‘Tis the Season to deck the halls, as well as the table and I’m joining a group of bloggers for a Christmas Tablescape Blog Hop!
Look for the links at the bottom of this post for more holiday and Christmas table inspiration this week through Friday, December 8th.
I’m mad for plaid anytime of year, but especially at Christmas with the holiday cheer it brings to the table! A Gretchen Tartan Plaid tablecloth and napkins by Ralph Lauren motored home with me from HomeGoods back in October.
Santa travels by car rather than sleigh to our house, and we have an assortment of Santamobile ornaments collected over the years that hang on the tree.
They motored to the table to pair with tartan for a Christmas tablescape and a little whimsy.
Tartan plaid plates are layered on a red beaded placemats to add a little sparkle for the holiday season. . .
Pairing with the glittery and sparkling details of the Christopher Radko Santamobile ornaments.
A Fitz and Floyd Santa Car Cookie Jar leads the parade down the table for a centerpiece.
The Santamobile cookie jar is from my retail days and was purchased wholesale 15+ years ago. I looked on eBay to see if I could date it and whoa . . .what a price tag it has now, Santa won’t be serving cookies from it anymore!
Car ornaments are piled with packages motoring down the center of the table. . .
And some are hauling the Christmas tree home with a trunk loaded down with packages.
And some look as festive from the back as they do the front . . . I ❤️🌲
I alternated two different tartan plaid pattern napkins for the table. . . the more plaid the merrier!
In lieu of napkin rings, napkins are tied with gold cord and a mini plaid ornament found at Hobby Lobby this season.
Greenery clipped from the trees and shrubs create an easy evergreen runner. . .Leyland cypress, boxwood and magnolia leaves, running down the center of the table.
Gold cord and red mercury glass votives add a little holiday glow to the ornaments tucked in down the length of the table on either side of the Santamobile cookie jar.
