Christmas Table Setting Ideas

Hello friends! Here’s some quick Christmas table setting ideas and inspiration for you, just in time for your holiday meals. Welcome to Jenny’s table. Jenny and I go way back to high school. She’s beautiful inside and out, and so is her Christmas table. It’s not only beautiful and welcoming, but it’s perennial. Which to me means, next year she can just unpack and repeat. Many of the items can also be reused for year-round use.

Christmas Decorations and Table Settings

Jenny’s table theme is mostly monochromatic, but the reason it works so well is the layers of texture she uses. Notice the glow of the candlelight, the reflection of glass, silverware, and a shimmer of Spode china provide the warmth. This is all nicely juxtaposed with the roughness of the burlap runner, straw chargers, bare lantern wood, pine cones, faux Christmas trees, and greens.

Mixing Real and Faux for Holiday Tablescapes

Live flowers and greens are always lovely, but let’s be honest they can run up costs. Consider mixing in both, to get beauty and longevity too. Incorporating faux trees and pine cones, that you can use year in and year out is a wonderful way to decorate easier and smarter. Then sprinkle in a touch of real cedar, pine touches, or fresh flowers and you have a complete package! I just love what Jenny has created. It’s so warm and inviting…and Easy. I hope it inspires you too.
