Pewter and Plaid Christmas Tablescape...with a Fun Christmas Tree Napkin Fold!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas TablescapeI am continuing my classic Christmas theme this year in the dining room with my pewter and plaid tablescape…two of my favorite elements that just say it’s holiday time to me! I have to admit that I love red and green for Christmas…and add some rustic touches of texture and the patina of old pewter and I am in!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas Tablescape Put them all together and here’s my Christmas tablscape this year…simple, rustic and classic!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas TablescapeI started with a tartan tablecloth layered with my ruffled burlap table runner. Then I added a garland down the center and popped in my favorite pewter candlesticks and a few red ornaments.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas Tablescape In the center is my stag head compote…a thrifting find from several years ago which echoes the stag candle holders on my tartan and magnolia Christmas mantel.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas Tablescape I filled it with faux moss rocks that I found at Dollar Tree a few years ago, as well as mercury glass acorns and small red glitter ornaments.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas Tablescape At each place is a wicker charger to echo the colors of the burlap and add some texture. It is topped by my favorite go-to chunky plates…Felice by Chris Madden.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas Tablescape I have used my wedding flatware in pewter and the matching goblets…Octette from Gorham. I like to mix in inexpensive finds as well so I have added the wine glasses that I found at Goodwill several years ago.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas Tablescape I debated about changing the blue and white transferware on the hutch for my white Wedgwood but I discovered that I really like the way it looks with the tartan tablecloth…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas Tablescape …so I simply mixed in a few bits of red and plaid to give it a more festive look.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pewter and Plaid Christmas Tablescape I added some red candles in the rooster sconces and a wreath sporting lots of red berries and the look was complete.

  1. Well Hello (Baby) Kitty. :) One of my fave tables Deb. And you are right, those darling Christmas Tree Napkin Folds are fabulous. But I adore the stag head bowl. Please make sure you "store" that in the guest room closet. I may have to "borrow" that in my suitcase next time I visit. :-D Good job, my friend. I pinned. xxoo, Barb

  2. Beautiful table, Debbie!
    Merry Christmas...

  3. Looks wonderful! I'm loving all the plaid out there this year and you've done a marvelous job using it on your table. It looks great with the pewter. Your blue/white dishes DO look terrific as a backdrop and also tie in your curtains to the whole look. Love the napkin fold too!

  4. I love it! Love the plaid and the pewter and the way you pulled all together so beautifully Debbie!
    XO Barbara

  5. This is gorgeous Debbie. I am so in love with red plaid this year and your table is perfection. I adore the centerpiece bowl. What a wonderful piece.

  6. Beautiful table and love the Christmas tree napkin fold.

  7. Oh my!
    It is so beautiful ... absolutely beautiful!

  8. Debbie, the table is lovely. I am such a fan of plaid but it is hard to find thrifting! Baby Kitty we are still Ho-Ho-Hoing at my house also.

  9. Debbie, your Christmas table is full of cheer. I'm a fan of plaid anytime of the year, but especially at Christmas. Love it mixed with blue and white china too. ;-)

  10. Debbie, it's just charming! I cannot tell if your tablecloth is oval or oblong....I've got an oval table and cannot find a red plaid tablecloth for it. Where did you find yours?

    1. Hi Susan! So glad that you like it! It's oval with a rectangular tablecloth. Hugs...Debbie

  11. Very pretty Debbie, I love the festive napkin fold:@)

  12. I can't say enough about this table! It's BEAUTIFUL-----every element. I'm going to check out the napkin fold, although it would be sad to see every guest pull it apart before dinner!!! (LOL) It adds so much to the tablescape. Thank you for sharing. Merry Christmas. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  13. Gorgeous table! And that napkin fold...super! ;)

  14. Love your home in plaid!!! It is amazing how you can make all looks work in your home!! That my dear friend is what I call CLEVER!!! and we all know you are very very clever. Great job Deb, darling napkins and the stag bowl is a beauty,
    xoxo Kathysue

  15. Beautiful table. I LOVE everything! The napkins are beyond adorable. Thank you for sharing the tutorial. Merry Christmas!

  16. What a beautifully done table setting Debbie! I'm glad you kept the blue Willow china, it just adds to the table scape and by adding the greenery to it, it joins into the seasonal decor. I love anything plaid, so this was just food for my soul. I saw the napkin tutorial last week and it's so clever and looks great! Your runner reminds me that I made a purse and pillow cover out of that same runner, you can check it out here under Owls emerge from remnants. Thanks for sharing!

  17. I love those incredible finds that you get & you make everything & anything look beautiful!

  18. Love the tartan and all the rustic and warm elements of your tablescape. And being a lover of hutches ~ I am wild about yours!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  19. I pinned half of the pictures from this post and I emailed them to myself so I don't forget a single detail!. I love the napkin fold, I had been wanting to try it and now I am inspired to use it for the weekend, the bow at the top of the tree makes these tree napkins awesome!!. Your blue transferware is gorgeous in the hutch - A perfect look for the holidays.

  20. Very pretty, Debbie. I love everything...Christine

  21. Just beautiful!!! I love love love the napkin fold! I never would have thought to mix moss rocks with ornaments like you did, it looks fabulous. Merry Christmas!

  22. Debbie,

    Handsome Baby Kitty has persuaded me to return, soon!!!
