On the third day of Christmas: more vintage Christmas tableclothsPosted: December 27, 2014
This year our house is full of family so we’re splattering vintage tablecloths with gravy, cranberry sauce (and worse) at every meal. Want to see the fabric casualties? Of course you do! First up, a vividly colored tablecloth festooned (no one ever says this word in real life!) with poinsettias and holly garlands:
I used to be a matchy-matchy purist and only use the snowflake china with a jadeite green tablecloth I’d dyed to match. This year anything goes. This is life, not a magazine shoot.
It went off to the laundry and got replaced with this one:
I like the way the iridescent Federal Moonglow plates stand out against the dark green.
This time I remembered the vintage Christmas tumblers.
So far it’s fun, but that’s probably because I haven’t started washing and ironing. Will I make it through all twelve days of Christmas? Stay tuned!
