Tartan Christmas

My dining room table is all ready for the Christmas season even if the rest of the house has some works still to be done! Here is my table decked out for a Tartan Christmas!

As usual I will be joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Make sure you stop by her blog to see all the wonderful tablescapes!

I started this table with a plaid tablecloth I bought on clearance last year. Next I added some square beaded chargers from Target. They are a warm silver. Next goes a gold beaded charger, then a plaid napkin from Bed, Bath & Beyond clearance last year and finally Original Christmas Tree plates by Cuthbertson.

I used Colonial Shell flatware by Reed & Barton and Kirk Stieff pewter goblets as well as wine hocks from Ross-Simons from years ago. I placed an ivory napkin in the pewter goblet, because I liked how it looked and who doesn't need more napkins?

For my centerpiece, I used a Santa cookie jar surrounded by a red beaded wreath and flanked by evergreen boughs with pine cones and small plaid bows.

So here is my Tartan Christmas table - I hope I was able to capture both warmth and elegance in this tablescape!
