Vintage Santa Inspired Table Setting

Welcome friends to a vintage Santa inspired table setting.  The inspiration for this holiday tablescape is the vintage Santas I found last week.  Also, we have a spectacular yet uncommon snowfall for Atlanta.  You can see it in the background of some of my photos.  It is beautiful but I am ready for it to melt.  I am not ready for life in a snowy land.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have already seen these two guys.  I’ve had this cross stitch Christmas table-cloth for a while.  You can read about it here.  I had it in my booth last Christmas but it didn’t sell.  It is a bit small and barely covered my kitchen table, so I threw it on the table diagonally.

These adorable vintage Santas are the inspiration for my tablescape.

In place of a centerpiece I placed three paperwhite bulbs in water down the center of the table along with the two vintage Santas.

I found these paperwhites in the fresh produce section at Wal-Mart.

They started blooming along with the snowfall this past weekend.

The white square chargers (Wal-Mart) support funky out of round red plates (Home Goods).  I love these crazy red plates and topped them with luncheon plates (Simply Shabby Chic – Target) with a lacy edge.  A Fire King Jadeite Jane Ray salad plate holding a chocolate covered marshmallow Santa tops the stack of plates at each place setting.

The flatware is Spode Christmas Tree.  The napkins tucked in between the white charger and funky out of round red plate are traditional red plaid.   The milk glass goblets are from a set of milk glass dinnerware I found here.

The four little vintage Santa mugs are from my collection.  My collection includes eight vintage mugs that I’ve collected over the last few years.  Unfortunately you cannot drink out of these but I have a new set from Pottery Barn that we use on Christmas Eve.

Target has such cute banners in Bulleye’s Playground that I have gotten lazy about making my own.  This one with red and white checks and Christmas trees on each end is adorable.  I couldn’t even buy the supplies to make it for the $3 it cost me.  I couldn’t get a good photo due to lighting.

You can’t have a  Santa Christmas Table Setting without a vintage Santa blow mold.  He is my favorite Christmas decoration.  I want him to have a reindeer friend, so I’m always on the lookout for one.

Over on the side table I am displaying a few of my red/plaid thermoses and tins.
