Candlelight Supper: Dear DEER Tablescape

Dear DEER Tablescape

Dear Deer Tablescape*





As usual I like to include a fun little party favor.  My favorite a red sparkled Christmas Cracker.  Filled with a paper crown, joke or riddle, and a small prize.  I am always astounded how excited everyone gets when they hear the pop noise and grab for the prizes popping out.  There is always a scream of joy.  Adults and children alike. 








I have used two glasses for each place setting.  The white glass is put into an IKEA candle holder that I have spray painted red.  I love to use the holders as a glass holder.  I think they are so lovely this way.  





Napkin rings were originally silver colored.  I sprayed them with a gloss white paint to match the Deer on the plates and the ceramic Deer candle holders.





I have carried the Deer theme into our Great Room.  The cabinet is about 10 feet tall.  Kind of scary to get the deer up there.  The floor is a sunken floor and you have to step up a couple of steps to get to the room on the left of photo.


I will be posting this for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.  
Thanks for looking.  Please feel free to leave a comment.

Oh Deer, Reminds me of the time Grandpa was petting a deer who stopped by for a Christmas visit. Your tablescape is just Gorgeous. It puts me in the mood to say, "A Very Merry Christmas to you."

I love the red and white color scheme! You did a great job with the napkin rings and putting the glasses in the candle holder is such a great idea!

Your red and white is so pretty, Valerie. You were smart to paint the napkin rings. They are perfect in white for this table. Your deer plates are adorable, too. They remind me of a pretty Christmas sweater. I said "wow" out loud when I scrolled to the picture with the poinsettia. The white pot holding the poinsettia is perfectly stunning!
