Hello and welcome to my home as I join a group of bloggers for a Holiday Tablescape Blog hop sponsored by Chloe Crabtree @Celebrate and Decorate. At the bottom of this post are links to the other wonderful tablescapes for your inspiration.
Christmas evokes many memories of faith, family and friends, and for me setting a festive Christmas tablescape begins my holiday decorating.
I set a formal table today using my Lenox Holiday china with all formal elements. I love the drama of gold, elegant crystal, a touch of glitz and candlelight.
I wish I could remember when I began collecting the Holiday pattern. For a number of years, all my family gave me pieces of this china for Christmas and birthdays.
The lovely boughs of holly that entwine the border of the plates, remind me of the old Christmas carol, Deck the Halls.
Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa,la,la,la,la, la, la,la la. Tis the season to be jolly, Fa,la,la,la,la,la,la,la,la.
Don we now our gay apparel, Fa,la,la,la,la,la,la,la,la.
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa,la,la,la,la,la,la,la,la. (Just in case you can't remember the lyrics, LOL!)
The song captures my festive mood and tablescape.
I adore this vintage tablecloth that graced my dear mother-in-law's table for many years.
To me, traditional red and green with gold accents has timeless elegance.
For the centerpiece, I used a mirrored table runner embellished with a scalloped crystal bowl filled with various textures and sizes of red Christmas ornaments. On each side of the bowl are crystal candlesticks with red candles and sparkled gold Christmas trees.
