If you’re looking for a fun take on a traditional red and green tablescape, my red truck Christmas tablescape will be just what you need. Check it out in today’s post.

I found these darling red truck Christmas dessert plates a few years back in Cracker Barrel and instantly knew I had to have them! Sadly they were only there for a season but I’ve sourced some similar ones and linked them throughout the post and at the bottom. Just click on the images to get to the sources.
The Beautiful Plate Stack
I really mixed things up for the red truck Christmas tablescape! The red truck plates are a bit farmhouse-ish so I added in other elements that were similar to create this tablescape.
Since Cracker Barrel only had the salad/appetizer sized plates and didn’t have the dinner sized plates I paired the smaller plates with some red ones I already had to create this place-setting. I used a rattan placemat and an off-white scalloped charger with gold accents to complete the place-setting. To add some green into the mix, I added a solid green colored napkin under the salad plate. This is a good way to add the napkin into the place-setting and break up the colors between the plates. It’s also a good way to hide any wrinkles in your cloth napkins!
The Simple Accents
I also bought two of the matching red trucks at Cracker Barrel when I found the plates. I knew these would be perfect to place at the end of the garland centerpiece I used in the middle of the table. The only thing I wish I’d had to compliment the red trucks are some matching salt and pepper shakers. That would have been extra cute!
I also added some dark green throw pillows at the end of the table in my large dining chairs.
The Garland Centerpiece
I created this garland centerpiece for the dining table and added in pops of frosted greenery and red berry stems and frosted mistletoe stems. I also used frosted peonies and some pine cone picks in this wintery garland.
