Christmas in July Tablescapes

I am having so much fun celebrating Christmas in July.  My Christmas things are
all packed away, but I did save some pics from some of last year's Christmas meals.

So let's take a trip down memory lane.  This was from a Christmas tea.  I really
need to have another one this coming December.

Last fall we bought a lot up in the mountains and I was so excited about building a
cabin up there that I started to purchase woodland theme dishes and accessories.

The tartan napkins just make me want to snuggle up by the fire with a cup of
cocoa or tea.

I love these plates!  I purchased them from Dee Dee at Forget Me Not Antiques.
Dee Dee is very aware that I have a plate addiction and she shares that addiction.
I promised her that she can borrow them sometime.  Of course when she comes to
visit me up in New Meadows, we will use these plates for dinner!

Birch bark candles from Pottery Barn.  And now let's go visit my Mom's house.

We set up this tablescape together last year.  I bought the glass holly napkin
rings for her at Lord and Taylor in Houston years ago.  I wish that I had
purchased more of them!  I only bought six, and I have never seen them again.

We had a lovely Christmas dinner last year at Mom's house.

This was the fondue table.  We always have cheese fondue while we are opening our
Christmas gifts. 

Wonderful memories!

Let's keep this party going and visit ~

Bentley ~ do you think we have time to publish a post of your
Christmas toys?  You were playing with your Rudy Reindeer squeak toy
earlier today.
