A Traditional and Classic Christmas Tablescape
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.

Red sequins adorned my dress and the billowing sleeves gave me room to maneuver throughout the night.
