A Colourful Christmas Table!
Hi friends! Thank you for coming to visit me today! I’m so lucky to have you here! I wanted to share some good news and a Christmas Table with you today!
Recently I had the amazing opportunity to work with Canadian Tire, where they featured my Colourful Christmas Table in their on-line Christmas catalogue! SO exciting!! My table was included with 3 other amazing bloggers tables: Kerri from A Pop of Pretty, Shannon & Dean from AKA Design, Jennifer from Rambling Renovators.
This was SO incredibly exciting to me…I can’t even tell you. As a Canadian, I grew up with Canadian Tire…I remember many a Saturday afternoon in their stores with my Dad. I remember buying school supplies there, and many other things Dad’s buy. So many fond memories! So to be featured by them, was really quite amazing for me (and for my Dad too)!
For this project I was sent a box of Christmas ornaments, decorations, linens and dishes so that I could put together a Christmas table setting…whoa…fun! And I couldn’t believe my luck when I opened up all my goodies and saw that they all matched the colours that I already use in my holiday decor! So putting together this table was easy peasy for me.
Warning…picture overload…but I just couldn’t help myself. 😉

Hopefully you can find a little inspiration for your holiday table.
I started off with a gorgeous Cuisinart table cloth which was the perfect snowy white backdrop to my colourful table!
Then I used a pre-lit evergreen garland as my centrepiece/runner, and added some ornaments to make it festive.
I love the earthy greenery with the pretty coloured ornaments and twinkly lights.
Then I added the Living Quatro Dinnerware Set to my holiday table. These beautiful dishes bring a crisp and contemporary look to my holiday table.
They’re also the perfect backdrop for adding some fun! I wanted each table setting to look like a little wrapped present, so I tied them up with some pretty matching ribbon, then added an ornament as a take-away gift for my guests. So fun!
I added some trendy stemless wine glasses and gorgeous Living Chelsea flatware, and the table is set…now we just need the turkey!
Oh, but I didn’t stop there! For a festive touch I filled a Living Quatro bowl with matching ornaments, and hung a few sparkly snowflakes on the wall.
And you can’t forget the crackers…every holiday table needs crackers! I mean, it’s not a holiday gathering without those paper crowns is it?!
Sparkly. Colourful. Festive. Fun. Just what the holidays ordered!
The holiday season is the perfect time to have fun with your decor. Bring out the sparkly, and be colourful and fun…anything goes this time of year! I really love this table setting, and I hope you do too! It’s cheery and festive and perfect for a holiday gathering!
Thank you so much to Canadian Tire for this opportunity! I loved putting my Christmas table together and loved all the products I was sent to make this happen!
Wow, what a beautiful table setting! Congrats on being featured in the Canadian Tire online catalog, that is so great 🙂
Thank you Becki!!
Looks fabulous! Congrats on getting work with Canadian Tire…I, too, remember so many trips there with my Dad back when it was more of a man’s store…nowadays – it’s my favourite store for decorating and so much more!!
Thank you Cheryl! I have such great memories of being a kid in there with my Dad…love it then, and love it now!
Your table turned out so fun and colourful! I love your idea of wrapping the plates like a gift. It was great being featured in the Canadian Tire magazine with you! P.S. I’m jealous of all your natural light in your dining room 😉
Thank you Jen! Getting these pictures was a bit of a challenge in October with no snow outside! Thankfully we do have some good lighting…love your dining room by the way…what a great space!
WOW! Congratulations on your big Canadian Tire promotion. And not a wonder they included you with some of these other fab bloggers; you have done an amazing job.
Thank you Meredith! 🙂
Jo-Anna I swear you are like the Canadian version of Martha Stewart. And frankly, you take better pictures! Congrats on the feature!
Hahahaha, I don’t know about that, but what a compliment! Thanks Mallory!
Very pretty! What luck you ended up with the same colors you were already using. 🙂
Thanks Catie! I couldn’t believe my luck that they matched everything!
I adore it Jo…you did an outstanding job with this…xoxo

Your talent never ceases to amaze me! When I grow up one day I’ll have a dining table to make a runner like that on too. 😉
Thank you Alex! You my friend are an amazing talent…I love your style!!
Simply gorgeous! Canadian Tire must have done their homework…finding you was genius on their part! I love how every single store across this country smells exactly the same!! Ha! Silly, but somehow comforting.
Aw thanks Lori! Isn’t that so funny about the smell?! I know exactly what you mean, lol!!
Great colours they sent you – they make such a pretty festive table. I love the plates set like presents.
Thank you so much Grace!
Jo-Anna I love your table and all the bright colors! It goes with my current colorful christmas tree theme I have this year!
Thank you Katie! I love these colours…I don’t usually have them around except for at Christmas and I love how bright and cheery they are!
You did an amazing job! I absolutely love the runner/garland arrangement. It’s brilliant!
Thank you Heather!
That looks so amazing! And a pre-lit garland? That’s exactly what I need.
So bright and cheerful! Congrats on being featured – Canadian Tire is truly an iconic name.
Breathtaking! I love all the colours and the polka dots are adorable. What time is dinner served at your place 😉
Canadian Tire is my favourite company. Ever. I have lots of fond memories going with my Dad as well. Thank you so much for sharing.
