Christmas Kitchen Table from last year-Photos

dawnpNovember 30, 2010

I thought I would post my kitchen table decorations from last year. This year I am thinking of eliminating the white and adding a tan linen or burlap runner and adding greenery. I think it looked a little too white for my kitchen.

The "ornaments" are candles from Crate and Barrel.

Wow, so pretty! Love the swirled ornaments and colors you used. Beautiful candle holders. Hope you will post more pictures when you set them out this year.

Red and white is always a classic, but ivory or tan would probably work well too--just a matter of preference. I love your assortment of mercury glass candle holders. This forum really loves stacked plates too. ;o) Hope you will share some more of your decorations with us, and feel free to make comments on our posts as well. Luvs

I like the red and white, it is so cheery. A burlap runner and some greenery would make it more natural. I know what you mean, I like to try and change things up a little from year to year.

beautiful but I also love the idea of changing it up a little this year. The burlap and greens will definitely give it a woodsy/outdoor look - look forwarding to seeing your pictures this year .....

Your candlesticks are sure something. I WANT THEM!

I like the white, but I think the burlap is definitely more "in" this year. Post pictures when you've completed the change.

Ok, you asked so here's the 2010 version. What do you think?

I purchased this linen woven runner. I tried it with the red tablecloth but I think the green looks much better in my kitchen. I also took away the white candles and added the green ones.

Please ignore the arrangement of the greens. I just placed it quickly for the effect. I won't actually put it on the table until our party next weekend.

Thanks for all the positive reinforcement! :)

L.O.V.E. the 2010 Edition! Not that I didn't love Version 2.009 :) The green, silver and red combination is just lovely!
