Christmas tablescape with copper accents

Exactly one week ago, I was on a thrifting adventure with my favorite shopping partner-in-crime Laura, and we came upon the most unexpected find... 

a set of six of these Christmas plates. I certainly do not need any more plates, as my pantry shelves are bursting at the seams, but I can’t resist a deal, and I was intrigued by this pattern that I’d never seen. 

This china pattern is called “Seasons Greetings” by Queen’s Myott Factory from archive illustrations adapted from original copper engravings. I collect a lot of English china, but the weird thing is this pattern is made in Colombia. 

So, I guess this is a South American version of a traditional English holiday plate! Well, let’s get to the fun stuff now... setting the table! 

For this soft pattern, I envisioned a well-worn white linen tablecloth, snowy evergreen branches, copper accents and a few natural textures.

At the center of the table I started with one of my copper lanterns. I have a graduated set of two of these that usually sit on my mantel this time of year. I set the smaller one on a sliced tree trunk and filled the inside with Scrabble letters.   

I collect Scrabble tiles and have a few mason jars filled with them to add a quirky touch to a table from time to time. I just love the colors and texture of the wood for this centerpiece. It's always fun to add an unexpected  accent to every table!

This faux pine garland was found at the craft store (at 70% off), and I cut it in several pieces to layer it just right on the table. A long garland is difficult to manage sometimes on a table, so this way, I placed branches exactly where I wanted them.

The "Seasons Greetings" dinner plates are placed on a larger ironstone charger plate to frame it out perfectly. Copper Moscow Mule mugs serve as water vessels, and we can certainly add simple wine glasses to the table when needed. 

Wood handled flatware and basket-like napkin rings offer that natural texture that every table needs. Instead of flowers, glass Christmas ornaments are sprinkled along the wintry boughs.  


In addition to the lantern at the center of the table, I added a few white votives for added ambiance. 


I just love this dear little pattern, and the border around this plate is beautiful too. Have you ever seen this pattern in these colors?

The toys surrounding this perfectly decorated Christmas tree reminds me of all the wonder and excitement I experienced as a little girl waking up on Christmas morning and finding all the surprises Santa had left for me. 

Over the next several days, there’ll be a flurry of wrapping, last minute shopping and recipes to whip up for the family.  

Let’s not forget to appreciate the wonder and joy of the season. And do a little something special for yourself too!
