Christmas Table #4


This table is for all who really love red...the table is filled with it!
 I am doing sort of a non-traditional table today...starting with a solid black tablecloth. On top of the cloth is a black and cream tablerunner with poinsettias. There are matching napkins, too. I found this set a couple years ago and it is one of my favorites for the holidays. This table only took a few minutes to put together...I ♥ simple tables. I pulled out the red and white from the runner...leaving green for another day.


The placesetting starts with a Bordallo Pinheiro white cabbage leaf charger which is topped with a bright red BHG dinner plate. The salad plate is white with raised pine cones are topped with a red ornament.


The flatware is Oxford Hall Fashion Wear in red...I now have all the colors! The napkin is held with a solid red ring.


The stemware is Ivima 1895 Hobnail.


I had Erin pick up a live poinsettia...now to see how long it takes for it to die...for some reason I just can't seem to keep one alive more than a day or two. I even took it out of the original pot and put it in a small tureen. Candles and bottle brush trees make up the rest of the centerpiece.






Thanks for stopping by today...hope you will return next time.

Your Christmas table #4 is just shouting Christmas with your reds. You are doing great to share four Christmas tables.

I love red around the holidays (and St. Valentine's Day, and the Fourth), so I enjoyed this table. I love the flatware and stemware, and the white plate with the raised design of the pinecone. Highly festive!

Thanks for the blog visit. Do try the Peppermint Patties if you can. I think they are worth doing just to watch the transformation.

Very pretty Marigene. Red is my favorite color for Christmas. I love that you pulled the black from the runner and the napkins to use as the anchor color of your tablecloth. The white BP charger plates pop and set the stage for red to be the star color of your tablescape. The flatware is perfect and the pine cone salad plates are simply beautiful, I am in love with the raised design of the pine cones. You have the prettiest stemware, I love the hobnail design of the Ivima wine glasses. Everything is lovely!

Marigene,
Keep 'em coming, dear friend!!!
LOVE the red white and black showcased here!!!
Those white pinecone dishes are making me swoon!!!
***Tip***
To keep your poinsettia thriving during the Holidays, water when the soil is dry to the touch of your fingertip. I take mine to the sink and water until the water runs through. Allow it to drain in the sink and give it a light misting. Poinsettias don't care to "sit" in water.

Bring on Table #5. . .p l e a s e!!!
