A simple frosted mistletoe Christmas tablescape made from a beautiful garland, along with classic holiday touches for a festive celebration.
Merry Christmas, friends! I’m so excited to be part of the Celebrate Christmas Blog Hop, hosted by Leen from Sand Dollar Lane this year, and I feel so honored to be among the talented and creative bloggers participating today! Pour yourself a cup of coffee and spend a little time with us. You will be inspired by everything from Christmas trees to holiday tables, along with wreaths and door decor too! If you are visiting from Sonja and Jane at Sustain My Craft Habit, welcome! I am so happy you are here!
The holiday season has arrived! With this being such a challenging and different year, we definitely need to make the holidays extra special. Our holiday celebration will look a little different this year. Instead of entertaining a large group, my family and I will be keeping our gathering small. Christmas Eve dinner will just be the four of us this year…my husband and our two college-aged children. As a result, I decided to set a festive table for us, while keeping it easy and simple for me.
To set our Christmas table, I began with this ivory-colored velvet runner from Home Goods. On top of it, I placed this beautiful frosted mistletoe pre-lit garland in an S shape, along with these classic brass candlesticks, all from Lights.com. This garland glistens as if its been dusted with snow, and is graced with pearly white berries. My favorite feature is the that the LED lights are battery-powered and also include a timer. To the garland, I added a few dried orange slices, some red berry picks, pine cones, and these adorable DIY faux mercury glass votive holders. The lights of the garland and the flicker of the candlelight makes the room and table feel so cozy.
The Place Settings
When Andy and I got married, we started this collection of Pfaltzgraff Winterberry Christmas dishes. Every year for almost twenty-five years, we switch out our everyday dishes for these. I love the simple classic Christmas pattern. These versatile round jute placemats add texture and the silver metallic chargers from Dollar Tree add a little sparkle. I just topped them off with a white linen napkin.
My friend Pinar, from The Happiest Shop Ever, made this beautiful napkin. She wanted to get my feedback before monogramming a set for me. Isn’t it beautiful? I couldn’t help but snap a picture.
Drink Station and Hutch
On this antique side table, I set up a little drink station, complete with this Sparkling Cranberry Orange Sangria. With the cranberries, orange slices, and cinnamon sticks, it looks so fun and festive (and it’s tastes amazing too)!
I recently painted this room this beautiful slate blue. You may recognize this mirror is the one that was in my hallway. I love shopping my home and changing things around. I gave it a quick and easy update with my DIY chalk paint. A few coats of paint and a little distressing gave this mirror a whole new look!
I wish you a very Merry Christmas! However you are spending your holiday this year, I hope you will find peace and joy. Be sure to head over and visit Ann at Dabbling & Decorating in her lovely Vermont home. She is sharing the most beautiful antique blue and white tablescape!
