An Advent Tablescape!

I decided to celebrate Advent with my new tablescape. I put some Christmas wreath around my advent candles.



I like to celebrate the anticipation of the Lord's coming! Candles are one of the best ways!
I played around with the lighting and the settings on my camera- happy with how the pictures turned out.
The little angel reminds me of my grandson!! The face is a deadringer!
I bunched up the tablerunner- liked the effect. The little egg shape in the advent wreath is a miniature manger scene.

I had taken all the pics, when I thought- I am going to add a little more color- added the flowered china salad plates The cool napkin rings were given to me by my sister!This is the last pic of the tablescape! I think it is my fav so far (aren't they all?)
