This year my Christmas table setting is simple and combines rustic with refined. There is china and crystal paired with burlap and reclaimed wood. It most likely isn’t for everyone, but I like to use what I already have and this is what I came up with. I used the red balls and felt stars from last year’s stairway garland to dress up the chandelier.
The centerpiece is a combination of my Painted Fox reclaimed wood trays, more red balls, pine cones and a pitcher of fresh cedar.
The china was given to me by my husband over many Christmases. It took me years to get a full set but it was worth the wait. I remember the first Christmas I finally had enough place settings to actually use it. A good memory for sure.
I am starting a little series called “Sunday Supper.” Mostly comfort food recipes for the winter months that are easy but hearty. I’ll be back on Sunday with an old recipe for Potato Soup. It has a secret ingredient that gives it amazing flavor. See you then…
