Tablescape Thursday~ Lenox Eternal Christmas..

Tonight I am sharing a table I did for a dinner party.

This is my Christmas china, Lenox Eternal Christmas.  I started collecting it around 2000, and Lenox discontinued it shortly thereafter..Bummer..

table 356


table 1466 


table 1455

Dark green linens, Waterfordtable 1462 crystal, gold and silver flatware, gold metal chargers, glittered box name card holders.

I ran a burgundy ribbon down the center, then a garland of pine cones.  I used fresh greens and baby’s breath, and some gold berries..

Burgundy votives..there is a burgundy tablecloth layered under the green

And that’s tonight’s table..

Please join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for all the other entries.table 1456

  1. Kathleen, I wish you had invited me to that dinner party but maybe I could have one of those cookies instead! Love the centerpiece of fresh greens and flowers running down the length of the table, perfect for not obstructing sight lines and I'm sure it smells so Christmas-y. That Eternal Christmas china is beautiful, no wonder you are bummed at it being discontinued - I even love the name of it! Hope things are well with you and you are getting all your Christmas chores done! I'm taking a break tonight but have lots to do!


  2. You are so Glam, Kathleen ! Those dishes are very very pretty ! When
    I saw the wreath picture I ever did she hang that up in mid air ??? Then I realized it was the mirror - isn't
    that funny ?? Such a polished table and fancy dancy - love it !

  3. Lovely and elegant. The low centerpiece is great! Wish I had been at that dinner party!

  4. Your room is gorgeous and your table is just breathtaking. I love your Christmas China, it is so pretty. Your centerpiece with the fresh greens, babysbreath and pine cones is so pretty, and I love that it is low enough for all the guests to visit each other. Such a beautiful table. I hope you are having a Blessed Christmas Season. Hugs, Marty

  5. K, your table is stunning...everything looks so nice against the dark green tablecloth, especially the gorgeous china. Really nice centerpiece. The fleur de lis napkin rings are adorable.

  6. What a beautiful pattern - festive and so elegant! Another fantastic job! Anyone would love to be invited to sit at your gracious table!

  7. Your table is absolutely gorgeous, Kathleen! I love that Lenox pattern.

  8. Your table is gorgeous, Kathleen! The Lenox is a very pretty. Too bad it was discontinued!

  9. It is gorgeous, I love the rich gree of the tablecloth. I used my Lenox this week too and so as I look at yours, I think how wonderful it would look with mine! There really is nothing prettier...of course you can't beat Waterford crystal either. I love this one.


  10. Kathleen, I always knew you created magic with your table arrangements, but I didn't know you could make things levitate...
    ...Your festive floating wreath is just right for the season, as is the beautiful table, and of course, the gingerbread people.

  11. Kathleen, this is one of my favorite tablescapes ... I love the Lenox Eternal Christmas ... too bad they discontinued it. What I remember most is the wreath ... You had to explain to me that the wreath was on a mirror. Even knowing that, the pic still amazes me.

  12. Your table is gorgeous, Kathleen. I have Lenox china also and am sorry to know that their lovely Christmas pattern is no longer in production. I have a pattern from the 40's and it's impossible to replace or add anything.

  13. Kathleen...HOW BEAUTIFUL!! Your table looks so rich on that gorgoeus green! Your guests must have felt very sepcial to dine at such a table :)

    Christmas Blessings!

  14. Kathleen the centerpiece is so perfect. Not too tall, not wide. It must have smelled fabulous too.
    Your guests must have been feeling so privileged to be there at such a stunning table.

  15. Beautiful as always Kathleen. I agree with Lori, the centerpiece is just beautiful,and the fleur de lis napkin rings are stunning.

  16. Kathleen, it is stunning! Do you have those flowers in something, or are they just stuck in there? Love that long, low centerpiece. Your china is gorgeous. laurie

  17. Just beautiful girl your table and your home...Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful eye candy...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  18. Gorgeous Table Kathleen.
    Your centerpiece, the dark green and Gold accents make a stunning statement.
    Of course I'd have a 'hissy fit' knowing those dishes were discontinued!

    I'm sure your guests felt so honored sitting at that table...I know I would.
    I guess my invite got lost in the mail!

  19. Kathleen,
    You do the best tables my dear! I am so loving that Christmas china, in fact I think it might be the most beautiful ever! The table centerpiece is gorgeous! You made that? And the wreath too? Your amazing! Can I come for dinner? Love it! Cindy

  20. Kathleen, that is one of my favorite Christmas tables. I think the tablecloth provides a gorgeous background - love the two tones of green. Beautiful china...why do they discontinue good things? Linda

  21. G'day Kathleen ~ Exquisite inviting decor. Love that wreath ... such beautiful detail you have presented.

    Merry Christmas, TTFN ~ Marydon

  22. Such a beautiful, elegant table. I happen to love green and gold together. Did that at our Historical Christmas Dinner where I work at an old Fort/Military state park. Not as pretty as yours but it was also Historical. We used what grows naturally here and then added only ornamens and things that are era appropriate. wish I had your talent for doing this.

  23. This is gorgeous! I love your dishes and stemware. The green is stunning!

  24. Wow. Kathleen! How gorgeous! Is that the Traymore Waterford pattern? You make such a festive table!

  25. Your table is gorgeous, Kathleen! I really love the Lenox, I'm sorry it was discontinued. Do you have a lot of the pieces?

  26. forgot to say I love the cookies. I'd be spelling dirty words :)

  27. Kathleen, I am rushing around like a chicken with its head cut off! LOL I need to clean the study before Mr. and Dan get home from the airport, but I had to make a quick visit! I love this dining table, with its green linens and gorgeous Lenox china. The garland and baby's breath is just elegant. I so love visiting all your pretties...
    Hope all is well. It's dreary and rainy here. Had a very good day so I was productive and got some decorating done. I don't think I'll get the last tree up. Oh well. There is always next year. Take care, my friend.
    hugs, Sue

  28. Kathleen, I've never seen this pattern before...I love it! They shouldn't have discontinued's gorgeous! Your tablescape is the wreath on the mirror. :-) I'm ready for Christmas again...shoot, it's just February! ;-)
