Plaid in fashion…..
|One of my favorite pins ever! Love the colorful scarf against the camel coat.|
|I’m seriously in love with this coat! Why am I such a coat person when I live in Southern California???!|
|Tartain pants! Adorable.|
|Perfect casual winter day outfit! And those red wellies!!|

|Possibly the cutest porch scene ever! Perfection. Via Craftberry Bush.|
|Love the pop this plaid gives to this otherwise very neutral room. And how cute are those window shades?|
|Just lovely. Via Craftaholics Anonymous.|
|This is a tablescape I did recently using my new plates from Home Goods. The whole tablescape (with sources) can be seen here.|
|Via Better Homes and Gardens.|
|Again, just a touch of plaid in a neutral room can be very sophisticated.|
|Via Pottery Barn.|
|Beautiful! Via In Good Taste.|
|Just a touch in this room really pops. Via Pottery Barn.|

Neutral Holiday Tablescape featuring Silver and GreensI used a silver charger from Pottery Barn and mixed it with my everyday white plates. The small mercury candleholders I already owned, and I added the taller ones from Pottery Barn. I never feel like a table is complete without something natural, so I added greens clipped from my yard mixed with some I purchased. And of course, I had to add my favorite white hydrangeas! They are my absolute favorite flower, and I think they work in any season. I used a flax colored linen napkin and runner from Sur la Table. The runner is not available in this color anymore, but I found similar ones here, and here. And rather than use napkin rings, I decided to continue the natural theme and used a small piece of pine tree clipping and a little green frosted pinecone ornament tied to the napkin with twine. Similar pinecone ornaments here, here, here, and here. I love how it’s casual but elegant at the same time! The silver and green mercury ornaments that I layered over the greens were ones I bought from Pottery Barn a few years ago. I’ve included links for the exact items I used when possible, and I always try to find similar options if the original items are no longer available.
