How To Create Two Festive Table Settings will be what I show you on the 9th day of Christmas. Yes, that is the theme for today’s 12 Days of Christmas series.
Meet Your Hosts
They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!
I decided to use the Christmas dinnerware on the dining room table so that became the inspiration. The china has a Currier and Ives pattern. It is green which is what I used for the main color.
I really like placemats and have quite a collection. This table got the plaid placemats. Although red is the main color the plaid has the same green as the dinnerware so it works. The napkins are cream with boughs of holly, once again in the same shade of green.
The chargers I showed you on day 5 carry on the green. I completed the scene by working on the centerpiece. The mainstay is a metal tray that I got a couple of years ago at Sur La Table. It was expensive but I had a gift certificate and it was on sale. I absolutely love it. I stack plates in the tray. Some are pretty ironstone and there are 4 with a snowman motif. The plates give height and interest. The little snowman that I made is sitting on the white plates looking over the snowman plates.
I tucked various picks between the plates. The red balls repeat the red in the placemats and napkins. The pinecones with the green glitter are the same as what is on the chargers. And to add that sparkle I got out the crystal.
Moving to the kitchen I am using the ironstone I use every day. The placemats are more formal than the plates but I like the combination. They are cream with a dark red design. The napkins carry out the red and have silver running through the material. The reindeer napkin rings give it a playful look. The everyday flatware is out but the crystal makes the table look dressed up.
I love the round tray which is the base for the centerpiece. I put the penguin cookie jar on one side. The red cup is a keepsake that my stepson made when he was about 10 and is filled with picks that carry out the red. For the height, a red mosaic vase is filled with Christmas flowers. In front of it all is a jelly server that became a planter for succulents.
I really like how I created the two festive table settings. How did you create your table settings?
