Christmas Sentiments Tablescape

Amidst all the chaos of the season, I just had to put together a Christmas inspired tablescape, because what's a little more chaos on top of everything else?


Votive candleholders were purchased years ago at Target. Goblets were a new find at a local consignment shop, 4 for $8.00, I snatched them up quickly!


I'm calling this the Christmas Sentiments tablescape as that is what my salad plates are named. They are by Casa Moda and each has a different sentiment.

Merry Christmas...


Wish...


Joy...


Peace...


I love these dishes. Blue dinner plates from the grocery store, red chargers & napkin rings from Michaels. Napkins from Bed, Bath & Beyond. Flatware from Christmas Tree Shoppe.


For my centerpiece, a red pillar candle paired with an old candle ring from Michaels sit atop a milk glass compote. Simple, yet festive.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today.

Hi Gina,
What time is dinner? Your tablescape is awesome, and I'm even more impressed that you were able to get one together at this time of year. I love your Christmas plates, too.

The salad plates are so fun and I love that they are all different. What fabulous flatware you have too. I just love the votives. I have way too many votives but everyone loves having their own candles (to blow out and mess around with!!!!)

Gina,your table looks so lovely and festive and your plates unique. I haven't seen any like those before. I think I will copy your idea of putting the centrepiece ontop of a cake stand. Nice idea. xx jeanetteann

Gina , I found your blog over at Fox cottage -that is such a lovely story about the angel and I LOVE your blue dresser that is the perfect shade of blue.
Your tablescape is so pretty too -I would pick to sit at the plate that says Peace On Earth. :-) Glad I found your blog.
