I have yet to host Christmas dinner but that doesn't mean I can't help out at my parent's house for our celebration!
Whining Hostess on the road...
Red and gold was the theme, using items she had stashed away. Red tablecloth and Poinsettas just scream Christmas. We brought out the China, fabric napkins and floral napkin rings, all keeping with the red and gold theme.
Our family is growing so we have to set 2 tables, usually one is for the grown-ups and the other is the kid table. (yes, I'm still at the kid table!) For the 2nd table, we still stuck with the red and gold theme but used a gold tablecloth and red runner, white napkins and tied with gold ribbon.
This was unplanned and we just dug through the closets to find what she had and what we could work with. A table setting is so easy and fun and makes for more elegant Christmas dinner.
