Festive Christmas Table Setting with Red and Black Decorations

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 set the table 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?!!… Come take a look at my festive Christmas table setting with red and black decorations!

Festive Christmas Table Setting with Red and Black…

For this table setting, I used the same cranberry-filled hurricane again.  After all, cranberries work so well this time of year.  If you want some more ideas for cranberries, read – What to Do with Leftover Cranberries!

With all the red and green accessories, my black and white toile tablecloth made a great backdrop for all the color.

Yes, the sun finally came out this morning, although it didn’t warm things up much.  In fact, it’s been quite chilly these past few days.  Though, 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

For my napkin rings, I used some of my hounds-tooth ribbon from my foyer Christmas tree.  To keep it simple 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.

Yes, the sun really brightens it up in here.  Since we eat our Christmas breakfast in the kitchen, I always appreciate the cheerful sunshine.

Since my white Italian Countryside plates go with everything, I used them for my table setting.  Even though I love patterned plates, I get the most use out of plain white ones.

Even the sunshine plays a part in the tablescape by allowing the glass to sparkle!

Fresh Greens on Christmas Table

Although, I love the idea of going neutral at Christmas, I just love color.  Usually, I end up with red decorations somewhere in my home…or everywhere!

For Christmas decorating, you can’t go wrong with fresh greens.

With all the color, it helps to have some touches of black.  Besides the black and white toile, I decorated with my classic black candlesticks.
