This year I have been bringing back my favorite posts from years past and this is one I really enjoyed creating. I loved setting this table and how it turned out. I can’t wait to dig into all of my Christmas bins next year when we are in our new house. For now, I am going to enjoy the memories and hope you do too!
Lets take a look back at one of my favorite Christmas Tables!
Every year, I try to come up with a new way to set my table for Christmas and am always on the look out for anything that will make a festive table. A while back, I found a really beautiful vintage Christmas tablecloth and matching napkins that I have been waiting to use for the Holidays.
I don’t always have a plan on what I want to use as a centerpiece and usually, dig around in all my Christmas bins to see what might work. I bought the white felt trees years ago from West Elm. They are so simple and I keep meaning to do a DIY tutorial so you can make them too. I hope I can get to that next year! LOL!
Don’t forget to buy the Fairy Lights and Mini Spotlights I love to use! You need both in your decorating arsenal!
I have also had the little faux red berry stems in my stash and I love how the red berries set off the green leaves in the table linens, I added the twinkle fairy lights in and around the table to give some sparkle. If you are in the market for fairy lights be sure to get the ones with the SMALLEST battery pack, otherwise it is hard to hide the battery pack in your centerpiece. I like these from Amazon
Another really cool small light I found this year – are these little tiny standing spotlights to shine on your favorite decorations. They ares so cool!!
Sorry! I didn’t mean to get sidetracked on mini-lights!
Back to the table! To pull it all together, I used my Grandmother’s green and white plates and green glasses. I loved everything about it! It was also really pretty at night with the fairy lights and candles.
If you need more inspiration, take a look at this Snowy Christmas Table post and if you want a easy DIY head over to the DIY Jingle Bell Napkin Ring post.
Stumped for a yummy and easy dessert idea, this is delicious, or, if you are looking for a make-ahead breakfast, for Christmas morning, this is a favorite in our house and won’t take very long to assemble.
Have a wonderful Holiday and Merry Christmas to you and your family!
