Winter Wonderland on a Tray Blog Tour, 2022







Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!

 I am so happy you decided to stop by my Christmas Blog!!

I am now posting 3 times a week !!!
 I will be posting on TUESDAY, THURSDAY and SATURDAY over on my Christmas Blog for the Holiday Season!!

  As always, click on each picture if you would like to enlarge it....


 Today, I am posting back here on my regular Blog for a special post!!!!

  I was invited by Katherine, over at Katherine's Corner, to join her and other bloggers, participating in her Winter Wonderland on a Tray Blog Tour, which she is graciously hosting today!!!

 Thanks so much, Katherine, for thinking to include me among this very talented group of Bloggers and yourself!!
24 Bloggers will be participating!! 

Thanks to those readers who are coming over from Thrifting Wonderland following the Blog Tour!!!

 Didn't you just love Lynne's Tray???

In my last post over on my Christmas Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas, as part of my Christmas Home Tour, I shared the Hutch and Tree in my Kitchen and the changes that I made this year....

 Click HERE if you missed that post.....

Today, I am sharing my Winter Wonderland on a Tray with a tablescape!!!

I started with this unique tablecloth that I recently bought in Gabes for $7.99!!!

I thought it was so different but pretty!!

I chose a simple galvanized tray that I bought for $5 in Dollar General!!

I placed a simple lace doily inside of it......

My Winter Wonderland on a Tray is the centerpiece of the tablescape!!

I wanted to depict a Winter evening....

With a family going to a simple country church in the Woods....

On the tray is a blue bottle brush tree and an Ice Church....

In front to the church is a family of white figurines....

 Both the Ice Church and the figurines, were gifted to me by my dear friend, Anne Marie....
The tray is flanked by 2 snow frosted bottle brush trees....

Since this is part of a tablescape, I decided to add another tray....

A simple silver tray from Dollar Tree....

I placed a tea pot on it....

And 2 snow balls ...

On a snowy Winter evening, a pot of hot Tea will hit the spot, don't you think???

The matching creamer and sugar bowl with trees inside them are in each side ....

The sugar bowl....

An elk is resting in the woods by the church......

The creamer....

And a deer is running through the Woods...

The table is set for two......

I decided to use green charger plates to match the tablecloth.....

The dishes I have used for this tablescape are......

English Village by Salem China Co.


 Crystal wine glasses trimmed in silver....

The cup and saucer....

 My every day Oneida flatware....

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Winter Wonderland on a Tray........

And the tablescape to go with it!!!

  1. Debbie, you captured that Victorian spirit with your table tray. Enjoy the holidays!
    Merry Christmas,

  2. Oooh LOVE that china Debbie, and your tray is a beautiful centerpiece. I would linger over the meal to take in every detail and imagine going out into the wintery weather with your figurine family and woodland animals! :) SO nice touring with you - Happy Holidays!

  3. Debbie, as always your decor is a delight. I loved the use of the tray as a centerpiece. It works really well. My favorite was the teapot and creamer and sugar. I have a real soft spot for tea and love to see it incorporated in a theme.

  4. Deb this is lovely on so many levels. I love the tray with that amazing ice church and the sweet carolers and the blue transfer ware is beautiful. I love that you put trees in the creamer and sugar bowl. SO many fabulous details as always. Oh, yeah and that elk. Love him! Wonderful to be touring with you again. Enjoy all the wonders of the season. XO- MaryJo

  5. HI Debbie, I love seeing blog friends join in on the same tour! It's like a familiar face in a crowd. Love your nativity scene set in the backdrop of the blue and white tea set. That is my favorite! Happy Day friend, laura in Colorado

  6. Debbie, I love the use of the tea set on the tray! One of my favorite ways to decorate and use what I have is to use something for a very different purpose. Very festive!

  7. What a fun design you've created Debbie but they always are. So sorry I missed joining in this time but we are dealing with an injured pup right now. I'll be back for a longer visit as soon as I can. Your Christmas home always brightens my day. Happy holidays to all of you!

  10. hi Debbie, your tray is so pretty, I love your icy church! It looks lovely on that cute tree tablecloth nestled in a forest of trees. You will be able to enjoy your tray all winter long! I chuckled when I saw the snowballs next to the teapot, such fun! Happy December!
