Have a Merry Red and Green Christmas!!


While pulling out different looks for Christmas this year, I decided to honor the traditional colors of red and green.



I had never used these cute ornament salad plates from Cypress Home previously and realized that they would look fabulous with Spode "Christmas Tree" china. You might have read about my obsession with this pattern in a prior post. If you missed it, you can see it HERE.



Although, I have the table set with the ornament plates for salad, I plan to use them for dessert plates, since I am serving soup instead of salad for Christmas dinner.



I am using this wonderful "Christmas Tree" tureen, as my centerpiece and I placed stacks of soup bowls are both sides of it.  I bought this tureen last year, after Christmas, from Boscov's for a ridiculously low price. I was so thrilled, when I found it.



These red Christmas tree bowls were, also, purchased on sale last year from Sur La Table. I plan to use them for bread and butter.  I know, they are not actual bread plates, but I think a roll will fit perfectly in them and I had to use them somewhere!!



The stemware pieces are Tiffin "Killarney" green and Schott-Zwiesel "Delilah".




A Lenox tablecloth and Sferra napkins with jingle bell napkin rings were choices for the linens. Gorham "Strasbourg" silver (my work-horse pattern) will be used for dinner.


 

A few other accessories were added and I was finished!  Now, all I need to add is food.  Oh, how I wish that Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen and Kitty of Kitty's Kozy Kitchen were here to cook for me.  I could really use their help! If you are not familiar with their blogs, you can find fantastic recipes on them, if you visit.

Wishing you all a very, Merry Christmas whatever colors you use. I have great hopes for the coming year that I will be more consistent in posting.  What a crazy year this one has been!!
