A Cherished Centerpiece. . .

On Crooked Creektt's Christmas tablescape 
features my cherished heirloom silver chafing dish 
all decked out for the Christmas Holiday.

The most wonderful Season of all 
is the perfect time to 'spruce up' and display my treasured keepsakes.

During a Christmas Open House on Prairie Creek at Memories of Home,
I purchased this taupe linen runner with a monochromatic poinsettia motif.

Placed atop my damask white tablecloth,
I now had a base for the makings of an elegant, 
yet  simple Christmas tablescape in On Crooked Creektt's Dining Room.

I began by placing silver chargers atop the white damask tablecloth.

I followed with my everyday porcelain white dinner plates.

I place a simple dessert / salad plate featuring an elegant wreath 
and simplistic trim in black and white sophistication.

My everyday Oneida stainless flatware combined with 
my rose embossed etched crystal stemware
enhances this black, white and green theme.

This cherished centerpiece was simply put together
by adding two sprigs of faux cedar boughs. . .

with two faux sprigs of glittering holly boughs. . .

and five champagne hued ornaments.

I placed a soft blue and silver votive atop a boxwood wreath
at each of the curved legs of the chafing dish.

It matters not which angle you view this cherished centerpiece from,
for each side is as elegant as the other.

By using a cherished centerpiece,
memories of Christmas past surround me with an air of nostalgia 
warming my heart, home and soul.

Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creektt will be joining
