Traditional Christmas Table....Styled and Set Tour


Hi everyone, it is so good to finally be home! I am so glad that I had the foresight to decorate this table very early. I knew the kitchen reno was going to happen and make lots of dust and mess so I set this early and took the pictures. Then I put it all away before the mess began. Of course as the kitchen reno was being done we got called away unexpectedly for a week and I feel so very behind on everything. I'm patting myself on the back for at least having this holiday table to ready to share today as part of the Styled and Set tour hosted by Lory at Designthusiasm. If you just came from Randi's of Randi Garrett Design, welcome. She always sets stunning tables. If you are new here I hope you will come back and visit again.

My table is very traditional this year using everything I already had on hand with a couple of new additions.

I love using boughs of greenery at Christmas. I used a vintage grain sack as the base and then layered the greenery.

Ornaments, feathers, French yogurt jars with candles, and pomegranates add a mix of glam and rustic.

I used plates from my stash set upon new gold chargers from HomeGoods.

Very old plates I purchased at Target years ago.

I wanted to add monogrammed napkins so I found these on Etsy and I love them.

I have had the glass hurricane for years and filled it with faux cranberries and a flickering candle.

Brown pheasants, that we will pretend are partridges, finish the centerpiece.

I hope you will take time to visit Yvonne at Stone Gable next. I know you won't be disappointed and for even more inspiration check the links below.

  1. Just beautiful...and so inviting and warm while being very elegant. Thanks for sharing....loving all this inspiration!

  2. Very pretty!
    Do you worry about your beautiful table getting damaged without a tablecloth?
    Are your dinners buffets or do you plate and serve? I find the table gets so full of water pitchers, wine bottles, bread basket, butter dish and so on, so I wonder what others do. We generally serve family-style, passing the dishes. But SIL plates in the kitchen, and the U.S. family does buffets. Even so, the table gets crowded.

    1. My table is only make believe since I'm not hosting this year. I do buffet style when I do host and have had no problems with the table. When I host I have to set three tables usually.

  3. Wonderful table-scape! Welcome home!

  4. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!...from the place settings to the exquisite centerpiece! With this table, there is no need for additional decor as the table is certainly the star of the room!

  5. Your tablescapes never disappoint and this one is no different. I love the centerpiece and the napkins especially...but it's all lovely. I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is never easy no matter what time of year...but at the holidays it is especially difficult. I hope you and your family enjoy a blessed holiday season. I wish you the very best in 2017!
