Set Your Table With Flair--A Candied Gingerbread Christmas

Hello, friends!!  I hope this post finds you all in good spirits and ready to celebrate the festive holiday season!  I absolutely love this time of year, don't you!?  Even with the public health and political climate of America being mired in uncertainty, I can't help to still feel that same sort of magic I feel this time of year.  I am a bona-fide, certified Christmas freak, lol.

I have been sharing that I am trying to go with a more whimsical theme this year to bring a sense of levity and fun, and today I am bringing that feeling to the table.  I hope you enjoy!

This table began with a wonderfully patterned topper by Ralph Lauren.  I love the conifer foliage and berries, so pretty!

A garland of green dances down the length of the table

with ornaments, candy cane-inspired candles and trees,

alongside antique stemware.

The centerpiece consists of a darling sled filled with striped ornaments and wintery faux Dusty Millers.

The foundation of the plate stack is a rattan charger followed by a simple red charger, a white plate, and lastly, a candy plate.

The plates feature such a fun peppermint candy pattern, love them!!

Each setting plays joyfully along with either a boy

or girl gingerbread flatware cozy.

A gingerbread spreader and dish ready for whipped butter,

compliments the table, as so do the sweet gingerbread boy and girl S&P shakers.
