Hey friends only 6 more sleeps until Christmas….yay!! I wanted to give you some last minute ideas for your Christmas table. So here are 6 ideas to inspire you. I have links to all the product sources. I it’s a product that is no longer available, I try to find the next best thing to use. Once I create a place setting, then I find items to finish off the table with a centerpiece to coordinate. A simple runner with greenery or berries and some candles would go with all of these. Enjoy!!
Shop This Traditional Tartan Setting
I love using a beautiful plaid for Christmas decor. This layered look has a casual look to it with the burlap and natural napkin ring. I love to mix patterns so this Merry Christmas napkin looks perfect mixed with plaids.
Shop This Black & White Check Place Setting
I always love a neutral table with pops of black bold check patterns. Don’t be afraid to mix check sizes using a buffalo check (large plaid) all the way down to a gingham (small check). Just use the cedar placemat to give it a festive feel and a holiday plate to give another pattern mixed in.
Shop This Gingerbread Place Setting
I love this cute whimsical place setting. I found these little houses at the dollar store and they make perfect additions to a place setting. A simple cedar placemat with a burlap charger looks great with the gingerbread and I kept the napkin neutral so it wouldn’t take away from the house. It looks so cute sitting on top of a cup cake stand. Then I tucked in some cinnamon sticks to tie in with the gingerbread (plus it smells yummy too)
Shop This Neutral Place Setting
If you’ve followed me a while you know I love using black on tablescapes. This is a great every day look for the holidays. Starting with a black charger and layering with the snowflake placemat in between the plate and charger adds the festive touch. Once again I mixed a scripted napkin with the fun check ornament. Ornaments make a great addition to each place setting and can serve as a gift or party favor for your guests. Of course that little bit of Christmas greenery finishes off the whole look.
Shop This Mixed Christmas Plaid Place Setting
I think this is my favorite one! I started with a plaid charger and added the fun snowflake placemat. Then the dinner plate. Next I layered in a plaid salad plate and to separate the appetizer plate, I used a scripted napkin to give more texture and layer. The pretty cedar napkin ring adds just the perfect touch of Christmas.
Shop This Christmas Tree Place Setting
Creamy neutrals and pops of greenery make this setting so festive. I layered a galvanized charger on the cedar place mat and then added the dinner plate. A pretty Christmas salad plate pops next to the neutral background. A soft napkin simply laid on the plate with a cedar napkin ring completes the whole look. This tiny tree adds so whimsey and again, makes a great party favor to give your guests.
I hope you were able to get some inspirations from these place settings. The key is that there are no rules. Have fun mixing layers and prints. Fun additions like greenery picks, ornaments and miniatures give the table a festive flare and make your guests feel special because of the detail you put into it.
I hope you have very Merry Christmas and enjoy all those special moments with your family. I am so grateful for every one of you. Your support means so much to me and I look forward to inspiring you in 2020. I have so many fun things to come in the new year so I hope you’ll stick around and come back often friends!
