Gathering for Christmas
Tablescapes are one of my very favorite things to decorate. Something about a clean table…like a fresh canvas for an artist. Sometimes I like to experiment, try some out-of-the-box ideas. Once in awhile, I take a step back to the basics. I rarely purchase new items for my tablescapes, but rather mix and match what I have to create different looks. At Christmas time, I find myself drawn to the classic, timeless looks. A little elegance, a little whimsy, a little simplicity, but always Christmas greenery
For this Christmas tablescape, I started with combining faux cedar and eucalyptus garlands down the middle of the table. I didn’t have quite enough cedar garland left, so I used gorgeous, faux cedar branches.
After building a lush and festive base on my farmhouse table, I created my place settings. These vintage brass chargers from Rehab Vintage Market are a favorite for this time of year and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably see them in several more Christmas and New Year’s tablescapes!
These mini stockings were a sweet purchase from my friend Mara at Dreamy White Lifestyles a few years ago. By creating an otherwise simple tablescape, I allowed the stockings to be the statement piece and focal point for each guest. While these are no longer available, I’ll link up some similar looks for you here:
As you’re planning your Christmas menus and putting the finishing touches on your Chrismtas décor, I hope these tips give you a little inspiration to create your own tablescape art. Whether it’s for guests or your own family, each one will feel special as you create a gathering space with love.
