Last year we spent a truly delightful weekend in Lake Lure with our Mini car club. During the gift exchange, I got this adorable cookie jar. While I was in Greensboro last summer, I found some soup mugs with cars on them, and an idea for a tablescape formed. I put the cookie jar on a new table topper that I just finished.
I wrapped some greenery around the base and added a couple of cute Christmas moose.
The table topper has two blocks, a tree and a bell. The pattern for it is scheduled to publish at MadamSew next week, and I’ll have more on that when it does.
Isn’t he cute? I have two of them.
These adorable mugs looked like Mini Cooper cars to me, although My Sweet Babboo says they are not. No matter, they are fun. I can’t actually use them, though, as they are slated as silent auction items for our charity event.
But until they go, I can enjoy them on the table. I put them on red salad plates atop white dinner plates and red chargers on green placemats.
Every day flatware is added.
My Christmas tree spreaders are put on the table, as I like to actually use them.
Red napkins are held with holly and berry napkin rings.
Drink glasses complete the simple table.
Fun and fresh for every day.
