Welcome to my home for Christmas Eve.....
I set this table with a set of dishes I found at the Thrift store still in the box. Staffordshire Engravings Yuletide pattern in red. So pretty and festive, $20 for a place setting for four.
The red color on the plates is a pinkish shade and so I've used deep red/burgundy color for the place mats and centerpiece.
The gold and deep red pop on the table.
I found three of these wine glasses at a Antique Mall for $8! I will find that 4th glass I'm sure of it, meanwhile they go perfectly with this table.
The gold mesh ornaments were also found at a thrift shop and the dark berry ornaments are from Big Lots on sale!
The silverware was a wedding gift to my parents over 50 years ago. My Mom has passed it on to me and I treasure it.
This little dish was also found at the Antique Mall, love the shape and color.
I keep thinking something is missing from this tablescape, but can't put my finger on it. So any ideas will be appreciated. Maybe a white tablecloth over the table would help? Meanwhile I will use this tonight and then tomorrow set my table for Christmas Day.
I do love these colors and the shine of the gold ornaments and beads.
Have a great Christmas Eve!
