How to Style a Holiday Table With Plaid
I used a metal table with clear chairs for my outdoor holiday table. I have these rattan chairs as the headers to my table that I found in the flea market and painted white. A great way to add something different to your holiday table is to mismatch chairs, especially at the ends of the table.
I chose to add bows to the back of my rattan chairs. I love the way the red and gold look against the white.
So typically I don’t do completely traditional holiday decor, but since it was feeling like spring outside, I decided to go a little more spot-on. I started with red plaid squares and laid them down in a diamond shape to create a runner of sorts. This was the base for the entire table. I also added holiday decor on top the plaid to add some extra spirit to the tablescape.
I have a secret stash of greens in the back of my yard that I get from the flower mart for about 7 to 10 dollars a bunch and then I keep them in buckets of water. They last 4 or 5 weeks and are perfect to make really pretty arrangements for different parties that I throw during the holiday season.
I picked this plate selection of off-white plates with the beading around the edge and the sea foam green plates in large and small that I think really pick up the light green in the napkins really nicely.
From above, you can see how well the off-white and pale green play off the plaid.
I also have a stash of napkin rings (I entertain a lot so I use them regularly) but on this occasion, I chose some holiday festive bell napkin rings that look great against the red.
Here, I made a great flower arrangement for my holiday table. I just love the color of this arrangement for my table. The red and green tablescape with the glasses. Here is a close-up of the finished set for one guest.
I just love the symmetry of this tabletop. I think the plaid and the flower arrangement really complete this tablescape.
