Christmas Brunch Table Setting

Have you noticed that the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas fly by faster than any other days of the year? It’s like we’re all flying along with Santa at warp speed to get everything done. Today I’m taking a deep breath and putting together a simple Christmas brunch table setting. (This post contains affiliate links.)

Christmas Brunch Table Setting in Red and White

Today’s tablescape is part of “It’s All Set” with a few of my blogging friends. You’ll find links to their inspirational tables at the end of this post.

My mother’s Waechtersbach dishes add the appropriate shade of red to my Christmas brunch table setting. She gave me the set years ago and I like to use them for either breakfast or brunch. White Nantucket plates from World Market serve as chargers. My grandmother’s grape-pattern milk glass tumblers create the finishing touch, and I use these glasses often.

White cotton napkins are tied with a translucent glittery bow, and simple Luna flatware from World Market completes the look.

Simple Place Setting for Christmas Brunch


Red isn’t normally a color I use to decorate, but I love the way it looks in my dining room at Christmas time.  Black and white damask dining chair covers are a new addition to this space.

My centerpiece is a trio of cone-shaped tin flower pots filled with red teacup poinsettias.

Cone-Shaped Tin Flower Pots


Teacup poinsettias are the smallest offered by our local greenhouse specializing in these beautiful flowers. And speaking of the greenhouse, I have a special post this Friday about Shady Hill and their fabulous array of flowers, along with special tips for growing poinsettias.

Holiday brunch is a great option because it combines two meals in one, meaning less cooking for the day. Casseroles are a good choice for brunch and so easy to make, and you can typically make the dish the night before and then bake it in the morning.

  1. A lovely setting. I love your new chairs. I have always liked black and white together with a pop of color, especially red.

  2. I completely love the cone shaped tin pots you have your flowers planted in. I am hoping to order a couple after Christmas. I have a set of the milk glass “grape” tumblers too! We used to call them lemonade glasses as my grandma always put lemonade in them in the summer time! Love the settings of all. Grandkids would get a kick out of the candy canes on each plate. Am thinking about using my mom’s crystal goblets to put a few pine sprigs in along with a couple of small ornaments! Thanks so much for this fun post!

  3. I have this set of Waechtersbach dishes! I should say I “had.” I gave them to my daughter in law when I realized I wouldn’t be having Christmas anymore. I think they’re in the attic since they haven’t hosted Christmas since I gave them to her but I loved getting them out each year. They make a beautiful and festive table and you’ve done them proud. So good to “see” them again!

  4. Such beautiful simplicity, Jennifer! I love all the pops of red and those cone shaped tin pots are so fun! Have a Merry Christmas, sweet friend!

  5. Jennifer, what a pretty brunch table you’ve set! Red isn’t normally my color either, but I love the way you’ve used it here with such a light touch. The poinsettias in the conical pots are wonderful! Also love the soft napkins with lovely ribbon, and the milk glass tumblers! Have a wonderful holiday!!

  6. Very pretty, LOVE the Santa picture.


  7. How pretty and festive. I LOOOVE the pots with the poinsettias! Have a very merry Christmas!

  8. Love It! Those funnel cone vases are so cute. The grape milk glass tumblers bring back some memories. But…..that Santa is so perfect! When I worked at a florist, I handled poinsettias a Lot! I had long hair and getting the milk sap out was a real pain. Your dining room looks quite festive.

  9. Jennifer,
    What size cone vases did you use on your table? I love them and would order but don’t want them too tiny or too large.

  10. Jennifer,
    What a simple yet stunning table setting. I have the red dishes, too, and I love those cone planters! What size did you use? I want to order them, but I don’t want them to be too tiny or too large.
