Christmas table decor

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

With the new year now here, I wanted to share the last of my holiday inspiration, the Christmas table decor. You can pin it for next year’s inspiration and very ahead of the Christmas season. 🙂

I promised a second holiday table this season and even though we all just celebrated the new year, I still wanted to share it.

I actually put together this Christmas table decor and photographed it a few weeks ago. However, that pneumonia put me very behind schedule this season and I’ve been on a mad rush this last week to share all the holiday details. And I saved the best for last.

While greens and reds are the traditional Christmas colors, I was feeling something different this year. I wanted the same richness that you get with the traditional holiday colors, but I was also really inspired by the dried oranges I shared with you earlier this month.

The oranges were a little, bold, natural pop of unexpected color in the season of red and green and I love the way they complimented it. However, I was also really inspired by Blue this season. Orange and blue are compliments to one another on the color wheel so l felt that adding a touch of blue would also work.

That said, I couldn’t completely leave out the red and greens in the Christmas table decor.

So, for the second tablescape for the holiday season I concentrated on pulling together bold, rich and warm colors to make a table that’s not only beautiful but also full of warmth and light.

Take a look below at our Christmas table decor and let me know what you think in the comments.

The centerpiece

Originally, I had planned to use something developed by a florist for the true center of the table centerpiece. However, when it arrived, it just didn’t look right. Maybe it was too commercial-looking?

Instead, I started layering cedar branches. It gave me a beautiful, natural base to build from for the Christmas table decor.

Once those were down, I added Emmett Antique Brass Taper Candle Holders from Crate and Barrel. I had hoped to find antique candle holders in one of the Grand Rapids shops this December. But, oddly enough, I didn’t actually get the chance to go shopping in those stores this season. I found these and decided to go with them and they are lovely.

Then I added in the dried orange slices and then a few pomegranates, which looked a little rough but I loved that they weren’t perfect.

I almost stopped there but then I looked back at that floral arrangement. The flowers were really stunning, and I loved that it included hypericum. They were gorgeous and I plucked them out of the arrangement and started adding them to my table. (They are also poisonous to animals so if you use them keep the dogs, cats, chickens and other animals away.)

I also hijacked a few other pretties from the arrangement and added them onto the table. This included Kangaroo Paw, which is the branch with yellow buds, and Chrysanthemum, the red flowers.

Once those were added, the Christmas table decor centerpiece felt complete. It was beautiful, full of life and festive.

The place setting

As for the place setting, I reused some pieces that I had used in the previous holiday tablescape. I did this for two reasons:

  1. They worked with the centerpiece and the feeling I was going for.
  2. I didn’t want to spend additional money when I felt like the items I had worked really well.

The chargers are from World Market and they still have them. I actually think these would work really well for all seasons. I can see them on an Easter table and a rustic summer table. They of course are also perfect for fall.

The flatware is from Target. I love the color and that it’s softer than the candlestick holders. You can find the flatware here.

The plates are from William Sonoma and I bought them last year on sale. In fact, I was only able to find seven plates, not the eight that I had wanted. I bought them anyways because the sale was too good to pass up and they were perfect for my Easter table. I love that they’re simple enough to reuse again and again but also have a bit of sweetness to the edge.

On the plate

The napkins are also from William Sonoma. Don’t tell Kevin! 🙂 I was looking for that specific color blue and I really wanted them to be linen. They ended up being perfect.

I tied the napkins with some simple twine and then added individual mercury glass ornaments. Each ornament was different, and I appreciated the variety. I originally bought them to use them on my living room Christmas tree, but I had a bit of an abundance there. Instead I brought them into the barn without a plan. And it all worked out. You can find them here.

I tucked a sprig of the cedar under each napkin because I thought it needed a bit more color on the plate.

The wine glasses are our’s from our engagement. The were originally from Bed, Bath and Beyond and are rimmed with a bit of gold.

You can see all the details in the Christmas table decor place setting below.


Thank you so much for visiting today, friends. I hope you’ll come back again and hang around for all our adventures in the new year.
