Christmas Day is almost here and if you are like myself, you are planning out what kind of tablescape you are going to have this year. Each year, I host Christmas dinner at my home which I truly enjoy. When preparing for everyone to come gathering her to spend time with loved ones, I always want to have a tablescape on the main table for everyone to enjoy. Although I always want make the tablescape full and beautiful, I have to remember that we use this table for dinner as well. This year I wanted to create a something that was stunning but very easy to eat around. Here are a few different styled tablescapes that I hope will inspire you to create a cozy Christmas table!
This first tablescape here, I wanted to add greenery and a center statement pieces. I used faux trees in vintage florist buckets for the winter greenery touches and then some cream bottle brush trees for texture. Any tablescape I create, I want it to be cozy and that to me is a candle and a favorite mug. I layered this setting with my favorite candle from Antique Candle Co and some vintage Santa Mugs. When layering I always bring in a vintage architectural savage piece that is paired with another layer of texture, in this one I did the dried oranges, Christmas plates, and a black and white ribbon. This is a tablescape that I feel will make for beautiful memories and a cozy feel while eating.
This was my other option for a cozy Christmas tablescape and I have to say that it is my favorite, which means it will be the tablescape for Christmas Day! This one was super easy to make from pieces that I had laying around the house. I was inspired by Liz Marie when she did a candle stick center piece. I loved the way that she did her center piece and I wanted to try it but, put my own Christmas spin onto it. I found an old 4×4 laying around the garage and drilled holes on one side to hold the candle sticks. I knew that I did not want to just do candle sticks on it though, that is when I remembered that I has these baby bottle brush trees from Target. I decided that I wanted to add in bottle brush trees into my candle stick center piece. These little bottle brush trees from the Target dollar spot fit perfect into the holes the were drilled for the candle sticks. I rounded up the cream and white tapered candle sticks that I had around the house and put them in the holes that I drilled. I lit all the candles and let them burn for about 30 minutes before I started to melt the wax onto the other candles. I have to say that I am thrilled with how it turned out and how simple it was to create. This tablescape will be easy for my family to eat around but still get the cozy Christmas vibes.
Styling tablescapes are one of my favorite things to style. I really hope the sharing these two simple tablescapes will help inspire you to create a cozy one for your Christmas Day Dinner. Thank you for coming by the blog today, XOXO
