Inspiring Christmas Table Setting and Giveaway

With Christmas spirit in the air, children making there Christmas wish lists, and while we all begin to think of decorating our homes, I thought I'd share a few Christmas table settings with you for the next few weeks, just some simple and beautiful idea's that have been running around in my head...

so we begin with a Traditional colour pallet, white, green, red and gold.
  

 white vintage linens layered, here I have used 2 white vintage table cloths $5 each the vintage napkins were 20c each, with the top being a vintage poinsettia Christmas cloth that was picked up at a opp/thrifty store for 50c ...  



the center piece I have used a vintage rose hankie basket from an antique booth $25, large enough to fit a small gold candelabra inside, some of you maybe lucky enough to have a holly tree growing in your garden as I do, I've taken a few branches and just popped them inside and around, just added a few vintage tins, that could hold some treats for the guests


nothing is more beautiful then vintage cutlery, ok it is alittle unorthodox having silver and gold on the same table setting, but finding gold cutlery is alittle hard...don't you think, and I'm sure your guests will think the table looks beautiful way...



I have used some of my own gift tags here for place cards adding alittle personal touch, left in the bags so no glitter falls on the plates, just a simple handmade gift for them to take away with them...



Vintage glass ware is so stunning, I think it adds warmth to the table, you can find them in opp/thrifty shops for a few dollars a set of six...



A simple faux apple cake made by a dear friend Natasha is aways handy to have, the cake and the friendship that is, but I think the cake sets the Christmas table off, a beautiful touch I think...



whats also nice to use is some simple white ceramic roses napkin rings and dotted a few Christmas baubles around the table too... 


now for the fun part I have decided to have alittle giveaway too...
the giveaway is for 4 of my gift tag packs, 2 will be given away here on my blog and the other 2 will be on my facebook
