I’m using a new combination of dishes and linens for Christmas this year. I knew I wanted to use some blue so I played around with things until I settled on this. Here are the details.

- The tablecloth is actually a large piece of fabric I picked up at an estate sale. I’m using it with unfinished edges and all.
- Bordallo Pinheiro plates I bought at a resale shop in Naperville, IL. They are large enough that I use them as chargers. (There’s kind of a funny story about these.)
- My everyday Mikasa Antique White dishes. I got these because they are porcelain, which isn’t supposed to show marks from silverware the way stoneware does. So far, so good!
- Blue willow salad plates.
- Cotton hemstitch napkins (new to me this year and I loved the little button closure the stack came with).
- Mismatched silverplate pieces from an estate sale. (There was a whole box for something crazy like $1 apiece; I blogged about it here.)
- La Rochere glasses in the Fleur de Lys pattern. (The Napoleon Bee pattern is also very popular.)
- I’ve used mini salt and pepper shakers at every place for years now. No more having to pass the salt and pepper! I got this idea from my mom.
What’s your plan for Christmas dinner? Are you using old favorites for the table or trying something new?
