Welcome to my contribution to Susan from Between Naps on the Porch and her Tablescape Thursday. Please visit her to see all the beautiful and creative settings. I am sharing the tablescapes I used on my dining room table and smaller casual table for our house tour this past Sunday.

For the back of my dining chairs I chose just a simple gold mesh bow with cherries.

Red tasseled runners spanned across the table.

Santa, sitting atop his reindeer was the focal point. Gold sprays, faux cherries, red votives lined with gold, mat white ornaments, a single large gold candle stick which held a white and gold pillar, and small green trees added a variety of height, texture, and color.

Two square vases held red and llime green sparkle filler and provided real excitement to the setting.

For my place setting I used gold chargers, white china, and flatware edged with gold. Gold mesh bows were tied around the red linen napkins making them look like little gifts waiting to be opened. I elevated them on the cup and saucer.

Santa - HomeGoods

White ornaments - Martha Stewart

Gold sprays and cherries - Michael's

Gold and white candle - HomeGoods

Red linens - HomeGoods

Red and green filler - All About Home

China - Azberg from Germany

Flatware - Wallace

Gold chargers and votives - Target

Now we will move on the our more casual table set just for the two. A black linen cloth covers this table. Can you see Santa peeking from the back of the chair? He looks like he is waiting for a hot breakfast. We have enjoyed these two chair covers for several years.

Red chargers held a large black plate and a smaller holiday scene salad plate.
The flatware has an off-white handle and compliments the soft white in the smaller plate. Two napkins, one red and one off-white, were folded together and tied with a black and white polka-dot ribbon and a red jingle bell. Red goblets were accented with napkin rings.

Since this table is rather small, the final embellishments were a white candle, a glass cylinder filled with the same lime green and red filler like the dining table, and a white bottle brush tree.

Black tablecloth - I have had for several years.

Red chargers - Target

Black plates - Jennifer Farrell, Black from Deals

Accent plate - Royal Stafford from HomeGoods

Flatware - Target

Napkin rings on glasses - HomeGoods

Thank you for stopping by for a short visit. Thanks again to Pat from Back Porch Musings for the photography assistance. She is always ready and willing to help.

Have a Blessed Christmas.

Both tables are beautiful, Charla. I love those black and white, with red accent salad plates! I saw some, on a blog the other day, from Johnson Bros. Black and white with a little red school house. I thought of you, when I saw them. I can't remember the blog, though!

I am awake in the wee small hours, because we are going to the lake today. Just a quick down and back trip. Haven't been since October. Our deck was stained last month, so we need to check that out and just do a general check up.

Merry Christmas!

A double bonus! Not just one table, but two. Both are wonderful.
I love how you used 2 tablerunners to make placemats and your santa on the reindeer is a perfect focal point! Beautiful!
The black and red table is gorgeous. I love the plates! Also it was very creative to use 2 napkins and they were so beautifully presented.
Lovely and festive, both!
Merry Christmas.

So pretty! I love all the lovely details.

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oh how pretty -- both settings. I'm loving the chair backs I'm seeing decorated all across blogland. And I'm falling in love with everyone's Christmas dishes too! But I've already got two sets and some other pieces as well -- so I'll just enjoy from afar.

Ramona said...

Absolutely gorgeous. So elegant and inviting...well done! Your home is beautiful...I can really feel the love and attention you have given to the details.

Merry Christmas!

Hi Charla! What beautiful tablescapes. The black and red is so unusual! Both are just gorgeous! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Happy New Year!...Debbie

Good morning Charla, your tables are beautiful. I especially like your plates from Home Goods. It's probably a good thing we don't have one of those close That Pat is a jewel.. she does a wonderful job of photo shooting your beautiful tables... At least we have sun on this side of the state today. I "had" to get out and do some grocery shopping, winds are starting to pick up and the temps are starting to drop.. it's suppose to get "cold" once again. With the snow we have on the ground it's going to seem even colder.. Stay warm and safe my friend.. hugs ~lynne~

Norma Lee @ Norma Lee Good said...

So very pretty! i like how you used to two table runners. I have seen this on a large rectangular table but it looks really cute on a round one as well! I love the gold mesh ribbon. I find that that ribbon is the easiest to manipulate!

gina said...

Just now got a chance to look at all of this.....just gorgeous!! I loved those plates on the black table!! I need to head to Dillards and see how marked down my Friendly Village/Johnson Bros. is. Knowing me I'm a day late and a dollar short!! Well done, girl! love, gina

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

You are such a blessing.. Happy New Year my friend..hugs ~lynne~

What sweet Christmas dishes! Adorable! The decorations on the chair backs is just so cute! I have just recently noticed how many are decorating the chair backs and I love it. My daughter did it this past summer for a baby shower and for a wedding shower I cute. Yours with the cherries was the cutest yet!
Everything was beautifully done! I love it!
