This is the year of less is more. We are sharing a very intimate Christmas morning. To make it special I decided to use red transferware, pine and silver.
I am so happy to be joining a fun group of bloggers who will all be showcasing their own Christmas tables. I thank Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate for organizing this virtual Christmas tour! This is literally the ONLY kind of tour we have this year.
I used a light gray polka dot tablecloth to lighten up my black table. The grey and white china is my Mom’s wedding china. She has so much china that luckily she passed these down to me. The red transferware plates are also hers.
Do you collect dishes? What’s your favorite pattern? I really love transferware and brown is my favorite.
In fact, as I catalog everything on the table it is all hers. The silverware, the silver, the red beads… The only thing on the table that I bought for myself are the white napkins, the silver napkin rings, the twinkle lights and the pine branches. 😁 Luckily she is happy to share!
You can find real red transferware online at ETSY and Replacements.com. If I had an unlimited budget, I would have set the table with plaid plates from Pottery Barn, which I LOVE. I’ve shared a link to those below.
This table is for our Christmas breakfast, so we will be having coffee and tea. The centerpiece is a silver serving tray. You can find similar serving pieces on ETSY (see my similar find below). ETSY has become my online substitute for going to the antique stores since March. I’m constantly amazed at what you can find on there and how friendly the sellers are.
Next, please visit these other blogs and see their festive Christmas tables. Merry Christmas!
