought it home but it quickly became the inspiration for all of our Christmas decorating the last two holiday seasons. Such a fun piece to own with a great vintage vibe too.  

My whimsical table begins with a distressed wood charger in antique white, topped with simple white plates and Pier 1 Imports Glad Tidings Porcelain Salad plates.  I also placed a black and white check napkin underneath the salad plate to add another layer of texture and visual interest to the place setting.  I also think the check napkins and runner are a perfect match for the Country/Farmhouse theme of my table.  Classic green glassware and stainless steel flatware complete each tablesetting.

I then placed a few clear glass candle holders along the center of the table to add a bit of twinkle while fresh greens and a few carefully selected ornaments pay tribute to the holiday season.  And for the finale, my adorable red truck takes center stage right on the middle of it all.  The perfect finishing touch for this fun and happy table.  Can you just imagine the smiles that this cute table will bring?  I know I could not help smiling and feeling happy when I took the time to admire it all and I hope you will be too!!  








































I hope I have inspired to branch out this holiday season and experiment with something completely outside of your comfort zone.  Who knows, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Thank you for visiting sweet friends.  Wishing you all a wonderful and blessed Christmas.

Janet

  4. Very fun and happy, just as you stated, Janet. I have resisted those red trucks, but they're oh, so tempting! I know what you mean by stretching your comfort zone for the style of home you normally create. I do the same.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family! The two big days are upon us - enjoy!

  13. I'm chuckling over here, Janet. What's so funny is I private message one of your photos to my friend to Pin. She is not a decorator at all. Her field is SEO and Social Media Strategies along with Pro Photography.

    This Christmas I was helping her virtually shop and decorate her home with a rustic style that incorporated plaid. She put together a beautiful tablescape and I just guided her on setting up the centerpiece and gave her some quick skimping tips for creating a tablerunner using older linens.

    Anyway, I was on Pinterest and saw your buffalo check print with the black seasonal plates and sent it to her saying Pin this in your board because those plates will look nice with your Tartan print plaid chargers.

    I didn't even realize it was your tablescape. You truly have some of the best and prettiest dishes in all of blogland. I just love all of your Marchesa ones. Hopefully we will get a Home Goods or TJ Maxx up here so I can pick up a few pretty sets at a good price. I love dishes so much. It's wonderful having a variety of sets for each season and holidays. Then having everyday dishwares that can be used on a whim. It's so fun.

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

  35. Hi everyone, i'm little ashamed to tell such a story, on how i enlarge my penis by Dr, Ken. it really matters in your relationship or marriage. I got married to my wife about 1 month after we met on a photo studio, we lived happily for the first 3 months of our marriage until i and my wife started having quarrels at home because i couldn't satisfy her on bed with my little penis. Actually my penis was very small, it measured about 3.2 inches long on erection and i am 39 years old. My wife said it was forbidden by the women of this world. My wife started sleeping with other men outside. Sometimes i will return from work without finding my wife at home and whenever i call or ask her where she was, she will always snub at me and sometimes just tell me to go get a larger dick. All this continued for a long time and it hurt me so much that i was at the edge of breaking up on the marriage till when i read about a doctor called Dr ken online. I never thought i could smile and be in a happy marriage again if not for the help of Dr Ken. I got the doctors Website Emails: drkensolutiontemple@gmail.com mobile number +2348102574680

  45. am delighted by the incredible love Spell of Dr Azaka, which had lead to the reunity of me and my husband after he left me and our 2 kids for another woman. After 3 years of marriage, me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to Seattle to be with another woman. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband,  Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, I was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Azaka can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do,  he casted a love spell charm on him , and within 24 hours. my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back the next day with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day our Marriage was now stronger than how it used to be , All thanks to Dr Azaka. He is a real  powerful spell caster who is always ready and willing to help you, if you are here and you need your Ex back or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact this powerful spell caster now. Here’s his contact:  him at:  you can also call him or add him on WhatsApp +2349059389105 or email via azakaspelltemple@gmail.com
