Aqua Snowy Trees Tablescape

 Fa La La La La....

I love this aqua (or you can call it turquoise)
Wilendur tablecloth, with such pretty graphics of snowy trees.
This is my porch table as my dining room table is still covered with
Christmas wrap, ribbons, bows & tape.  Isn't yours???

Love the of my favorite vintage Christmas tablecloths by Wilendur.
On my tabletop:
Russel Wright Casual Iroquois china ~local thrift store find I have used often.
Irish crystal stemware by Durand ~ Black Friday score from Macy's a few years ago.
Vintage aqua cocktail glasses ~ Goodwill many years ago.
Westmoreland glass lacy edge dish ~ Antique Mall score.
Better look at this gorgeous dish.
 Black matte console set ~ vintage Tiffin ~ flea market find from a
retired lady selling her treasures. 
Tea towel ~ vintage, designer Marion V. Dorn.
I used a vintage Christmas tree pins on each damask napkin.
This flatware is nothing to brag about.  :)
Love my Christmas tree pins!

Another pin.

The graphics on this towel are amazing.
Have it resting in a vintage Dansk enamel baking dish ~ retro cool.

Aqua, blue and silver ornaments....lovely!
I put these in my pocket while out with Doyle yesterday.
We have a HUGE pecan tree in our yard that is at least 30 years old.
The squirrels and the deer get most of them, but they leave us
enough to indulge some.
I think it's illegal here in Virginia to have a pecan tree and not
make at least one pecan pie, so here is the "Abby's Famous Pecan Pie"
recipe (of "Dear Abby " fame).  Simple and delicious, my "go-to" pecan pie recipe.

 Thanks for visiting!

  4. Hi Pam,
    I love your vintage tablecloth and all your treasures. The vintage pins is such a clever embellishment. I use Dear Abby's pecan pie recipe, too. Merry Christmas!

  5. Pam, that tablecloth is of the best you have shared with us! Great idea using vintage jewelry on the napkins.

  6. That is seriously one gorgeous table cloth! Love the colors and graphics. You did a great table setting using it!

  7. Pam, The tablecloth is wonderful. I loved how used it for the backdrop on your blog. So clever to use the pins on the napkins. Love it! Dianne

  8. I love the icy blues in this winter tablescape! So pretty! And I love the way you pinned the Christmas tree pins on your napkins. I do that at Christmas with my tree pins, too.

  9. Love the winter tablecloth! Our yard is full of pecan trees that have been here since the house was built in 1950, and we don't get a single pecan from any of them. We have so many squirrels that they grab them before any fall off.

  10. This is one of my favorite tablescapes that you've done. I love the colors and the pattern on this tablecloth. I'm looking out the windows in my sunroom and the moon is casting beautiful shadows on the snow. It looks just like your tablecloth. The Christmas tree pins on the napkins are the perfect touch. Pecan pie...can it get any better?

  11. Gorgeous, Pam! My husband makes his father's bourbon pecan pie from Louisiana! But the real question is: PEE-can, or pe-CAHN? Warm Wishes!

  12. My absolute favorite tablescape that you have shared thus far! I love this tablecloth so much and have expedited it to the very top of my vintage linen wish list :-)

    Happy Holidays!


  13. The pins on the napkins are just perfect! ♥

  14. This is really gorgeous. I love all of it, especially the glass bowl. It's so interesting and the shape and edging are really unusual.

  16. Happy Holidays! This is beautiful!

  17. Pam, you have used your lovely tablecloth as a background for your blog! Such talent! Love the cool and icy hues of your winter tablescape. The Westmoreland glass dish is very special with it's openwork edge. Merry Christmas!


  18. I was just telling my husband someone I know was talking about her grandma having pecan trees, and was wondering if we could grow them here? If so, I want to plant one!! Yum! Pecan Pie sounds yummy too! Loving the aqua colors, its nice and wintery! And of course LOVE your vintage pins!! So cute!! Christmas hugs!! xo Holly

  19. We have a pecan tree too and the squirrels love it. We didn't get very pecans this year though. Pecan pie on Christmas sounds delicious. Might just have to make one too. :)

  20. Oooooooo! I LOVE the table cloth! Your collection never ceases to delight me.

  21. Beautiful! Love that tablecloth...everything is gorgeous.

  22. Pecan pie!!!! Why, why, WHY do you tempt me so??!?!?!?!! Now I have a taste for it that won't jump out of my mouth! I guess I'll have to pull on ye olde snow boots and get on down to the grocery store to get some Karo syrup! Man...I can taste it already!!!

    I love it that you're using that great contemporary color for Christmas! It's so lively! I just love how you make everything vintage look so au courant!

    Enjoy your beautifully decorated home!!! Have a great weekend! I'm headed out for Karo! :-)

  27. Well, I am a little behind in catching up with past posts....but I had to comment! THAT TABLECLOTH!!! You could have just posted a picture of the tablecloth and nothing else, I still would have sat and stared at the photo. And you're right, the graphics on the towel are amazing. I hope you had a lovely Christmas, I'm sure I will know that for sure as I catch up to the posts! :) --Fran
