Christmas Place Setting Ideas wih Everyday Dishes

Here’s an idea of using your everyday dinnerware collection for a
Christmas table.
 I wanted to show you how many combinations you could come up with
using a few pieces.
 If you are having several guests over and you don’t have a complete matching set for everyone, this is a great way to mix and match, giving it an
eclectic feel.
 The only cohesion I followed was every place setting had a white napkin,
a pine cone, and a rosemary sprig tied with a piece of twine.
 I think your guests will find it all quite a fun combination.
 Better yet, you didn’t have to go buy new holiday dishes.
 All the dinner plates are from Target.
 The salad plates are a mix from Pier One, and Thrifted.
 I also love the look of using bright red flatware.
 I hope this gives you some creative ideas on how to use your everyday dishes this holiday season.
 Have fun with what you have.

  8. Hi Dawn, this is my first visit to your blog. I just love the photo with all the dishes, very clever. And what a great idea! You’re right, no need to go out and get all Christmas themed dishes, when you can make due with what you have. I like the little pine cone and sprig of rosemary. It’s so simple but really all you need to say “Christmas” at your table. So glad to find you!
