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.



Darling table. I love the plates and napkins together. They look like they were made for each other. I also love the wild Santa hair! Dianne

The only time I ever wish for a chandelier is at Christmas when there are so many ideas for including it in the holiday decor. Very cute what you have done.


I love when you show us your decorations, these are beautiful! Really love what you did with the chandelier and what a festive, lovely table!

Santa is always happy when he is in the kitchen.

Look at the chandy, lovely... the plates are adorable too. I have similar but I wait till Christmas to make a table for Santa.

Have a great w/end.

I'm in love with your Santa! I've begun the hunt for a Santa for my kitchen as well. I hope I luck out and find something close to yours. And those Santa plates are just darling! I like the idea of using them to hold a gift card. What a novel way to present a gift card! Thank you for the inspiration!
