On Christmas Day I always prepare a formal dinner with china, silver, and crystal in the dining room. However, on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, our immediate family celebrates around the kitchen table. This is always a fun table to decorate because, since it’s a more Casual Christmas Table, I can afford to play around with different inexpensive dishes and accessories.
As usual, the color scheme of my Christmas decor is red, red, and more red. And since the decor in my family room and kitchen consists of a good deal of black, each year my Casual Christmas Table includes a lot of red and black elements.
Casual Christmas Table
While I am more or less locked into a holiday color scheme that includes black and red because of my home decor, that doesn’t mean I have to set the same table every year. A Casual Christmas Table offers an excellent opportunity to play with different dishes and styles. So, try something new this year and have a very Merry Christmas around your table!

Merry Christmas, Lisa! Your casual Christmas tablescape speaks my language, the language of always beautiful, glorious, delightful RED. Your eye lends the perfect balance of design, color and fun! Thank you for sharing your table and your other Christmas posts that have quickened my heart even more in this happy season.
Thank you so much for your kind comment. I really appreciate it and am so glad you have enjoyed my Christmas posts. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I like it without flowers, too. Put some on your sideboard, if you must. I love that cardboard tree; it’s evocative of those folded tissue paper centerpieces we used to have for holidays when we were little (which I loved), but more modern and classy. 🙂 Merry Christmas!
Thanks, so much for your kind comment. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
Wow–you have such a great eye! I particularly love the tiny reindeer– festive w/o being overly kitschy. Happy holidays!
Thanks so much for commenting. Happy Holidays to you!
No flowers needed with so much else going on. Very fun!
