Christmas Table Setting for 2020

It’s the week of Christmas and I thought I would share my Christmas table for the year.

I made a few improvements since last year and I’m excited to share.

The Table and Chairs

First thought I would start with the table and chairs.

I mentioned in a previous post about my dining room all about my new table and chairs. The table seats up to 12 which is great.

I added little wreaths to the back of all the chairs for a little Christmas flair. I talked about that in my Christmas décor plan post.

Christmas Table Centerpieces

For the centerpiece I really wanted some real greenery.

I bought two of these 8′ garlands from Trader Joe’s and bought one thing of baby’s breath and added it to the garland.

I then added four candles, two red ones from Dollar Tree and these beautiful gold ones from Joann.

The Place Settings

Now here is a little bit more about the place settings themselves.

Plates

I’ve spoken many times about these beautiful Noritake Holly plates.

I found mine on Facebook Marketplace last year and found even more on Poshmark so that I could have 12 place settings. It is gorgeous and I love the pinecone and candle designs.

I wrote a post about best tips for finding affordable vintage China

Chargers

This year I also got these beautiful clear glass chargers with the gold rim.

They go with anything and don’t take away from the plates which I like.

Flatware

I got this flatware set from Walmart last year. It looks like it is currently out of stock but I found this other set for a similar price as well.

Napkins

Earlier this summer I found these gorgeous napkins. They are Waterford napkins I bought on eBay and they are scalloped with an embroidered holly design.

Water Glasses

These glasses have a fun story.

Nearly a year to the day later, the lady who sold me the Noritake china messaged me and said she found some matching glasses. I think it is so sweet she messaged me first instead of just posting them to Facebook Marketplace. I gladly purchased them.

They are Libbey brand and the gold rim matches so perfectly.

Wine Glasses

These wine glasses are everything to me.

They are not only gorgeous and gold rimmed, but they belonged to my great grandmother and now they’re mine.

They are in the style Hanover Gold by Marquis by Waterford. You can still find them on places like eBay or Replacements.

Not a whole lot has changed since last year but important ones!

As you can see there aren’t that many differences, but the centerpieces, new napkins, and chargers make a big differnce.

The new table, chairs and newly redone china cabinet certainly help too!

    […] These chargers are my go to for any formal dinner at our home. They are super sturdy and nice looking, and best of all they go with every table I have planned. I love them and bought three sets for 12 total chargers. You can see them in action here at our Christmas table. […]
