Vintage Christmas Girl Tablescape

I have been collecting Vintage Christmas Girls for many years. 

This vintage Christmas girl is dressed for Christmas in a beautiful green ruffled dress with a red overcoat.  She has her white hat and gloves and a darling fur purse with a sprig of holly.  She can be singing a Christmas carol or reading a Christmas story.  I elevated her on  a poinsettia cake stand with the same colors as her outfit.  The cloche just gives her a place of honor.

The sugar and creamer that matched the cake stand adds more texture color to the setting.  

I wanted you to be able to see the detail on the cake stand pedestal.

Some of the Christmas girls are angels.  She is dressed in her fur trimmed red coat.  She holds a lantern to light her way.

This darling Christmas girl has a cute holly detailed hat with a muff but she still can't be without her purse.

The Christmas girl's dress matches the dinner plate in this setting.  

Who doesn't love presents?  This Christmas girl would be welcome any place.  See her red shoes peeking out of her ruffled dress.  The details are so great on these vintage pieces.

This Christmas girl has a Christmas card  and candy canes to share.

The contrast of this Christmas girl's dark green coat  with her red and white striped dress.  Again, her white fur purse and cute gloves and hat are so cute.

I used a vintage lace tablecloth to give a feminine touch to the Vintage Christmas Girl Tablescape.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the vintage Christmas Girls, just click on the Ebay Items for Sale under the blog header and you can check out the auctions. I have been collecting Vintage Christmas Girls for years and now they need a new home.   I will be adding more in the next few days.
Please feel free to ask any questions.

This candy cane salt and pepper shaker set has vintage style.
I used this mini gift bag with the "Legend of the Christmas Candy Cane" that I would love to share.

"A candy maker one Christmas many years before,
created a special candy as a testament to the Lord.

He made it with red and white this candy cane you see,
respresenting the blood Christ shed and His everlasting purity.

The shape is a shepherd's staff "Believe", the Lord proclaimed.
Turn the candy to a "J" as in our Lord Jesus' name.

So remember always at Christmas when you hang this candy cane,
the love and sacrifice our Lord gave as testament to His name."
I can't read who this poem is By
