Set the Table - Merry Jingle Bells




There is something about a Red and White table at Christmas that looks so clean and bright.

These two colours make each other sing.





White charger, Red dinner plate, White salad plate on a foundation of White with Red stripes tea towelling for table runners.




Red & White script napkins doubled up with White pompom napkins.

Holding both napkins together, a red jingle bell napkin ring.




On each plate, an oversized Red jingle bell and red-handled flatware stand at the ready.








Place settings are accompanied by a Santa cup, each one with a different facial expression.




A string of red wooden beads meanders down the centre of the table.










The centrepiece was easy.  A very old white Ironstone bowl was filled with fresh clippings from evergreen trees, frosted pinecones, and red Christmas ornaments.




White candlesticks hold white candles that are wrapped in red and white striped ribbon.

  1. This is so pretty and such a coincidence. Just this morning I started pulling the pieces for my next tablescape. The colors are red/white/gold and I'm including the ceramic Santa Mugs my mother made over 50 years ago. Thank you for the additional inspiration.

    1. I am always amazed at how we bloggers can take basically the same elements and each come up with unique tables. I am looking forward to seeing yours. Thank you, Sandra.

  2. I love this in every single way I could possibly love a post. I love the colors, the cheer, the mugs, the bells, the centerpiece and the plain, down-to-earth joy of it all. May I come for dinner, please?!

  4. I liked how cohesive you made your table. Casually elegant with disparate elements. A few tweaks and this would be cozy in January!
    I find Santa mugs difficult to design with, but these are perfect. Loved the touches of ribbon.

    1. A two-colour scheme has challenges as it is too easy to throw in another colour, but, sometimes it is better to just keep things simple.
