Third Time's A Charm

This is the third year that I'm attempting 
to perfect my Christmas tablescape.
Thanks to my Blogger friends for all
the great suggestions.
Comments are always welcome!
Here and here are the last two years.
This year I have added a few special items that add 
a little eye candy and sparkle to the table
as well as a little candy itself!
Last year I was fortunate to find these charming
little reindeer salt and pepper shakers
at Pottery Barn...
Galloping Reindeer Salt & Pepper Shakers-Reg. $30
It was after Christmas and for only a day
PB listed them online for just $6.99!!!
Read here how I snatched them up right away.
I think they definitely compliment my big 
PB reindeer cookie jar centerpiece, 
and add some sparkle with that silver stand.
Did you notice the cookie snowflake
ornaments hanging above the table?
They were an after Christmas find at Kmart.
I want to believe they sort of tie together
the whole cookie jar centerpiece theme.
They sure do look tasty.
Speaking of tasty, while I was strolling through 
the candy isle this month,
I noticed how the Christmas Rolos
were sort of the colors of plaid.
I reckoned they would look charming 
near last year's plaid plate additions, 
and add a nice sparkle.
Again a favorite tradition is including 
Bobs Sweet Stripes Soft Peppermint Sticks 
with their festive red stripes.
New this year 
is a short apothecary jar from Michaels,
I filled it with Harry & David 
"Mondo Milk Chocolate Maltballs".
They were a gift from my mom, 
from my trip to Virginia HERE.
Another Kmart find are these charming little 
plaid bird house ornaments.
One has a green roof,
and around back,
one has a red roof and 
the plaid works perfectly with the scape.
So you see after many additions the 
tablescape takes on a sweet Christmas charm.
And a little Christmas sparkle!
Check out my pantry this year!
The Train has arrived!!!
Hope ya'll are having a sweet Christmas as well!
Thanks for dropping by!

Oh, this is just darling! You have done a wonderful job with the layering on this table. Loved it all, but I want that plaid birdhouse major cuteness. Love the deer plates on top of the plaid ones, and all the repetition of the deer throughout the tablescape. Great job!
