Parchment Rouge and a Merry Mikasa Christmas Table

  Mikasa Parchment Rouge Christmas Table

I’m at the table with Parchment Rouge

for a Merry Mikasa Christmas table!


With its vibrant red border and gold scroll pattern,

Parchment Rouge is a natural choice for a holiday table.


Silver and gold accents along with red and green plaid

provide a festive foundation for a Merry Christmas table.


I decked the table with some evergreen boughs in a silver bowl. . .magnolia, pine, juniper and cypress.


Paired with shiny red apples, pine cones, artichokes and a few glittery ornaments for a punch of shiny gold for a centerpiece, served on a silver tray.



 Gold Accent Corsica Flatware marries silver and gold with a basket-weave design and gold-plated accents.


And sheer red and green napkins are layered over snowy white ones to provide a festive holiday punch of plaid.


A covered butter dish joins a creamer and sugar, gravy boat and salt and pepper set at the table in the Parchment Rouge porcelain dinnerware collection.






Mikasa Capella Iced Beverage Glasses provide some additional sparkle and shine to a holiday table.




 A 2 Tier Server in Parchment Rouge offers double the serving space or can provide a seasonal display with some greenery, ornaments, nuts and apples.



And December sunshine is always welcome and making spirits bright at the table despite providing some photographing challenges :)

    Lovin’ those extra sparkly plaid napkins Mary! Every Christmas I really do get the urge to find one special set of holiday dishes… But with so many great patterns, how would I even choose:@)

    Beautiful dishes! And of course the table setting. Have a great week and a good start into December🎅🎄

    Just absolutely gorgeous. If I didn’t love my Winterberry dishes so much, this would be my next choice. It is time to change out my Mikasa Vanilla dishes for my Winterberry set. Merry Christmas,

    I love the swirly border on the parchment rouge dishes, Mary, and they are so versatile. They are so,pretty for Christmas time, but would look well throughout the year, too. I love your gorgeous centerpiece and I noticed your flatware, chargers and tray right away.

    Gorgeous! So full of inspiration…I glean ideas from every one of your posts, Mary!
    I didn’t know they had a tiered serving tray with this set. I guess I’ll have to go back for more, including those darling S&P shakers! Thanks for the link & the discount.

    Beautiful as always, Mary. Your master skills at work! Hope your Thanksgiving get away was splendid. Our day was quiet, but I’ve been busy since getting our home fluffed for Christmas. Tree is up, but still more to do.
    Happy Holidays!

    Mary, You are truly amazing. Everything you do is so spectacular! I’ll bet everyone at your house feels so special everyday. This is so lovely. You have such a beautiful way of putting everything together to perfection. Thanks for sharing your talents.

    I wish you had a little gift shop for all of us to shop till we drop. And dont forget a cookbook with your recipes.

    Have a wonderful Christmas.⛄️

    Just gorgeous, Mary!! I love red and gold paired at Christmas and your natural bowl centerpiece was exquisite. Being Italian, I grew up on artichokes and they looked lovely in the grouping.
    A feast for the eyes … Always!!

    Oh, Mary…this is beautiful. “Nobody does it better…” than you do! And that silver tray is to die for! I would be so interested in knowing your storage secrets for all your lovely dinnerware, flatware, glassware, linens and accessories! Someday you must let us in on it. Thank you for all your beautiful posts.

    You are lucky to have all the Mikasa beauties to play with, but Mikasa benefits greatly from your creativity.

    Beautiful Christmas table. I agree with Kitty you could use this pattern on other occasions too. Love love all the fresh greenery with fruit and vegetables and gold touches. The plaid cloth and napkins give your table extra pizzazz! Fabulous as usual.

    This table looks as if it were set in an elegant manor….the dinnerware is exquisite for any season and I love that you used such beautiful fresh greens….Love the plaid…oh I just love it all !!!!

    Such pretty dappled lighting adding extra sparkle to your vibrant table. Love the tray~

    I love how you mixed silver with your Parchment Rouge on this holiday table Mary. And you made it all work with the pretty plaid cloth and napkins…I would have never dreamed a silver charger would work with this china, but it looks super fabulous! Of course I had a hard time taking my eyes off of that deep silver tray, full of fresh greens and shiny red apples and magnolia leaves, just stunning!

    Stop it!!!!!!! You have showcased one of my very favorite dish patterns EVER!!! No, I don’t have any of them in my own stash (which just baffles me to no end!), but they snatched me up the very first time I laid eyes on them!!! Oh, my goodness…what eye candy indeed!!! I love it that you bucked the system and went with a mix of silver and gold rather than confining it to the one metal, too. That’s a smart move that really adds visual interest to this table. And the florals….Mary!!! So pretty!

    Now I’m not one to steal, but I’d have to say that I’d be cramming these dishes into my purse and sprinting across the lawn to make my getaway!!!
