Christmas Eve Tablescape

I am excited to host my husband’s family for Christmas Eve this year, and I’ve been planning ahead for the meal and table settings this week. Planning ahead helps me control what I can control. I saw my turquoise napkins in a drawer the other day, and it inspired me for my Christmas Eve table setting. I did a “dry run” this week and it turned out pretty nicely. 

I want to keep the table setting simple, elegant and in line with the rest of my Christmas decor in the house. I am using red, turquoise and silver this year and I have plenty of dishes and linens to work with that color scheme. Here’s what I put together: Christmas Eve Tablescape Come Home For ComfortThe tablecloth is a very Christmasy red with a paisley design. Turquoise chargers are underneath my set of mismatched white dinner plates. I attached silver ornaments to silver pipe cleaners and created festive napkin rings. I haven’t decided yet which napkin fold I’ll use. Leave me a comment if you have a favorite!

I want the centerpiece to be striking, but to also leave room on the table for dishes and conversation. I love decorating with ornaments, can you tell? 🙂
