A Christmas tablescape in an open concept using traditional Christmas colors. mixing pine, eucalyptus, gold and mercury glass decor.
One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to set the table. It’s the center of my living space since it’s so open. I try to keep it clean and simple yet festive. This year’s Christmas tablescape is using traditional Christmas colors and mixing pine, eucalyptus, gold and mercury glass.
Now I always celebrate Christmas big even in my small 2 bedroom ranch. I am a firm believer that you don’t need a huge house to celebrate and decorate big. Read about how I have a big Christmas in a small house, here.
Today myself and some of my favorite home decor bloggers are sharing our Christmas tablescapes. Make sure you stick around until the end to see their gorgeous table settings.
This Fall I saw a tapered candle stick centerpiece at a local shop, Fiori, and knew that I had to have it for my Christmas table. I loved that the tray could be decorated for every season. I got faux pine, red berries and dried orange floral picks from Michaels and intertwined them between the candle sticks.
How to create a tablescape
When I decorate my table I like to use a table runner to ground the objects that I showcase on it. I chose a red table runner with playful pom poms on it. I got this last year at Target. The red ties into the my main Christmas tree this year along with the rest of my Christmas decor which leans more traditional this year.
Now I always love to keep things on budget. So I like to use things I’ve had from previous years like this table runner and the green glass bud vases. I even incorporate every day white plates but add a gold charger to elevate them. Now you don’t need to spend a ton of money on chargers. Especially if you are going to switch them out every season. These chargers are from dollar tree.
The colors of this table scape reflect traditional Christmas colors that are not only being used on my main tree but also the shelves and accessories around the living room and kitchen. Red was the main color that I pulled in with the accent color of green and gold.
Now a Christmas dinner would not be complete at my house without a themed cocktail. This Christmas I will be making these Christmas margaritas. They are a huge hit every time I make them and bonus they even match the decor! I like to serve them in festive Christmas glasses. These are vintage glasses I found a few years ago at a yard sale and they are my all time favorite.
The final touch to my Christmas tablescapes is to add a fresh element. Now I had some fresh eucalyptus from Trader Joes. TJ’s is a great place to find inexpensive florals. I clipped a few pieces and added them to bud vases and a top the plates. You can also gather pine, evergreen, or red berries from outside and add them to a vase and make an arrangement or even do a live floral table runner.
I hope this gives you some tablescape ideas for Christmas. Make sure to check out 4 other Christmas tablescapes below.
