Merry Christmas, friends! Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! Today’s tablescape takes on a farmhouse theme. I am from a rural community in Oklahoma and grew up on a cattle ranch. Therefore, this tablescape speaks to my roots. My favorite collection of Christmas farm plates and thoughts of family were the inspiration for this table.
I chose not to use a tablecloth on my tablescape. I wanted to keep things simple to reflect the farmhouse theme. Instead, I used a pretty table runner and burlap placemats.
These farmhouse plates were collected a few years ago and are from the Walmart Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Collection. I have collected their different patterns throughout the years, but these are by far my favorite.
My Grandmother had a beautiful red barn, and these plates remind me of her. I can remember a lot of Summers when my Dad would work feverishly painting the red barn to make sure it always looked it’s best.
My favorite blue and white cow pitcher filled with Christmas greens flanked by red candles make up the centerpiece.
I also placed my favorite sugar and creamer with my pitcher.
Thank you to all who follow my blog. Your kindness has warmed my heart! I will not be blogging until after the first of the year, but I promise I will be back with new projects to share.
I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas filled with lots of love, joy, and peace. Please savor every moment of this special time with your family and loved ones, and know I will be doing the same.
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields,
keeping watch over their flocks by night.
And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord
shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.
Then the angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy
which will be to all the people.
For there is born to you this day in the city of David
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be the sign to you:
You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
