Revisit The Kiddie Table

Today I thought I would share our "kiddy" table from last year to get the Christmas season rolling. Chocolate Santa's stand at attention near each child's place.
Matellasse place mats in green serve as bases for some whimsical place settings. A terrarium filled with glass ornaments is an easy centerpiece and keeps breakables behind glass so little hands can't reach them. A snowman hands candy filled with salt and pepper.

I found some great gingerbread cookie ornaments shaped in frosted letters. Since I knew the names of the kids who would be in attendance I picked up one for each child with their initial and they got to take them home at the end of the night.

The polka dot salad plates made for a fun whimsical addition. I picked them up a few years back at Pottery Barn.

An easy table for five fun kids.

The variety of initials all with different "frosting" kept each place setting a bit different and fun.

I love to decorate chandeliers and my kitchen one is no exception. This one was done in green ribbons and red berries.

I wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving. I pray your home is warm and full of love and laughter. Please visit Susan for more wonderful tables.


  1. This was a charming idea!! I wish I could have seen the smiles on the kiddie's faces when they saw their gingerbread initial!! Love the plates and the neat ornament centerpeice.

    Hope you are having a great Thanksgiving. I'm just waiting for that turkey to come out of the oven!! Yum!

  3. What a fun table! I love the idea of letter ornaments, too cute. Your home is just lovely...your colors are so rich and warm. Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. I love this! I think it is as cute as can be, and those initials would be perfect for a big kids table, too! Where did you find those cute things? They were perfect. Love the red and white polka dot plates, too. Thanks for sharing.

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and a Happy Tablescape Thurs., too!
