On Christmas Eve, we serve dinner to the same family members who were here for Thanksgiving, so I set a lot of tables for both celebrations. Last year, the theme for the tables was Christmas trees and red plaids.
Each table had a tree wrapped in battery-powered lights in the center. Eight of the dinner plates on this table are Nikko Classic Collection and two of them are Christmas Village with no maker's name. They belonged to my mother.
There were also Christmas tree card/picture holders on the table as take-home gifts for our guests.
In the sunroom, the dinner plates are Corelle By Corning.
On a table for five in the family room, I used Fitz and Floyd, Country Plaid. These were purchased at a going-out-of business sale.
Another table in the family room provided places for three guests. The dinner plates are Holiday Celebrations by Christopher Radko. They were a lucky find at a flea market.
I set a small table for three in the sunroom, using Wedgwood Winter Festival dinner plates that I found at an estate sale.
Do you think I might have too many Christmas dishes? Nah-you can never have enough dishes, right?
Another table for three was set in the family room. On this table, I used O'Tannenbaum by The Cellar. These may be my favorites. I love he plaid ribbon across the top of each plate.
I got the plaid chargers at Michael's last year.
I don't know what my table theme will be this year, but since I wanted to start thinking about it, I enjoyed going back to look at last year's settings. I hope you enjoyed remembering them with me.
