We wish you a Merry Christmas Tablescape

We wish you a Merry Christmas; 

We wish you a Merry Christmas; 

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin; 

Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding; 

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding; 

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer


 We won't go until we get some; 

We won't go until we get some; 

We won't go until we get some, so bring some out here

 We wish you a Merry Christmas; 

We wish you a Merry Christmas; 

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

What beautiful embroidery on your tablecloth~ I'm in awe of your talent! I love your intimate table for two by the fireplace in view of your Christmas tree! It makes me want to rearrange and make ourselves a space for fireside dining! Wishing you all the Joy of the Season!

Your table is just stunning. Beautiful flowers for a centerpiece is very hard to beat...especially with a couple of pretty candles.
Your tree is so pretty.

What a setting! I love it. Your napkins are just showstoppers and so are the flowers. What a romantic idea. I may have to squeeze in a dinner for two in front of the fireplace too.

Marlis, you always do such fabulous tables...and centerpieces, like these gorgeous roses!
The table topper is so beautiful with all the embroidery around the edges. I love the 3 colored napkins, so festive. The stemware are beauties and look vintage.

My jaw is hanging open over the tablecloth, and then I get the end of your post and read that you made it! You are a real artist. Thanks you for sharing. ~CJ

You still have time to stick that gorgeous, subdued table topper in the mail in time for it to arrive by Christmas...just sayin'. I detect a the touch of an Anglophile in this design. Just beautiful. I pray that your Christmas holiday is proceeding smoothly. My luncheon was today...a Christmas dinner party tonight..two parties tomorrow...and on it goes. Cherry Kay

Hello Marlis!
I have been catching up with you, started at the newest and landed here! The table is just lovely, those napkins are very different! Romantic table for 2!

I loved your NM pics, and as for the tree, I keep the old ornaments, they have such sentimental value!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
