HOORAY! I’ve been sneaking pics of this tablescape over on Instagram because I’ve been SO excited to share it with y’all and today’s the day! I have a strong affinity for all things monogrammed and vivid holiday hues so it was a delight to dream up this pink and red monogram Christmas tablescape! Not just any old monogram though, a vintage monogram from 1870! Read more about that below and the details on the fabulous party decor, from Shutterfly. Yep, plates included!
PARTY DECOR DETAILS
First up are details on the amazing plates, centerpiece decor, cards, coasters, trays, pillows….the list goes on! All of it came from Shutterfly! Every single piece. They have a growing list of items that you can personalize with your own designs. Whether that’s a photo OR a graphic, like I did! I just designed my photo files (.jpgs) in Photoshop and uploaded them for each design. For example, the plates are 10×10 so I created a 10×10 jpg in high resolution. I had full control over every single detail, which I loved! It was also super easy and fast shipping. I’m already envisioning a gorgeous New Year’s Eve tablescape!
I love a traditional Christmas theme, don’t get me wrong, but this year I wanted to spice it up with some hot pink! It has a Kate Spade feel to it that I love. The playful polka dots add lots of whimsy for this festive time of year. The files are from Cheeky Darling, love her collections! I used the photo cubes flipped upside down as a simple centerpiece with a touch of greenery. The ornament holiday cards made cute napkin rings and gift tags. Candles were the perfect favor for guests! It’s amazing how easy this monogram Christmas table was to pull together with a few click,clicks on Shutterfly!

Tip: Use a monogram like I did! Or pick a calligraphy font and type out your name for personalization or “Be Merry” or “Fa la la” or “Ho ho ho”. You get the idea! Below is an example of the .jpg file I used for the plates, see it below above the finished product! I’m so excited to use these year-round for fun celebrations! Wouldn’t children’s artwork be fun too? So many possibilities!
VINTAGE MONOGRAM DETAILS
Next are details about the vintage monogram! My husband is Chris and I’m Courtney so I chose a monogram that has 2 Cs and 1 W (for our last name). It came from an 1870 book of monograms. So neat, huh? I purchased the files from Vintage Monogram Designs, and I have LOVED using it for this monogram Christmas table. I can’t wait to create my own stationery too! I think this would be a great gift idea too. Give newlyweds a set of dishes with their new monogram, I know I would love that!
