Christmas meals are for making memories and lingering conversation and laughter and love and thankfulness and scrumptious food and family and friends! Christmas dinners at StoneGable are easy and cozy and candle lit and a time to savor the blessedness of the day! Our Christmas starts early in the day and ends well into the night. Dinner is later in the evening and much more intimate and quiet than the hustle and bustle of the day. My table sets the tone for the rest of Christmas evening!
I’m so thrilled to be a part of…
These bloggers are known for their amazing, sumptuous tablescapes. I am so honored to be in their company! You can find the links to their Christmas tablescape at the end of this post.
This year’s Christmas theme is “STARS”! I made dozens of these glitzy little dimensional stars to decorate my tree and table!
A vibrant boxwood wreath greets each person at the table. Any of our guest can take these home as a remembrance of Christmas 2015.
A red and white rimmed salad plate rests on a embossed edged white dinner plate! That little pop of red make the whole table look more vibrant!
To set a pretty Holiday tablescape, we really don’t need Christmas tableware. None of my dishes have a Christmas motif. I use the red and white rimmed plates for Valentine’s Day, Memorial Day and 4th of July! It’s all about the other details on the table! If they have a seasonal flair our plates will take on the same “feel”.
To add to the tables festive look I added a Christmas ornament in the stemmed bubble glass…
…And small glass bowls of ornaments and greens. I’m so fond of repeating elements on a table! It pulls everything together!
The table is strewn with snow! Don’t have a Christmas table runner? No problem, make one with faux snow! That’s just what I did on this table. I might have gotten a tad enthusiastic and sprinkled snow a little liberally! But hey, it’s Christmas!!! Most of the snow runs down the center of the table.
Three boxwood plants become part of a long running centerpiece down the length of the table.
Mercury glass is repeated on this tablescape. Pretty embellished mercury glass pots hold the boxwoods.
I love the detailing on these pots! Mercury glass and snow work beautifully together, albeit faux snow!
Chunky mercury glass candlesticks are positioned down the center of the table giving everything a magical glow when lit for dinner! Make sure you stop back December 22nd to see a Candlelight tour of StoneGable. This table literally sparkles!
The table is ready! It’s just waiting or Christmas day!
