Woodland theme...sort of...

Do you ever set your table and it turns out completely different than what you had intended?
Well I first set this table with a red checked tablecloth and it looked awful...I loved the dishes and everything else....then inspiration hit...black.
   I have loved looking at tablescapes on other blogs over the last couple of years since Tablescaping became en vogue.  So many amazing blogs with amazing ideas. So black it became.
 Black and white napkins, with a black lantern (spray painted of course...the glass had been broken out of it and it was on sale for $4.00 at HOme goods)...and black handled silverware.

Dishes from Target a few seasons back...

Thanks for coming by!

Hi Debbie,
I love your tablescape and the addition of the black is just perfect. I looks as though you are ready for a real Christmas feast!

I hope that you and your family have a beautiful Christmas.

Your table looks wonderful! I think the black tablecloth was a great choice. I love the lantern. For that price, who needs the glass anyway?

Everything look so beautiful Debbie! Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

Wow, the black really DOES make your table pop! What darling Christmas dishes -- have seen that pattern!

Alycia Nichols said...

Wise decision, Debbie! I don't know that you could have effectively gone with any other color than black. Because it's a neutral, it's just one of those colors that can easily fade into the background and let your dishes and accessories shine on their own merit. Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!

Everything looks delightful and happy at your house. I love how this all turned out. Your dishes are so sweet.

Debbie, what a wonderful deal on your lantern. I love the contrasts of the black tablecloth with the colorful Christmas china and red placemats...so pretty! Love the berries in the pitcher, too. :) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your sweet family!
