A Red and White Christmas Tablescape

Red & White Christmas Tablescape

Once again, a plate caught my eye and became my inspiration for this simple red and white Christmas tablescape.  I found these plates on clearance at Pier One Imports.  One of those things that is such a deal, I just had to buy them.  I loved the red and white and knew right away I would use these for a Christmas table. Red and White TablescapeI saw these placemats and thought they would coordinate well with the plates.  I don’t remember where I got them, but I like the look.  This combination reminds me of Swedish decorating.
Red and White Tablescape2I didn’t want this to be a fussy tablescape, I imagine this would be a lovely Christmas morning tablescape.  To me, this isn’t an elegant table, but a welcoming one.  Red and White Tablescape3This cute cake plate with a snowflake pattern on it seemed like the perfect centerpiece.  I tucked some red felt snowflakes under the cover and nestled two white ceramic birds onto the snowflakes.  Red and White Tablescape4In keeping with the snowflake pattern, I used a felt snowflake ornament as a napkin ring.  I rolled my white napkins tightly so they would fit into the snowflake and then folded it over.Red and White Tablescape 8When I thought I was finished, I felt like the table needed a little something more.  Even though the red and white patterns were bold and a great contrast, the table looked a little bland.  I had picked up a couple of these felt mistletoe garlands at Target thinking I would use them to trim gifts, but since they were felt, they mixed perfectly with the felt snowflakes, and added enough contrast to give the table the “oomph” it needed.  I would love to welcome my guests to this table on Christmas morning, wouldn’t you?

      Thanks Paula, I fell in love with the dishes and the rest was easy!

  1. Not fussy at all and very charming! It’s very seasonal without overdoing the theme. You have a very light hand when decorating and know how to pull the look together. Beautiful!

  2. Very pretty and fresh! A nice wake-me-up-before-you-go-go kind of table! (That was a 1980s reference. Sorry…I forget I’m old!)

    I have those same Pier 1 dishes in the yellow-gold, and I love them! I think I’ve only used them once (crazy!), but I do love them. You’ve inspired me to give them another peek at the world!

    Enjoy your weekend!
