Buffalo Plaid with a Touch of Silver Sparkle – Christmas Table Decor for Two

I love plaid in Christmas decorations. There are so many different Christmas variations and color combinations to choose, each as lovely as the next. You can only imagine my delight when earlier this year, sometime around mid-summer, I was at the thrift store, like you do – and found a pair of buffalo plaid place mats with silver sparkle accent running through the patter for just a few dollars.

As I’ve created all the different looks during my 2017 tablescape challenge, I’ve realized that while of course it’s easy to make beautiful tablescapes for four or more, sometimes it’s harder to make a table for two that is proportionate and appropriate, and honestly – making it look functional to some degree is hard as well.

As challenging as it can be to create a beautiful tablescape for only two, it is often very rewarding. I don’t have any hard numbers of couples who decorate or don’t decorate their table, or even just do a basic place setting, but I do know Pinterest, and there is not a lot of tables set for two floating around. But I’m happy to add mine into the mix!

Allow me to present to you my thrift store based buffalo plaid table decor with a touch of silver sparkle- a Christmas table for two.
