Using Poinsettias for a Christmas table makes use of the traditional color palette of the holiday season, plus adds an air of festivity. We won’t have Christmas dinner at this table but we will all experience it. Even with two additional leaves on the table, it wouldn’t be big enough to accommodate all of us.
As in previous years, three banquet tables will be set up end to end in the basement. I’ve learned my lesson about bringing out the real linen when BBQ ribs are being served. With an abundance of pretty fabric-like or plastic (yikes I know) table covers to choose from and with napkins to match the tables will be covered nicely.
These tables will be decorated but not elaborately, we need room for food on the table. Typically I use heavy-duty clear plastic plates and cutlery. Real wine glasses and maybe tumblers will be placed at each setting. Two four-foot tables will be set up for the dessert table and they’ll be covered and decorated also. Dinnertime is later in the afternoon and the dress is casual.
This table is festive and definitely leans to more of the traditional Christmas décor. It starts with a white base tablecloth that has gotten quite the workout this season. The red runner has a sequined motif like the one on my Icy Blue & Bling Holiday. Table
I love this poinsettia centerpiece that was a gift from a dear friend. Usually, it’s in the kitchen or coffee table in the living room.
Along with the poinsettias, I used small gold Christmas trees, glitter votives which will have LED lights in them by Christmas Eve to add a toasty warm glow. In addition to using Poinsettias for a Christmas Table, I placed tall gold cones and a tall white pillar holder at each end.
I bought the holly and ivy sugar and creamer set at the thrift store last years so this is their maiden voyage.
For the stack, I used a larger gold charger along with a red fluted one. Topping the dinner plate is a red salad plate. It holds a white bowl with gold trim. Inside the bowl, I placed my newly thrifted holly and ivy cups. The set of four was only .75. I rolled a poinsettia embossed napkin and placed it inside.
Gold-toned flatware and crystal look glasses round out the stack,
Something very new is the hanging ornaments from the chandelier. I’ve always wanted to do it and now that I have, be on the lookout. Next year you may see hearts, leprechauns, and bunnies just to name a few.
It’s looking like we’re going to have a white Christmas. We’ve had a considerable amount of snow for this time of year. For sure this is the last tablescape of the year. There are gifts to wrap, cookies to bake and a ton of groceries to buy for my hungry family. It’s been a pleasure to style tables all year and share them with you. Thank you for all the visits and I appreciate you very much. Merry Christmas!!
