Poinsettias Past and Present Part One

Yes, I really enjoy poinsettias on my tabletop. Last Sunday, we took at look at coast-to-coast poinsettias. Today, I'm happy to be joining Sunday Favorites at Happy to Design for a look at some floral 'scapes from last year.

And some plaid and toile~

Thanks for revisting these Christmas flowers with me, and be sure to check out Part Two to see a new design for 2010.


  1. Delightful Christmas table settings, one and all!

  2. Love the S&Ps in the first one - I'm thinking I have a "thing" for S&Ps!

  3. Hello my friend...

    So happy to have you join in with the fun of the Sunday Favorites party...what an awesome post! Ohhh my goodness, I just loved looking at all of your different Christmas tablescapes! I was trying to choose a favorite but they are all lovely! I really do like the tablescapes where you used the light green and red color bright and Christmas cheery! Love the pretty lt. green and red plaid tablecloth and how you used the red toile with it...I love toile!!! I was wondering about your dishes in the second photo...the cream colored plates with the red stripe bands...who manufactures those? They're so pretty and I love the little bowls that you used with that place setting! Thank you sooo much for sharing all of these beautiful tables with us for Sunday Favorites...such an inspiration!

    Have a wonderful day!
