The Holiday Season is here and with that comes entertaining. This year, I’ll be hosting Christmas Eve and my sis will be doing Christmas Day. We switch off each year as for the past 2 years, we’ve been going to Colorado for Thanksgiving. So, this year, I’ll be doing a Pasta Bar for Christmas Eve with salads and other appetizers. I’m going to share some ideas that I’ve used for my Christmas Tablescapes in the past. I do love an elaborate table with lots of layers and stuff. But I also love a very simple look. I’ll be sharing both. So, let’s get to it.
Sugared Fruit Tablescape
This year, I found two amazing Waterford Christmas swags at Goodwill. They are so gorgeous! They were my inspiration for my whole nostalgic Christmas theme this year. I added them both down the center of my table…end to end. Then I added candlesticks in gold and crystal with different colored candles. I added some fairy lights and battery votives, as well. I used my everyday dishes and some dishes I thrifted from Goodwill. I really love how it turned out. I did end up simplifying it for everyday use by using only one swag in my dough bowl.
Here is a very simple idea that you can change to fit your decor. I layered my trusty large dough bowl over a piece of chiffon fabric, and completely filled the bowl with burgundy and red ornaments. I used all plastic ornaments if varying sizes. I added some gold candlesticks for some ambience. You can literally use any color of ornaments that fits your decor. You could even use multicolored ornaments. The possibilities are endless!
Candy Cane Table
If you want something really fun, this is it! I found these red and white candy cane trees a while back and they looked perfect on my Candy Cane Table. I used red and mercury glass trees with some greenery. I added candy canes in white dishes and a candy cane on each place setting. I love the glass elements with the red and white stripes…screams classic Christmas to me.
If you’re more into Neutral Christmas decor, try using just greenery. You can use real or faux. Just be prepared, if you use real, it’s gonna be messy. I mixed in greenery with silver ornaments in my dough bowl. I added varying greens and a small Christmas tree for a bit of drama. I used 3 wreaths and some candles for a very simple look.
I hope you found some inspiration for your next Tablescape…whether it’s for a large Holiday gathering or an intimate family party. Let me know in the comments if you prefer an elaborate tablescape or a simple one. You know I love to hear from you!
Until next time Treasure Hunter!
