Christmas Red and Navy Blue Table Setting

Monday, December 28, 2020

Inspiration for a colorful red and navy blue Christmas table setting this year came from beautiful fabric found in the Montmatre fabric district in Paris, France. Used as a tablecloth, the jewel tones of red and navy are the perfect setting for blue Fitz and Floyd china, red Fostoria glasses, and a collection of blue and red angels.

Deep navy stripes of soft velvet contrast with the lightweight sheer fabric. Four layers of the fabric are folded to cover the top of the table. One layer of fabric alone does not allow enough depth of the red and blue colors. 




Luxurious fabric sets the stage for a blue and red unmistakably Christmas table setting
The luxurious fabric sets the stage for a blue and red color combination that is unmistakably Christmas, yet not the traditional red with green colors.
