Red Bird Table

Have you seen these Walmart plates yet? They were at our store only about a week before they were gone. Not bad for Wally World! I paired them with my JC Penney Outlet red dinner plates, and chargers from Michael's. 




I love the faint gold pattern in the background of the plate. 


I stepped outside the front door for some holly. The tablecloth I picked up at Home Goods. It has a nice quilty texture to it. 



Two of the little red birds are salt and peppers from the same collection.

for Tablescape Thursday.

NO! I didn't see these! I love cardinals, especially at Christmas. I have a tree all decorated in cardinals in memory of my mother. Most of the ornaments I inherited from her & I've added to them over the years. She would love this.

You set a very pretty table with your Christmas finds.

Pat, I saw those at WM and there were only two left. I got four of the chickadee ones instead but haven't used them yet. I love cardinals because they remind me of my grandmother from VA. and that's VA's state bird. Pretty red dinner plate and I really love the candle arrangement. Everything is so pretty. Great job, Pat!

I love your tablesetting with those cardinal plates! They are so pretty, and those birdie salt and pepper shakers are divine. I know you will enjoy using them.

Wow, you got those at Walmart? The table is beautiful and I love the Cardinals. They are so festive but different from the usual Christmas plates. I love the bird salt and pepper shakers too.

You were lucky to get those! My Walmart never has the nice things for long. What is it with women and cardinals? I love them too because my mother did. Thanks for sharing your table!
