A Fun Take on a Traditional Christmas Table

This post is sponsored by CarefulPeach and Juliska.

CarefulPeach is one of my favorite shops here in Oak Park, and they have a beautiful display wall of plates and serving pieces from Juliska right inside the front door. (You can see it in my 2014 post on local independent shopping.)

We’ve teamed up to bring you a Christmas table setting that mixes formal and informal, traditional and modern, and of course a bit of pink.

And yes, this is the first setting in my newly redone office! I love having the marble table as an alternative shooting space to the dining room. I’ve been bringing my lunch up here sometimes just because it’s so pretty.

I’m all for setting a proper table, but I broke the rules a bit by placing the butter knife on the napkin with the forks. I liked the way the details of the Berry and Thread flatware showed up against the red plaid! I also liked that it broke the formality of some of the pieces.

The pewter dinner plates and chargers are a popular choice in wedding registries at CarefulPeach. They mix well with everything from plain plates to patterned, and look equally good with silver and gold. (And they aren’t really pewter, in case you’re wondering. The name refers to the color and finish — they’re stoneware, as easy to care for and throw in the dishwasher as any other plate. They’re also oven-to-table and microwave safe.)

The Berry and Thread Snowfall Plates on top come in a set of four and the pattern on each plate is different. That little scalloped edge detail is awfully cute.

There’s a matching Snowfall Platter, too.

And this lovely Berry and Thread Hors d’oeuvres Board. I propped it up like a cutting board in an all-white kitchen like the cool kids do on Instagram, but clearly it deserves some yummy cheeses on top.

The white Christmas trees and oversized silver ornaments (plastic, but I assumed they were glass until I picked one up!) are also from the shop. They have tons of holiday decorations in to choose from but I liked these to brighten up the dark wood tones.

And those pink swirly glasses! Be still my heart. I’ve used the footed goblet and tumbler, but there’s a highball glass in pink too.

They’re my favorite part of the table, but of course I’m biased toward anything pink. They work for Christmas with the red plaid napkins, but I want to do an Easter table with them! Valentine’s Day! My birthday! Everyday is a good day for pretty pink glasses, really.

The beauty of everything is that it can all be mixed and matched together and with what you might already own. The Snowfall plates and plaid say Christmas and they can easily bring a little holiday cheer to a standard set of white plates, or add some of the pewter collection to your table for a different look. It’s all very merry.
