Every year on Christmas Day, my family has a pretty casual breakfast — saffron buns and my mom’s famous Christmas bread by the tree. Later in the morning we sit down for a more formal brunch of eggs, bacon, and Monkey Bread (only my mom made this stuff before it was cool). This got me thinking all about Christmas brunch table ideas because I love a good table setting! 🙂 I’ve put together two different ideas — one for a more formal brunch, and one for an event a bit more casual.
First up is the more formal table. You’ll see that I used the dining table in the Brick Room (I showed you the table’s centerpiece in yesterday’s post).
I used a combination of my mother-in-law’s Lenox china and silverware, some gilded plates from Pier 1, and red chargers to keep things festive.
Gold-dipped pine cones and a small ornament ball add a little bit of glitz and fun.
I love the details on these little demitasse spoons. Champagne flutes are from Crate and Barrel. Stemless and simple!
Super obsessed with these Christmas tree plates, too. I love the pops of berry red!
Moving on to the more casual table…
I used Christmas-themed dishes for this table setting, as well as a layer of everyday dinnerware. Ruffled chargers, and everyday flatware.
I love using napkins like this on a table. The coffee cups match the middle layered plate, and the saucers match the Christmas variety. I just looped some faux greenery and set the coffee cup in the center. And added an ornament ball, because they are fun and add some color! 🙂
I think this setting goes really nicely with the centerpiece!
Which one is your favorite?
