Tables of Christmas Past

Well the holidays are upon us as this week we kick them off with one of my favorite holidays Thanksgiving. Although I am not trying to rush Thanksgiving, I couldn't help but to think it would be kind of fun to take a look back at some of my previous Christmas table settings, you know to see what I came up with creatively along the way of my holiday table evolution.

(Just click on the first image of each tablescape to see the entire post.)

"A Dining Room Dressed for the Holidays"

For this setting I used my good old Lennox china paired with white and green touches accented with gold.

Here a quilt was used as a partial table covering which gave the entire table a very countryish vibe. I paired it with a table runner and napkins from Pottery Barn along with wicker place mats and wicker napkin rings to round out the look.

"Winter White Tablescape"

This winter tablescape incorporates natural tones on white which gives this table a romantic feel. Then plenty of candles were added.

"It's a Holly Jolly Dining Room"

And last year I went country again but with black as my new neutral. Natural boxwood topiaries plus red cranberries in the candle globes brings out the festive colors of Christmas.

We are still putting the final touches in the dining room, in the way of Mr. RL's wainscoting, and I will be posting the reveal soon. (I know I am a little behind but it is coming.) And now that the dining room has received a new color plus accessories, I wonder what I will come up with for this year. Right now I am thinking touches of GREEN and some silver for bling, to go with my Boothbay gray!

  1. Oh, Barbara! Everything looks so nice. I love Lennox -that is my daughter's pattern. I have the original Spode and have always loved it. Now, I have to say that I think that last table setting is my favorite of all. I never think of black ane white in terms of Christmas but it is spectacular and the topiaries -oh- all just gorgeous! And those placemats- well, I would roll those up and stick them in my coat pocket on my way out the door. However, I promise to leave the silver! xo Diana
