It’s beginning to look at lot Christmas around my house! This is the first year I will be hosting Christmas in our new home and I am beyond excited! I plan on making a delish meal and y’all know I need an epic table to go along with it. I wanted to create a simple farmhouse centerpiece that was natural and easy for you boos to do as well!
As I’ve mentioned before, it all starts with the center of the table. I began to build my tablescape by placing a burlap runner down the middle. I then took one strand of garland I purchased from my local nursery, put it on top of the runner, and layered on antlers and flocked pine cones. Next up I placed three trees on the table, equal distance a part, with the larger flocked tree in the middle. I finished off the centerpiece with my everyday black candlesticks a la Pottery Barn. I always think you should have candles on a table as it creates a beautiful ambiance. Voila, she’s done! It’s that simple and easy.
Now that the centerpiece is complete, let’s move onto the place setting. I LOVE chargers and have been eyeing these wood beauties for years. I finally invested in them last month when I built my Thanksgiving tablescape. They are the perfect amount of rustic for my farmhouse table. Many of y’all have asked me if they smell as the reviews mention an odor. I have had ZERO issue with mine – they smell like trees and I’m ALL about that! 😉
Next, I set the table using my classic white dinner plates and gold flatware. To add in a lil’ holiday touch I purchased new red buffalo check napkins this year. They bring in the perfect amount of color AND farmhouse touch. Probably my favorite festive item are the wreath name cards. I mean, how cute are they!?? I also love adding a personal touch and getting creative with name cards is my favorite way to do this. I found these gems here! Glassware was the last item to complete the table. I wanted to compliment the metallic in the flatware, so I selected vintage style glasses with a gold rim. Perfection!
The last little holiday decor item I want to mention, is the garland I placed on the chandeliers. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out, but I LOVE it! I weaved it around the iron before starting the tablescape so I could clean up the falling debris. Other than it being a little messy, it was SO easy and added a very natural element to the space!
Overall, this table is festive and a great reflection of my overall home design. I love purchasing a few new items each holiday and mixing it with my everyday goodies. Remember, make it your own! See below to shop my tablescape. As always, leave a comment with any questions you may have.
