Tablesettings Two Ways

It’s Christmas Eve and soon everyone will be gathered around their tables enjoying a wonderful meal with family and friends. There may be a lot of work left to complete in the kitchen, but don’t forget to set the table! See below for two easy and festive table settings!

For my first look, I wanted a classic holiday feel with accents of gold and silver. I used these paper placemats with gold dots as a base and then layered a white plate on a silver charger. Then, I tied a plaid ribbon around a simple white napkin for a pop of color. Be sure to use ribbon with wired edges – this will help you get the perfect bow every time! I finished off the place setting with a glass of Ruby Red vodka and club soda from this Naughty and Nice glass set (similar here).



Quite different from the traditional setting above, but equally as festive, I wanted this table setting to play up the pink and gold winter napkins I found while shopping at World Market. To start, cover your table with a long roll of white paper. Then set your placemat, plate, silverware and glassware at each seat. Use a simple strand of twine to tie up the napkins and to finish, use a gold sharpie or paint pen to write each guest’s name at the top of the setting.
