Feast of the 7 Fishes Christmas Eve Table Setting

by Deanne
(New Jersey, USA)

The theme of my Christmas Eve table setting is the Feast of the 7 Fishes in a red and white color scheme.

My children made the 7 stars you see hanging above the table.

Tip: I found an excellent step-by-step video on how to make these Christmas Polish star ornaments on YouTube.

We made ours out of regular red and white gift wrapping paper and hung them on the chandelier above our table.

I arranged soup bowls and plates on red chargers and white placemats. I also bought reindeer napkin rings to hold the red napkins. I made the candy cane placecard holders by taping three candy canes together on their heads. Tip: I kept the candy cane wrappers on, but it is easier to tape together with the wrappers off (no slipping).

I dressed the chairs with red fabric, white ribbon and white twigs I bought from a craft and fabric store. Tip: Use a stretch fabric to wrap the chair tightly so it won’t fall off. I also bought red snowflake-shaped placemats to create the runner along the middle of the table. As the centerpiece, I used a brandy vase filled with water and floated cranberries and tea candles.

I’m looking forward to trying a new table theme next year! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

Thank you very much for sharing your Christmas Eve table setting, Deanne. It looks great, and your tips are much appreciated as well! Love those place card holders and the gorgeous red-and-white stars ... the centerpiece bowl looks wonderful, too!

I have vivid childhood memories of making exactly the same paper stars; ours were smaller, out of red and gold metal foil. We used them on our Christmas trees for years. (Great how-to instructions.) Thank you loads, and all the best for a fabulous New Year!
