It’s a pleasure to gather with Friends over a simple holiday luncheon. I’m so happy you are here today to join me for this lovely little holiday luncheon tablescape.
You can see in the picture above that I have used my favorite holiday flatware. This was a Goodwill find and I am so happy to have found it. The flatware is made by Spode in their famous “Christmas Tree” pattern. The little Santa sits at the top of the tree on the enameled surface. The flatware rests on some thrifted plaid placemats that are made with a red and green plaid border. The placemats rest on a thrifted green tablecloth.
The matching china pieces are from Longaberger and present poinsettia and pine sprays on each of the pieces. A raised border in white accompanies the floral sprays that circle the rim. A red border circles the outside of the rim on each of the pieces. In this setting I am using the dinner plate, soup bowl and salad/dessert plate. The Longaberger was found in a consignment shop and purchased during a Christmas sale a few years ago.
Cotton napkins bordered in red and boasting a poinsettia flower in the corner are held by poinsettia napkin rings…all thrifted. I love how the poinsettia is repeated in all parts of the table setting.
Crystal stemware accompanies the setting. The water goblet is Waterford and the wine is a Mikasa, “Christmas Tree” pattern. Both came from Thrift Stores for very little money. The Mikasa pattern could also be paired with my everyday crystal by Mikasa.
A DIY floral arrangement from the garden was added to the table to give it a little more holiday feeling. The simple evergreens also added that wonderful pine scent. Here you can see an overview of the whole table looking towards the gallery wall.
I served a homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches with brie, sharp cheddar and apple slices. Then we had pumpkin pie for dessert. It was lovely to sit and chat with friends while enjoying a meal of old time comfort foods. The day was overcast and damp so comfort food was a really good choice.
You can set a lovely table for much less than retail prices if you are a frequent Thrift Store shopper. Wishing you all a very merry holiday season and may you find treasures on your next Thrift Store Adventure.

The flowers are poinsettias🙂
You are so right. I’ve had magnolia on the brain. Thanks for letting me know. I will correct it now. Have a great week.
Lovely table! I love tomato soup and grilled cheese. It is a combo made for dunking–if no one is watching!!! Your tablescape, as always, is beautiful!
thanks, Kathy. You have to love the old stand-by. We have been enjoying them for such a long time for a reason. Thanks for stopping by and sharing. Have a great week.
Love the subtlety of the poinsettia sprinkled across the settings. A warm and inviting table for sure!
Thanks Robin, I’ve had this one for a few years and have not seen it anywhere. It’s quite festive. Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays!
Beautiful table! It’s always so fun to see what treasures can be had at the thrift store. You are obviously a “master”! Merry Christmas!
Thrift Stores are filled with treasures from other lives. It’s always fun to uncover them. Merry Christmas!
