A vintage-Christmas tablescape

I apologize for not responding to comments on the last two blog posts.
I will be getting to that in the next two days....promise.
I've been away from this computer more than I've been here, mostly checking some facebook posts when I do turn this thing on.
I answer one or two blog comments, then I'm off again.
Feeling very unmotivated these days.

I did see Amy's FB post about holiday tablescapes.....from Maison Decor.
Amy and five other bloggers got together for a nice presentation, and they all shared their ideas on some gorgeous settings for pretty tables for the holidays.

It gave me some ideas for a tablescape using vintage pieces for my own Christmas table.
Goblets and glasses from antique shops. Silver and linen  from an antique market. Butter pats collected from various shops, and shows.

Some of the pieces used down the center of the table are antique, and some are reproductions.
When gathered together, they make a nice vintage looking display for the Christmas holiday.

The pretty chargers were a sale item from Joss & Main, and the plates are from Target.
Fitting with the theme of a White (shabby) Christmas, here at the Lakehouse
Please put Diana(from Nana Diana takes a Break) on your prayer list. Her family is dealing with a health issue....concerning her husband. Prayers would be a GOOD thing!


  1. Debbie, Yes, I have Diana and her Hero on my Prayer list. This is a sad thing for them.... they are a close family and will be strong thru this. They have the faith. I loved your table. Those chargers are wonderful. I wish I had always bought white dishes. My good set is blue heron transfer ware. Those goblets are beautiful too. Blessings to you and your family. Love you, Susie

  2. Debbie, this is beautiful. I've played with vintage and antique items this holiday season too. I didn't think about my butter pats, but they sure look pretty on the table! Love the bottle brushes too. Diana is on my list for prayers too. Happy holidays.

  3. Hi Debbie,
    So good to see a beautiful post showing your lovely table setting. It is so gorgeous and I'm in love with everything. It's so pretty and vintage.
    I didn't know that Diana was going through a family crisis. I will certainly keep her in my prayers. She is such a beautiful person, just like you.


  4. Debbie,
    Your tablescape is beautiful, I'd love to sit down and dine at your table and share laughter and conversation. Don't apologize we all need time to time to step away from the computer. Prayers being said for Diana's hero and their family.

  5. Debbie, we are two birds of a feather but hopefully our blogging mojo will return in the new year.
    How I wish I could sit at this magical white table you've created, it is gorgeous! I admire the ability to layer plates, lack of storage room holds me back for it looks so appealing.
    Merry Christmas and prayers for Diana's hubby.

  6. Hi Debbie
    Your table is gorgeous* I saw those plates at Target and wanted to get them but they only had 2 left. I love the way they look on your table with the chargers and all the other pretties. Diana is already on my prayer list. Enjoy your Sunday Debbie

  7. Pretty table setting! I love the whites! Diana and her family are in my prayers. She's such a sweet lady!

  8. Oh wow, Debbie! Your table is just gorgeous! I am in love with the pretty pale pink goblets. And your pretty linens and the cute bottle brush trees are perfect for a Shabby Chic Christmas! Love your dishes too and mercury glass candlesticks. I would love to sit at such a pretty table:) I feel just awful for Diana and her husband. She has been in my thoughts and in my prayers, too. She is a gem with a heart of gold.
    hugs to you, my friend!

  9. Very lovely tablescape, Debbie! Have been praying for Diana and family! Blessings, Cindy

  10. Debbie..everything is so pretty!! I read Diana's post tonight and am keeping her and her hubby...and family in my prayers.

  11. Your table is simply beautiful! Thank you for the news about Diana.....going over now to see her.

  12. It's that time of year when we are also so busy that we to tend to loose a little steam. I know it's happened here. Your table is delightfully done. Very festive indeed. Your friend and her husband are in my prayers.

  13. Your table looks beautiful, I love the little bottle brush tree's. All the white plates are gorgeous too! I love your goblets, the color is so pretty! My MIL told me if you leave old glass out in the sun, it will turn color...I've never tried it tho. Don't apologize for needing a computer break, IMO that's a good thing:)

    I'm so sorry to hear about your friends hubby, I'm pretty sure I follow her blog so will have to head over there.

  14. Good Monday Debbie. Your table is gorgeous. Love those pretty chargers. Everything looks wonderful. Yep our bff Diana needs all of us to keep her hubby in our prayers especially these next few days. Hoping for a good outcome and treatment plan for him. Just so hard to see this happen to such wonderful people. Hope you are doing good and enjoying getting ready for the holidays.

  15. Your tablescape looks wonderful! Every single detail is so elegant. I love the little trees, they are so cute. I' ll be praying for her.

  16. Hi Debbie, you have created an amazing and beautiful table setting. Love the pretty pink goblets and all the pretty touches. The little trees scattered about are the perfect vintage touch. So very pretty.
    Yes, many prayers for Diana and John. I'm keeping them lifted all day long!!
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. Blessings to you my friend.xo

  17. Hi Debbie, yes prayers are a good thing, and I left a comment and prayer for her hero, yet she too maybe the hero here. I have a dear long time friend here in my town suffering cancer and just had a bone marrow transplant a day before Thanksgiving. So much going on in the world, and so many of our blog friends suffering some sort of illness, it has put a dampener on the season.

    My step-dad has been taking up most of my visiting due to a serious fall that led to complete hip and bone replacement with a rod down his leg to support the hip and the broken leg between the knee and hip.
    Here I am now taking a mental break and enjoying some winter white....your setting is winter dreamy, and I love the contrast of the white against the raw honey tone table top and the tea-stained bottle brush trees.
    It really does take your breath away here, and my table scape this year won't even compare to the beauty you have set before you. YOU have INSPIRED me to add a lacy plate to my settings, that is sure to make me feel better about my settings.

    See you soon and the beauty you create.
    A Very Merry Christmas to all the sit at your winter table.


  18. Beautiful icy landscape on your table...and angel wings to boot! Merry Christmas to you and yours, Debbie!

  19. Debbie, your table is beautiful. I love the vintage pink glasses in the palest of pinks, so beautiful with the lace. Magical and feminine. xoxo Su

  20. So much pretty eye candy! Your christmas table decorations are really stunning and heavenly. Have a happy holiday!
