Christmas Evening Table

 Sunday Favorites
Thanks Chari for all the inspiration you have given me during the first year of my blog!

I love red and white and dining by the soft glow of candlelight.  I set a simple table this year due to time constraints.  Sometimes simplicity is just what I need with everything else I have to do during the holidays.
I just layered a white lace tablecloth over my red plaid one.  The plates are from Target and the red goblets I bought in a little shop in Grapevine, Texas a few years ago. I love the size and weight of them, not to delicate for my guys to handle. 

Another view of the dining room and Christmas tree.  We are enjoying the soft glow of the new chandelier especially since my hubbie installed the dimmer switch. I didn't order my floral centerpiece this year but bought grocery store flowers and greenery and just added a few candy canes for color.

Hope your Christmas dinner was wonderful and shared with your loved ones!


  1. Your table setting is beautiful. I love all of it but especially the contrast of the plates againest the table cloth.

  2. A very Merry Christmas to you! I see you lime green touches on your blog border. I love this color too... especially in sweaters and scarves!

  3. Your Christmas table setting is beautiful and oh so festive! I also love your wonderful holiday header.
