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.)
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.
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.
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.
