I'll Be Blue Without You This Christmas

We don't want anyone to be blue for Christmas,
just your decor!
We aren't too blue, as we are on vacation with 
everything done at home, and I even had time
to set another table before I went.

I adore using non-traditional colors for holidays and you know
I love aqua for Christmas with much of my living room
in aqua, so I set this table in the dining room in aqua.

These crown plates are ones we often use for
Christmas because we have 24 of them, but
this year I had purchased the new white and
gold ones I posted about last week, so they
are for the Christmas Eve table.

The blue is just so regal and fun for a holiday table.

My pretty aqua napkin rings are elegant along
with the silverplated flatware and organza napkins.

There is a pale aqua crystal at the top of the napkin ring.

These are one of my aqua goblets, that I brought
home from Mexico.  I always plan to have a 
hard cover carry on so that I can bring home
breakables if I find them.

The table is set for six.

And it is all ready with Santa's sleigh.

Our Sir Galahad nutcracker stands guard at the table.
His soft blue and silver are perfect for the table.

Lovely aqua votive candle holders are used 
on the table too.

Sparkles and jewels always say
holiday magic to me.

And anything royal is perfect for

The beautiful aqua tree fills the center of the 
table, offering a dramatic centerpiece.

Our noble knight makes sure that everything is perfect.

And it is!

I hope all of your loved ones will be home for Christmas,
so no one is blue this year!  We just want a blue table
for Christmas.

I could sit at this blue table for years to come
as it looks so pretty with my Christmas decor.

May your days be Merry and Bright!
(And may all your Christmas shopping
be done!)

I will be posting this glorious aqua blue
Christmas table 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 is definitely one of the most beautiful tables you have done, Jacqueline. I love everything about it. Aqua is my favorite color for tablescapes, even though green is my favorite color.
    Hope you are enjoying your European vacation.

  2. What a gorgeous table! I don't have aqua in my decor, but I love seeing the homes of others with aqua. Thanks for sharing your Christmas beauty. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  3. You do know how to put on the glitz! Nontraditional always works for me as it is so unexpected.
