Christmas Table for Eight Today, I'm sharing some of my Christmas Eve tablescapes.

Christmas Dinner Plate-Wedgwood Winter Festival

 Some of the tables I'm sharing are incomplete. I am running SO behind this year.

Christmas Dinner Plate-Christopher Radko Holiday Celebrations

On the table for eight in the sunroom, I used Christopher Radko, Holiday Celebrations in four of the place settings and Wedgwood Winter Festival in the other four place settings.

Christmas Eve Centerpiece

My energy level this year is not what it normally is. I've been blaming it on two surgeries and a lot of oral meds in the last six months, but I'm starting to think I just need to admit I'm getting old.

Tablescape for Christmas Eve

I used plaid chargers and Country Plaid Fitz and Floyd dinner plates for eight of the ten place settings on this table.

Christmas Dinner Plate-Christmas Village

The host and hostess place settings are Christmas Village. I tied little red bows on the white chargers to give them a little extra color.

Centerpiece for Christmas Eve Table

I still have to put the beverage glasses and flatware on this table.

Christmas Eve Table for Five

The dinner plates on this table for five are Nikko Classic Collection.

Ornament Centerpiece for Christmas Table

You may have noticed there are no glasses and no flatware on this table either.

Santa Napkin Rings

And another table that still lacks glassware and flatware. I love these cute Santa napkin rings. I just bought these at a sidewalk sale at a gift store. I wish they had had more than four of them. I would have bought all they had. The dinner plates are O Tannenbaum, The Cellar.

Christmas Eve Table Cenerpiece

 I have another table that has to be cleared of my husband's work papers before I can set it for six people. I may be still setting it when our guests arrive!
 I am so grateful for you who visit my blog. It would be a little discouraging if I ran around taking pictures and nobody came to see them! If I'm not able to get another post up before Christmas, I wish you all a blessed Christmas.

It must be wonderful to have that many people to come for Christmas at your house! I have a very small family, so there will only be 4 at our home. Would love to be able to do that many pretty tablescapes. Very nice Laurie! Merry Christmas!

Your table looks wonderful! You always put together great tables. I love the Nikko dishes- that's the first Christmas set of dishes I collected.
Enjoy your big day with the family

Plaid is so in this year and you have used it well. I planned early for various tables so it has not been too painful to get them ready. Enjoy Christmas and all that it brings.

The santa napkin rings are adorable. I love all your tablescapes and the center pieces. Do you assign pkaces at the tables or do people pick a table they like most to sit at?
