Buffalo Plaid Christmas Tablescape

Welcome friends to another tablescape blog hop.  This hop is all about Christmas. Many thanks to Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate for organizing yet another fabulous tablescape blog hop. We hope you get inspired.  The links are listed at the bottom of this post. 

As some of you know I love bling, but this year I am posting a lovely Plaid table.  Buffalo Plaid with red, black and white.  My bling is in the chandelier, in which I have decked out with crystal snowflakes and those fab led lights.

I have even dressed my reindeer in plaid to coordinate with the table. The plaid containers hold my homemade caramels.  A treat for my guests.  Dec. 12th I  am hosting our Clogger's luncheon. 

I am using my red pintuck tablecloth with three Buffalo Plaid runners along wit the stag runner going down the center of the  table.  Bright red chargers hold the plate stack which consisted of Mackenzie's Child's Courtly Check, A lovely black and white harlequin plate from Wegmans and then the sweet little red reindeer.  Notice the cute little flatware holders?

The golden deer I have had for years from our local Pottery World.

I even dressed the glass doors in the dining room with small wreaths. The gift bags hold some warm fuzzy gloves for the ladies and a few other treats. I ordered these stickers online for the gift bags.

My darling plaid Santa.
 A little Christmas scene.

I created a video to show you the whole room.

 There we have it.  I hope you have enjoyed my Christmas table.  Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to stop by each blog listed below to be inspired.

Thanks for including the video too, love seeing your tree! As always it’s a treat to join you at the table and blog hop with you. Wishing you a very Merry December. ♥

  3. Wow! Wow! Wow! You NEVER disappoint us! The combination of elegant glitz and buffalo check rustic is one of my favorite decors. You know how to get that perfect balance Linda. You are the Queen of Decor! Wishing you a fun Christmas season!!
    Blessings, Edie Marie

  4. I love how you mixed the two plaids. I have my home decorated it the red and black buffalo plaid. I like the little cabin vibe it gives. If I had my choice, I like the black and white better but It was hard to find when I was looking.
    Yours looks beautiful!

  5. Linda, what a beautiful and festive table. The red pintuck cloth is the perfect background for the buffalo plaid runners and the stag center runner. Courtly check, harlequin, and reindeer plates add beautiful pattern to the table, love the flatware holder. I so enjoyed the video taking in your tree and vignettes. And, please pass me a caramel! It is always fun blog hopping with you. Wishing you a most joyous Christmas season!

  6. Oh Linda, so fabulous!! So many wonderful buffalo check details! The reindeer dressed in their white fur collars and plaid blankets are adorable! Talk about mad for plaid, you have outdone yourself girl! The chandy is amazing! No lack of bling here, it's all fantastic! Down to the last details, the gift bags and the wonderful plaid Santa...I hope you have a very MERRY holiday!

  7. Your entire room is amazing! I'm loving every detail and there are lots of them!
    Your plate stack is especially eye-catching with all the patterns and shapes!
    Those gorgeous candelabra are stunning as is the chandelier! I love how you layered buffalo check runners across the table and used an additional different runner down the center. Black goblets with red napkins are so elegant and the flatware holders are so cute!
    Have a great luncheon with your Clogger group! I know they love coming to your house!

  8. I'm such a sucker for buffalo check! Your table is so stunning! Lucky people that get to eat there and enjoy all of your good food! Enjoy the holidays!

  9. What an incredibly festive table - love it! All the red and black buffalo check is gorgeous and I love how you styled your chandelier. So great to hop with you!

  10. I love buffalo plaid! Beautiful!

  11. I am in love with everything about this table setting! OH MY! Loving those beautiful deer! I am a huge fan of red and black and this really caught my eye. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  12. Just gorgeous, Linda! You always know exactly what special little touches to add to make something spectacular!

  13. Oh my goodness, Linda, how do you do it all??!! The whole room is just gorgeous! Your chandelier is what immediately caught my eye, and then every detail on the table, from the tablecloth to the centerpiece is fabulous. Your tree in the corner is spectacular. I wish I was a guest at your table.

