A Simple Christmas Table

This year, I have been totally obsessed with buffalo check and deer.  So when I found these paper plates and napkins at Albertsons, I knew I had to have them and that I had to set a fun and festive table with them.
I don't have a lot of different plates and other things to set a table, so paper plates are perfect for me.  They are affordable and come in so many fun designs.  I did have some red snowflake plates from the dollar store that matched perfectly however. 
And then I found these glittery red deer ornaments at the Dollar Tree and grabbed a set for my table.  Aren't they adorable and perfect with the plates? 
I got the placemats and napkins on sale before Thanksgiving at World Market.  I do love red and stripes and grainsack anything.  The napkin has a monogrammed napkin ring and a red Christmas ornament.  It is sitting on top of a paper napkin that matches the paper plates. 
Nothing too fancy for the centerpiece.  An ironstone bowl is fulled with some red vintage Shiny Brites and sits on top of my barnwood box.  I added some silver Shiny Brites to my candle holder and lit the candles. 


My hutch has a buffalo check rag garland with a sparkly snow flake on the mirror.  I filled my trough box up with pretties and added a Christmas floral arrangement along with my stained trees.   

It's nothing fancy, but I love my sweet little table that I have set and that Cody and I will enjoy together on Christmas Eve! 
Oh, and I just had to share this story about my Uncle, who also just happens to be one of Santa's very special helpers! Click here to see for yourself!

I love your place setting, and also use paper plates. I can afford paper plates, and there are always so many pretty new patterns not found on china.

Merry Christmas,

Your table looks so pretty and oh so festive, Trisha! I love the glittery reindeer, and the shiny brites, too! I don't have many dishes either. I used to have Christmas plates, but got rid of them in our moves. Love your paper plates! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

The paper plates are darling! I like you love grainsack, so I adore the placemats and napkins. A friend gave me a gold deer like your red ones on my gift. Thanks for sharing with SYC. Hopping over to read the story.
hugs,

Adorable. I love buffalo check. I didn't make it to Dollar Tree. I have some those reindeer in silver and gold. I wish now I had. The place mat and napkins are wonderful. Thanks for sharing at Monday Social.
