My Red and Green Country Table

Mama had fun at Pottery Barn yesterday!!!

While I was out Christmas shopping on Wednesday, I found myself...surprise surprise...perusing through all of the gorgeous things in Pottery Barn. Honestly, if I had a job working in that store I'd never bring home a paycheck! So I ended up purchasing a lovely country French table runner and these darling napkins. Then today I made the trip over to one of my favorite little stores known as the Lamington General Store in Bedminster N.J., and bought the prettiest wicker napkin rings. So here is my red and green country Christmas table setting...

I love this look...the table covering is the backside of a beautiful winter quilt my cousin Carol had made a few years back. The color and pattern are a real compliment to the fantastic table runner from Pottery Barn. The white plates are from the Christmas Tree Shoppe at 3 for $5, and the green salad plates were 2 for $5. I had these candle globes so after placing the pillar candle inside each one, I sprinkled Epsom salt into the globes and on the candles themselves to give the appearace of snow. I also decided to put 2 napkins in the wicker rings to add more color and contrast.

All ready, at least the dining room is, for the Christmas festivities to begin!
