VB "Toys Delight" Plates, Plaid and McKenzie Childs Accessories, First Christmas, 2016 Table

After I finished decorating the house for Christmas, I thought it wasn't complete without a holiday tablescape so here is my first one for the year.
 I started with a Mac Kenzie Childs table runner.
 I already had this centerpiece so I thought I would use it. And since the runner has plaid in it, I decided to use my plaid plate chargers from Williams Sonoma.

 Plaid dinner plates and topped with Villeroy & Boch's Toy's Delight salad plates. I have V & B's matching dinner plates too but I like to mix and match so I did not use them this time.



 I love this crystal stemware I bought from TJ Maxx a long, long time ago.

 I love the ruffled edges of the salad plates.


The red flatware set was an inexpensive buy from Target from way back.
 I think the little people in front of the church are so cute.
 I just bought this little bonnet S & P shaker from a church Christmas bazaar while I was in Illinois a few weeks ago. It was so cheap. I think I paid either 50 or 75 cents.
 

 The napkin rings are MacKenzie Childs. Can you read the little brass tags? I bought them on sale after Christmas last year.
 I just found these reindeers after opening a box that was just moved from Natchez.
 and so with these "JOY" angels holding tapered candles. behind them is one of my favorite Lladro figures, the lady with a jug (not really sure if that is the official name).

I love the MC runner Chris, it's perfect for setting your gorgeous dishes and the stock is simply fabulous; therefore, your table for C'mas is awesome !!
I hope you get a chance to visit my reveal of the guest rooms Part I... although I need to hang some artwork and an antique mirror from my Mil. I just posted the bathroom and walking closet as part I too.
I bet you're all ready for the Holidays with your little neighbors, lol..

I've been hesitant to use a variety of plaids, but the ones you chose work well in combination. The napkin rings are such fun!

What a festive table, Christine! I've always been a fan of Spode's Christmas Tree Design. I have the teapot and would love to own the teacups and saucers.

Jacqueline said...

Oh I drooled over those ruffled plates at the store last year! They are just stunning. You always have the most beautiful plates. What a fun table, and yes, it seems that the time just flew this year!

I'm playing catch up. The table is just beautiful as usual.

ooo, everything looks fantastic...i've wondered how many plate sets you have..a bunch..lol...i have the same red Target flatware..and love it. They can't go in the dishwasher, tho, or the silver turns brassy....I had to buy another set last year..

Oh Christine...I've missed seeing all your lovely treasures!!! (been kinda down in the dumps since Ern died). I love this profusion of plaid & I covet those beautiful crystal stems! I own that same red handled flatware from Target...it looks great with all your pretties!
I especially LOVE that Spode teapot!!!!! I have some Spode but not that. I think I have to go shopping!

Hoping you have a wonderfully Happy & Healthy Holiday Season! Merry Christmas!!!
