An Angelic Christmas Table

My sweet friends, this week you are in for a real treat! The talented Chloe, at Celebrate and Decorate, is hosting a Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop.  The schedule is posted below, and I know that you will find lots of wonderful inspiration for your holiday entertaining.

This year’s table is very special to me. It was created using my Grandmother’s china.  Although, she is no longer with us, I know that she would love this tablescape. Therefore, I am dedicating this special table to her.

I found this tablecloth a couple of weeks ago at Homegoods. I knew the vibrant red would be perfect for the holidays.

My Grandmother’s china with the pretty blue flowers plays perfectly against the bright red. The china is called Blue Madeira.

I paired the blue floral china with my Mikasa English Countryside. Each setting is anchored with a scalloped gold charger plate and gold lace placemats. I finished off each setting with American Fostoria crystal and Oneida Michelangelo flatware.


The centerpiece is a large blue and white bowl filled with red ornaments and pinecones. Pine branches and a cream lace table runner span the center of the table.

Flanking each end of the centerpiece are gold pillar candle holders and angels. I love these gold angels and look forward to using them each Christmas season.



I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit today. This week, be sure to check out the other blogger’s tables.  I know that you will be inspired! Also, if you missed last week’s living room tour you can click the link below. I hope that you have a wonderful Monday, dear friends!!!

  4. So pretty, Shannon, and coordinates so well with your LR. Angels are truly the most ethereal representation of the season in my opinion. Love them on your table.

  5. Such a beautiful table setting! Having your Grandmas China is such a treasure. And you made it all special again!
    Thank you for sharing! I know how hard it is to do a blog post let alone at this busy time of year!

  6. Love your beautiful angels and candlesticks. Shannon, you have showcased your grandmother’s china with a wonderful table design. How sweet to dedicate a table to her.
    That tablecloth was a great find.

  8. Shannon, as usual, your table setting is beautiful. Love the bowl with red ornaments at the center. Happy to be on the blog hop with you.

  9. The way you pair your signature blue with red is magical Shannon, and the golden angels are a wonderful contrast. I know your grandmother is smiling from above as she sees you enjoying and appreciating her beautiful things. Your home is one big holiday hug from your tree and beautiful living room to your very inviting dining room table!

  10. Oh Shannon, you brought memories of my wonderful grandmother and how sweet to dedicate your beautiful tablescape to your grandmother. The blue dishes are a treasure indeed. My eye went instantly to the bowl of red ornaments and pinecones….they definitely convey the Christmas Season and your find of the red and green paisley tablecloth is perfect. I was drawn to the Home Goods tablecloth when shopping and passed on it…and now after seeing how it compliments your whole table, I realize I must be more intuitive the next time my instinct speaks to me. 🙂
    It is always a pleasure to table hop with you. Merry Christmas!

  11. Almost too pretty to eat on! Love how you styled your beautiful Christmas table. Your hutch is gorgeous, too.

  12. It is wonderful to use treasured things every year, those angels and your grandmother’s china are wonderful tradidions. Beautiful table!!

  13. It was such a beautiful surprise to see red mixed with a lovely shade of blue instead of the traditional green for Christmas. It really makes it unique and yet so opulent. Perfect for Christmas. Your story was heartwarming and your grandmother’s china is a classic. I fell in love with your lovely decorated china cupboard also. That is also decorated so beautifully too. The Christmas tree is so well done with the same gorgeous colors. I would have loved to see it all together in person. So grand! Have a wonderful Christmas with many blessings for you and your family.

  14. Shannon, I always love to visit your beautiful home, so warm and inviting! What a stunning tribute to your grandmother using her beautiful china! The tablecloth is festive and looks so pretty with your dish stack! The centerpiece of ornaments and pine cones are perfect in your signature use of blue and white as seen in the bowl. The angels make a lovely statement of the true meaning of Christmas! Beautiful my sweet friend!

    Candlesticks, angels, blue dishes—and that glorious tree. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! The paisley background is lovely— you are a Master at blending colors, textures, and patterns. A warm, glowing table! I have enjoyed playing with you on the hops.

  17. Shannon, your table is beautiful! I love how the blue compliments the red – the china is lovely and your grandmother would be so proud! The paisley tablecloth is the perfect compliment to the setting and your festive red napkins pull the whole look together! Happy hopping with you and Merry Christmas!

  18. I love the continued use of blue and red. It is such a refreshing combination and nice twist on the traditional holiday colors. Perfection!!!

  19. Such a pretty tablescape and a wonderful tribute to your grandma! Her dishes are lovely and the dish stack you created sets them off perfectly. I really like those gold chargers! Your Home Goods tablecloth makes a terrific backdrop to the “pretties” on the table. And of course, the angels steal the show! Really enjoyed my second stop here on the Blog Hop!

The red and blue throughout your home is such a classic look and you have truly captured it on your dining room table. Your Grandma would be thrilled to see her plates in such a lovely setting. Very French Country.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely ideas.


  41. Thank you so much for being part of the Christmas tablescape blog hop! Your table truly is angelic, and your grandmother’s china shines as the most beautiful focal point of the design. The shot of the centerpiece with the china cabinet in the background is gorgeous, and shows how nicely you tied the decorations together between the two areas. The lace placemats are also so delicate and pretty!
