Christmas lunch for two.



Even though I have tried many different colours at Christmas (mainly pink and silver at the farm house) I think red and green just seem to scream Christmas to me. I am lucky as my beachhouse leans more to these colours so I am able to have a little bit of each!



I started todays table with a pretty tablecloth I had made from a lovely piece of Christmas fabric many years ago. I have used my red dinnerset which I purchased this year.


I made these double sided napkins to use during the festive season so they were perfect for today's table.



These wonderful red chargers I purchased a couple of years ago but sadly there were only two so I usually only use them as serving plates but they fitted in  perfectly with this table.



As you can see I have had a change of mind.... I added the large white chargers just to break up the 'redness'.


Not bad I think, nice for a little luncheon with a close friend.


It's lucky I don't throw anything out - these simple white napkins rings are perfect to finish off the setting. I have had them for about 20 years I think. I must have known I was going to become addicted to tablescaping!!!

I'm off to Perth today to finish a little bit of shopping and to take in a movie with DNo1. We are going to see Due Date which could be quite funny as she has only 3 weeks until her due date!!

I love the the punch that the white chargers added to your tablescape. The red dinnerware is such a wonderfully versatile pattern...I can visualize them used in so many different settings. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
