Traditional Christmas Table Setting

There are as many choices as there are people, but you can't go wrong with the traditional colors of this holiday table. Red napkins, a green boxwood garland, and white candles and china make this setting both traditional and beautiful.

The garland doesn't have to be boxwood. You can probably find something beautiful growing in your back yard. Put a pillar candle in a glass container and pile cranberries around it for the rich color. And sometimes you don't even have to bother with a table cloth or place mats. No need to spot clean Grandmother's table linens before you go to bed on Christmas night. Now, that's simple.
