Our “collected table” is already for Christmas Eve Dinner!  I love to set the table early so I can enjoy it while I am cooking.  The table is a collection of china, silver, crystal, and of course the fabulous art glass martini glasses that I had Kenny Piper make for The Collected Tabletop, that I love and have collected for many years.

    What a beautiful Christmas tablescape! I would love to hear the story behind your silver centerpiece. Does it have frog?

    By the way, I bet the hellebores that your client gave you are from the Gold Collection from Germany. The are some of the earliest blooming hellebores and usually bloom in late November-December. If you are able to get them to take root before the ground completely freezes, you’ll have flowers for Christmas every year!

    Very beautiful. Those placemats are just darling. Love the beading. Your martini glasses are especially beautiful as are the pieces of thistle bedecked crystal! Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Hi Luke,
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and thanks for your kind words on the card! I found this silver piece several years ago. It has a removable liner that holds water, it does not have a frog. I just use oasis in it and arrange the flowers and greenery that way. I am certainly going to plant the hellebores as soon as they stop blooming. As mild as our weather is now, I hope to get them in the ground before it really freezes!
    Kathy
