My Christmas Inspiration...Tartan

Happy Sunday to all of you! I've been looking forward to doing this post since October! Tartan is one of my favorite fabric patterns of all and every December the first thing I do to get in the spirit of Christmas decorating is pull out my Williams Sonoma tartan tablecloth and napkins. Since my home is based on neutral beach colors year round, these perfect pops of red add the right amount of Christmas cheer...  

I created this little collage to show you what's on my wish list at Williams Sonoma...

Below are a few images of the Christmas breakfast that I hosted last year. I wish I would have taken a picture of the whole table (it was set for 20) and it looked beautiful...if I must say so myself :) I made homemade Belgian waffles to order and my husband manned the omelet station. Needless to say we were stuffed with Christmas goodness and my husband and I agreed that we make a great breakfast team!

My famous buttermilk Belgian waffles...fresh strawberries, maple syrup, cool whip. 

Love pairing my tartan with these gorgeous coffee mugs I purchased from Williams Sonoma.

I picked up some delicious goodies from the French bakery in my neighborhood (literally people stand in lines just to get a delicious latte and almond croissant...oh and I'm one of them)

In case you missed it...
Tina from The Enchanted Home invited a wonderful group of bloggers to share two gift giving ideas for Christmas. Stop by to check out what I shared.

  6. Can I ask what you use to put all your favorite things from william sonoma? Is that a website you use to get all of those images on there?

  7. Hi Desiree!
    Oh how pretty your table looks! I love your collage -- how did you do that? I have done collages before but they end up boxy but yours is so much nicer. I think I could have that exact same wish list!

    Thanks so much for linking up with Favorites on the First!

  8. I love plaid and it makes for such a beautiful table. Great items on your wish list! Hopped over from Polohouse. Now a new followers.

  9. Love seeing your pretty tartan table. Breakfast for 20! That's a special event for certain. Your waffles look delish!
    Happy Holidays……….Sarah
