Christmas Table Clad in Plaid

The Corner of Plaid and Paisley presents Christmas Clad in Plaid!
I mixed several different plaids on this Christmas Tablescape.
As in the title of my blog, I am a lover of all things plaid!
So I hope this is not a plaid overload for you.
Just in case it was, I built a virtual tree lot down the middle of the table to break some of it up!
A simple red package all tied up with a big plaid bow and a sprig of greenery tops each place setting.
I was pleasantly surprised when I found this ribbon in my stash of Christmas stuff from several years ago.  Thankfully I had enough to embellish all six packages!
With all the plaids I thought it was best too keep a few things simple, like the napkin rings and the wine glasses.
The placemats and napkins are Winter Tartan, Williamsburg pattern by Park Designs.
The greenery placemat, white chargers, plaid plates and mugs are all from Pier1.
I bought the chargers several years ago, but I am pretty sure they still have them.  The greenery placemats were purchased in the middle of the summer when they had a sale going on. I had received a gift card for my birthday and saved it for something special -  when I saw these plaid dishes, I knew it was time to use the gift card.
Since it just snowed several inches, we have a beautiful white blanket covering everything and it is really beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  
I hope your Christmas preparations are going well.
Thanks for stopping by!

My mother was a fabulously talented sewer and I inherited her love for fabric. In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name. I am also a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

  2. Fantastic! Love all the different plaids and you've coordinated them wonderfully. The tree lot as a centerpiece is perfect with its natural tones of evergreens and wood. You did a great job spending your birthday gift card - what could be better for a tablescape lover! Happy Holidays!
