Christmas Copycat Challenge

 Image source: Cottages & Bungalows

I am so happy today to join Debbie of Debbiedoo's Blogging and Blabbing for her Christmas Copycat Challenge.   I chose for the challenge a little tablescape that caught my eye in this month's Cottages & Bungalows magazine.  Here is the original table above.  

This is my version.  I used a check table runner and a matching ribbon across the plate. 

The Christmas ornaments were a vintage find.  The dinner plate is Old Britain Castles by Johnson Brothers and the charger  pattern is Athena by Domestications. 

The vintage centerpiece was actually ornaments from Walmart and some votives from Peir 1.  I have always wanted to join this party of Debbie's!  I am so glad I had something I could copy!

Sherry,
your copy is far more beautiful than the sample.. Love the look~!

Debbie said...

Psst. Don't tell "Cottages and Bungalows", but your substitution of the green gingham for the solid makes it go from really lovely to just perfect.

Sherry,
I really like your version better since you used the green checked table runner and ribbon. I'm having a little dish envy right now, though.
