I am having so much fun participating in the Christmas Blogger Block Party. Today's party is Christmas Dining. My Christmas tablescape is cheerful, whimsical and fun! Since we no longer have a formal dining room, I kept my "fancy" Christmas dishes in the cabinet. I decided to just do something different this year. I think it is a happy table - if dishes can be happy, and I think they can! This is most assuredly not stuffy :-)
I started with shiny, somewhat "blingy", placemats that I got several years ago at Target. You can barely see them in the finished tablescape, but I thought they were a great starting point. I topped these with layered red and silver chargers (also purchased at Target). I alternated the red and silver depending on the placemat. Next I layered Wedgewood Strawberry and Vine dinner plates. This simple white plate is so versatile. The salad plates are 4 different whimsical patterns from Radko. I got these a few years ago at Dillards. They are too cute! Finally, I added a little felt stocking flatware holder. I hated to cover the design on the salad plate, but it seemed to be the perfect place for the silverware.
I love these plates!!! Just like Radko ornaments, they make me smile!
I shared the centerpiece a few days ago so I won't bore you with all the little details. I do think it goes so well with the rest of the tablescape. To me, you just can't go wrong with vivid red and green for Christmas!!!
Today I am linking to the following parties:
Come join in the fun!!!
