This is the first year I’ve ever had a dining room I was excited to decorate for Christmas and it’s just in time since we’re hosting! Our recent One Room Challenge makeover has given us two new rooms to hang out and entertain in and getting to set the table for our guests and make it pretty for the holidays has been so fun. I went with a very earthy and neutral christmas tablescape and am so happy with how it turned out!
EARTHY AND NEUTRAL CHRISTMAS TABLESCAPE
For the centerpiece, I found this really beautiful and simple advent candle holder at Hobby Lobby and placed some varying sized amber bottles in the middle of it. I just love how that deep amber color looks against the gold and green.
Then I wrapped some fresh garland in a loose circle around the candle holder – because you can never have too much garland. And it smells SO good. Then I just placed some dry eucalyptus on either side to help fill up the space a bit more.
For each place setting, I used our new plates from CB2 that my mama got us for christmas (thanks mom!). I really wanted some beautiful ceramic dinnerware and love that they have a little lip around the edge so food doesn’t easily fall off.
I placed a little sprig of boxwood on each place setting to tie in some more greenery. Dan thinks it’s pointless but that’s ok – I like it :-p
I found the napkins at HomeGoods and our gold silverware is from Target and it totally makes me feel fancy whenever I use it.
I’m a bit stressed about hosting this year, even though it’s just my parents and Dan’s dad, but I’m so excited to all be gathered around this beautiful table. Which I will be sharing the tutorial on in the new year! It means so much that we were able to keep it in the family and I know this Christmas is just the beginning of the many memories we will share around it.
I hope you all have the most wonderful christmas with your friends & families and spend time celebrating the true reason for the season. <3
