Our week of Christmas cheer is winding down on day five! My blogging friends and I have brought you something new every day this week. Today we’re sharing our Christmas tablescapes and mantles. My Twelve Days tableware from yesterday’s beverage set-up is here today with toys from year’s past for my Christmas breakfast tablescape ~~~
These photos are from my Tybee Island bluwatergetaway ~ and Sea Stars Cottage provided a lovely coastal cottage background for my breakfast table. I would be soooooo happy to see palmettos and palm trees outside a screen door on Christmas morning. My version of a white Christmas is a white sandy beach!
My Twelve days plates and mugs are ready for breakfast ~ and don’t forget the juice and coffee! One year Bluwatermom gave me a set of Twelve Days mini-waterglobe ornaments. I was thrilled and I searched until I found the perfect ornament tree to display them. 🙂
Everyone has a place at my table. My favorite denim tablecloth and blue ticking overlay, with jean pockets holding napkins and place cards. Come as you are ~ pjs, jeans, a favorite sweater are all fine with me. 🙂
Bluwatermom always included a few small toys or games in our Santa gifts ~ and of course I saved them. My friend Vicki confessed to being a sentimental hoarder, and I am totally on board with that! I remember the year I got this Santa wheelie and he is still a favorite. Can’t resist picking him up for a spin!
Some of these things came from my Grandmother’s and are older than I am ~ yes Rudolf, you and the little Christmas trees are REALLY old.
Hey, here’s my spot. Pass the coffee and croissants, please ~~~
Puzzles, toys, juice and coffee are a great way to start any day, but are especially fun on Christmas morning. This is Bluwaterguy’s place ~~~
There’s a place for my Bluwatersis too, so we are all together. This trio of jingle bell wreaths on the door from the porch is a sparkly greeting. 🙂
This is really a pretty simple table. As I shared with my Thanksgiving set-up, my tables are about places settings and food first, and then some decor to make it special. The porch and palms just outside this door are pretty special too ~~~
Check out more table and mantle ideas from my friends Vicki & Jennifer at 2 Bees in a Pod, Coco at The Crowned Goat, Lisa at Concord Cottage and Angie at The Altered Past. Each in our own special and different styles! Though this is the last official day of our Christmas series, I’ll be back tomorrow with my coastal mantle from Sea Stars Cottage ~ it’s a bluwaterlife Christmas series bonus day!
I hope you’ve enjoyed our Christmas series this week. It has been fun collaborating with this group of blogging friends. 🙂 They totally get me and I totally treasure them! Come back tomorrow for my bonus day Coastal Cottage Mantle ~ I’ll have the coffee ready!
