Tablescape Thursday/Snow White Doves

Thanks for joining me for what will be
my last Tablescape Thursday for the year of 2009.

Thanks also to
from Between Naps on the Porch
for being such a gracious hostess this year!

"Peace on earth will come to stay,
When we live Christmas every day."
-Helen Steiner Rice

May the magic and wonder of the season…
Bring joy and happiness to you…
May it be a season you will always remember…
And stay with you, your whole life through…
May the timeless message of Christmas…
Fill your heart and home with love…
May you and yours be forever blessed…
With the peace of the snow white dove…

"There's more, much more, to Christmas
than candlelight and cheer;
It's the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all year.
It's thoughtfulness and kindness,
It's hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding,
And for goodwill to men! all!

This tablescape also includes a couple of trayscapes as well.
My inspiration started with the large white dove in the centerpiece
that I recently found at a T/S.

Then I added several pieces from my sterling silver collection.
I used my favorite silver vase as a base for the centerpiece and then topped it with a mirrored tray to place the large dove arrangement on.

The rest is made up of silver toned plates, and floral picks from Dollar Tree.

White dove ceramic napkin rings (T/S). Pine cones and greenery from my backyard, a pair of Fitz and Floyd bunnies,

and also vintage postcards from my collection.

Thanks for stopping by today and

I hope you enjoyed my final tablescape for 2009!

"May the Joy and Peace of Christmas
be with you now and throughout the new year!"

Lots of love, Sherri:)

Hi Sherri,
I'm terribly late on coming by, but I do love this tablescape and glad that I didn't miss it. All your silver pieces are beautiful. I think I would keep them under lock and key in case I ever figure out where you live. I have such a weakness for it and even you my freind, are not safe from my coveting ways. I do hope your holidays were great. Enjoy the new year and I hope that it will be the best ever.
big hugs

Sherri, I am surely missing you!

Pray you are well. Hugs, Barb ♥

I miss you too Barb, and really appreciate your prayers and concern...

Unfortunately, I had some critical family matters arise just before Christmas that I need to focus on right now. But hopefully I'll be blogging again soon and catching up on my visits with everyone...

Take care, and big hugs to you and everyone,
Love, Sherri