  14. Linda, what a lovely video. I got to appreciate your entire room, including your gorgeous tree. I am totally amazed, especially how you included such beautiful snowflake lights to your chandelier. It immediately makes a huge statement and with the buffalo check pattern, it states "cozy winter wonderland". I love all of the reindeer details in your runner, napkins, plates and cutely dressed reindeer centerpieces. (They look so warm and cozy too.) A table that would make anyone feel at home and warmly welcomed. Have a great holiday season.

  15. Oh Linda I am adoring it all!!!! I love how you got all the plaids to come together so beautifully. Of course my favorite in this beautiful dining room is the snowflakes hanging from the chandelier. Just gorgeous. Love it all.

    1. Thanks Kris, I love adding the crystal snowflakes to our chandy. A girl has to have her bling. Happy holidays. Hugs

  16. Linda, I love how you mix bling with sporty, and even though you say all the bling is in the chandelier, how could we miss those glammed up deer on the table in their fur stoles?! So cute! I love a woodland theme, and I love how you've mixed it like this. And when you say Cloggers luncheon, do you mean you're in a dance group? If so, I didn't know that! Love that Wegman's plate with smaller salad and the MKC and your red chargers! Well done, now please pass the caramels! ;)

  17. Wow! What a beautiful table you have created with red and buffalo plaid accents! Have a beautiful Christmas season! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  18. Very cute! Love your table with the buffalo plaids! The dish stack is fantastic and I love the Christmas scene. Your friends are going to really enjoy this table! Those caramels sound scrumptious!

  19. You have done it again, Linda - set another show stopper!! The whole room is just a sensory delight!!! Love love love the snowflakes!!! You have taken buffalo check to a whole different level!!! Fabulous!! I hope you have a joyous Christmas season!

  20. Hi Linda, Oh Wow! This is looks stunning and beautiful. You did a great job decorating the dining room. I LOVE every detail and the plaid and reindeer theme is just awesome. I know your group will love it too and have a great time. Enjoy your holiday get together. Julie

  21. Plaid,plaid and more plaid, I love it!! In addition to the plaid I see more of my favorite things. A blinged out chandeleir, reindeer dressed in fur and plaid, MacKenzie Child plates and that beautiful pintuck tablecloth. Your guests at the Cloggers luncheon will surely eat with their eyes first. Your table and surrounding areas are stunning and it's been a pleasure to hop with you. Merry Christmas!

  22. Oh, all that red...you know you're singing my song, Linda! Gorgeous!

  23. Linda, this is charming. I'm a plaid girl, so you know I'm smiling. What a fun, welcoming table for your friends. Love the wreaths on the doors and the extra touches of fun detais on your table. Happy Holidays!

  24. Linda, you never cease to amaze me. This tablescape is beautiful.
    Merry Christmas.

  25. Oh wow the video really showed it in a way that stills can’t. Everything is beautiful and I love the tree in there. I have the buffalo plaid up at the cabin for Christmas. It is so festive.

  26. Linda, dressing up the deer is such a cute idea. Love all the plaid. The wreaths on the cabinet doors brings up the eyes to the pretty contents. All the dishes are a great contrast to the bling in the chandelier.

  27. Makes me want to move to CA and become a clogger...lol....what a "holiday spirit filled room"....you certainly know how to entertain your friends!! Have a great holiday!!

  28. Oh wow Linda, I'm in awe of your decorating and scape! I love everything here, the plaid, checks and bling. I do love sparkle. Love how you decorated the chandy and cabinet. I think the red cloth is stunning with the pop of black. Anytime you offer design classes I'm first to sign up! Stunning!!!!! Happy December Linda..........

  29. Linda,

    This beautiful and I just love the deer. Your chandelier looks magical.


  30. Linda, how clever and cute of you to dress up your gold reindeers to coordinate with the buffalo check table! And, how gorgeous you look in the sidebar! Is that something you just pulled from your closet Ms. Claus?! What a grand party your guests are gonna have! Merry Christmas!
