Joy to the Table
I’m very excited about our Christmas dinner table-scape this year. I’m always in charge of setting and decorating the table for the Holidays, and this year is no exception. When we are fortunate enough to all get together at my parent’s house, I often find my inspiration from their backyard and gardens. This year, however, I found it from the same Christmas plate we have been using for years. My mother has collected Spode china in the Christmas Tree pattern for as long as I can remember. I was never very fond of it and have always wished we had something, well, less ornate. But this year, it will be the star of the show. Paired with gold chargers, and white linens and fresh pine tree branches from the yard (still have to use something!), it will hopefully achieve an elegant and whimsical feeling.
Here are some beautiful table-scape ideas to inspire you for your setting next week. There’s still time, so go ahead and make a plan to dazzle your guests! Check out the inspiration palette for our table at the end and let me know what you think!
