My 84-year-old mother still likes to do Christmas to the hilt.  On Tuesday of this week (with the help of my Aunt and me) she hosted a holiday luncheon for 8 grateful ladies.  Part of her Santa collection took center stage on her very elaborate table.

Each guest took home a snowman lollipop made of white chocolate.
My dad, aged 86, made the wooden tree candleholders.
Here's another view of the candleholders.
The red pressed-glass Santa bottle was my contribution.
These Santa picks have been around for ages.  They go back at least to the seventies.
Santa was even on hand to serve the butter.

This Santa riding a bicycle was one of more than 20 Santas that graced the table.

The Snowman lolly up close.

Santa is everywhere.

A caroler oversaw things from the sideboard.

Lunch is served!

Chocolate cheesecake topped with strawberries, whipped cream, and drizzled with chocolate was served on Santa plates.
This is linked to Tablescape Thursday.

This is wonderful, Pattie! I love your dad's tree candleholders and that bike riding Santa.

I hope that I'm still going strong like your mom when I'm her age. I love to luncheon with the ladies!
