Transitional Tablescape pt.2

Remember my Thanksgiving tablescape from a few weeks ago? I called it my Transitional Table because I thought it could work for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. 
Well, no sooner had I posted it than someone wanted to buy all of the dishes!

No problem, the idea was that this table would be easy to swap out for Christmas. So presto chango - swap out the Ascot Village plates for red transferware and I've got a new look.

 I've got a mismatched set of red transferware, if you look closely each plate is different. Most English potteries made a red transferware with either country scenes, old castles or some chinoiserie.

 I think they look great on the tartan tablecloth.

 I also traded out my monogramed napkins for some Christmas Tree ones and added a bit of sparkle to the centerpiece.

I have a nice collection of tartan tins so I added them to the mix. 

This has been a super fun and super easy table setting to put together!
I like to join these parties


  1. Pretty table! I look for tartan tins this time of year, and save any I find to use again and again.

  2. Loved your Ascot Village plates (congrats on the sale) but, your red transfer ware is also very pretty and so magical this time of year. Best ~ Mickie.

  3. Your table is so pretty! I love the tartan and the basket of pine cones!

  4. Beautiful table! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!
