Christmas morn is a wonderful time to gather your family close and set a lovely table.
This could easily be a dinner table for a small group.
In fact, I’ll be using this table as the Cousins Table for our Christmas Eve celebration. They’re too old for it to be called the Children’s Table and they seem to enjoy the tradition of having their own table, so now it will be the Cousins Table.
The pale green tinge of this sherbet beckons Christmas.
While wondrous reds and greens sing the blessings of Christmas.
Place cards help welcome each one…
…and make them feel a little more special. A place was set just for them.
A touch of jingle bells heralds the season.
Didn’t want you to miss the wonderful contrasting border (tablecloth by Tag).
Small candies echo the colors of the season.
Just a touch of warmth is added by a candle flickering in the deep emerald green mercury glass hurricanes.
It amazes me how a flower of nature can bear such a brilliant color.
Hope you can find a few moments to set a special table for your family.
Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen is hosting a challenge and wants to know where your inspiration came from. My inspiration was from Marimekko. I do not have a Marimekko Christmas cloth but wanted to design a Christmas table with that vibrancy and impact of Marimekko.
