Hi everyone! Last year a couple of bloggers showed Christmas trees that they had in their kitchens filled with all kinds of fun dishes or kitcheny goodness and I really wanted to do something similar. Only I don't have any room in my kitchen for such a thing. I need all my counter space cause there's not a lot of it. BUT I could do something in my dining room!
I was able to purchase some little china ornaments last year during the after Christmas Sales. Not enough to go around the whole tree unfortunately. But I'm hoping to get some more this year after Christmas. I strategically placed what I had on the sides and front and supplemented with 4 demitasse transferware cups that I have.
I was able to get two Spode ornaments at more than 50% off last year and this year I have my eye on some Lenox ones that TJ Maxx has.
Isn't that teapot darling!
Planning ahead saved me quite a bit of money on this project - I didn't buy any ornaments this year. So if you know that there's something you want to do next year it pays to wait for the after Christmas sales and buy then (I'm sure that's what most of you do anyway)! I also finished up my black china cabinet and I'll post those pictures tomorrow. Have a good evening everyone!
