Holiday Table Settings

I know I know I've been going crazy lately with the decorating of the table ideas.  I can't help myself.  For some reason this year I feel more festive than the past three.  So Yes, I'm going to share with you some  table place settings that I love and not so typical.

I'm always draw to style and elegance at this time of year.  Warm and cozy gatherings, sharing of wine with close friends and neighbors and the best is the spontaneous gathering.  I love my loft neighbor and friend Ann's approach....the text message...."do you have 15 minutes"....interpretation, are you ready for a glass of wine?

Enjoy some of my favorite table settings.  I hope they provide some inspiration for your own tablescape creations for the holidays.

 Green glass dishes  sit on top of a gold rimmed charger and topped off with a brown napkin tied with a gold ribbon.  Warm, classy and unique.

 Traditional red toile place setting and crystal glasses are highlighted by a centerpiece of boxed greens, pine cones, and candles.  A very traditional and welcoming table setting.

 Loving this simple napkin setting idea.  Silver utensils embellished with a wooden handle insert states simply elegant.  a sprig cutting from your tree and finished with a gingerbread snowflake cookie.  How creative is this setting?

The natural is staged to be simple.  Set on a wood table but enhanced by creative linen table runners.  Gray plates contrasted with white dishes atop, a white napkin and sprig cutting makes this setting simply perfect.  The addition of tiny white potted paper whites and candles completes this look.

 This white and silver creation promotes a very formal feed.  The addition of silvery gray linens placed over white is beautiful.  Gray, silver white with an embellishment of fresh greens completes this table setting.

This country style table setting is given some added warmth.  Texture is noticed here through the white napkins tied off with a burlap banding napkin holder in natural colors contrasted with red.  The addition of potted topiary trees adds more natural elements to this table.  Rustic and warm creating a casual feel.

 Touches of red and green of course the colors of the season no doubt.  White and gold add elegance to these traditional colors

A red rose napkin sits within a white cup, a very creative idea.

Holy embellished utensil holders complete the look of this napkin setting of red, silver and green. (love the mini pine cones).

Creating table settings for the holidays have endless possibilities.  Rummaging through your kitchen cabinets, china closets and buffets sparks the imagination for creating one of a kind table settings for the holidays. 

Be creative, embellish as much as possible and enjoy the short holiday season.
