Lenox Winter Greetings Tablescape

Pat decided to set this week's table using Lenox "Winter Greetings" dinnerware - naturally, she did it with a twist. Instead of the usual formal style that the dinnerware evokes, she set a more rustic table with twigs and greenery. And instead of the typical red or green charger, she used blue to bring out the beautiful blue on the plates.

The plates feature a cardinal and a chickadee among the pine and holly.

The napkin ring is a Christmas tree pick with a small chickadee and pine cones

Just a simple centerpiece: Santa stands among greenery and two lanterns

  1. I love this idea! So many people have a blue decorating scheme--or at least a lot of blue in it. Sometimes the holidays are challenging for them. I have some Lenox Winter Greetings--I have all of the beautiful accent plates, a few mugs, and I am just beginning to collect the regular dinner plates. I would never have thought of using blue with it! It looks great! I use my accent plates atop my dark-green banded Lenox wheat dinner plates. I will try some other colors now!

  2. I do love this china pattern, and I really like the napkin rings with the chickadees. A beautiful table!

  3. I just discovered your blog yesterday, and I have been binging on it ever since! Everything is so beautiful, and I love your colour combinations. Thank you so much for sharing your talents to inspire people like me who are just getting the hang of it...

  4. I am decorating my dining room with blue accents and when I saw this collection I knew it would be perfect for the holidays. I love the way you set it with the blue chargers. Everything is beautiful. I will certainly replicate for the holidays.
