New Christmas China

I have some new Christmas china! Last year my daughter gave me a few pieces of this pretty pale yellow Fiesta china, mainly because it matches the Fiesta china we use for our everyday china. I also have it on my wish list this year, so may receive more!
This is a real tablescape that real people will be eating at, not imaginary people! LOL! I quickly put this together today using what I had on hand. I chose to use this burgundy tablecloth instead of a green one, I like the contrast with the pale yellow.
I used tiny toys for the centerpiece, some things that may be under the tree, along with a mini tree and a Santa:

The yellow flatware also coordinated better than any other:

Close-up of the Christmas tree on the salad plate:
It doesn't have a name on the back, just the Fiesta logo, I think it is just called Christmas Fiesta.

After taking these pictures and posting them on my blog tonight I realized I had forgotten to use the Christmas mugs in the pictures! Tonight I tried to take more pictures, but the lighting is so bad, the colors are off, and the flash didn't work either. I'll show them anyway, sorry about the poor quality.

Okay, back to the daytime photos, the true colors:

I hope you like my plain and simple tablescape! Nothing fancy! I even chose not to use chargers.


This is where we'll have our Christmas dinner of eye round roast, potatoes, carrots, peas, etc!
Won't you join us!


It will be a very small affair, my husband, his son, and me. You are welcome!


One more shot with the mug:
I hope you enjoyed seeing my new Christmas china!

I'm joining Susan's Tablescape Thursday, click on her name for lots more inspiration.

Merry Christmas!

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too .. xoxo
