Welcome to the Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop. I am so happy that you stopped by and feel so honored to be featured with such a wonderful and talented group of ladies. We owe an enormous amount of gratitude to the talented Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate for hosting this creative round up of Holiday tables. The schedule and links to the participating blogs are listed at the end of this post.
I love Christmastime! God truly blessed me with the most wonderful family. I have the best husband a girl could ever wish for and three beautiful children. My Parents are the most caring people that you will ever meet, and my Grandparents were such a strong presence in my life. They always showed me unconditional love. I saw my Grandparents almost every day, and I know I was fortunate to have this privilege. It is not a gift that I have taken lightly. Only one of my Grandparents is living, and I treasure her very dearly. I miss my other Grandparents very much, especially at Christmastime. Along with my Parents, they helped to instill the true meaning of Christmas into my heart. I have such happy memories and treasure them so. Today’s Christmas table is a family inspired table of love, warmth, reflections of blessings, and happiness.
For the underpinning of the table, I chose a cream lace tablecloth. Each place setting is anchored with a burlap placemat.
For the centerpiece, a pretty Christmas pitcher is filled with greens, berries, and pine cones. The pitcher is flanked by crystal candlestick holders and red candles.
Also adorning the centerpiece are American Fostoria glasses filled with pine branches and candy canes. The Fostoria glasses belonged to my Great Grandmother. Blue Christmas ornaments and candy Christmas trees are also scattered about the table.
The place setting consist of red plates with white polka dots. The accent plate is from the Pioneer Woman Christmas Collection. The crystal is American Fostoria, and the flatware is Michelangelo by Oneida.
I love these pretty plates form the Pioneer Woman Collection. They match the pitcher I used as the centerpiece. They have an old fashioned Christmas look.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Please be sure and check out the other bloggers participating in the Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop. I know that you will be in for a treat! There is lots of wonderful Holiday Inspiration. I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday and a very Merry and Happy Christmas Season!!!

