Every year the women's club that I belong to puts on a fabulous Christmas show house. We call it the Christmas Idea House and it is full of home decor items, gifts and holiday goodies for yourself and to delight your friends and families. All of our proceeds go to local charities and scholarships so it's truly a win-win event! This year's featured home is in Gilbert, AZ and has been part of the Street of Dreams home tour. It's an amazing house!
For the past few years I've been assigned to put together a tablescape to be raffled off. This year the theme was The Twelve Days of Christmas so I narrowed it down to
Three French Hens!
I started with an old crate that I embellished with a hen label printed on old sheet music and filled with three feathered hens and hydrangeas.
The dishes I chose are vintage ironstone, the Richmond pattern by Johnson Brothers.
I took mint julep cups and added a bit of burlap and bling to make votives.
I made napkins out of some French script fabric and found a full set of silverplate flatware at a thrift store, Wakefield by International.
Goblets embossed with crowns hold chocolate peppermint balls for favors.
I also made a burlap runner and placemats shown here with this charming hen casserole dish.
What fun I've had putting it all together! Some lucky winner will get everything on the table, linens, dishes, silverware, centerpiece etc! If you live in the greater Phoenix area mark your calender for the first week of December and come and see us. For more information click on
