Christmas Table

This week I have done a traditional red and silver table for Susan's Tablescape Thursday. I have been looking at the gorgeous charger everyone is using and just had to have some (these are not used much here in Australia) so was so thrilled when I went to the city last week and got them at Adairs for 50% off. Six for the price of three - can't get better than that.

I was also lucky enough to find these wonderful Christmas plates on sale at Myer so I bought eight of these - they are something I will be able to have forever to use at Christmas.

The chargers look gold in this photo but they are really silver. My gorgeous red stemware I have had for a few years now. The napkins came from Ikea and  and the white napkin rings are about 20 years old.

This Christmas tree is new this year (also from Adairs I think) and the mercury glass candle holders are from Spotlight. The flatware is Onieda which I have had and used for many years.

I love tealight candles on a table - they are so simple but just seem to add that bit of magic.
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone! I'm sure there will be some wonderful tablescapes to look at next week.

Your table is beautiful. I am just starting to use chargers and I love the way they set off the dishes. Silver and red is one of my favorite combinations.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Love the tablescape! I would have liked to see a few more pictures though. Everything looked so pretty. I loved your border around the photos too. Nice job!
