christmas table setting 

Red is a color I love to wear but rarely ever use in decorating.  While I tend to stick to silver, gold and white when Christmas rolls around, this year I just couldn't resist a little pop of red when planning my table for Christmas dinner.  I found this linen hemstitch table runner last year at TJMAXX and have been waiting for the perfect time to use it, and with the plate hutch and all my ironstone platters providing a crisp white backdrop, it's just the right amount of color to add a cheerful touch for the holiday! 

I'm keeping everything else super neutral and playing up the texture with water hyacinth placemats from Ikea, my French wine glasses from Crate and Barrel, woven tumblers from HomeGoods and my new, AMAZING bamboo flatware (more on that to come!).  A few clippings from my green giant arborvitae out back in a silver hotel pitcher in the center and that's it!  I always look for something to dress up my every day dining/entertaining basics and this year the red runner was it - I especially love how amazing it looks with the rattan, water hyacinth and bamboo.  When in doubt, I always add some color and some texture! I can't wait to have everyone sitting around this table on Sunday and Monday and this red is really growing on me, I must admit.  The best part, for me, is that it is completely unfussy.  How are you decorating your table this year for Christmas?

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a New Year of health, happiness and success!
