Christmas Table with Plaid and Natural Accents
This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. For full
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.

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
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
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.

green stoneware tree
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.
red striped napkins
and vintage silver make the buffet ready for dining. They look so festive!
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.
