I don't often do red, white and green at Christmas. I have a lot of it, but I have been trying out other color schemes during the past ten years.
Earlier this fall, I made a red, white and green table runner, which was the inspiration for this table. I wanted to use it with a set of four candy-themed dessert plates I bought at the end of last season.
So this morning I went down to the basement and pawed through some old boxes of holiday decor to see what I could find to set a classic Christmas table.
I found these Santa napkin rings that I just loved (and still do). I had forgotten I owned this cute salt and pepper shaker set. The stemware - one clear crystal and one green. The centerpiece is a hurricane filled with green/red/white glass ornaments. Ah, traditional colors do bring out the Christmas spirit, don't you think?
This is a spin off blog from my main one where I showcase only the different tablescapes I do.
"Tablescaping" to me just means creatively setting a dinner table or arranging a side table. I especially like to do it in the summer, so I can incorporate my flowers. I collect both dishes and mid-century tablecloths. I have enough of each that I can have a lot of fun playing. I rarely set a table with all the same china, glassware, etc. I like to mix and match (there really is no fun involved in simply setting out an expensive matched set of "good" china, is there?) I love the challenge of designing a unique table with just a little cash and a lot of creativity.
