Tablescape Tuesday: (just a little early!) O Come All Ye Faithful

“O Come All Ye Faithful, Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him, Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord”
-O Come All Ye Faithful

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire…well not quite -but our table for two in front of the fireplace was the perfect ending of a perfect day!  Sitting on the hearth with a plate in your lap and a warm fire at your back is very nice.  We do that once in awhile.  But this setting brings dining in the family room to a new level.  And, Jack Frost was not able to nip at our noses!

And today (at the end of the post), we share with you a recipe for a holiday goodie!

Candles, Christmas lights, and a fire!  Perfect evening at home after a busy week!

Red roses and julep cups of fresh short leaf pine…all that we needed for our little romantic table!

I discovered the vintage poinsettia table square at an antique shop in Highlands, NC!  The napkins are also a poinsettia pattern.  Love the festive colors!

The nutcracker salt and pepper shakers are Fitz and Floyd


Butch bought the roses and arranged them!  He is a man of many talents!

Dinner plates are CMG and the salad plates are Royal Stafford and both were found at TJ Maxx!

Love all the pops of red on the table!

Chocolate peppermint rolled wafers from Williams-Sonoma-so good!


Dessert plates are “Christmas Lodge” and appeared here: A Very Merry Birthday!

On our shopping trip last week, I saw the tartan plaid espresso cups at Sur la Table, so I purchased a couple.  The peanut butter truffles and shortbread cookies were the perfect finish with an espresso!

Our family room Christmas tree in background with my collection of Radko ornaments!

Peanut Butter Truffles
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 tbsp vanilla
1 lb confectioners sugar
White chocolate almond bark

Cream room temperature butter and peanut butter in a large bowl.  Add vanilla flavoring.
Gradually mix in confectioners sugar until fully incorporated.  Roll mixture into 1 inch balls and place on wax paper.  
Dip into melted white chocolate and remove with toothpick.  Add sprinkles for a little fun!  Let stand for 1-2 hours or until white chocolate has hardened.

“Then Pilate said to him, ‘So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king.
For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world— to bear witness to the truth.
Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”
John‬ ‭18‬:‭37‬

    • Bethany, thank you for your question! I always use Benjamin Moore paint! The dining room is Mediterranean Spice, master bedroom is glazed with peacock blue, being the base coat! The kitchen is also glazed with several colors used to achieve the final product! Hope this is somewhat helpful! Merry Christmas!! Pam
