Mikasa Parchment Rouge~ From Harvest to Holiday


I’m making the transition from Harvest to Holiday,

 at the table with Mikasa Parchment Rouge.


With its vibrant red border

and gold scroll pattern,

  Parchment Rouge is a natural choice

for a holiday table!

Mikasa Parchment Rouge

I’m trimming the table instead of the tree,

trading my harvest of pumpkins and Indian corn. . .


. . . for ornaments and beaded garland

for the Christmas Season.


Beaded placemats add some additional sparkle

and shine to the porcelain dinnerware.




Napkins are layered, red hemstitched with sheer bronze,

the same pairing from my fall Parchment Rouge table. . .


. . .but with the addition of a red beaded napkin ring

for a some bling for the holiday season.

    I just knew the Parchment Rough would make a gorgeous Christmas table. Elegant and romantic!

    Beautiful table! The Parchment Rouge is really rich looking. I love the vases of ornaments; perfect pairing!

    Your dining room chair fabric is beautiful!

    Beautiful holiday table, Mary. I think the Parchment Rouge would also look lovely on a Thanksgiving table. The red and gold would look magnificent with the colors of Fall.

    This china does transition beautifully, your glass vessels filled casually with elegant red and gold ornaments dress-up your table so effortlessly for a holiday look that is fancy but not fussy. The napkins too look perfect on both the Harvest and the Holiday tables. I always love seeing tables set with the same things that look completely different. You are all set to glide right into Christmas, I especially love the garland just lying around among the places, so pretty!

    I’m impressed with how well that orange-ish red works for BOTH holidays, Mary! It all depends on what you put with it. Only YOU would find Christmas ornaments with extremely similar gold glittered scrolls. Your attention to such detail never ceases to amaze. No wonder Lifetime Brands asks you to feature their items. You do a spectacular job every time!

    I am paralyzed by the thought that Christmas is so close after Thanksgiving. Very cool how this china pattern transitions from one season to another.

  11. November 25, 2013 at 9:10 am

    What a perfect pattern from Mikasa for transitioning, Mary. I love the glittery ornaments in the glass as that adds such a sparkle to your table, along with the pretty napkin touches. xo

    Gorgeous, gorgeous Mary!!!…I love how you lined the center of the table with the beautiful vases/hurricanes of ornaments…just the perfect compliment to that magnificent china… I can only imagine the table in candlelight!…stunning!

    Beautiful !! I love red & gold together, always have, always will, a perfect pair for a lovely Christmas .

  14. November 25, 2013 at 10:19 am

    What a beautiful table and love the red and gold ornaments for adding a festive holiday look…stunning!

  15. November 25, 2013 at 10:23 am

    Brilliant transition, Mary. These dishes are very pretty and certainly can weave their way though the seasons. I already have visions of how you could use them for Valentine’s Day. Kudos to you for showcasing this pattern in different ways.

  16. November 25, 2013 at 10:53 am

    How pretty! I love the red and gold. It reminds me of the Italian Renaissance!

  17. November 25, 2013 at 11:21 am

    Beautiful table, Mary. One of these days I am going to order some of this pattern.

  18. November 25, 2013 at 11:25 am

    I liked it well enough for the Fall table, but it is simply stunning with the Christmas table…Quite elegant..Love it!

  19. November 25, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    This a gorgeous table Mary. I love the use of the hurricanes filled with the ornaments and the beads spilling over the edge. The napkins are such pretty colors. Great job!


  20. November 25, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    Oooooh! Very pretty. I can’t seem to find the boxes in which my Christmas dishes are packed, so I have no idea what I’m going to do this year. Of course, I suppose that I should be more worried about my inability to find the Thanksgiving dishes. Sigh. Lovely table, Mary. This Mikasa set is perfect!

  21. November 25, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Great idea! I have never owned Christmas china but was informed just days ago that I’m hosting the “Birthday Girls” Christmas Brunch so….I ordered 12 place settings of Mikasa Parchment Rouge from Mikasa today! Best of all it was 20% off. Thanks so much for your feature today. It was the inspiration I needed. Can’t wait to share with you how my table setting turns out.

  22. November 25, 2013 at 10:07 pm

    This pattern is the perfect holiday pattern as you have so beautifully demonstrated. I love the vases filled with ornaments, I have many of the same ornaments! I have almost all of my decorating done, VERY early for me. I am seeing a GLIMPSE of your dining room, love the chairs! Wuishing you a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving. I hope you will be sharing it with family. XO

  23. November 25, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    I meant to ask you, did you find the napkin sheaths at Pier 1 too???

  24. November 26, 2013 at 7:17 am

    I just love this so much! I have eyed that very pattern and wanted it for Christmas here. I’m just too cheap to buy it. It’s just stunning to me.

    What beautiful dishes! They really do make a wonderful transition from fall to the Christmas season. I have Christmas music playing now, looking at all my autumn décor. I wish I could blink it into Christmas. Your tables always inspire. I hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving!

    Oh, so pretty!

    What beautiful dishes! It’s so wonderful how they can straddle two holidays! They looked equally fabulous with Thanksgiving earth tones, as they did with the Christmas setting. I loved the beaded placemats, too!
