Simple Red and White Christmas Table

I love seeing pretty Christmas tables.  I love gingham and plaid fabrics, especially in red.
Yesterday I was on a mission to find some dishes to go with some square white plates that I already had.  I was so excited to find these snowman plates from Pier 1.  They were exactly what I'd had in mind and were on sale to boot!

I used my Mom's silver, which I am so happy to have. 
I was thrilled to find the gingham napkins, pretty bell napkin rings and plaid placemats at Pier 1 as well.
Even though we always sit in the same places at our table, I think the placecard holders are cute.


I used  a Santa that was my Mom's for the centerpiece and poinsettias in galvanized pots.
I'm trying to simplify my decorating this year.  I like how this  looks festive and was easy to do. 
Thanks so much for your visit!

I am linking to the following parties:

  1. Nice to meet you Pam!
    Your table is so sweet and homey. Love it.

  2. I like your table! Does look festive. The place card holder, I think, is my favorite!
    Such a cute idea.

  3. Good Morning Pam, I love red for Christmas, especially mixed with green... and like you, I always buy poinsettias to dot around my home. I love the idea of the card holders, I am going to look at my decorations and see if I can make them, as I have so many which my mother Phyllis has passed on to me. Lovely table setting. Have a nice day, Best Wishes Daphne

  4. Pam your table is full of Christmas cheer, I love it!! Have a great week!

  5. those plates are perfect! The table looks festive and love how you tied in tradtions of using your Mom's things.

  6. Pam, your plates are perfect. Thanks for gently reminding me of that check checked tablecloth, that will go perfectly with my informal Christmas dishes, that we use for all of December. You must enjoy Pier 1 as much as I do. Hope you saw my recent post about my find there.:)

  7. Pam,
    It is just perfect, I am such a sucker for gingham. The snowman plates are just adorable. I agree it is simple yet tasteful.
