Traditional Red Tartan Christmas

by  katrina

This week we are gearing up for our annual Christmas dinner with our extended family and I have decided to set a traditional red tartan Christmas table. It's casual in style but has a timeless feel that is sure to bring some nostalgic memories.

Gone are the days where red ruled in Christmas decor. If you have read my previous posts you know I don't have red in my living room or home office. I'm ok with that. Although I wanted to create a little WOW factor for our guests.

Whether you are hosting a formal evening with friends or a casual afternoon with family - red tartan is the way to go! We launched a full collection at Katrina & Co. this year. Simple greens expanded in the kitchen are just enough to be festive and marry the two spaces together.

Questions to ask yourself

  • The number of guests. You’ll want to arrange your seating so that your table is conversational. Ensure that you have enough seats for everyone.

  • What are you serving? This will help you pick your place settings and have every instrument you need to enjoy those yummy, festive recipes you’ve made!

  • Is it casual or formal? This is where setting the mood comes into play. You’ll want to set your table based on the formality of the gathering. When setting for a formal, evening event - you’ll want moody candles, classy place settings, and an elegant centerpiece. If it is a daytime event with family, you’ll want to add fun pops of color that will suit all ages.

Traditional Red Tartan Christmas

I chose our reclaimed wood candle holders to anchor the table. Adding our mini boxwood wreaths around the base adds an extra layer. Cedar garland draped down the center and mercury glass balls placed periodically are the perfect touch. I'm all about black and white so layering our patterned dishes was a fun touch. Using the tartan chargers creates a cheerful canvas for the rest of my holiday look. Boxwood cones in the center of each dinner plate finish the table.

  1. I love the plaid!! Found a red plaid tablecloth at a yard sale that fits perfectly on my long skinny oval table! Reminds me of my mom's from the 70's! I love it! It has a strand of gold in it so am using gold chargers and my solid white plates, white napkins and gold silverware that was from an estate! Something different this year! Just my husband and me and our 2 adult children but hey, it will be fun!!!
