Still love my Christmas Tablescape! (Adjusted a bit)

I have had a wonderful, blessed Christmas and frankly, I am not in a hurry to take down the Christmas decorations, soooo, my Tablescape this week is like my last one, just adjusted a little. (Oh, and hey! I got my daughter to do a Tablescape too and she is all excited!)
Another view that glows:

I couldn't leave this nifty reindeer that I bought at Salvation Army the day after Christmas for $1.25- love it! Behind the reindeer is a very tall 3 wick candle I bought (new) at Salvation Army for $4 (yes, I am a candle freak!)
Don'tcha love the angel candlesticks? (Think Valentines' Day too!) and I took out the taper candle from my grandma's crystal candlesticks and put on a pillar and put a little wreath thingy around the bottom for a different look)

This is a huge pinecone from my sister's yard that I spraypainted and glittered. (The green dish was a gift that my daughter received a few years back that she didn't quite "appreciate".)
I played around with the flash and all, so some of these have a "glow"! The candle is actually gold, going along with my red and gold theme (that I also added a little green too) set inside a poinsettia dish.

Cute little gift box that I couldn't resist!

My place setting didn't change, but I still like it- (I have a thing for snowmen AND Christmas trees!)


I wanted to take a picture of my "endtablescape" Love my Santas and if you enlarge this picture you can see the Christmas tree my grandma made years ago is made of those large safety pins.
Couldn't leave out my Santa and Mrs. Claus Publix people. So I put them on the counter with my little Goodwill tart burner I got for $.75!
I also wanted to show my "3rd Christmas tree" on my dresserscape! I haven't been able to find a good candle for these candlesticks and so I put the bells my sister gave me on them! The cute little tree I got at Dollarama in our Mall.I hope you had a wonderful Merry Christmas and also that you have a very prosperous and Happy New Year!

What a pretty table you've created! I don't blame you for still loving it. It's hard to take down stuff when you've worked so hard at it, isn't it? I noticed all of your little cherubs...you could leave those out for Valentines! Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

Love your Grandmother's tree! I imagine she spent a lot of time making that and it's so beautiful.

Everything looked just great. I love the red and gold tablescape-your centerpiece was really beautiful.
