SET A SENTIMENTAL TABLE
For this throwback table, lay down a lighthearted vintage print tablecloth. Choose one that will emphasize the cheery green of the jadeite dishes. At each place setting, stack a white dinner plate with a red-stitched rim, a scalloped-edge jadeite salad plate and a red cloth napkin with white stitched edging that echoes the simple stitch pattern on the dinner plate. Rest this layered assembly on a galvanized-metal charger. Help guests find their seats with charming little gift-wrapped packages and nostalgic Christmas tags as place markers.
