Tablescape Tuesday

Last week I showed you our dining room table decorated for Christmas for my first Tablescape Tuesday hosted by Susan and her blog Between Naps on the Porch.

Today I would like to share with you today’s kitchen tablescape! (I say today, because it changes often)

table

Today's table consists of a bronze charger (from Hobby Lobby), Nikko's Happy Holidays Christmas dinner plate and flatware, and a green earthenware salad plate (from Cracker Barrel). The stemware is a simple glass with holly and berries.

Here is a picture of the simple place setting. The salad plate has a raised design that is almost too pretty to cover up with food.

The plates are easy to mix and match with any salad plate. Here’s another salad plate with the dinner plate.

Since this is the last Tablescape Tuesday before Christmas, I thought I would share two other place settings from the kitchen table. The first uses a green earthenware dinner plate (from Cracker Barrel) and a salad plate from Queens multicolor Christmas. I love the non-traditional colors of the plate!

And here is the same dinner plate with the Nikko Happy Holidays luncheon plate.

See how easy it is to mix and match the dishes? My family enjoys seeing the dishes change from week to week…..

  1. How delightful and fun! I LOVE how you've layered the plates and how one tablescape can look so many ways by changing a single dish. Your table is beautiful--and I adore the placemats.
