Christmas Decorating Part 2 - The Table

My table is all set for Christmas. I went with a silver and woodland theme with red touches.


I started off with a silver polka dot table cloth, a pine garland, then added silver placemats


Woodland chargers

Red dinner plates and Royal Stafford salad plates


My salad plates are new. I love the English village look of them.


Then I nestled my Mercury Glass candlesticks, deer, and large ornaments in among the pine garland.






I placed my red and silver jingle bell napkin rings on my green cloth napkins. Hm, I wonder if I should get silver napkins?



I love the glitter of the silver mixed with the touches of red and how the pine garland brings in nature.  After Christmas, I can switch out the red plates with white ones and remove the jingle bell napkin rings. Maybe I'll find some snowflake ones or something silvery. Anyway, I'm loving my table in its Christmas finery.



Have a wonderful weekend! Next up will be the mantel, tree, and a couple of other areas.

  1. Your new salad plates are really interesting! Great find Cecilia! So do you keep your table set like that all the time? Is that a table that you regularly eat on or is that just for special occasions? Part of the challenge I face is we only have one small dining table (and a kitchen island) where we eat so it has to be practical.

    I love silver and adding red really perks things up a lot. Hope you're enjoying your weekend. It is terrible weather here. Raining and last night was mixed with sleet. Ugh! Looking forward to Florida! lol

    1. Yes, I try to keep it set or otherwise, stuff would collect on it. We do eat on it...I just pick up the chargers and then reset it after we eat. The dining room is also open to the living room so I want it to look nice. I used not to keep it set but now I do and love changing it up. The breakfast room is much plainer and we eat in there a lot.

  2. Love, love, love your table! It is just beautiful....every little part! Those place mats are gorgeous. I think I "need" some! I am in love with those salad plates as well. I find if I keep my table set pretty that I am less likely to pile it high with stuff through the week...lol! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend at the B Farm!

    Blessings, Vicky

    1. I had the hardest time finding the standing deer...found him in white or gold or black but silver was hard to come by. I'm in love with my plates. Love everything about them!
