A Slightly Vintage Look for the Table

I have had this tablecloth forever, it was my Mom's and I have never shown you, I don't think.Actually the tablecloth and a dish on the table are the only "vintage" things. I wanted to set a table for Joe and I and decided to USE it! I love the simplicity of it and then I realized I had napkins that are a great match! So, a simple table was born!The sun actually made an appearance this morning, literally for SECONDS and I snapped away!!!
 On the tablecloth I layered a solid green placemat, a red and white placemat, a green dinner plate, a square salad and a glass compote with a ribbon design that matches well with the tablecloth.

 I added some faux cranberries to the glass dish. And some sprigs of faux holly between the dishes.

 My centerpiece has stayed the same but I have an idea in my head to change it too:)

 This vintage dish holds the S and P and a toothpick holder. It also covers a stain that I can not get out....keepin it real people:)

 I have 4 of these plates and they all have a slightly different tree on them.

 I am also using my green handled flatware.

 At dusk we can light the candles:)

 I love the glow of the tree and the candles.

Thanks for your visit!! I hope you are all getting those last minute chores done and will have some time to ENJOY the holidays!!! I am partying here:

  1. Your table setting is really pretty. I love that you put together things you already had. I can not wait to see what you do with the center piece.

  2. Beautiful as always. Try a mixture of baking soda, peroxide and blue dawn on that stain if you haven't already.

  3. Everything looks wonderful, Pinky..I love your tablecloth...

  4. Pinky, Your mom's tablecloth is lovely. The greens and the reds look so fresh and so festive. This is a perfect table for a holiday meal. Your tree is beautiful in the background too.

  5. Pinky,

  7. Love the vintage look, Pinky.
    Gorgeous table! (Love that tree, too!)
    Have a happy and blessed holiday season.

  8. I'm laughing that you were "keeping it real" about that stain! Sometimes my best looks come from trying to mask the very real oopsies on tablecloths!

    You created a wonderful vintage tablescape here, Pinky. The pieces you used to achieve the look are perfect without going overboard. The tablecloth is fantastic!!! I'm surprised you've never shared it with us until now! It is a real gem!

    I completely understand about having to snap those photos in a real hurry when you finally got a peek of sun. We haven't seen the sun here since Thanksgiving Day!!! It's crazy!!! I feel like we're living in London or Seattle!!!

    I wish you and yours a very Merry and safe Christmas, and a happy New Year!!!
