Because we would serve both coffee and our signature holiday champagne cocktail, I chose the All the Days of Christmas set.
We have collected all twelve of the salad plates, each with a different pattern. We have four mugs with the seven swans a'swimming design.

|"Eight Maids Milking" and "Three French Hens"|
I have had the plaid tablecloth since the mid '80s -- everything old is new again! Since it is rectangular, it doesn't quite cover the round table, and the wood top is showing in a couple of the pictures.
I paired the tablecloth with red napkins. Gold colored napkin rings that I bought years ago and heavy brass candlesticks play off the gold thread in the tablecloth and on the rims of the china.
The centerpiece is a simple grouping of faux pine branches and pine cones, vintage candlesticks and ceramic reindeer. I added red ribbons to echo those on the plates.
On a chilly rainy day, the red and green tablescape felt comforting. With a scrumptious dessert, flavored coffee and the Husband's signature champagne, I believe our guests will feel "tidings of comfort and joy."
