I’m in a Plaid Tidings state of mind and Merry Motoring this week with a little Christmas tablescape blog hop fun!
I hung all the Santamobiles back on the tree from the Santa parade on the table and stopped in Ho-Ho-HomeGoods this week.
And I found this adorable Christmas truck salt and pepper shaker set. . .
Ready to sprinkle tidings of joy along with salt and pepper at the table.
This shiny aluminum truck was parked there too, winking and twinkling at me under the store lights.
I loaded up the truck bed with fresh greenery, shiny red ornaments, candy canes and tied it with a tartan bow for a centerpiece for the table.
Tartan napkins are folded into a Christmas tree shape placed on the center of the plate. Plaid Tidings gift tags and candy canes add a festive and seasonal touch to the tartan plates.
You can find a tutorial for how to make this Christmas tree napkin fold at Between Naps on the Porch. Susan used two napkins, a solid and a plaid which resulted in oh so cute contrasting design when she was done!
A 20-inch square napkin works best along with a fabric that has some body to it. My tartan napkins were a little soft, and a stiffer fabric would give you a crisper fold. Press your napkins with an iron first for best results.
Keep on truckin’ over to see my fellow tablescapers and find more Christmas table inspiration this week.
