Robin Wreath Christmas Tablescape

Christmas is a season for color and light, whether casual or elegant. We especially enjoy combining elements and incorporating nature into tablescapes and decor schemes. This Robin Wreath dinnerware set by Spode is a new favorite, and we had a lot of fun picking out the right pieces to accompany it. The set offers a delicate charm with touches of vibrant color.

Bright and festive with shades of red and green. The 12 Days of Christmas Waterford flutes makes an appearance every year. We will them with cider (this year, apple-cranberry), but they work equally well for any beverage of your choosing. I bought these two at a time, each year they released a new pair starting in 2005. Ten or twenty years from now, they'll still grace our Christmas tables.

The centerpiece draws on the reds, greens, and whites from the tablecloth and dishes. The floral tablecloth is Ralph Lauren fabric. We love mixing florals with other patterns, especially plaids and stripes. For the napkins (Potterton Hill), we went with something different in a simple leaf pattern that makes a nice statement.

Like most of the table settings we share, they can be used for either a breakfast or dinner meal. We opted for Eggs Benedict with cider and a side of fruit. Simple, filling, and delicious. Hollandaise sauce is not often made in our house, because while delicious, it's very rich. Of course, I made it often while in culinary school, which is why I subscribe to the Le Cordon Bleu method.

My version of hollandaise uses a bit more lemon juice, cayenne, and salt than the traditional recipe. I like a lot of flavor, but I also like to temper the butter taste so no flavor overpowers another. We recommend finding the method that best suits you, and perfecting it to your tastes.
