Santa's in the kitchen

My blog is almost always dedicated to cardmaking, but today I'm sharing my kitchen decorated for Christmas! There is a blog that I have visited for well over a year. She sets the most stunning tables!!! Although my table pales in comparison to hers or any others you will see; it was so fun to take pictures. My Santa has messy hair! I like it that way-he has been so busy!
These little plates are from Walmart (2 yrs?). They were marked down to 50 cents and I grabbed quite a few for my husband so he could give some to his staff with a gift card in the dish. We ended up with a few extras, so they ended up with me. haha
Chargers were from Target clearance a few years ago. Napkins/runner from Pier 1 sale last year. Plates from KMart clearance (last year)
My Santa and napkins match! Love it when that happens.
Pier 1 peppermint candle and candle holders Michael's candle ring
You might see my gingerbread/peppermint tree in the back.
My chandelier covered with beaded garland from Pier 1 and peppermint garland from Michael's.
Please visit the link below to see all the gorgeous tablescapes.

Old School Tilda

What a bad picture! Taken on my iPhone because my camera appears to be hiding from me. This is one of my first Magnolias. Honestly don't think that I could ever part with any Tildas, but some of my first ones are so dear to me. Stamps - Tilda (Magnolia) Papers - older papers (MME?)and SU Ink - Memento and Copics Misc. - Stickles/PTI twine & ribbon/jingle bells/pop-up dots/Martha Stewart border punch
