Christmas Morning Table

 As families change over the years, so have our Christmas 
morning breakfast traditions.
Today I'm sharing a simple Christmas morning
table setting for my daughter and myself.
 Currently we spend a quiet breakfast 
together before traveling to my sister's home to meet up 
with the rest of our extended family.

My table setting is rather subdued colors with the
only punch of color being the red holly berries and red napkins. 
The dinner plate is a soft muted olive green plate by
Nina Campbell with a lovely scroll embellishment
around the edges.  I love this plate because of it's
somewhat oval and oblong shape and I've been
using it frequently since I purchased it this fall.

The salad plate is the softest of yellows with
delicate raised dots along the octagonal edges.

The bowl has a sweet sprig of mistletoe in it's center and is called
"Home for the Holidays" from the Paula Deen At Home collection. 

It's real beauty though is the mistletoe and holly berries
along the sides, which you can hardly see. 

I used red napkins to add color to the table and
tucked a sprig of pine and holly inside the napkin ring
for embellishment.

I made the centerpiece out of various evergreens and holly
cut from my yard with artificial pears nestled in to
compliment the dinner plates.


Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.
for Tablescape Thursday.

This is a simply beautiful setting. I love the pears nestled in among the greenery, they look very real, I was wondering how much time you spent in the produce section picking out the perfect ones. Enjoy!
