Table Setting Ideas for Christmas

I love the idea of having a fun Christmas table. Where you can add old and new pieces. I partnered with Shutterfly and made a fun Christmas table setting! 

Instead of buying napkin holders, I wanted something a little different so I chose photos gifts to show where my guests need to sit. Shutterfly has so many fun gifts you can personalize and I used key chains and ornaments. I loved the idea of something different as a napkin holder and it's a gift that your guest can keep! 

These little keychains are so cute and really great quality! Ornaments are another fun item to use as napkin rings. There were so many fun options to choose from I had a hard time picking my favorites!

I've always wanted polka dot plates but I've never found a pattern or price that I liked. Well I was able to make them and it was so easy! Shutterfly has a custom option for plates and I made my own pattern and uploaded it to the Shutterfly site. I couldn't wait to get them in the mail and use them!  I paired them with some Christmas plates I found at a thrift store and it just added a little fun to our Christmas table.

I also made these Buffalo Check Placemats. I made my own design and uploaded it to the Shutterfly site. It was so simple and easy. We have been using them everyday and they are even kid friendly. Just wipe them down when they get dirty.  We have been using these daily and I love them so much! You can dress them up or just use them for your everyday. 

Paired with the polka dot plates it just makes me smile! The best part is I will be able to use these all year round and put different pieces with it. Orange for Halloween, Red for Valentines day, etc. 

How do you like to decorate your table setting for the Holidays?

Somewhere in my Memory- Christmas Print

This post contains affiliate links.

One of my favorite Christmas movies is Home Alone. I watched it growing up with my grandparents, cousins, sister, aunts and uncles gathered around and it will always remind me of my family being together.

The music of Home Alone  is spectacular. I've already talked a little bit about my love of John Williams, but again, Home Alone and Home Alone 2 are such fun movies- but the music really takes it to the next level. I bought the Home Alone soundtrack a few years ago and it continues to be a staple in our home to listen to at Christmas time. Now my 7 year old son loves watching the movies with us and talks about Kevin like we know him haha. :)

I love the song- Somewhere in my Memory. The words from the song I chose to make into a print are:

Somewhere in my memory
Christmas joys all around me 
Living in my memory
All of the music, all of the magic
All of the family, 
home here with me.

If you aren't familiar with the song, you can listen to the whole song here. This print would make such a wonderful gift idea for friends and family or display it in your home during the Holidays. 

Easy Cheesy Potatoes (Funeral Potatoes)

This is one of my all time favorite recipes! We love this for holidays, cold days, and all through out the year. Its especially a favorite for Christmas time.

They are also known as "Funeral Potatoes" in the lds community. We always called them cheesy potatoes at our house and I don't even think I knew that they were the same as funeral potatoes until I got older! haha!

There are lots of different versions of this recipe but this is my families favorite way to make it.

Cheesy Potatoes
1 (32 oz.) Package Hashbrowns (Thawed)
4 Tbs butter (melted)
1 (10 oz.) can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup Sour Cream
2 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
1/4 cup onions (optional)
2 cups cornflakes (optional)

1. Place hash browns in a bowl and mix in melted butter, cream of chicken soup, sour cream and cheese. Add a bit salt and pepper.
3. Place into greased 9x13 pan. (I like to add a little more cheese over the top)
2. Bake at *350 for 45 minutes or until potatoes are cooked. 

Enjoy! These potatoes are such a nice side dish and we love having it with our Christmas meal! Ham and potatoes- yum!
