When the gifts have all been opened, and the work of the season is almost done, all that is left to do is set a beautiful table for the family to gather at to enjoy their holiday feast. Whether you choose a simple table theme with plain white dishes and red or green table linen accents, or a Christmas dinnerware set, there are many beautiful table setting options.
White and gold is a very elegant color combination and works beautifully on a Christmas dinner table. Pretty Charge it by Jay Gold Beaded Round Charger Plates (pictured right) really set off plain white dinner plates. Set on a gold tablecloth with some pretty red napkins, this combination is sure to please, or if you prefer a bare wood table, try a gold table runner like the lighted one below. An idea for napkin holders: simply hot glue Christmas scrapbooking embellishments to plain napkin rings for a beautiful seasonal look. You can always remove the accents later, or keep them for next year.
Try meandering some Warm White LED String Lights with Willow Balls around some decorative candles for your table centerpiece. The low lights and candles would add a peaceful and joyous ambience.
I like the look of a plain simple wood table with an elegant dinnerware setting. This set is from the Spode Christmas Tree design originally introduced in 1938 specifically for the American market. It is the oldest holiday pattern in the US today, and is loved by collectors for its nostalgia and warm recollections of past Christmases. The 12 piece set which includes 4 dinner plates 10 inches, 4 salad plates 8 inches and 4 mugs 9 ounces, and are crafted of durable milk-white porcelain earthenware with rich green banding, safe for use in the microwave, dishwasher, oven, and freezer.
There are many gorgeous Christmas tablecloths to choose from for any sized or shaped table.
A miniature stocking makes a sweet little utensils holder, a cute little added touch for your Christmas dinner table. Or try the sweet Collections Etc – Santa Suit Christmas Silverware Holder Pockets (pictured right).
A mix of two different kinds of dinnerware is another lovely way to set a dinner table. Coupling Fiesta’s Christmas Tree dinnerware accents with their Scarlet Fiesta 4-Piece Place Setting (pictured right) gives a look reminiscent of classic old fashioned country style table settings from years gone by.
There are holiday table runners in holiday patterns or colors to suit anybody’s taste, style and table size. These runners are also beautiful on a side table with cards and decorations displayed. Click images for details or to buy.
