Checks and Tartan

Sorry for the quality of the pictures, but we haven't had sun in a couple days. Looks like overcast days until next week, too.

It seems like I have been stuck on reds for Christmas this year...I should have done the tree in all reds.

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

Merry Christmas to my family and friends!

Oh I love love love the plaids and checks. The plates are wonderful. And the flatware and glasses are perfect. This is such a happy bright table - even without sunshine - and the curtains and china hutch go so well with your theme. Your tree is delightful - this is just the perfect christmas table. The row of candle holders is soooo cute. Love the whole thing - and your header too. Merry christmas my dear!!!

Christmas was always hosted by my mom, and now my sister, but if I were to host you would find those beautifully folded red napkins on my place settings ;o) Love the tartan too! Merry Christmas to you and Howard.

I love plaid and checks so this tablescape is a favorite. Thank you for your thoughtful postings to cheer us through the season. bbb

I LOVE checks and tartans and see that we both did the same napkin folds. I like it in the red. I'm still folding napkins (we're expecting 15), and am now wondering if I should try the tree fold with the white napkins as well, or stick with the boot fold as originally planned. I guess I'd better decide pretty quickly!

Oh, the checks and tartan just make me want to put on a robe and cozy slippers and slide into one of the chairs and stay until I can't move! What a charming table. The Christmas tree napkins are great. We tried those last year, but I love them in red - it is so stunning!
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

So very festive, Marigene...I ♥ the red tree napkins like that!
I used some plaids this year for the first time in ages, but it has been too friggin' cloudy to take pictures. Bummer!

I'm glad you enjoyed the red & white quilts. I'm tempted to make another one sometime in 2016.
I hope the new year is a happy & healthy one for you & yours. I'm glad to have 2015 over with.

Miss Jane said...

Wow - those napkins are such a gorgeous red, where did you find them? The plaid against the black & white buffalo checks is gorgeous! Your nutcracker table is also fabulous, love those plates!
Happy New Year!
