Tis’ the season to deck the halls, as well as your table! Below I’m sharing 10 Christmas tablescapes and place settings I’m loving.
This past week has been crazy busy. The holiday rush is in full force! I pretty much spent all of my time wrapping up things at work, and wrapping presents for family & friends. But Day 10 of 12 Days of Entertaining with Grace is finally here!
There are so many ways you can do to add cheer to your Christmas table – whether it’s with greenery, DIY place cards, or festive napkins! I love changing our table up every year and trying to something new.
Below I’m sharing 10 of my favorite tablescapes & place settings I came across on Pinterest to help give you some ideas on where you can start with decorating your table!
1. Lush green wreaths with candles
These amazing wreaths made of pine & evergreen stems, adorned with berries, branches and bells can be bought on Etsy and make the perfect centerpiece! You can also make them on your own if you’re feeling crafty! I love the plaid bow – and that the candles give the centerpiece some height, but make still make it easy to talk with the person across from you.
2. Rustic Black & White Table Setting
I have to be honest, I don’t usually love black and white fan, but I this gingham table setting with a touch of green is super cute. I also love the wooden place mats. They are a great option for a rustic Christmas table!
3. DIY Woodsy Place Card Stands
If you’re in need of place card stands, or are looking for a last minute project, these DIY log place card stands are super cute — and look relatively easy to put together with the help of some hot glue & gardening sheers.
4. Jingle Bell Place Card Holder
If you’re not looking to take the DIY route, I also love the use of a jingle bell to hold a place card. It adds the perfect touch of fun to this place setting!
5. Red Lantern Centerpieces
These red lanterns make a beautiful Christmas centerpiece, especially surrounded by evergreen branches and berries. If you have any type of lantern (red, silver, gold) placing them down the middle of your table with candles – or even filled with other decor like ornaments – will definitely make a statement!
6. Blue & White Christmas Table
I’m a huge blue & white fan – and with it being so popular for the past couple of years – I couldn’t help but share this combo Ballard put together. Don’t be afraid to use your blue and white china – add a festive red or plaid napkin to tie in the Christmas theme!
7. Colorful Tree Table, Great for the Kids
These tall colorful DIY trees by Brit + Co are the perfect centerpiece for a kids table. They’re pretty much indestructible – and make for an extra-cheery setting!
8. Red & White Striped Table Setting
You can’t go wrong with a classic red and white stripe. Whether you use the pattern on a table runner, napkin, or ribbon, it’s the perfect addition to any Christmas table. I love how Home Stories A to Z used it below with the striped napkin on a classic white plate, with some greenery, jingle bells, and adorable Santa mugs!
9. Pine Cone Place Card Stands
Are your guests coming over within a few hours? Forage your yard or make a quick trip to your nearby grocery store and grab some pine cones. They make the perfect place card stand — and are also great for filling vases and centerpieces.
10. Mini Snow Dusted Trees & A Classic Plaid
I love this place setting for it’s simplicity. The mini snow dusted tree on top of the plaid napkin with the brown name tag makes for the perfect cozy meal!
BONUS – Hot Chocolate Bar
While you’re at it (if anyone has extra time on their hands around this time of year, which I know is probably not the case), set up a hot chocolate bar next to your table. Add jars full of toppings such as marshmallows, crushed peppermint, and candy canes!
