6 Festive Christmas Tablescapes Courtney Hayes December 11, 2014 DECOR It seems like just yesterday we were taking the turkey out of the oven and making a pumpkin pie. But in a mere fortnight, it’ll be time to pull out the nice linens again to celebrate Christmas. We rounded up a few of our favorite tablescapes to help make your holidays merry and bright. 1. Take it up a level. Holiday Dinner Party with Mini Food via Oh Happy Day A table that holds all the food and dishes and doesn’t look cluttered is practically the next miracle on 34th street but this table manages to do just that. By using planks of wood at different heights to hold the food, this table is the perfect example of practicality and design. Less clutter means less mess and less cleaning, and we’re never opposed to that. 2. Visit the French countryside. And so it begins… via French Larkspur The simple DIYs in this classic table drew us in. Green sprigs, pinecones, berries, and candles wrapped in paper secured by twine make this a relaxing place to take in a meal and sip on a cocktail before dinner. 3. Walk in a winter wonderland. Whimsical Wonderland Christmas Table Setting via Coco + Kelley This table exudes the Christmas spirit with colorful bottlebrush trees, gold silverware, and nutcracker placecards to help guests find their seats. We can’t a jollier place to enjoy a meal with friends and family. 4. Dress up the background. Christmas Home Tour 2013 via Cuckoo 4 Design On it’s own, this table may not seem ready for the holidays. But when paired with the ornaments hanging over it and the art and tree behind it, it becomes the perfect place to savor a delicious Christmas meal. If you’re not into filling up the table with a lovely but impractical centerpiece, take a look around the room and figure out how to put more holiday decor in it. Oversized holiday art, like the pieces from our exclusive Twelve Days of Art collection, can serve the same purpose as a centerpiece without taking up precious table space. 5. Keep the kids happy. Winter White Swedish Christmas Party photographed by Love Bucket Photo for Fire and Creme Kids via 100 Layer Cakelet The kids might want to eat all their vegetables if they’re sitting at a table this cute. Complete with reindeer crowns, a pompom garland, and poppers for an added burst of surprise, this is one kids table they’ll never forget. 6. Go into the wild. A Winter Holiday Tablescape via Poppytalk Plaid, fur, greenery, and mason jars come together to make this chic-but-burly table that gives off the feel of being near a warm and toasty fire. We’d love to dine at this table all winter long! For more holiday and tablescape ideas, visit us on Pinterest.
