Turquoise in the Dining Room for Christmas

Each year I really like to switch up my table setting for Christmas eve. This year I was inspired by a photo in the Christmas issue of The Cottage Journal of a dining table featuring surprise pops of turquoise. 

You see I have a pretty set of  Noritake china my mother gave me when my parents downsized last year to move back north. The pattern is called Blue Dawn and, from what I've read, this particular pattern was only produced between the years of 1947 to 1951. A pretty short run for a china pattern. I love the delicate flower print and the pretty squared salad plate. My mom acquired the set from a neighbor's family some years ago when our neighbor passed away.

 For the big window I made a large garland of arborvitae and then draped it over the curtain rod. Next I made a runner for the table of both arborvitae and white pine. Both the garland and runner were treated to help keep them fresh. To see how to make your own no wilt garland of fresh greens, just click here

I paired the china salad plate and 2 handles soup bowl with my white dishes. I like the added texture of the white dishes.

I just couldn't resist putting up a coordinating tree in the dining room. More silver trees are lined up on the table.

Turquoise napkins (I was lucky enough to find this time of year at Kohls) in a tulip style fold are tucked into each wine glass.

Is your dining room ready for Christmas? What special touches do you incorporate in to your holiday dining room? Would love for you to share!

  6. Barbara, oh my goodness!!! Such a beautiful room. I was just thinking that I hadn't seem much of your dining room lately, so you did disappoint! Those dishes from your Mom are so pretty and everything on the table is wonderful. Those garlands are really beautiful and I am sad looking at your tree. I envisioned using the boas on our tree and did put them on, but I only had 2 and the tree was too big so I took them away. They certainly look gorgeous on your tree..Merry Christmas..xxoJudy

  7. Barbara, Your dining room is magazine worthy. I love how it all looks . The dishes are beautiful. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, Susie
