Cozy And Elegant Christmas Dinner Tablescape

| | | | | | |

I have put together the coziest and most elegant Christmas tablescape and here are all the details!Cozy And Elegant Christmas Tablescape poster.Pin

Welcome to my festive Christmas dinner table!  I’m so excited to share my dining room table that’s all set and ready for our Christmas Eve dinner. I wanted my table to reflect the special occasion, so I made sure to use the holly leaf Christmas china that Pookie bought for me when we were first married.  The only problem is that it’s a bit on the formal side and I don’t want my table to feel stuffy.  I want our guests to feel warm, cozy and at home.  I want them to linger around the holiday table after the meal for lots of laughter and conversation.  I want to create wonderful memories that will stay with me forever!

When the more formal holly dishware is combined with my tartan plaid Christmas dishes, it brings the formality of the china down and cozies the table right up!

The holly dishes have a shiny gold rim, which ties in with the gold chargers.  And the tiny delicate red berries on the holly leaves make it easy to add pops of Christmas red to the table!

I love how the mercury glass reflects the colors and  patterns around the votive cups.  And when the light hits them just right, it creates an amazing lively pattern.

To tie the centerpiece in with the rest of the table, I tucked a few plaid and red Christmas ornaments among the pine needles of the centerpiece and borrowed a few of my cardboard glitter houses from the tree.  The houses are a bit rustic, but the glitter adds to the sparkle!

I’m so excited to welcome my family to our special Christmas dinner table this year!  Do you prepare a special meal for Christmas at your house?

  1. Love the plaid with the holly dishes. Very festive and cozy!

  2. What a beautiful table setting. It completes the room and is so inviting. I sure would linger with another cup of tea. Enjoy your holiday, Merry Christmas!

  3. I decided to not use my Christmas China this year for parties that have already taken place. I wanted a more casual table setting. This is a great idea. Hopefully, I can find a good bargain on coordinating dish ware. Fingers crossed! Merry Christmas!

  4. Your table is so festive. It is a good idea to mix the dishes and I need more dishes to add in with mine. It is so fun to sit around the table and share memories and I can’t wait for Christmas Day. Happy holidays to your family.

  5. Yes…I think adding the tartan plate adds another dimension to the setting. Course, I think adding plaid to anything always works! Looks fantastic Suzy! 😉

  15. Brenda Radliff says:

    I love your beautiful table!! Thanks for sharing!!

  16. I like the idea of using ornaments as place setting/name tags. I think it would be sweet to monogram the ornaments then everyone could take theirs home when they go!

    Also I am loving the Merry Christmas letters.

  17. I loved everyone one of these picks. Could you please tell where you got the beautiful valance on the window. I love the two fabrics

    1. Hi Joyce. I’m not sure which valance you’re referring to????

  18. Your table is so pretty. I like the way that you paired your plaid dishes with your china.
