24 Christmas Table Settings

Posted by on December 12, 2012 in Christmas, Holidays | 0 comments

This is a little deviation from my normal posts, but I wanted to share the beautiful and creative place settings that were at our women’s event at church! Each woman decorated and set a table with a theme of their choosing. The whole room was  a Christmas wonderland! Hope these pictures might give you some ideas. I couldn’t cut out some of the room background. Hope you understand!


Red & White Table Theme

 

In between the red balls is cellophane lit with submersible LED lights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I included the sled used on my coffee table! Last year this was my centerpiece with red dishes and red sleds as napkin rings.

All the decorations become unimportant in light of the real reason for Christmas. I’ve included a cute version of I Corinthians 13.

CHRISTMAS STYLE
 

If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, 
strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, 
but do not show love to my family, 
I’m just another decorator.

If I slave away in the kitchen, 
baking dozens of Christmas cookies, 
preparing gourmet meals 
and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, 
but do not show love to my family,
I’m just another cook.

If I work at the soup kitchen, 
carol in the nursing home and give all that I have to charity, 
but do not show love to my family, 
it profits me nothing.

If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, 
attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir’s cantata 
but do not focus on Christ, 
I have missed the point.

Love stops the cooking to hug the child.

Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the husband.

Love is kind, though harried and tired.

Love doesn’t envy another’s home 
that has coordinated Christmas china and table linens.

Love doesn’t yell at the kids to get out of the way.

Love doesn’t give only to those 
who are able to give in return 
but rejoices in giving to those who can’t.

Love bears all things, 
believes all things, 
hopes all things,
endures all things.

Love never fails. 
Video games will break, 
pearl necklaces will be lost, 
golf clubs will rust. 
But giving the gift of love will endure.

Which one was your favorite?

I didn’t have just one favorite as I loved them all!

Merry Christmas!
