A Pink Santa, Christmas Tree, and Tablescape is a tale of how much I love pink.
So come along for an adventure in tablescaping with vintage and thrifted finds.
The anchor of centerpiece on the dining room table is my charming pink Santa. I found him recently in a new (to me) thrift store. He is actually a music box from The San Francisco Music Box Company. He plays a lovely rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. Santa stands on a Jadeite cake plate surrounded by a lighted bottle brush wreath. Along the center of the table several bottle bush trees fan out from Santa.
The gold chargers were a totally unexpected but lucky find a couple of weeks ago at Goodwill. It was discount day so they were only $1.40 each. They are gorgeous and I couldn’t buy gold plastic chargers for that price.
Each plate is different and all found at thrift stores. I can never resist a pretty plate featuring a pink motif. None of these beautiful plates cost more than a couple of dollars and at least one or two less than a dollar. The pink goblets are also a thrift store find from a few years back. I don’t remember the exact price but I wouldn’t have paid more than a couple of dollars each for them.
The four chairs around the table have an ivory velvet socking tied to the chair back with pink ribbon. A bit of faux lamb’s ear tucked into each stocking.
Ella Mae’s corner of the dining room is where the extra chairs moved when the bench for my bedroom did not work out and moved to the dining room. Decked out in a few ornaments Ella Mae is as pretty as the pink bird on her shoulder, and the a gold heart-shaped ornament is where her heart would be.
Not to be outdone Lacy is wearing a skirt of lighted garland with a pink tulle belt and flower.
On the hunt board a Putz house sits on Jadeite cake plate
accompanied by several bottle brush trees, a few deer, and a car.
A pink faux sheep skin is casually thrown across the bench. My youngest daughter is already trying to make a play for my Santa and sheep skin. The Santa is definitely not moving to Florida.
Of course, the pink Christmas tree is back again this year but it has a different look. Tulle surrounds the tree on the bottom making the tree look like it is floating on a pink cloud.
I found an adorable round pink tablecloth with huge pom-pom edging for the table where the tree sits. The ETSY seller stated that the tablecloth is from the 1950’s. It is in wonderful vintage condition.
