Woodsy Buffet





I love a woodsy theme this time of year and knew I would be using these ornaments on the table instead of a tree this season.




Antlers seem to be everywhere, but I love the antique prints of these regal animals too. I have seen a few versions of these around. Mine are from a few seasons ago.




I have this cabin inspired vintage pine cone print topper that I've wanted to use, and decided to layer it on a tablescape to show it off.




The script napkins emphasize the script in the background of the ornaments, and the brown transferware seemed like a nice complement too.







I love the print that Pottery Barn is using for a few of their current products including this shopping bag and gift wrap. I asked if I could have some paper and they gave me a bit for free!



The white Rose Point embossed plates by Steubenville make a nice background. I'm also using a few Wedgewood saucers to secure and manage the ornaments too. I had no idea how tricky it would be to photograph these ornies when I started!




Love these little vintage hand painted dipping bowls.




Vintage fish knives and forks left in their tarnished state.













I wanted to feature this small moose pitcher that I discovered at a flea market a few years ago. It make me feel so British! 






















I'm using a ring of lichen gathered from a fall outing to bring the woods to the table.









More birds layered underneath!




























Now all we need is snow!
(Not likely!)

Good cheer, my friends! Thanks so much for coming by!

I love that pine cone table cloth, I have not seen one like that before. The dishes with the pine cones are also very sweet. We only have a 10 percent chance of snow for Christmas, a bummer when you live in Michigan! Hope you are enjoying your holidays so far, Laura

It all looks wonderful together! Love it! Those are cute little dipping bowls with the acorns inside. And that moose pitcher looks perfect there! Gina

The woodsy theme is wonderful. What a stunning table with the brown transferware!!! I have been looking for a few years for a brown transferware pitcher to go with my set. Your table will be so special for Christmas.

I too adored the paper Pottery Barn was showing! I saw it in the catalogs and wondered if they sold it on a roll but never found it. Love your plates & the deer ornaments! I thought they were a mini plate at first! Your vintage tablecloth is wonderful too! The overall wodsie theme with the deer and moose is wonderful! The brown transferware dishes and pitcher are definitely a perfect mix with your theme!

I adore the woodland topper with its subtle hues atop your tablescape! The deer ornaments placed inside the wedgewood saucer adds a touch of masculine elegance to your exquisite dinnerware! What a lovely Christmas and winter decor.

I'm late to the party but had to stop an say how much this tablescape speaks to so many of my loves ~ acorns among them. Made me remember too that I had a moose jug once upon a time. Hmmm. Wonder what happened to that?

Christmas blessings.
