Christmas for the Birds


Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends! My hats off to you as I don't know how you can do the preps for this significant holiday as well as Christmas in such a short time.  Here in Canada, having celebrated our Thanksgiving in October, we have it easy compared to you! Hope you enjoy the fruits of your labours!

Here is a look at a Christmas tablescape I created that is literally "For The Birds". 

Birdette welcomes you to the home she shares with her brother and sister.


They have decorated their place for the season.

What respectable birdcage would be without a tree and some presents at this time of year?


The "yard" around their home is landscaped beautifully with green shrubs and red berries.






They even have a view of a tall decorated tree in the distance.


Would you care to join Birdette and her siblings for a meal?
A Christmas place setting awaits and a friend of the family is ready to greet you.


Christmas dishes have been chosen in your honour...
and topped with various patterned red plates. Your choice of a snowflake one,
a gingerbread man/woman one,
a dove one or

a Christmas tree one

To sip your nectar, two glasses have been provided.
More birdie friends have flown in for the occasion.


So glad they could join in the fun!

I hope you can stay the night as it is dark now...


and getting late...

Before you turn in though, Birdette says "Merry Christmas to All....
Thanks for stopping by.   Hope you have as much fun with your Christmas decorating as I did creating this tablescape "for the birds"!

Stunning indeed! I love your plates and your salad plates are adorable. I love the bird cage as a centerpiece and the cute little birdies too. I am decked out but not tablescaping for Christmas yet...after Thanksgiving I guess. Thanks for the inspiration.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. FABBY

I have a bird house (that I kind of inherited when we bought our house) that I've been wanting to do something with. Thank you so much for sharing, your post is very inspirational and now I want to go play with my birdhouse.

Oh and I would love to dine with your birds. Gorgious table setting!

Love your Christmas table. There is so much to enjoy here. I especially love the little bird cage and birds. I really love all the extra touches you do, like the individual little votives at each place setting. Such a fabulous idea.
