Holiday White Table

Cut glass and sparkle is a good place to start a festive table.

Candle glow brings warmth to an all white table setting, day or night. Did you notice we still have our overcast days?

The mixed crystal is all vintage. Pieces I have collected one, or two, or three at a time. I can never get enough of the light sparkling on the facets.

Portuguese majolica salad plates with a pear motif dress up the Wedgewood Hedge Rose china which features a more subtley decorated edge.

Vintage lace underneath, and greens on top.

The bell garland is from last year's Rachel Ashwell collection. I love the vintage look it lends to the table.

I adore the elegant simplicity of seeded eucalyptus, and it's longevity. It even dries well. 

A mixed bunch of greens and baby's breath make a quick, pretty, and inexpensive centerpiece in my French ironstone pot.

Lovely mixed textures.

A hint of pastel breaks up the sea of white. Glitter tags are by Papaya. Just setting up the table puts me in a party mood!

I hope your days are Merry and Bright!
Ciao! for now!

Those plates are beautiful. The whole table looks so inviting and calming. Oh, and I do like 'calm' at Christmas. I think this is my favorite table setting so far this Christmas in blogland. Lovely. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x4

I just did a post about texture outdoors and it just goes to show how interesting a table can be using different textures inside as well.
Your crystal and sparkle is pretty.
