I can’t believe the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop is already at day 10! Today’s theme is Christmas table settings. Since our Christmas Eve party usually has at least 30 people, sometimes even close to 50, I take the easy way out…
Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!
Stop by every day from December first through the twelfth for new ideas you can use to make your season brighter!
Meet Your Hosts
They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!
Table for 40
For today’s theme, I went out and bought gold chargers and started brainstorming napkin ring ideas. With the kitchen newly remodeled, I’m already planning on getting new dishes. I also thought about pulling out my antique China… it’s been in boxes for at least 20 years…
But, the reality is, it’s just not my style to set a fancy table.
I try to have as stress-free of a holiday season as possible. The last thing I want to do is have to hand wash all that China on Christmas Eve after church.
So, I go disposable all the way for Christmas!
I have a few red knit baskets with white snowflakes. One of them is perfect for holding plates, napkins, and cutlery. The gold and silver snowflakes on the plates and matching napkins go nicely.
A few mason jars coral all the cutlery. Yes, I left the napkins and plates in the wrappers still, I’ll open them before my guests arrive.
I so appreciate a beautifully set table, maybe when my kids are older we’ll set a beautiful table for Christmas dinner. But, while they are young, we’ll continue to use disposable on Christmas Eve. For Christmas day, we’ll still be lounging around in our jammies, probably using any leftover disposable plates. Less dishes means more time lounge around and enjoy each other on Christmas day!
