Classic Christmas Tablescape

Just like the song says, Christmas is "the most wonderful time of the year" - a time to share with family and friends. It's also a time to remember those that are not with us anymore. Pat and I wanted to set the table this time using our Mother's Christmas dishes that she bought a few years before she passed away and silver flatware that our Dad bought for her when we were young. It makes for a timeless and classic tablescape.

After the table was set and Pat was leaving for home, she stopped at the front door and then ran back to the "dish room." She pulled out some colored goblets and replaced the clear crystal. We liked both.'s pictures of the two different settings. See what you think.

The first place setting
The clear crystal goblets are from Pier 1 this year
Here's the same table but with colored goblets

The red stemmed goblet is from Pier 1 last year. The green trumpet flute is from Replacements.
First layer of the place setting is a simple red napkin folded in thirds
The salad plate comes next
The dinner plate comes next
The charger is actually in a pattern called "Mansfield" - also by Lenox

Flatware is Plantation by Oneida

Pat used shiny gold ornaments in the centerpiece with red garland

  1. Reading older blog posts today - both settings are gorgeous (that Lenox Christmas china is the "gold standard" for Christmas tables in my mind. But I do prefer the red and green glassware, I think. So lovely!
