Plaid, red, green, gold, lights, trees, sparkles, twinkles. Does this ring your bell? Then this traditional and classic Christmas tablescape is for you. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I like to change things up and give them a twist. Not with this one. I went straightforward classic, traditional, time-honored, historic, customary Christmas. And I’m not apologizing.
The Place Setting
It’s hard not to get suckered into buying an entire placesetting of adorable holiday patterned plates, but consider purchasing just a set of salad plates or dessert plates. It’s much more affordable and your storage space will thank you.
To shop the plates:
To shop the glasses and flatware:
To shop the linens:
Real magnolia leaves can be purchased fresh and then dried so that you can enjoy them for several years. This one is from The Magnolia Company and comes with a box for proper storage.
Don’t forget the candles – they add a warm and soft ambiance to any table. I like gold taper candles with a little sparkle for some holiday glam. The jewel-shaped ornaments on the trees are from Target!
To shop the centerpiece:
Red sequins adorned my dress and the billowing sleeves gave me room to maneuver throughout the night.
Here’s a link for the dress and shoes:

This is SOOOO beautiful! Love every detail!
Hi Lori! Thank you so much – I’m so glad you liked this one. It was special for me to style a table using my heirloom pieces! xoxo
Julie Roth says
Thank you so much for including us in your gorgeous tablescape Lory! Our fresh garlands work beautifully on tables and like all of our fresh items, they dry beautifully as well. Since Magnolia garlands are free form, they are a bit harder to store and re-use once dried. For table pieces that can be stored and re-used from season to season, we recommend our fresh Magnolia mantlepieces because they are crafted on a sturdy base and can be easily moved. We offer them in all of our garland designs. Happy holidays Lory!
