Christmas Table with Plaid and Natural Accents

Have you started thinking about your Christmas table yet? We don’t have a
formal dining room in this house, but I always have fun dressing up our
breakfast room table for the holidays. 

I’m sharing how I have it decorated
as part of the Celebrating Christmas Home Tour hosted by my friend Leen at
Sand Dollar Lane. 

There are ideas for trees, wreaths, tables, and more, so make sure you visit
everyone. The links are at the bottom of this post.

Our Christmas decor has a major plaid theme happening this year, and the
table continues with that look. I wanted to make things feel cozy and comfy
and I love the way that plaid accents do that. 

For this year’s table setting, I started with a folded
plaid throw blanket
and used it as the table runner. The brown dishes were a gift from a friend a few years ago, and the white dishes came from the thrift store.

The centerpiece is simply a wooden caddy filled with pomegranates from the
grocery store and branch clippings from the yard. I added a few dried orange
slices and pine cones to fill it in. 

TIP: if you have a container you want to use but it’s too deep, place
some crumpled up paper in the bottom first. It will fill it up so your items
are more visible.

My mom gave me the pretty glasses a few months ago when she was cleaning out her cabinets. Aren’t they pretty?

Antique Oak Hutch Decorated for Christmas

Our antique oak hutch is always a favorite place to add Christmas decor. I
always have white ironstone pitchers and platters in here, but added a few
simple pieces to give it a holiday look.

These little
birch and paper house LED ornaments
are a favorite addition to my shop this year. The look perfect with the
Johnson Brothers Friendly Village plates
I added to the hutch.

Nuts and dried fruits also give it a holiday look. And I added the miniature
vintage mercury glass ornaments for a pop of red to coordinate with the

white ironstone gravy pitcher with dried oranges on stack of brown transferware

I never saw a white ironstone pitcher that I didn’t love. This curvy-handled
pitcher was the first piece of my collection. Most of my pieces have come from estate sales, yard sales, and thrift stores.

Christmas-themed tiered tray

Decorating my
three tier wood tray
is one of my favorite quick and easy ways to get ready for the holidays. I
added some smaller ironstone pieces, my
santa mugs, and some little
preserved boxwood topiaries

The little

is another fun addition to my shop this season. I only buy things for the
shop that I love, and sometimes I can’t bear to part with them, lol.

I wasn’t satisfied with the centerpiece so I draped a little wood bead garland across the top handle. It looks like it’s wearing a necklace and is
ready for a celebration now.

Simple, rustic, cozy, and maybe even a little elegant. That’s how I would
describe our little Christmas table.

  1. Angie, of course I love your cozy Christmas decor with all the great naturals and fun pieces from your shop. I'm using pomegranate too this year. Such a great color and when they start to turn I'll make sure to eat them or squeeze out the juice. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas with your husband and girls.

  2. Your dining room says the holidays are here. Love all the plaid and the caddy turned centerpiece is so pretty filled with pomegranates and fresh greenery. I think I'm experiencing a little ironstone envy too! Love it Angie!
