I finished up our Christmas table last week and now, no one is allowed to eat at the table. ha. Just kidding. My son asked, why are you setting the table and taking pictures? My response, “I don’t know, seems kind of silly huh?”. Besides taking pretty pictures of the table to share with you, it was a teaching opportunity to show my son the correct way to set a table. Table setting etiquette is a must in my book. Even if you are a boy! Using lego figurines as the guests made the lesson a bit more interesting. ha.
I used holiday greens, plaid placemats with burlap that I cut out and added to the top, glass vases and candlesticks we had around our home.
The silver ware was my great gram’s.
A quick shot of our Martha Stewart Christmas tree that I decorated last month for the home depot challenge. I was in our family room but I moved it into our dining room.
Some fun white bowls from Target. These are part of the collection I got to keep from our Woman’s Day feature.
The new lense I got has an early christmas gift allows me to focus on one certain item and make that the focal. I love how it blurs out everything else. In this picture, I chose the greenery as the focal point.
Again, the greenery was the focal point. I added faux snow from Pier 1 inside the vases along with boxwood sprigs.
I used a mix of silver and glass candlesticks. I love how the silver looks against the glassware.
I will show the entire dining room during our Christmas home tour later this week. I swapped out the striped curtains for bright red.
Using fresh holiday greenery is a quick way to dress up any Christmas table. Pick a tray for the center, add some greens, pinecones, festive ornaments and candles and you a pretty Christmas centerpiece for any table.
