A Simple Christmas Table

This is my first ever tablescape!! Yes, it's simple, but that just goes with my whole simple theme this year. 

A Simple Christmas Table

When I decided to actually create this, I knew I didn't want to break the bank.... Also, I really didn't want to add a bunch of 'stuff' to store for the year. So my goal was to use what I already had for the most part. 

In case you missed Our Simple Christmas Home, just click on the title and it will take you right there.😊

Oh, where do I start!! I had sooo much fun photo shooting this post! I love all the color and angles and everything! 💕

Let's start with the place settings.  The little salad plates were my inspiration for this tablescape.  I was searching all over for something simple and sweet.  I just happen to stop in at our local Goodwill and low and behold.... look what I found??? 8 matching holly plate for only $4.00! What a STEAL!

Holly Salad Plates

I made the tiny holly wreath, from some holly garland I picked up at the Target Dollar Spot last year.  Those sweet little banners were just printed off of my computer. 😍

Last year after Christmas, I found a set of plaid napkins, but I had only purchased 4... Well, that wasn't enough.  So, I just happen to find another set that is soooo similar that you have to really inspect them to see the difference.  Can you tell? Well, now that I told you, you can. 😉

Christmas Table Setting

The white dinner plates are our regular dishes we use everyday.  I love them! They are the Corelle dishes. They are lightweight, strong and have held up beautifully!

The red charger plates add the needed pop of color!  I picked those up at the Dollar Tree.

Christmas Table Setting

This silverware is antique.  It belonged to Hubby's grandparents. I've only used it a handful of times. Don't look too close it needs to be polished, which I will do before our Christmas dinner.  The set is stored in this old wooden case. Pretty cool, huh?!

Silverware storage

We already had the wine glasses so, I spent less than $20 on the table settings. Not bad!

The runner down the center of the table is actually a $5 blanket scarf, I picked up at AC Moore.  I cut it apart into 2 sections and pulled threads out to fringe it on both sides. They are just overlapped in the middle.

The centerpiece is a combination of the long pine needle garland that I used in almost all of my Christmas decor, you can see that in Our Simple Christmas Home.

So, it's just weaved along the center with some berry sprigs, pinecones, bells and candles.  

Christmas Centerpiece

I found those adorable little glass lanterns at the Dollar Tree.  Don't they look sweet with the faux snow and tealight?

This was so much fun! You may see a few more tablescapes in my future...

Well, I'm signing off until after Christmas.  Praying you all have a very merry and safe Christmas. Take a moment to thank The Lord for His goodness and mercy for sending His Son, Jesus, the Messiah.  

Remember the true meaning of why we celebrate Christmas.  It isn't about the presents, or the food, or even family.... It's about one special baby that was born to save the world.  

Merry Christmas!
Blessings to you all!

  1. I love it! Simple is always best. Stealing your idea for faux snow with my candles - I have pillars that have a remote (LOVE IT) and plenty of greenery. I also love the napkins and chargers - stealing so many ideas from you! Thanks for the inspiration!
