Woodland Plaids, Bunnies and Scottie Dogs





My first Christmas or Winter table scape of the season. Remember my love affair with plaids? Do you hear the bag pipes? I guess I could call this a Highland Christmas!

I stared off my table with one of my other favorite things. My white stoneware bunny rabbit. I filled his basket with greenery and berries. He is displaying it proudly. I placed some more pine and berries on either side of him to warm up the empty space on the table. How easy is that?







I double layered a black watch plaid with a black ticking stripe.



















More plaid? You betcha. I found these adorable plates at home goods and it was love at first site. That plaid border! Who could resist? I decided to add my black and white Royal Stafford transferware salad plates to the mix.








Each salad plate has a different scene which I love! You know how I adore mixing it up!










Just look what is waiting under those salad plates this adorable Scottie Dog all decked out in plaid. I told you I should call this a Highland Christmas!









Remember the other day when I told y'all that I love to keep some small boxes on hand to place in my Christmas decor. Some on the trees and some ......here. All gussied up in a Tartan bow.




































Tea lights at glow at each place setting and surrounding the centerpiece. A sprig of berries adds some fun to each glass.









Hope you enjoyed my table this week. For more wonderful creations visit Between Naps on the Porch by clicking here where Susan hosts Tablescape Thursday Each week. Stay warm and rejoice in the season!

  6. I think I am in plaid heaven. I love all your layering. I think this might be one of the prettiest tablescapes you have done. Every single detail came together. I love the toile plates with the plaid - perfect. Your bunny looks adorable all dressed in Christmas finery. I also loved your photography. The pics were so soft and elegant. Great job, my friend.
