I wanted to incorporate more blue and white
into my Christmas decor this year.
When I began to think about the theme and color
of the Christmas tablescape, I looked in my cupboards
and then glanced at my mantel
and then it occurred to me what I wanted to do. The epiphany moment.
When HomeGoods had this wonderful Ralph Lauren blue and white dinner ware collection
I bought some covered jars, plates and egg cups.
The covered jars were originally in the guest room hutch, then lately, the mantel.
I must say that with the exception of the miniature Norfolk pines,
everything on the table were things that I had on hand. So fun to shop the house.
Have you noticed a crystal/glass base on the bottom of the egg cup?
These are actually snowflake votive holders turned upside down and
attached to the base of the egg cup with double sided tape.
The hinged gold present box that I use as a place card holder
makes another appearance on the Christmas table.
Mainly because my granddaughter loves to put special surprises in them.
The gold deer also making another appearance this year.
Faux and real candles give a glow to the table.
These faux candles have clips at the base and can be attached
to many things. I have actually attached one to a book.
The green pears are the ones that my granddaughter gave me as a
souvenir from her trip to the Biltmore House.
She said when she saw them, she thought that I would love them . . . and I do!

and salad plate by Ralph Lauren. Stemware by Lenox.
When I decided to bring in the Ralph Lauren collection into the dining room,
I also brought in the pillows that coordinate with them
placed in the chairs in the bay window area of the dining room.
The wreath is hung, the table is set and ready for Christmas festivities.
Hope you enjoyed my dining room dressed for Christmas.
