Let's start with a few tartan plaid ideas. Christmas=Tartan Plaid in my book!
Pinterest has tons of ideas. This one is really cute! Such a great way to incorporate a Christmas Village into the design.
Plum Creek Place offers this village inspired tablescape.
Let's turn our attention to simple red and white themes. It is quite cold here today. I have the items to put together this type of tablescape for tonight's chili supper.
I love the stark white and warm red in this scene.
Let's look at a few gingerbread inspired themes. Isn't this one adorable?
I had to add this cute centerpiece! I can imagine a simple dinner during one of the days prior to Christmas with a hearty soup, a casual atmosphere, and this cute display.
Do you collect nutcrackers? Why not make a table setting with nutcrackers as the main element? Here are a few ideas. Our first is from Plum Creek Place.
This one is from Bewteen Naps on the Porch...
What about a candy cane theme?
This one is super cute too! My kitchen theme is gingerbread and gingham. I could use this!
Bottle brush trees and burlap are everywhere and look nice in a table setting.
Our Creative Life incorporates candles, burlap, and greenery for this delightful table.
The next photo is by Michelle Edwards, author of Sweet Something Designs. She passed away last January after battling cancer. Her blog was filled beautiful designs and ideas such as the one posted below.
Isn't this a gorgeous, but simple setting? I really like the fresh greenery and cranberries. I would also like to see this idea in large mason jars. Hmmm, gives me an idea!
Take time to enjoy these days prior to Christmas and take a little extra effort to set a pretty table for every meal. Gather items from your Christmas displays and get creative! Your family will appreciate sitting down to enjoy not only a nice meal and family time, but an inspired table as well.
