Christmas Pink

I feel like it’s been ages since I’ve posted on my blog!  I had to take a little mini break because first my mother was very sick and then not long after she got well, I got sick.  Thankfully we are both well now and it’s great to be back with my blogging buddies!


I want to share with you my absolute favorite Christmas table setting and it is usually the first one I do each year during the holiday season.   I love decorating for Christmas using pink…I know, very untraditional, but what can I say??  I do also use more traditional colors in table settings for my family during the season, but I just love this one.

A snowy white lace tablecloth is layered over a pink damask cloth.


The chargers, handpainted by a talented artist in Texas, were a birthday gift from my husband several years ago.  Among the pink roses dusted with snow are pine branches and white berries. 


With the chargers, I’ve used clear glass dinner plates.


On each dinner plate, a clear glass sherbet to be used for dessert holds pink ornaments decorated with angels and sparkling glass glitter.



Sparkling pink ornaments rest in champagne flutes.


Pink Fostoria footed glasses will be used for iced tea.


Snowflake napkin rings were used on the pink damask napkins.


The centerpiece is decorated with snow dusted pinecones and branches, white berries and pink roses.


A pair of candleholders in the pattern “Caprice” by the Cambridge Glass Co. were placed at each end of the centerpiece and a taller crystal candleholder sits in the middle of the greenery.


I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  I’m also joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.


Thanks so much for coming by today!  I hope you’ll come back again soon.

Nothing untraditional about a Pink Christmas anything. I ONLY do pink for every event/season/day. Love your beautiful detail & presentation.
