Enchanted Santa and Enchanted Snowman are two fun, whimsical patterns by artist Susan Winget and were produced by Certified International in 2005/2006. The vibrant colours and cheerful sketches are instantly appealing to children and adults alike.
Enchanted Santa has a zillion pattern pieces, from dinner plates through to cookie jars. I confined myself to four salad plates, which are generously sized at 8.25″.
Enchanted Snowman was produced at the same time, but it looks like the pattern was more limited. I got a set of four plates of each pattern on e-Bay for very reasonable prices at the beginning of the season.
Setting the table was a lot of fun. A snowman cookie jar was a natural fit as centrepiece. He’s been part of our Christmas since the kids were tiny. Clear glass jars with vase fillers and candles from Pier 1 flank Mr. Snowman.
I used Pottery Barn Cambria dinner plates as the base, and then added Baronesse White dinner plates by Tirschenreuth, and topped them with the Enchanted salad plates.
Denver plaid napkins and napkin rings from Pottery Barn several years ago worked well in the setting.
Antique Venetian red goblets and Sarah’s Garden green water glasses made a nice combination. Until I looked up the link to those water glasses, I hadn’t realized how many pieces Wedgwood made for Sarah’s Garden. Good heavens! It’s discontinued now, but there are a LOT of pieces to that set.
This little snowman salt & pepper set is from Pier !. I love the little sleigh they come in.
I’m sharing this post with Between Naps on the Porch.
How delightful. It must be hard to decide which setting or combination to use for Christmas day. I love the playfulness of these pieces.
I used to use the most formal stuff at Christmas, but that’s changing with all the little people. I’d rather have them at the table and part of the meal! The poor parents have heart failure with the antique glassware within reach of tiny hands, so we’re moving to a more relaxed style for the next few years 🙂
This is so cute! I snickered when I saw the salt and pepper set in the sleigh as I used the same set for mine! Those dishes are wonderful. Love those Venetian red goblets are gorgeous! Visiting from BNOTP.
I just couldn’t resist those little snowmen! So cheeky. Thanks so much for visiting. Have a wonderful Christmas.
The red goblets are amazing. The whole table is fun. I like the red charger that frames the white plate that frames the very cute salad plate. My mom is a snowman fan so they always catch my eye. Very nice.
I’ve had those red goblets for a long time. They’re kind of a mixed bag in terms of size, but the deep red of the glass and the dolphin is consistent. The red dinner plate is Cambria from Pottery Barn and was a gift from my daughter Lauren one Christmas. So glad you liked the snowmen. I always think they’re fun and playful -very lighthearted.
Such a pretty table for Christmas! Love the centerpiece with the snowman and candles. Beautiful stemware and your plaid napkins,
Thanks Judy! One can never get tired to Santa and snowmen at Christmas.
I love every tablescape that you prepare, and reading your descriptions is amazing. I especially love Susan Wingate since she’s from North Carolina, too (even though I’m a happy south Florida resident now)! I have her full set of Christmas dishes “The Twelve Days of Christmas” which I purchased for a song the first year they came out. I’ve never tired of them, and so enjoyed what you did with today’s offering. Best wishes, and happy holidays!
Thanks, June! I love her work, too. It’s so heartwarming, it’s really easy to style tables with her wares. The Santa and snowmen were fun and quirky, and the strong colors made them just pop. Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season! Thanks for visiting, and lovely to hear from you.
