Hello friends! If you are new to my blog, thank you so much for stopping by. Today, I want to share with you how I created a romantic Christmas Tablescape using fresh greenery and florals.
This year, we are staying home for Christmas. We have no family in town, unfortunately, and decided that this year we would celebrate Christmas in our own home with our two little girls. This is the first year that my oldest, who turns three on December 26th, really understands what Christmas is all about. I am so excited to see their faces light up on Christmas morning.
Even though we have decided to stay home this year, I still wanted it to feel like a traditional christmas I had growing up. My mom, on Christmas Eve, would set the table with all of her Christmas china and we would have the most delicious meal in our Dining room that we only used on special occasions.
For my tablescape this year, I wanted it fancy yet simple. Since, we still have two little babies who like to break anything they get their hands on, I decided to use fresh greenery and florals, something they can not really ruin, even if they tried.
I was on the hunt for reasonably priced cedar garland this year. I found this garland online at Sams Club (and you don’t even have to be a member to order). The garland filled my home with an aroma that smells like Christmas. We have fake trees in our home so I loved bringing fresh greenery into my table so my home would smell like a fresh cut Christmas tree.
I then added red roses and tulips to the garland to add more color and texture to the table.
I had so much garland that I was able to drape the garland on the floor on the one side. I love how the draped garland creates a dramatic and romantic effect to the tablescape.
The red roses are truly romantic, and I love the added pops of color.
I also created simple hoop wreaths that I hung on my wall. I simply just cut some greenery off the garland and hot glued them onto the wreaths. I then used floral wire to hang the tulips from the nails that were used to hang the wreaths on the wall.
I layered Christmas sheet music that I found on Etsy to the plates, to create an extra layer of dimension.
For the napkins, I rolled them up, added fresh cinnamon sticks and fresh cuts of greens from the garland. I then tied them together with twine and a simple bow.
I used gold chargers to make the table more fancy and to also tie in the brass candlesticks.
On the floor, I used pomegranates, to add more variations of red. I also used tea lights on the floor for some more romantic vibes.
The candlesticks are from an antique store, but you can also find similar ones on Pottery barn here.
I added more candles to our faux fireplace (these faux birch wood candleholders are from Hobby Lobby) and some faux greenery (also from Hobby Lobby). I found the stocking holders at Target, and hung two white knitted stockings.
Well there you have it. At first, it may seem overwhelming to create such an elaborate tablescape. But I promise you it was very easy. It just takes a little bit of prep work ahead of time to achieve the tablescape of your dreams.
As always, thank you for visiting. I hope you and your family have a blessed holiday.
Until next time.
