Easy 10-minute centerpiece details:

I started with some greenery clipped from the trees and shrubs. . .

boxwood, Leyland cypress, cedar and magnolia leaves.

Greenery was placed down the center of the table with two vases and a glass compote,

filled with peppermints, candy canes, red ornaments and sprigs of greenery.

Red mercury glass votives add some sparkle and soft glow,

along with larger striped and checked votive holders,

circled with a faux peppermint candle ring to flank both ends of the table.

More red Christmas ornaments and peppermints were sprinkled

down the length of the table among the greenery.

    Good morning, Mary! ‘Tis the season for your plaid and peppermint table, I love the traditional colors. Red and green are the ideal combo for Christmas. The merry plaids and cheery checks are the perfect patterns to frame your plate stack. The appetizer plates are so cute. The natural greens runner topped with candy canes, peppermint, and red ornaments is a great idea, simple and easy, just the way I like it. The addition of sparkle and bling always works, love the napkin rings and beaded placemats. I don’t remember seeing the beautiful flatware, it is beautiful.

    It is always a pleasure to join you at the table and take in all the eye candy. Merry Tuesday!

    Merry Christmas Mary and what a perfect way to display this Holiday time than with your peppermint and plaid table setting. Ahhhh…Tis the season for sure as you depict what most of us remember from our childhood all front and center. The red and white peppermint sticks are sweet memories for me as Mother would decorate our tree with the little candy canes which were meant for sampling in the days leading up to the big day. When I grew up, I tried to carry on that tradition but since I have color specific trees, I have had to search out the white, blue or green or pink peppermint canes. I have to agree with Pam…the flatware is new to me and so beautiful and fitting. I love the simplicity of the centerpiece of greens and ornaments running down your table, so reminiscent of past Christmases. It is always inspirational joining you on these hops as you never disappoint. Happy Holidays!

    Happy Holidays, Mary! Your festive table setting is a great way to embrace the season. The traditional colors of red, green, gold and silver promise delightful things to come. The peppermint candy runner works well with the china welcoming all the traditions of the season. Love the Wallace flatware. Always a pleasure to join you. Have a wonderful holiday!

    Your table is so cheery, and I especially like your bread and butter dishes – adorable. But what really caught my eye was the flatware, so unique! All the red and white candy canes and decor in your centerpiece make me feel good!! I would enjoy being a guest here! Enjoy the hoilday season!

  7. December 6, 2022 at 7:59 am

    Very cute but sadly I want to eat it!n

  8. December 6, 2022 at 8:07 am

    Oh my, another beautiful table, Mary, and with an easy centerpiece! I love the dish stack and on those sparkly placemats. The flatware is so pretty in silver and gold. You’re blog is better than any book or magazine!

  9. December 6, 2022 at 8:58 am

    Tis the season for peppermints and candy canes! Your centerpiece is delightful Mary, candy canes, ornaments, greens, a compote and viola, delightful centerpiece! I love the magnolia leaves for your runner base, so pretty! Your “jolly” plates are so cute and I love the candy cane napkin rings. Your mix of plaids is fearless and fabulous, and a great contrast to the sparkly placemats. It’s hard not to smile at each and every happy photo, it’s all wonderfully fun!

    Mary, a delight for the eyes. The peppermint centerpiece is so fun and cheerful. Difficult to not eat the candy. Your merry plaid and cheery checks are lovely. I adore the darling “ tis the season” appetizer plates. The napkin rings are so perfect with this table. I have admired them on previous tables. I love the overhead shot of your holiday table. Your tables belong in a book. A pleasure joining you on this Christmas blog hop.

  13. December 6, 2022 at 9:26 am

    Mary! You know I am loving all the plaid!! ❤️ Your candy cane centerpiece is divine! You have a special gift for arranging items in the most artistic way!! Love the different striped napkins against the plaid – you mix patterns so beautifully as well! Love it all!! I hope you have a joyous Christmas season 🕊

  14. December 6, 2022 at 9:59 am

    Mary, you speak to my heart when you create a tablescape with plaid. There is something so heart-warming about the red and green plaids and the use of greenery as a runner. Not to mention peppermint candy canes and candies. They certainly bring out the holiday celebratory spirit in me. You would never know that this lovely table centerpiece was done in 10 minutes. Your tables always look like you spent days to design them into such perfection and beauty. Your candy cane napkin rings are such a charming detail and your mixture of patterns throughout the table with your candleholders and ornaments. Such a very lovely and inviting table. Merry Christmas Mary!

