Fun and Festive Christmas Tablescape

It is December ladies...Time to put our best decorating ideas forward, thoughtful presentations and pull out our very best to let every one of our guest know this time of year is special.  Because Christmas comes but once a year, we must make our tables fun, festive and sparkle a little.  No, sparkle a lot...  Bring in the reds and greens with flowers, candles, linens and china to make a festive statement.

For this table setting, I focused on a fun and festive holiday theme with a nod to the past and a little nostalgia.  Some greenery, snowmen and winter village pieces found at Michael's... 

I started with some scrapbook paper with a holiday theme..  Chargers from Pier 1, Johnson Bros. dinnerware, Mikasa Wine Glasses and Reed & Barton Flatware.  I finished the look with napkins from Pottery Barn and a few touches of ribbon mixed around the greenery.  A celebration not to be missed.
So bring on the glitter, greenery and the baking...My philosophy for the holidays is enough isn't enough and too much is perfection!

  36. Hi Janet, I've been skipping by your post quite a bit this week meaning to stop by but always get sidetracked, so when I stopped over at Home to enter again, I saw that you and I were both featured from last week and also saw that you popped by me so I'm finally returning the favor. Your tablescape is so cute. Those dishes are absolutely beautiful, I love the reddish-pink color and it plays so nicely with the whole table. Just beautiful and thanks so much for stopping by the Cottage and leaving such nice comments..Happy Thursday..Judy
