Christmas Home Tablescape

I’m back after a long blogging break and I thought I would get back into the swing of things by sharing this simple table setting that I’ve created for our dinner tonight.

I found this gorgeous red velvety trimmed tablecloth at the thrift store last weekend and wanted to do a setting using it.  It has ribbon embroidered flowers and leaves on each corner.  It is huge! I haven’t added the leaf to my table yet and when I do, the tablecloth will be a much better fit.  But…I just couldn’t wait to do a setting using it on my round table.  So for now, the ends are just draped on the floor.

It’s hard to tell from these two photos, but the tablecloth is a beautiful red color.  There is also a green ribbon border.

I used silver beaded chargers, cream dinner plates and “Christmas Home” salad plates by Royal Stafford.

The lantern surrounded by greenery sits on a silver tray.
