Christmas on the Server

December 10, 2012 by 25 Comments

Hello Friends,  are you keeping warm?   It is a chilly December day on the plains and some hot tea or hot chocolate sure sounds good right now.  I have to tell you about yesterday when the server in the breakfast area tipped on me.  While I was moving it one of the casters (wheels) broke off. This little cabinet holds a lot of dinner and glassware, teacups and other breakable items. Thank goodness none of it broke.  Hubby went to the hardware store, bought two new wheels, fixed it and now we are good again.

Everything had to be removed out of the cabinet and then put back again. Here you see some of the dishes piled on the dining table.  Great time to dust all of them off and put them away again.  So then it was time to play and create a small Christmas vignette on the sideboard.

I placed the shutter back behind the sideboard  ( that is the semi-permanent place for it) since it makes a great backdrop for seasonal decorating.

I found this cute silver heart at the store the other day,  it jumped in my cart and came home with me.

The decorations include, greens, candles and some ornaments.  The angel under the cloche has been with us for a long time.  He is so cute all white…I think he is missing a small candle though.

Leaning against the shutter is a wooden star and burlap ribbon pours out at that point.   I love the festive appearance and the calm and warm glow of the candle-light in this silver goblet.

Stay warm sweet friends and have a wonderfully blessed week ahead.

    Pretty! Just had to tell you, I have a set if shutters that look almost identical to yours that I also use in decorating. They are a great backdrop piece and are so versatile. They’ve been in several rooms in the house.

    I popped over from the Southern Hospitality link party, I love your happy little server vignette! I used a lot of burlap, silver and white in my decorating this year. I think I am going to have to look for a star like yours, I am in love! And about that silver heart jumping into your cart to hitch a ride home – that happens to me ALL the time. 🙂
    Thanks for sharing – you have a new follower!

    Nobody mentioned anything about your pine wreath — I love it!!..It now gives me an excuse to go back to Joann’s & look for the beautiful heart & a pine swag..
    BTW – I’m so glad that nothing broke also. That would have been heartbreaking!
