Christmas Blue and White Tablescape ♥

 Fitting for a Christmas Tablescape in South and tranquil colours....with a  special table for 3 sweet little boys to have some fun!

And for the little ones.....

This was my "pre -starter" for around the iced ring of Christmas foliage as a centrepiece for my scrimp and crab meat salad.

Then a second starter made by my friend, Bev ;....  rolled salmon and creamed cheese and chives on a bed of rocket and garnished with fresh strawberries!....

And so Christmas day went on and on....too much food....too much Champagne....many happy memories past and present........silent thoughts....until my last guests left at pumpkin hour!

I am linking to Susan for Tablescape Thusdays' ....please come along with me to see so many talented people.

See you soon!

    Who's that with those darling boys??? How adorable! This post is so pretty. I have made ice rings before, but I never thought to put pine cones in them. That's so clever and so beautiful. I am so envious of you that you can be gardening now. We are too warm for snow, but it will be months before we can plant. I miss it. Happy New Year!

  5. The pine cone & greenery ice ring is a wonderful idea. I hope that I remember to try that next holiday. Your table is so beautiful. The blue of your table cover is such a clear and pure color...right up my alley. I am particularly entranced by the white plate with the cobalt garland. I'll look forward to seeing what else you do with that. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous design and for stopping by my post. The big events truly are exhausting, but the looks on those three precious faces make it all worth while, don't you agree? Cherry Kay
