Last night I pulled out a new-to-me Christmas tablecloth and draped it across the dining room table.
I’m tempted to use some goofy eBay description like “perfect except for” or “nearly mint”, but it’s neither perfect or mint. The fabric isn’t crisp so it’s been washed at least once in the past, but boy, the gold areas have so much texture they’re almost crunchy.
Yep, there’s more!

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:
The colors are even better in person
Yep, there’s lots more!

Ho ho! Merry Christmas!
Our house will be full of family this holiday season, so we’ve decided to pull out a different vintage tablecloth every day. Last night I set the table for brunch. Only four of us will be sitting down to French toast and Mimosas:
At the moment all is calm, all is very bright! I love the twisted candy cane border on the tablecloth.

Last week I found a wonderful candlestick thing that I HAD to use with a vintage Christmas tablecloth. Don’t they look great together? Especially with matching red candles.
Of course the candles DRIPPED! What was I thinking?!
Fortunately for me, this tablecloth can be rescued. Here’s how to do it:

What a great display! Everything pops against that green door.
Yes, yes, I KNOW it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. But at November’s Sage Farm show, there were a few corners that looked a lot like Christmas.
I snapped some photos of red & green. Take a look!
What are you waiting for?
