Our china cabinet was a new addition this last year, so this is the first year I’ve been able to decorate it for Christmas. I wasn’t sure exactly how it would come together, but I knew I wanted to use my green glasses and some of the red glasses that belonged to my mother.
I really like the finished look and the way the light shines off the various glass objects. It looks great during the day and even better at night. Everything sparkles and gives the room such a cozy feel. I just love it!
All the items in this picture belonged to my Mom. I remember the red glasses from when I was little. We always used them at Christmas and they seemed so elegant.
These items belonged to my Mom also and the covered candy dish was really special to me as a child. Mom always filled it with hard candies. LOL….enough said.
The plate is from my good set of dishes that we use to set the table every year at Christmas. The crystal dish was my Mom’s.
The vintage green glasses I’ve had for a number of years and we use them on the Christmas table every year. The vintage ornaments belonged to my mother-in-law.
Another plate from my “good dishes”. The vintage pressed glass covered jar is one of the few things I have that belonged to my grandmother and it is always included on our Christmas table.
I remember this vintage pig cookie jar sitting on top of our refrigerator when I was a child.
The bear cookie jar is from my husband’s childhood. He has fond memories of getting to eat the treats it contained.
I treasure so many of the things displayed in the cabinet and I’ve really enjoyed having a place to display them where we can see them every day. It’s so nice that I now have a safe place to put them and I’m looking forward to changing the display for each season.
Thanks for stopping by. I’m so glad I was able to share my cabinet with you.
