A Blue Willow Christmas ~ 2020

This is a difference Christmas.
We have to stay home to
stay safe, and we cannot
 gather with anyone.

Our theme this year is
"A Blue Christmas"

My sister Annie decorated
  her tree in shades of blue.

 I'm setting up a tablescape
with her blue willow dishes.

Annie is a collector of cobolt blue glass.

also Blue Willow dishes.

The placemats I made by photographing
 Christmas songs music sheet and 
covering them in plastic.

A new platter, a gift from her daughter, Linda.

I love these bottle lights

I mixed some white and gold dishes in.

The white tree Annie made from coffee filters.

Vintage monogramed silverware

  1. How wonderful to see your beautiful blue Christmas, it all looks amazing. The table mats are inspirational, I love the sheet music idea. Stunning settings.

  2. The cobalt blue is just beautiful!

  3. So fresh and vintage, too. Loving the blue and white...and the music mats are a great idea. Hope you have a wonderful holiday, Sandi

  4. I think blue and white makes for a lovely holiday theme. It's very fresh and wintry. I love the tree, of course and the music placemats are wonderful. That table is really lovely.

    Merry Christmas, Thelma. Yes, no gatherings here, either, at least for us. We plan to outlive this virus and be around for the vaccine! So, it will be quiet -- but still lovely.

  5. Beautiful table styling:-)) We also have no gathering policy in Poland so this Christmas will be different but as beautiful as the previous ones:-)
    Merry Christmas:-)))

  6. No place like home!And yours is stunning and inspiring! I can't get tiring of seeing your Christmas decoration...Merry Christmas!

  7. What a wonderful setting the blue makes! I love the blue hour photo! Those placemats are a wonderful touch to the table and they look so nice with all the blue wares. Thank you for sharing and joining my party the past few weeks. I wish you and your sister a beautiful and healthy Christmas season! Take care of each other and God bless you! Christmas blessings and hugs...Sandi