    Mary, I love your table! It’s so colorful and your salad plates are adorable! Your beaded chargers are so pretty too. Your napkin selection and tablecloth are lovely. No one can set a table like you do. It’s professionally coordinated and the stores could take a few lessons from you! My husband would eat the centerpiece which would be fun as you could see it dwindling down day by day! He’s a big fan of peppermint. Enjoy your day. Clara ❤️

    Can someone identify the reindeer plates shown in the thumbnail for the blog hop, please? Thank you.
    My favorite Christmas decorating theme always includes plaid. I don’t know why it resonates with me as it was never a pattern used in my childhood, but I love it.

  17. December 6, 2022 at 1:12 pm

    Mary, what a festive feast for the eyes! I love your table length centerpiece with the creative styling and mix of greenery, candles, red and white ornaments, and peppermint candies — beautifully set on the plaid cloth. Such a fun plate stack, especially the car carrying the Christmas tree. And, I’ve always loved your red stemware. It’s so dramatic and perfect for the setting. The overall effect is like a Christmas carol evoking the spirit of the season.

    How cute! My favorite things are the candy cane bouquets on your table runner. I love your theme, especially the plaid! I love all things plaid, and I also love your pate stacks with the plaid deer plates. Your tablescapes always make me smile, Mary, and I hope that you have a very Merry Christmas!

    Mary, tis the season for sure! Your charming traditional red and green table makes me think of my childhood Christmas celebrations. They were simple as things in the 50s were, but peppermint candy canes were always a big part of it. I love your table details with a generous dose of plaid, the quick and darling peppermint centerpiece, and those stunning beaded napkin rings. They add just the right amount of sparkle. Thank you for sharing this joy! Happy Holidays!

  21. December 6, 2022 at 3:14 pm

    Sorry, Mary….I meant to comment on the cute car/tree plates, but I had Rita’s button on the brain!

  22. December 6, 2022 at 3:22 pm

    So very festive with the plaids and candy canes. I had that same design of the car with the tree on top on a set of mugs in a tablescape a while back. I did the table, photographed it for a blog hop, then put the mugs in a basket for a silent auction at our MINI car club. They just looked like MINIs to me.

    Oh Mary, I don’t think you should even say that centerpiece just takes 10 minutes! It is too beautiful to just take 10 minutes, even if I know that is all it took you! Your combination of plaid and peppermint is spot on! I love both the red and white peppermint patterns and the plaids you have used, but I never would have thought of using them together and yet, they complement each other so well as proven by your beautiful tablescape! The centerpiece is one I think I could show my granddaughter how to put together! I really love the combination of plaids that you used for your napkins, too! A visit to Home is Where the Boat Is…is always a pleasure and a feast for the eyes! Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you and your family!

  26. December 6, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    ‘Tis definitely the season! For color, sparkle and time spent at your wonderful table! It’s hard to decide which part I love the most, but I would probably start with the base layer of plaid linens and central table arrangement. Their pairing is lively and fun. The place settings are complex but casual, with interesting details to capture imagination. The overall effect is — just wow!

  27. December 7, 2022 at 8:16 am

    Absolutely delightful!! I am a sucker for the traditional colors of Christmas so this tablescape really tugged at my heart strings!! Loved it! Thanks for sharing!!

  28. December 7, 2022 at 8:31 am

    Mary, your tablescape is a delight to the senses! I literally imagined the scent of peppermint candy canes as I was reading. I love how you have mismatched the patterns and prints. It makes the table feel so festive and fun! The centerpieces of candy canes, Christmas bobbles and greens is so, so fun! I might just copy that idea for our Christmas Eve brunch buffet table!! Your plate stack is perfection! What a lovely, whimsical nod to the holidays! A very happy Christmas to you!

    What a happy mix of reds, white and greens on your table, Mary! I love the playful mix of the napkins with candy cane rings, and your always clever centerpieces. You can make the simplest things look simply stunning. That flatware is really sharp too. I am always amazed at your seemingly endless combinations of plate stacks, each and every one so good-looking. Thank you for delivering creative inspiration like no other, year after year. It’s a privilege to hop with you.Happy (and Healthy!) Holidays.
