Christmas Table with Red and Black

Recently, I took you on a Christmas tour of my home where I used mostly red, black, and green in each room.  Even though I had my table set with those colors on the tour, I realized I had even more red and black accessories.  Why not pull them out and set the table again?!!…

A Festive Christmas Table with Red and Black…

I used the same cranberry-filled hurricane again since cranberries work so well this time of year.

Black and White Toile Tablecloth

A black and white toile tablecloth made a great background for all the red and green.

Yes, the sun finally came out this morning, although it didn’t warm things up much.  It’s been quite chilly these past few days.  I guess we can’t complain after the mild fall we have had…and it is December after all!

Red and Black Houndstooth Napkin Rings

I used some of my houndstooth ribbon (the same as my foyer Christmas tree) to make “napkin rings” and then I just stuffed some fresh greens in the top.  The houndstooth gives a bit of a masculine feel to offset the more feminine black and white toile.

Red, Black and White Christmas Place Setting

My white Italian Countryside plates go with everything and can be dressed up or down.  Even though I love patterned plates, I get the most use out of plain white ones.  Toile Table Setting for Christmas

The vibrant red napkin stands out on the white plate.

Fresh Greens on Christmas Table

Although, I love the idea of going neutral at Christmas, I just love color and always end up with red!

    That's a great color combination! I love the tablecloth you used. It really sets the tone. You can't beat red at the holidays either. It's so classic.
