Holiday Tablescape Done Two Ways

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some
Mistletoe help to make the season bright..."

Everybody knows that, but do you also know what helps to make the season bright? Can you guess? Well let me tell you; a very simple, pretty, and festive Christmas tablescape.
Red and green tassel napkins, red ornaments nestled on top of crystal candleholders, and beautiful red and white roses. These are the little colorful touches that put me in the mood for caroling :).

To create this setting, I basically layered a clear glass salad plate on top of a white/plaid dinner plate.

I love these reindeer gift tags I found in the dollar section at Target. They came packaged in twos so in actuality only cost 50 cents each. They are wood cut-outs mounted on felt, and has twine attached to the top as an option to be used as ornaments. I tucked the twine underneath to maintain visibility of just the reindeer.

Lily is my favorite flower but I also share a passion for roses, and who can resist when the color combination is so aesthetically pleasing.

My very first christmas napkin rings. I have had these for years and seriously every year I pull them out. After all, red never fails when it comes to christmastime. Don't you agree? 

Check out these tassel napkins. I think I definitely have acquired "a thing" for tassels now, considering my dining room drapes are all 

I wanted to put together two looks, so I switched out the salad plates for these festive looking ones found at Target. They are melamine but are really solid and well made. I love that they are kid-friendly and also super cute at the same time.

Well, there you have it; a simple tablescape done two ways. It does not take much to create a setting your entire family will enjoy for christmas. Please pin and share if you enjoyed this post. Thank you and have yourself a Merry little Christmas!

    1. Thank you, and Happy New Year to you Nellie! :). I agree the centerpiece is often the hardest to come up with. That is the reason I tend to stick with simple floral arrangements.
