A Christmas Tablescape Featuring Cardinals, Reindeer & Tartan

 Our Christmas table was set for our family of six. The centerpiece featured gold reindeer standing on an embroidery enhanced table runner. 

The two reindeer stood beside two Fitz and Floyd candleholders tied with red and gold bows.

The tartan tablecloth brings the Christmas spirit to the table with its fun and festive colors. 

Whether tartan is worn as clothing or used on the table, it has a rich history and I love seeing it at Christmas. 

Topping the tartan tablecloth were place settings with gold glass chargers, gold rimmed china and Lenox Winter Greetings salad plates. 

The Lenox Eternal Gold flatware and gold rimmed stemware add to the sense of regal on the tartan tablecloth. 

It's always exciting to set our tables for Christmas and as our guests sit down for a delicious meal the joyful conversations turn into wonderful memories.

This year, our largest Christmas tree is in the dining room. We had ceiling water damage in our living room a few days before Thanksgiving and I wasn't sure if the living room would even be useable for Christmas. It looked like we might need to open presents in the dining room!

Water damage is the pitts! We are thankful the ceiling has been repaired (what a big mess) and I barely got my mantel decorated in time for our family dinner. None of my Fitz and Floyd Christmas pieces came out of their boxes this year. 

I'll tell you more about the water damage and the fireplace facelift later. Now back to the table?

The Lenox Winter Greetings china pattern is a beautiful setting of cardinals perched in a ring of pinecone, holly and mistletoe. If you look closely, you can also see a sweet chickadee at about 11 o'clock on the ring of pinecones, holly, mistletoe and red ribbon. The chickadee seems to be holding a piece of the ribbon in his beak. 

The server next to the table mimicked the table centerpiece with another embroidery enhanced table runner and a larger gold deer. 

The apothecary jar is filled with shiny ornaments of green, red, and gold. The wreath is enhanced with a few ornaments and red berry branches.

That's it for my Christmas table, thanks for stopping in for a visit - Judy.