Shannon, what a beautiful table full of love and memories. The polka dot plates and the Pioneer Woman salad plates make a perfect pairing. I loved reading about your family and what blessings and influences they have been on your life. I have so enjoyed this blog hop with so many talented ladies. Your table starts my day off with a smile! Wishing you a joy-filled day!
Thank you, Pam, for your very sweet and kind words. It has been so much fun participating in the blog hop, and I am so excited for next week. I can’t wait to see everyone’s beautiful Christmas Decor! I hope that you have a great weekend!!!
Shannon, It’s always a treat to join you at the table! I love your pretty tree PW plates with their scalloped edges and floral and greenery borders! Your burlap placemats are such a pretty contrast to the delicate lace tablecloth and lace-edged red napkins. Your Fostoria goblets are so classic and add such a wonderful old-fashioned touch to pair with your dishes…how nice that you have a remembrance of your great grandmother at your table 🙂
Mary, thank you for your very sweet and kind comment! I feel so honored to be participating alongside you and the other wonderful ladies in this fun Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop. Your tablescapes are always gorgeous, and I look forward to your posts. I hope that you have a great rest of your week!!!
What a pretty table Shannon….I am loving those plates from the Pioneer Woman collection! You have so beautifully set the table around that wonderful dinnerware!…..A perfect centerpiece to set the theme…and you know how much I love the Fostoria stemware!
Thank you, Shirley for your sweet words! I hope that you are having a great week, and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!!
What a happy table, Shannon! Your thoughts on your family warm my heart. Love is what Christmas is about.
I love your Pioneer Woman plates and pitcher. It is delightful and how you added greenery and berries to the pitcher and accenting with candy canes was perfect. I bet your children are asking if they can have a candy cane but I’m sure you have extra. Darling candy cane trees that pulled out the blue in your plates and ornaments were a great find.
The justaposition of burlap placemats and a lace tablecloth works beautifully. I love your table.
Yes, Bonnie, I have lots of extra candy canes, and they are going fast! My youngest loves them! Thank you so much for your very sweet and kind words. I’m so happy that I was able to join such a wonderful group of ladies in this Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop. It has been so much fun, and everyone’s table has been absolutely beautiful! I hope that you have a great rest of your week!!!
Shannon, your Christmas is a fun mix of classic and modern styles. The lace cloth and Fostoria, together with the polka dot plates as chargers and burlap placemats, are a nice weaving of old and new, certain to delight all the generations that will share around the table, making new memories. The Pioneer Woman plates are super nice – you just can’t beat traditional red and green at Christmastime. Happy Holidays!
Happy Holiday’s to you too, Rita! Thank you for the sweet comment! I hope that you are having a great week!!!
Your table reflects your warm heart full of family love Shannon, it’s welcoming and actually feels like a hug! Love the PW plates and pitcher! It is so clever how you brought in your beloved blue 🙂 I wish you and your family a December full of fun, memories and blessings!
Jenna, what a kind and sweet thing to say. That is what I hoped to convey, and I am so happy that you noticed that! I have had so much fun participating in the blog hop, and have loved seeing everyone’s beautiful tables! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!!
I so enjoyed this pretty holiday tablescape. Your Christmas plates are fabulous and I adore the greenery and red berries. You always decorate with traditonal class and inspire!
Thank you so much, Jemma! I hope that you are having a great week!!!
Shannon, as always, what a pretty setting you’ve created. Love the plates and the pitcher and all the natural greenery. It’s so perfectly Christmas. I always love sharing with you on a blog hop!
Thank you, Carol, for the sweet comment! It has been so much fun sharing with all of you wonderful girls on this blog hop. Everyone’s table has been absolutely beautiful! I hope that you have a great rest of your week!!!
Such a pretty tablescape, Shannon! I love the Pioneer Woman line of dishes, too. I hadn’t seen these, they are so pretty with their delicate tree and incorporating the pitcher to carry through your theme. What wonderful memories you have. I mostly lived across the country from my grandparents and I am a little sad that my beloved granddaughters are currently across the country from me. I am blessed to have my parents now living out their senior years in an apartment above my garage. I joke that they live “in my backyard”. Thank you for being a part of the Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop!
Sweet Chloe, thank you so much for hosting this wonderful blog hop and allowing me to be a part of it! I am so excited about the home tours next week, and can’t wait to see everyone’s beautiful Christmas decor. I hope that you are having a wonderful week!!!
Shannon, I loved your prelude to your table setting, of fond family recollections! I didn’t see my grandparents everyday, but was still very close to them. They were such a wonderful influence in my life and I treasure those memories of them and our times spent together… lots of adventures! 🙂 Your post made me think of them this morning! Your tablescape is so lovely and inviting! The PW plates are pretty and fit your theme perfectly! And the little candy cane trees are just precious! ~Rhonda
Rhonda, I am so happy that my tablescape made you think of your dear Grandparents. Thank you so much for your very sweet and kind words! I hope that you are having a wonderful week!!!

It has been a pleasure to blog hop with you. Merry christmas.
Thank you, Linda, for the sweet comment. I am so happy that I was able to participate in this blog hop with such a wonderful group of ladies! You are all so talented! It has been so much fun!!!
It’s NOT just because you mentioned it, but rather the overall look of this tablescape, indeed, does give off vibes of happy family times and memories. I love the colour scheme, the terrific contrast between the lace and the burlap, the unexpected but pleasing pop of blue and the pretty elements you combined to create the centerpiece. Anyone would feel welcome sitting down to a Christmas meal at this lovely table.

This is so lovely Shannon– your words about your family and your table! The trees on the plates remind me of bottle brush trees!! And I love the blue and red accents together. We don’t have a dining room- barely a serviceable kitchen table most days so I will have to live vicariously through your table-scaping talents! ♥ Have a very Merry Christmas!!
You are so sweet Heather! Thank you for the kind comment! I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a Merry Christmas, too!!!

Thank you, Bon Bon, for the sweet and kind words. I am so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you are having a great weekend!!!
Beautiful table, Shannon. I am gazing so fondly at your glassware. I saw this pattern at my mother’s holiday tables all my life. This last year, she had to go to an assisted living situation, so her precious things had to be parceled out. My sister-in-law asked for these glasses. There were so many sizes and many serving pieces. I just love how they compliment your polka dot plates. You did a lovely job.
Linda @ A Toile Tale
Linda, I have several different sizes of the Fostoria glassware. Both my mother and I also have some of the serving pieces. They belonged to my Great Grandmother. I am told that she loved crystal and collected this pattern. They are something that we treasure very much. Thank you so much for your very sweet comment. I am so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend!!!
