Christmas tablescape

Well, after about a year of stalking - I mean following!! : ) so many wonderful blogs with beautiful tablescapes, I decided to post one of my own. It's not as fancy as so many others, but it's beautiful to Dr. D and me. We've been happy to share it with friends and family. Thanks for bearing with me as I share our Christmas table.
(I didn't think about taking all the detail pictures. I'll get better before my next tablescape post.)

The tablecloth is a true red, with a velvet border. There are embroidered poinsettias and leaves on each of the 4 corners. I purchased it at Target after Christmas 2008. The candle holders were a new purchase this year. I bought the set at Walgreens for $5! I love that they are different heights - no need for hidden lifts! : )

I bought my Christmas dishes many years ago at K-Mart. Unfortunately, I only bought a service for 4. I've been looking for more pieces, but haven't had any luck. Has anyone seen this pattern lately??
The glasses were a lucky Goodwill find.

It's called Poinsettia Ribbon and it's made by Fairfield.

The green salad plates are Bordello. I found 4 at a local antique mall and I love them. Sorry - I forgot to take a picture of the back.

I topped the plates with a green napkin with a simple faux poinsettia tucked inside.
Hmmm....not sure why the fork looks so crooked. It's really just a normal fork!!

Well, that's my table. Not too fancy - not too plain - it's just right for us! Thanks for looking!

Now, head back to Between Naps on the Porch and check out all the other beautiful tablescapes.
