Table Update

Yesterday I posted how was I setting my table for my families Christmas lunch this Saturday December 16th.
I wanted to mix and match my table however just didn't really like the previous blue and white tablecloth so changed to a black and white buffalo check wrapping paper,that I think looks better,it also matching close to my Mackenzie Child's items. Don't you think it's better? be honest. LOL

Also I feed and water birds all summer and winter however I was told the winter is when birds really need water, so I have a heating element inside my bird bath.This is picture his morning looking out my dirty kitchen window LOL Another thing I throw out dry cat food for  a stray cat in my neighborhood and these larger birds are eating cat food !!!!! LOL I also throw out black sunflower seeds for these birds

  1. Janet, I love the checkered paper! Really fun with your red transferware, which is one of my favorites. I have a small collection. I have ruby red goblets similar to yours and I love them. We used them for a party last Monday. You are so sweet to feed the birds and cats. I had a stray cat in my back yard one day. I put out a bowl of milk in case he came back, but it froze. I need to do something similar to what you do. Thanks for sharing with Creating Christmas.

  2. Yes I prefer the black over the blue. It makes your red transferware pop! Hope you have a fun pizza party! Janice

  3. That's a great idea, using paper! I would enjoy sitting at this table!!

  4. The Buffalo check is perfect...I love how it looks with the red dishes. How clever you are to use wrapping paper on the table. Thank you for feeding the birds and the cat. It was someone like you that fed my kitty when she was lost one bitter cold November. I think it helped keep her alive so we could be reunited.

  5. Looooove it! I need a heating element for my birdbath. Where do you get those Janice?

  6. I do like the black and white tablecloth rather than the blue and white one. It feels just a tad more formal to me. Just lovely all the way around.

    I have had a heated bird bath for many, many years; xo Diana

  7. Love it! I love red and white transferware and the plaid napkins are fun too!

  8. Love your red and white with black and white tablescape!

    I never knew you could heat the water in your birdbath! What a nice idea! We don't have many birds in the city, so maybe if I heated up a birdbath I could attract a few over the winter and they'd stick around for the summer!
    Enjoy them!

  9. I L O V E this look! Anything b/w with a splash of color really pops! HPS and have a great weekend Thanks for sharing.

  10. Oh I love this table and specially your beautiful red transferware collection. I specially love the gorgeous tureen.
    Very cute birdbath with heated water too!
    Happy Christmas.
