Inspiring Christmas Table Setting part 2 and Giveaway Winners

As Christmas is getting closer and we are still searching for idea's on how to decorate our tables I share with you part 2 of Inspiring Christmas Table Settings, I will get to our winners of my giveaway alittle later, so in the mean time...

we begin with a more softer colour palette, white, water blue, pink and silver...



 for a center piece I have used a vintage clear water blue pedestal bowl and just added some silver glass ornaments for interest, a tall blue vase filled with pale pink roses...


 
the vintage clear water blue pedestal bowl can be found at antique stores from time to time, expect to pay up to $70 this one here was $65 glass Christmas ornaments $6 each and the beautiful roses $8...


once again lovely silver cutlery to add balance to the table and complement the Christmas ornaments and napkin rings which cost around $8 for a box of 12...





stunning vintage plates with just a hint of blue lovely little pink roses just sets the scene, a plate like these can set you back $20 to $40 a plate and the platter's on the dresser in the back ground around $60 to $70 but well worth it as they are just beautiful...



the sweet little pink vintage wine glasses with there little bows around the edges are just divine, $25 a set of 6


maybe change the Christmas ornaments for some extra colour perhaps...








 the very muted blue and green vintage water glasses are a set of six... 2 blue, 2 green, and 2 pink, these can be picked for a few dollars at a opp/thrifty store from time to time, but be awhere that you may need to build your set as I did, one or two at a time, I believe they are normally sets of 6 of the one colourway originally...




this time I went for lots of vintage linen layering, the top two are are heavily laced around the edges, would you believe the large one on the bottom is a dust ruffle that is doubled over to give the feeling of luxury...



I have enjoyed doing this setting, love the colorway and how quick and easy it came to mind...

I hope you have enjoyed Inspiring Christmas Table Setting Part 2.

Your setting is so beautiful but I have to say what I loved the most was the un-ironed tablecloth. It looks so welcoming, not intimidating by the beautiful china and crystal. I will have to try that...hey, more saved time..no ironing! Yeah!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.
