This Christmas, my holiday tablescape was inspired by evergreen trees, and I love how it turned out. First, I used a plain white tablecloth to create a base. Then I folded a thin, plaid cashmere throw blanket to serve as a runner (going the opposite direction, just to be different).
For each place setting, I layered 2 different paper placemats from Hester & Cook – the evergreen trees rectangular mat and the circular, wood die-cut mat. A coordinating place card with trees (a Barque exclusive) and a decorative, cotton napkin complete the look for each setting.
A few hidden jingle bells never hurt a holiday tablescape. These I just happened to have on hand.
For the center of the table, I wanted something that guests could still see and have conversation through, so I was thrilled upon finding this “Holiday Garland” carrier for 60% off at Jo-Ann’s. It’s perfect! All it needed was a little garland, mini battery-operated white lights, a fun ribbon and oversized candy canes to add some color.
With the addition of an antique red gas camping lantern on each end of the table and a sprinkling of tiny pine cones, this table has a rustic and woodsy look.
How do you decorate the table for the holidays? Do you have a tried and true table setup, or do you try something new every year? I’d love to know.
Merry Christmas all,
