More Stags and Plaid

See anything new????  Yep, my sweet mom gave me these awesome antler plates (from Pottery Barn) for Christmas!  How did she know????

Oh, yeah, baby!  I LOVE them!

I used many things I already had out from previous tables this season, and since I love stags and antlers and faux bois, these were fantastic.  I even already had the plaid tablecloth (from Homegoods) on the dining room table.   I added plaid plates from Target, and wicker chargers from World Market.

I promise that these napkins were not this sickly green that they photographed, but a classic hunter green.  Of course, I used these stag napkin rings from Boxwoods.  You can see another table I set with these earlier this season here.

This hardworking flatware was super with this.

And this glassware just begged to join the party.

Even though there were only three of us, I couldn't resist using these placecard holders.  Mr. Pressed Pants pretended to look and look for his seat!  

These faux bois salt and pepper shakers and the black forest bear were naturals here. 

I slid the pointsettia and candlesticks around ninety degrees to make the end of the table seem more intimate. 

Of course, these stags were added.

My mom will be here a few more weeks, and since she loves to play with dishes more than anyone, that's exactly what we'll be doing.  Nothing like Mother/Daughter bonding, right?
