What a surprise when I unpacked these "Joyeux Noel" salad plates, which were in storage for three years.
It was like Christmas!
I love the way they go with the tartan dinner plates and linens so much that I decided to use them for two Christmas tablescapes.
First, for last night's Christmas company dinner party...
...and second for Christmas Day dinner with family.
Afterall, I need to get my money's worth!
All $3.99 per plate from Homegoods.
Silver chargers, little trees in silver pots...
...and the centerpiece of red and white flowers in a silver engraved champagne bucket add to the tartan tablescape.
You might remember this tablescape from Christmas 2013, featured in our old dining room.
I think it was one of my favorites.
I'm not going to lie, I miss that dining room!
But it's fun to recreate the same tablescape in our new dining room.
Even though the new dining room is much smaller, it is also more intimate.
The dining table fresh and updated and ready for our first Christmas in our new home!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
