For every Hallmark store owner, we are celebrating Christmas in July with our Ornament Premiere. So what better way for us to contribute to Tablescape Thursday than with a little bit of holiday cheer. For this occasion, I am using my Lenox Winter Greeting's Everyday dinner ware. I am sure that many of you have this same winter pattern. I enjoy using it after Thanksgiving through the new year.
For those of us who live in Virginia, the cardinal is a very special bird.
Take away the sauce bowl, and we see the salad plate...
and finally the dinner plate.
There are very limited pieces to this Lenox pattern-sauce bowls, soup bowls, salad and dinner plates, and an occasional serving piece.
I enjoy collecting antique napkin rings.
The center piece is a metal sled filled with magnolia leaves, a hurricane shade, and a tall candle. If this were in December, I would also use nandina berries, and some pine to round out the sleigh.
This little fellow was made by my friend Linda many years ago and now rests in the magnolia in the sleigh centerpiece.
A few Hallmark ornaments mark each place setting. This is a new series call Season's Treatings.
And who couldn't resist a snowman or two. This little fellow is Zak E. Zamboni from the Snowtop Lodge series.
The Community Church is the fourth in series from Noelsville.
Could you guess there is a golfer in our household? The Teed-Off Gopher from Caddyshack is sure to be a hit.
Since it is Christmas in July, we must have a hint of patriotism on our tablescape.
Alas, Christmas in July must come to an end.
