Villeroy & Boch and Plaid Christmas Table

I hope you are all having an enjoyable Christmas season. I feel so bad for the people who were killed in Paris and in San Bernardino, CA. and the families they left behind. Let's all pray for them and for world peace!
This Christmas tablescape is staged and I have to take it down soon so I can set up for a buffet for our party on Saturday. But before I take it down, I might as well blog about it. I missed blogging and tablescaping and visiting all of you. We went to Natchez for almost a month to clean and organize and do more packing there. I have canceled the internet and cable when we left there last May so I could not blog. 
 
We rented a trailer and brought a few furniture and a lot of my dinnerware and Lladro collection.
I finally got that oil painting from Natchez during our trip a few days ago.
Here is a close up. I love how the bucket was painted. It looks so real.
The plaid plate charger is from William Sonoma.
The dinner plates are made by Villeroy & Boch. Pattern is French Garden "Noel"
I love the salad plates, also from Villeroy & Boch "Toy's Delight". I really like the shape.

I had to mix my goblets because I could not find a complete set. I am still organizing the garage and so much more work now because we just brought more stuff from Natchez. The crystal wine stems  are all the same though.
Even the flatware have sort of a plaid handles in gold and silver.
Burlap reindeer napkin rings from either Joss & Main or Zullily.


Snowman and Santa S&P shakers.
I used a plaid tablecloth and with satin quilted plain red with green edging placemats. They are reversible to green with red edging.

Cardinals S&P shakers. They are actually made by Pfaltzgraff.


I love these candle holders bought from Old Time Pottery a few years ago.

So much to do! After unloading the trailer and returning it. I started decorating for Christmas. I put up the tree and the Christmas Village. Tomorrow I will start baking in preparation for our party.

Your table is so festive! I love the traditional red and green so I enjoy seeing this. Those V & B dishes are so cute and they look good with the W S tartan plates. Sounds like you're going to be kept busy with the continuing unpacking and sorting. Merry Christmas to you too!

You've been busy my friend, as I have. I love all your C'mas dishes and chargers, it makes a wonderful C'mas festivity at it's best. I love your new house too; every time I see a new post it looks more and more like you and your great touches.
I'm just going to share a C'mas post, so far I've been so late and busy. We're going to DD Sofie for the holidays and so I'm baking away for the girls.
Hugs,
FABBY
