Poinsettias and Cardinals

The Breakfast room is set up for the Grandchildren when they visit Christmas Eve.
I chose the red Cardinal salad plates, paired with the poinsettia dinner plates.
When I have some extra time, I need to learn how to take better pictures.

The holly leaves glasses I found at the Discovery Shop.
Green flatware is from Ross.

Napkins are from Pier 1.  The napkin ring, I found at Walgreens.

This eat, drink and be merry glass is from the dollar store, along with the poinsettia  dinner plates. They are real glass.

Here's one of our trees all decked out in Gold and bronze.

Well, just sharing some Christmas decor. I hope each and everyone is enjoying this holiday season.
Thank you being a follower and leaving your sweet comments.

  1. Beautiful. I can't believe you got those wine glasses at the dollar store. What a deal. They are adorable! I think your pictures are great!Merry Christmas!

  2. Gosh! Linda! What a beautiful set-up!! What a table! Fit for a King and Queen. In a way it is a shame to spoil it, isn't it? - if you see what I mean. Have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year ~ Eddie

  3. Love your tablescape, Linda! Are those real glass wine glasses? I love em!!!

  4. Hi Linda! Your pictures turned out better than you think! Everything is lovely! So Christmasy! And I love the blog wallpaper and snowflakes! I like the way you incorporated dollar tree finds, since the children will be eating there. I bet they feel special when they eat at your table and visit your home! Merry Christmas! Blessings from Bama!

  5. Your house looks very festive!

  6. Your table is beautiful I love cardinals, those dishes are great. Merry Christmas, Linda to you and your family. xo

  7. Your table is gorgeous - it will be hard to mess up though - for me.

  8. Linda- It looks great! I really love how festive it all is and the kids are going to love it. Half the fun is watching the expression on the kids' faces, isn't it? You do a lovely job of decorating- xo Diana

  9. Another beautiful tablescape with some great deals! Can't wait to show you my Christmas plates, from Walgreens, @ $1.19 each. Gotta wait for my Christmas Eve tablescape,though!
    In case I don't "see" you again until after the Christmas,have a fantastic day!

  10. Lots of great deals out there now! Lucky you to get those wine glasses:) The kiddos will have so much fun visiting. Everything is so festive and the cardinals and dishes are lovely!


  11. What a beautiful table!! I'm guessing your grands aren't extremely young! I'm sure they will be suitably impressed!

    Merry Christmas! I loved seeing your decorations!

  12. Linda, this is so pretty! Your grands will love it! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

  13. Hi Linda-
    What a sweet table for your little darlins! I should think they'd feel very special sitting there! Love the plates and glasses. I love the jingle bells poinsettia you got! I had one last year and just loved it. Very festive!
    Your gold and bronze tree is beautiful- love the topper train outside the window on the arbor?
    Your vignette with the polar bears, angels and rendeer is really nice.
    Merry Christmas to you my friend!

  14. Beautiful pictures! Merry Christmas to you, my friend!


  15. Linda, you sure found some great deals and the dollar store. What a pretty table you've set for the grandchildren.

  16. Very pretty table set for your grandkids. All your decorations are just beautiful. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a sweet comment about the Scrabble Tile Necklaces. The girls loved them. Have a Merry Christmas!

  17. This setting will make them feel real special and loved.
    I never comiserated thinking my kids were too young to enjoy what adults were having... barring the natural cautions they all enjoyed the same as we did. Tis is the Season to make them feel so "grown-up" and Special, isn't it?
    Thank you for sharing so much Beauty! I've already said you in US have the most amazing stores with amazing stuff but what you do with them goes beyond having... is BEING.
    A Blessed and Sweet Christmas to you and your loved ones (doggies included).

  18. It certainly looks festive and Christmassy at your house! I know the kids are going to be in heaven!

  19. Very festive table...I need to find some of those napkin rings. Love your tree.
    Wishing you a Merry Christmas, Linda!

  20. Beautiful table, china, wine glasses and centerpiece..everything is gorgeous, warm and inviting. Your little ones are going to have a ball with you! Sending you pretty Linda a big wish for a very Merry Christmas, with all your dear family.

  21. Wow, Linda! You and I were both had similar sugarplums dancing in our heads when we thought up our trees this year!!! I love the gold and bronze combination...it looks so rich! You did a fabulous job on yours with the mesh ribbon and COOL topper! I have been on a buying hiatus, so I didn't get to buy any of those cool Christmas "Eat, Drink & Be Merry" glasses from Dollar Tree. They're pretty slick! The red, white & green are perfect with your table!!!!!! Great napkin and napkin ring combo!!! I've never heard of the Discovery Shop. They must have really cool stuff there! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Eve with your Grandchildren and a fantastic Christmas week!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Just beautiful.

    Merry Christmas.
