Two French Christmas Tablescapes

If you’re new here and coming over from Sweet Chaos Home from the Blogger Stylin’ Home tours, WELCOME!

If anyone knows just a little bit about me, they know that I’m a vintage and french loving freak!  Okay, maybe not the freak part.  Ever since I was a teenager I’ve been obsessed with Paris/French decor/vintage decor/.  I love putting it all together and this year I’ve done it all up for Christmas!

In fact, today I’m going to show you two French tablescapes:  1) Christmas morning in the kitchen and  2) Christmas dinner in the dining room!

Ready for the tour?

Christmas Morning Tablescape

I recently made this grainsack tablecloth that I’ll be showing you next week how to make!

I’ve made some delicious cinnamon buns.  Help yourself to this pretty vintage french buffet in our kitchen eating area.

I love these plates and mugs I purchased at Pottery Barn a few years ago.  The large platter that says ‘peace on earth’ I use often as it doesn’t look too Christmas-y.

Now let’s move on to our second French Christmas tablescape…

 

Christmas Dinner in the Dining Room

I love these little Paris tree ornaments.  I’ve used them as individual place settings.

I’ve had this collection of Eiffel towers for years.  It’s usually in my bedroom but I brought it down to enjoy Christmas this year.

I made these napkins a couple of years ago and I really should show you how easy they were to make!

I’ve made them large enough to double as a placemat.

Did you spy the 7-Up Crate with evergreen and flocked twigs?  Yes, I moved it from the kitchen when you weren’t looking.

I love these silhouettes of my kids.

I added a little Eiffel tower ornament to that wreath on the mirror {naturally}.

Do you like my tomato cage Christmas tree?  I think it almost looks like the Eiffel tower.

I added some ‘jewelry’ to it and put it in my largest crock {because you know how much I love crocks!}.

I’ve recently painted my dining room and I love the colour: Horizon by Benjamin Moore.

We have such a large dining room that I utilized the space by the bay window for more seating.

I added a quaint little bistro set then dressed it up for Christmas.

It’s complete with an old crate, a Christmas in Paris book, and these twine Christmas trees I made last year.

    Your tablescapes are both gorgeous, Jamie! I absolutely adore your grain sack tablecloth (incredible job!) and those PB plates are so perfect! All the details you added are so pretty and if I had that 7-up crate, I would move him to whatever room I was in at the time…it is so cool! ;) Love it!

    Love your christmas home, so lovely with that touch of France.

    Hi Jamie, I am in love with everything in this post! How did I not know you were a fellow Francophile freak! I even have some of the same little Eiffel towers, including the bottle with the cork. I am featuring this post at my party tomorrow afternoon. Thank you! Happy New Year. -Karen
