Christmas Tablescape

Being a Christmas Baby (thats right I was born on December 25th), I feel like I have a right to go crazy at Christmas. I mean who doesn't love their birthday, especially when its paired with a wonderful holiday such as Christmas?

So I decorate, bake, and say "I love Christmas!" (If my husband had a dollar for every time I have said that THIS YEAR ALONE, he would be a very rich man!). These are the ways I celebrate and prepare for a wonderful season of rejoicing over the birth of a Savior (this is a great article on the true meaning of Christmas).

Over the next three weeks you'll see a bunch of my holiday creations. This week I want to share with you my Christmas Tablescape.  

Making a cheerful table doesn't have to be expensive, just use what you have, add some candle light and you are good to go!

This is my table for Christmas (and yes, I do eat like this everyday.... just kidding). But I love the Burlap and Lace! They are so different, yet they go SO WELL together!

I made this table runner using stuff I had around the house. Some extra burlap, a fat quarter of snow flake fabric (from last year), and a strip of lace - ribbon would work well too!



 And then add little touches of things you have around. Like upside down wine glasses, votive candles, Christmas ornaments - or in my case those plastic apples that I got from a thrift store for $1.


These are actually my everyday plates, they go so well with the blue on the table!

  1. I love your idea for turning the wine glasses upside down, they are like a cloche and a candle holder. Brilliant!
