Can you sing all the verses of “12 Days of Christmas”?
Let me give you a hint.
There are partridges in pear trees and five gold rings and turtledoves and lords a-leaping and french hens.
When I was little it was one of our family traditions—singing the entire song from start to finish and remembering all of the things our true love was going to bring us over the holidays.
And all these years later…
….I am all about a drummer drumming.
After all, remember the Angry Lemons?
If you are like me and you are all about the ladies dancing and geese and swans that swim and the 12 days of Christmas.
I have the perfect table setting for you (and a few other Christmas decorating ideas, too).
This is our Christmas dining room.
It’s all about red and white sprinkled with twinkle lights and blue stripes.
And it was inspired by these dishes.
Aren’t these amazing?
This set is from Better Homes and Gardens and Walmart.
And it’s SO AFFORDABLE.
You can see the entire set here.
Each of the salad plates is different.
There are four plates with three of the 12 days on it.
Here are the four calling birds and the five gold rings and the six geese a-laying.
And here are the seven swans-a-swimming.
And the eight maids a-milking.
And the nine ladies dancing.
(total aside: are you singing along with me as I type?)
The 12 days of Christmas set also comes with four large dinner plates that look like this.
The days are all around the rim and the center has a calligraphy font with the “twelve days of Christmas.”
It also has four bowls with this font and the days around the rim.
You can see the entire set here.
Here are just a few tips for an easy Christmas table:
- Create a centerpiece with a sled and ornaments (EASIEST centerpiece ever). Make sure you scatter a few ornaments around for added color.
- Layer your Christmas plates and add a candy cane and a sprig of greenery.
- Add an ornament with each person’s name on the plate for Christmas.
- Mix up your linens. I added this runner (the runner is reversible) and these napkins and these placemats.
- Fill the air with the scent of Christmas. These are two of my favorite (super affordable) candles here and here.
Here are just a few things I added to the rest of the room.
But the star of the show?
The 12 Days of Christmas and all their friends. That set is amazing and it looks so high end. I would order asap or run to a Walmart near you before the lords and ladies and gold rings are gone.
I also thought that these holiday mule mugs (they come in a set of four) would look so cute with the table, too.
I keep them in my coffee station (you can see that here).
And you can see the entire set here.
Also, here’s a sneak peek of my family room.
I decorated the mantel with these flickering light candles that look SO REAL. They are battery-operated on double-A batteries and come in different sizes.
Decorating for Christmas makes me so happy.
I have the Christmas music at full volume and the candles burning and a movie going in the other room and Christmas coffee.
A drummer even shows up to make my Christmas a little brighter. 🙂
I am so happy and honored to be part of the BHG Live Better Influencer Network at Walmart.
