Visions Of Gingerbread (T)

Visions of Gingerbread houses landed in her head…

 Come along with me as we explore my Visions of Gingerbread tablescape.  
With this small round table I'm limited on space and wanted to include some candlelight.  On a whim I placed some tea light candles into the glasses.  I got the benefit of the warm candle glow and it also highlighted the clear glass stemware.

The centerpiece is contrived of a snow flocked tree centered in a pine needle candle ring nestled in the wood bowl. The faux berries and gold garland were added for a festive look!

Pretty Fitz and Floyd stemware called Trestle found at T.J. maxx 

 Adorable snowmen  S & P shakers found at Pier 1

 This leaf and berry tablecloth is by Lauren Ralph Lauren called Bowen red-silver tablecloth found at T.J. Maxx.  I looked for them on line and there's a bunch on Ebay but slightly higher priced than I paid.

 Thankful to be in a comfortably heated home while we're receiving an arctic blast and a snowstorm as I was preparing this table.

 Chargers are from Pier 1. Tartan plaid dinner and gingerbread salad plates from Williams Sonoma.

These napkin rings found at T.J. Maxx added just the right amount of whimsy.  They are labeled Kim Seybert Living.  I only found one package (set of 4) in this color but the other day they had a silver and gold set.  These are a bit large and bulky and I wasn't sure I wanted them for storage purposes but I'm glad I went ahead and bought them.  

Seems as though winter has settled itself in quite well in our area already!
I'm working on staying warm and happy and I hope you are too!
Thank you for exploring my Visions of Gingerbread tablescape with me!

Tablescape Thursday 


  1. Beautiful tablescape, Liz! All of your accessories blend in nicely with each other, and I especially love the pretty napkin rings that pick up all the colors in your gingerbread salad plates! So lovely! Happy Holidays to you, my friend!

  2. Lovely tablescape Liz. Those gingerbread plates are darling. Great find on the napkin rings. They sell that name brand at Horchow. Don't you love the white chargers from Pier? The tablecloth is so pretty and festive. Do stay warm and happy and enjoy your lovely home all decorated for the holidays.

  3. Oh so pretty Liz! I simply adore this! Cozy and festive!

  4. Your gingerbread plates are just beautiful, Liz. The napkin rings add a sweet touch to your lovely table! We don't have snow, but we have the cold weather. It's 25 degrees now, but I'm snug in my fleece pj's. I hope you are warm and toasty as well. ♥

  5. Hi Liz, what a gorgeous setting. I love the plates and the charges are awesome. The shakers are adorable. Everything is beautiful and so inviting. Love it. xo

  6. WHERE in the world did you ever find those gingerbread house plates? Those are some of the cutest I have seen! I love your whole tablescape though--but the plates steal the show for me. xo Diana

  7. A beautiful space and perfect for a holiday celebration. Everything is lovely, but those gingerbread plates are spectacular!!! I love the way you paired them with your tartan chargers! So very pretty!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  9. Very pretty, Liz. Love the tablecloth!!

  10. This table really calls to me. The tablecloth is unusual, but perfect for the setting! The plate stack is pretty, with the gingerbread houses bringing just the right amount of grown-up whimsy.

  11. Hi Liz,

    I DO love your tablescape!! All the elements are just perfect! Don't you love to find Ralph Lauren linens at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods? They have such great prices there. My favorite things on your table are the plaid dinner plates and the darling gingerbread house salad plates. They're beautiful. :) I also adore those napkin rings; I noticed those right away. Your stemware looks so pretty with the tea lights glowing inside, and your centerpiece is very festive.

    Yes, I bet you are glad indeed for a warm house, based on the view I see outside. Wow! I wish we would get at least one good snow here this winter. It's always a disappointment when we have a winter with no snow at all. Thanks for your visit today and have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Very cute Liz. I don't know that I have seen gingerbread xmas dishes. The candle in the stemware is a nice touch. I like your wood bowl centerpiece. I have picked up a couple of them this year when out thrifting and have yet to decide what to do with then. Mine are not quite as deep but I think that they can be used in the same way. Thanks for the inspiration.

  13. Hi Liz - I see the Pier 1 Snowmen Salt & Pepper shakers :) They look adorable on this table. Love the Gingerbread plates from Williams Sonoma - very, very pretty. Lovely table. Helen from Entertablement.

  14. Liz - I just love your tablescapes, and this one is no exception!

    What fun - and I love the red and plaid - nothing spells Christmas like red and plaid!

    Your new salt and pepper shakers are adorable. Your table is just FUN!!!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, sweet friend. Hugs. ♥

  15. Oh I LOVE this table, Liz! The gingerbread plates are calling my name!!! Great idea to put the candles in the stemware! I also love the napkin rings, I would have grabbed them! I store my napkin rings in clear shoe boxes and write "Xmas" or "Fall" etc. on them.

  16. Liz, your tablescape is so creative and beautiful! The gingerbread plates are so sweet and I'm a fan of those cute s&p's myself.

    Think you for the kind comments on my blog. So nice of you! Merry Christmas!

  17. Liz, I love your vision of gingerbread plates paired with plaid plates! I have the same napkin rings but in silver and gold, I never saw them in the festive red & green combo. Beautiful tablecloth and such pretty F&F goblets too! I would love to have had a white Christmas, hope you're staying warm & cozy. ♥


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
