Fiesta de Navidad

I recently found myself hosting a Christmas Supper but lacking inspiration for the table.  While I love my traditional Spode Christmas china it can be a bit….well, boring.  So naturally I did what every person looking for inspiration does these days….I went to Pinterest.

I found this old Southern Living post that talked about updating your Christmas table and I loved the mix of patterns and textures with the traditional place setting.  I rented a leopard print table cloth, layered with some mesquite wood chargers that are oh-so-South Texas and then finished the table with cherry red napkins for a pop of color.

The acrylic chavari chairs add a modern feel without weighing down the space.  I choose a simple white hydrangea centerpiece with a few Christmas holly sprigs.

Last but not least, I used my green Mexican glassware.  I love these glasses!  I use them whenever I can and they folded in to a Christmas pallet perfectly.

After dinner the girls in this group give each other small gifts and since South Texas is my jam I wanted to find something local to give.  I’ve been wanting a Bangle and Babe bracelet key ring for awhile and I figured if I’ve wanted one then others would probably enjoy receiving one!  I popped into Thirteen & Market (a great gift shop that opened a storefront in August) where I could choose from every color of the rainbow.

Nikki at Thirteen & Market wrapped them up for me in a jiffy…

And just like that I was armed and ready for my Fiesta de Navidad!  Three cheers for these two local South Texas business owners that made gift giving easy–thanks, gals!
