A Blue Christmas Tablescape

It is going to be a Blue Christmas 
here this year, but hopefully not without anyone!

The cool aquas are so gorgeous and feel like
icy snow.

The table is filled with the gifts that will go under the tree.

This Blue Christmas tablescape was inspired by our
new Christmas tree that I posted.  Click here
to see the transformation.

It features these sparkly wise men and their gifts.

These lovely aqua goblets with twisted stems were new
purchases from Cabo when I went in June.

I love my crown plates and bowls.  I have chargers, dinner plates,
salad plates and bowls.  These were one of my big scores last
year during November from Home Goods.  I was able to find a set
of twenty four.  You can never find that many at our Home Goods so
I was thrilled.

Of course with this elegant of a table, I had to bring out
my beautiful flatware from Horchow that Mrs. Claus gave me
two years ago.  Click here to see that.


Sparkling square placemats are another Home Goods find.  They only
had a few last year, but I found seven more this year, so we are all set.

The jeweled chargers were on sale at Z Gallerie last year.
This color of aqua blue is my favorite blue.  

The table is covered with a pure white cloth.  It definitely
reminds me of a snowy scene.

Jeweled snowflake napkin rings are paired with
homemade aqua napkins.  They are so easy to make
in any color or fabric if you just serge the edges.

These pretty packages are ones that we will open
Christmas Eve.
I always wrap the Christmas Eve gift with a little more style.

A fun ornament makes a nice addition to a pretty gift.

The Wise Men help to remind us at this busy time
I will be posting with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. This might be might favorite tablescape of the season! The colors are my favorite and the whole thing makes my heart go pitter-patter!


  2. Wow, Jacqueline, this is just spectacular! I love the pretty, icy colors; and that flatware is amazing! You have created a truly beautiful setting!

  3. Everything so Beautiful!
    I can say that this is the Best Tablescape I've seen this Christmas.
    Congratulations Jacqueline!!! Do you have pinterest? I so wanted to have all these pictures in a new album "Favorite Tablescapes of All Time".
    Thank you so much for sharing!

  4. Oh I just LOVE this! I know 3 wise men who are about to get a makeover. :)

    May the peace and joy of the season be yours.

  5. I love the aqua and silver Jacqueline - who says Christmas has to be red and green! How lucky you were to get a set of 24 plates with the crowns, and the flatware matches nicely.
    The presents are wrapped so prettily, something I'm not very good at.

  6. Oh Jacqueline, this is so stunning! xo

  7. Your new blue tree and table decor remind me of the color of snow glistening in the sun. Very pretty!!

  8. Love your pretty color scheme this year Jacqueline! The table looks beautiful and look at you with wrapped gifts already:@)

  9. Such a beautiful tablescape. Love the aqua with the silver...Christmas ice! Lovely. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

  10. Wow Jacqueline, your table is stunning! I love the aqua with the silver touches. The placemats, chargers and napkin rings add just the right touch of sparkly goodness.

  11. This takes my breath away! Incredible!!

  12. That's one gorgeous table! Love it...


  13. Jacqueline, this is exquisite! I like the icy blue of your tree and your table. Your crown tableware is one of my favorites. Amazing that you found a service for 24! With your large family that will be well used. ;-)
    I like all the sparkly goodness of your Christmas!

  14. Such pretty colors for Christmas. It is all so icy and beautiful! Love the napkin holders and the wise men. Of course I love the Crown plates and the flatware. Maybe I will come up and take a peak at all this aqua that is glowing at your home. Joni

  15. Very, very pretty table! Love the blue with silver. That flatware is gorgeous!

    But now I've got Elvis singing in my head!

  16. Just the thumbnail took my breath away! Stunning. Dianne

  17. Magnificent, Jacqueline! Truly magnificent!!! Color me duly impressed to the nth power!!! I am a big lover of bling, and this table has enough of it to satisfy many times over. Even the Wise Men are blinged! Your flatware is probably the prettiest I have ever seen in all my days. They just have such a regal look about them. They appear to be substantially weighted, too, which really makes eating with them a treat! Gorgeous chargers...saw them at Z Gallerie! I like the stem of the glassware very, very, very much. I have this thing about how things FEEL in my hands as I'm dining. I'm weird...I know! :-) I can't believe you found 24 of ANYTHING at Home Goods! That's almost unheard of!!! Bravo! The napkin rings are really, really pretty and look perfect against the brilliantly-colored napkins. Fun centerpiece!!!

  18. This is so exquisite! Your table is gorgeous and it ties in with your pretty tree perfectly! Love the packages and everything!
    Thanks for popping in tos ee me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  19. Oh my goodness, what a beautiful table...I love everything about except one isn't in my dining room!

  20. Your table is stunningly beautiful! My mom always liked to decorate for Christmas with non-traditional colors, and I know she would love this. Thanks for the gorgeous eye candy! :)

  21. Your colors would be perfect in my dining room where traditional reds and greens just don't work. You always do a very eye catching least it catches my eye!

  22. As much as I love the reds and greens of Christmas I think I could be happy with these gorgeous icy blues and silvers!

  23. I've got to have those chargers!! Everything is gorgeous of course, but I have serious charger envy! The white china is fabulous too, I know you felt a rush when you were able to find so much!
    Thanks for sharing another beautiful table,

  24. This is absolutely stunning Jacqueline! It is probably a good thing that we don't have a Home Goods here.

  25. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! I am working on a tablescape with a similar feel...I am loving the silver mixed with soft blues, faint pinks and white....with lots of sparkle! It just excites me! Come link up to centerpiece Wednesday and share all your elegance.

    Ps are you still the stake YW pres? It seems I remember you posting something about this awhile ago??? I may need to pick your brain a little :)


  26. I always pray that I am wise enough to seek Him always, first and foremost.

    This is my favorite shade of blue, too. I ordered boots in Turquoise this year!! just love them. I could wear them sitting elegantly at your gorgeous table. The crown dishes (really 24? lucky you!!!) are perfect with the exquisite silver brought to you last year! I somehow knew I would see it. I wrap the Christmas eve presents with more panache, too. Just gorgeous!! I'm dreaming of an aqua Christmas.....
