A Tartan Christmas Table Redux

 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.
And cozy!

The dining table fresh and updated and ready for our first Christmas in our new home!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

  1. Delores, your table looks so festive! I remember these cute reindeer plates. They were a great find. Like you, I've been bringing dishes out of the storage unit. It's fun to reconnect with these "friends". My goal for the new year is to get my dish stash all organized on the shelves in our attic. Out of boxes and in plain sight once again.
    Merry, Merry!

  2. Gorgeous...both old and new! Sheila

  3. That must have been a fun moment unpacking those dishes! Looks like you are all set for Christmas with your family. Love the tartan!

  4. Your new dining room is pretty, but you can't beat the coziness of your old dining room. I really miss your breakfast room too with the long bench!

  5. Your new dining room is lovely, but your last one can't be beat for coziness. Don't blame you for missing it, I miss it too!
