Tartan With Red & Green Tablescape

Where does the time go?  The old saying about times flies when we are having fun or the older we get, the faster time goes by.  Goodness!
I have been a busy little bee cooking and baking.  The first Christmas dinner party is Wednesday night. I  made the dessert and finished making caramels.
I decided to show you another traditional Christmas  tablescape in the Breakfast room.

Tartan  chargers set the mood with red and green.  The salad plates are also tartan with my green cabbage  plates.  Red flatware from Horchow.

I used my new green cake stand as a pedestal for the snowman centerpiece.

Plenty of candlelight lights up this room.  I keep the white lights on my ficus trees year round.

A fun cut-out effect from PicMonkey.

Our family room fireplace, all decked  out with greenery and lights.

Stay tuned for the white and gold tablescape in the dining room.  We bought a flocked tree this year.

  1. Good Morning Dear Linda,

    You create such magnificent and beautiful table settings,
    You spare not one detail and the color palettes you choose are so elegant. Have fun dear friend!

  2. Where oh where did you find the salad plates and chargers??? I love tartan.

  3. Beautiful tablescape! I wish I was coming to dinner. I'd love to pull up a chair at that table. There's something about tartan plaid that I love so much.

  4. Well of course these are my favorite holiday colors! Love the dishes and the centerpiece. I lik the black cart with all the candle holders on it. The fireplace looks wonderful- very festive! Look at you all glamorous in your cheetah print outfit!

  5. It all looks gorgeous! And I am loving the new cake stand, such a pretty color!

  6. Hi Linda, Love your plaid tablescape. Everything is gorgeous and the colors just say traditional Christmas. Love the black cart too. Your mantel is beautiful. Your guests will be in a magical land for dinner. Always perfect my friend. Merry Christmas xo

  7. Very cute Linda:) Happy Holidays!
    It's like visiting a new home every tablescape:)

  8. Plaid is really lovely at Christmas time, so your table setting is quite nice.

  9. It is such a gorgeous tablescape, Linda!!! Merry Christmas to you. :)

  10. Quite gorgeous! I need some salad plates, too.

  11. Stunning!!! So soft and pretty, love every element!!! xoxoxo

  12. What a gorgeous table and chandelier, dear Linda! The candle table sure adds a special glow, as does your ficus tree. I have some lights on timers year round because I just love the sparkly glow. Your mantelpiece is so pretty, too. Thanks for the inspiration!

  13. Hello there dearest Linda! Gosh your place is just beautiful. You have the best sets of dishes to bring out for any occasion. ENJOY YOURSELF!

  14. I like seeing tartan at Christmas very much! More people should use it.

  15. Everything looks so beautiful. I'm especially enamored with your snowman cake stand. I've got a big snowman collection and would love to display them in different ways.

  16. Linda, I just love coming over here and getting ideas - you have the most creative ideas ever. The tartan look is so cute for Christmas. I have really been into plaid lately. Your table looks so festive, and that chandelier is very unique. Your fireplace really caught my eye, it's so warm and cozy and lovely.

    I am sending my love to you this Christmas, and I want to thank you for your friendship in blog land.

    love, ~Sheri

  17. Linda, I love the photo of you with your sweet pup on the couch. The tartan is so inviting for Christmas. I'll stop by before Christmas to see your flocked tree. xo

  18. Good Afternoon Linda, It is always a pleasure to visit you, because you create such a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
    I adore your candle holders which look like frosted icing... a tinge of pink at the bottom, graduating to white.... they are fabulous.
    When I lived in Cyprus, we could not buy Christmas trees, so I used to put fairy lights and baubles on my fiscus tree.... there is nothing like a bit of sparkle to bring a smile to my face.
    Have a wonderful Christmas Linda and warmest wishes to you and your family for the New Year.

  19. If you ever tire of your spectacular tartan dishware they would have a happy home with me. Love it all.
    May this week be Merry and Bright for you!

  20. Another beautiful table! Love the centerpiece and aren't those chargers fabulous!? I am assuming they are the ones from Michaels? SO glad I got them too!! MERRY Christmas and a BIG thank you for all you have done for me and my blog!!!! XO

  21. I love this, Linda! Tartan and plaid are always classics during the holidays and I absolutely think that your table settings are top notch! Love!!

    Merry Christmas, my friend!
