Holiday Place Settings....

I know I promised a post on that wonderful milkshake I drink every day, but I really wanted you all to see these before the holiday bustle kicks in next week! :-)

I am constantly perusing Pinterest.  I had stopped for a while...just like blogging and Instagram and did very well managing those addictions.  Unfortunately, I started looking again.  While Pinterest isn't necessarily a BAD thing...it is not a PRODUCTIVE thing. :-)

While scrolling around last week, I saw so many gorgeous place settings for the holidays, but these two really caught my eye...


I love the black plate in the middle of this setting... and all of the goldware....just gorgeous!  Who would have thought to use a black plate for a holiday place setting?  Not me, that's for sure.

For Christmas, I found this beauty...


Both of these are so simple and so elegant...what do you think?

    1. Simple and elegant work for me, I don't like having to "unmake" the fancy tables. Love looking at them, but don't want to pull it all together!

  3. Um. Not really a fan of the black. I like the other one. Now Pinterest can be productive. It's my #1 social media referrer, which means income!

    1. I like a lot of black/white combos and would like to try this set for next year. I have the goldware already. That is true for you, it definitely translates to income...a very good thing!

  4. Not a real formal person (shocker ;-0 ) so the second really appeals to me. It's fresh and crisp while Christmasy.

    1. LOL…you are too funny! I like both of them so much…they each appeal to a different side of my taste.

  5. Love Pinterest! 99% of my Pins are recipes. They are going to make cookbooks obsolete! NO!!!!

    I love the second place setting. I saw wood chargers similar to these at Pier 1. Hopefully they will go on sale. ;-D

    1. I would die if cookbooks became obsolete! I enjoy looking through my cookbooks to find new recipes and to relax while watching TV. Pier 1 has the coolest things and I love when they have a sale or when I get a gift card from there – hint to the hubster!!! :-)

  6. They would look great with those gold polka dot glasses you painted last year!

    1. Girl, you are so right..I forgot all about those since they are packed up in storage! They would work great with both place settings! I like the way you think! :-)

  7. I absolutely love the first setting, because...black ;) I think it is SO dramatic and has an "edge", you know?

    1. Black is one of my favorite colors…90% of the clothing in my closet is black. I do agree, it is dramatic and has an edge! I love the first setting for Thanksgiving and it could probably transition into Christmas….that black plate just makes such a bold statement!!

  8. I love them both and would use both, yes. I pin mostly from blogs I read, and that's where I spend most of my online time - reading blogs. :)

    1. LOL...I spend my time on Pinterest and reading blogs, but I do most of my pinning from Pinterest. I need to expand a little bit...LOL

    1. I agree, each has their own appeal...but I think I lean a little bit more to the black. :-)

    1. Hey girl!! How are you??! Yes, I’m finally back after all these months…hope all is well with you! I’m still playing catch-up!  I love them both also, but seem to like the one with the black plate a little better…has a little more edge to it!

  12. Benita,
    Both are stunning and beautiful in their own ways. I love the white with the touch of natural greenery and a deep shade of red.

    1. They are both so pretty and both have such elegance. Of course, you know me, I’m going to prefer the one that is most different…LOL…the black plate! :-)

  13. Beautiful tables...had to pin both tables settings... I know hubs would choose the black plate. My dream home would have a well-organized butler's pantry so I could change out table settings. xoxo
