Christmas Breakfast Table and Tour

12.11.2015

Every Christmas my (grown) kids expect me to make breakfast on Christmas. I mean we do have to eat, but hey, they could cook for me. :) This year both my kids and all the grands will be here Christmas morning. I love to create a pretty table and this year's table was inspired when I found some new cute plates at HomeGoods. The six adults will sit at this table and I will set the island counter for the grands.



Today I'm joining five other bloggers to share some holiday table ideas. You'll find all the links below and you will not want to miss them.

These are the cute plates that I couldn't resist. Santa gets me every time.

Everything else I had already so I started with this plaid runner and added a holly garland. 

I bought this plaid sleigh years ago at a shop I stopped in after touring some holiday homes. It is perfect for the centerpiece.

I filled it with some frosted pine cones and these pretty pewter and blueish gray ornaments that I found in an antique shop a few years ago. I just love the color of these. Then I added Santa on top.



Plaid napkins were found last year at HomeGoods and even though they aren't the same pattern as the runner they still work together.

I used our red flatware and tied it with some fun red twine.

These ornament salt and pepper shakers are very old. I mean I probably have had these for thirty years or so.



I placed the bench here, but will probably put the chairs back since they are probably more comfortable.

I bought this very old farm table in France when I was lucky to go a few years ago and the two benches were bought then too at a different shop, but they work so well together. Mr. Savvy refuses to sit on the bench though. I do love the look.

Now, I just need to figure out what I'm preparing for Christmas breakfast that isn't a lot of work.

We have a family Christmas get together on Saturday with Mr. Savvy's family and a ballet recital to go to on Sunday that Leila is performing in.

Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Your table is gorgeous, Kim. Simple egg strada and cinnamon rolls can be made ahead and baked on Christmas morning. My sons also love fruit and yogurt "parfaits" sprinkled with a little granola. Serve it buffet style and enjoy more time with your guests! Happy Christmas!

  7. This is really perfect for a Christmas breakfast! I can just see the smiles on the grands faces when they hop up to their santa plates. The mixes of plaid and that perfect sleigh centerpiece are truly a country christmas~the table and bench (whats wrong with Mr Savvy??) give it that special French Country Christmas look that I love.

  21. Very pretty, Kim. I love the mix of plaids- they all coordinate very well. When I see such pretty red & green vignettes, it makes me wish (just a little bit) that I didn't have such an unusual color scheme. Oh, well, I do love my purple, though. :)
