Hey Everyone! Just wondering if anyone has any pictures to share of holiday settings? I had a holiday drop-in last weekend and this is one of the tables I had set:

And here is a better picture of the centerpiece I put together:

I also have 2 5' trees for my silver ornaments that are in the entryway:

Looking forward to see other's pictures!

Sure, it is a fruit bowl designed by George Wilkinson for Gorham and made in 1871. I had shown it before in this thread: Favorites in your collection?

Thanks for the great comments.

Marc the chair is part of a set that belonged to my other-half's grandparents so its probably 1930's - 1940's French Provencial repro.

And Nautilusjv, thats a cool setting dessert. What pattern are your dessert plates?

Hi Robert, The dessert plates are Minton, no pattern name just a number H2581. They are circa 1912/13.

Best, Kelly
