The Christmas tablescape is always a most festive and welcoming sight, especially when you're a brunch or dinner host. The best part is that if you haven't given much thought about your table setting, there's still time to pull together something beautiful to welcome your guests.
In my Thanksgiving decorating post, I gave a few last minute tips that included sliding some early Christmas decor into your scheme. In this post, I'm going to add a few more ideas to help bring tons of Christmas cheer to your table without a lot of hassle.
Let's get to it!
The Tabletop is Like a Canvas
There are so many things that you can do to create something beautiful that speaks to your guests about your home vibe. It can be casual, elegant, rustic, eclectic, or whatever you're feeling. The idea is to translate that over to your table and use your canvas to convey those feelings, or that vibe, to your guests.
The key in creating a beautiful tablescape is to do what you love. Here are some examples of tablescapes using Christmas faux cakes.
Each of these scapes is very different in style, yet they have used the same centerpiece. Every one of them is beautiful because they convey the individuality of the stylist.
Elevate Your Tablescape
Once you've figured out the style you'd like to express, Christmas is heavy on cookies and desserts. I've fallen in love with this Juliska cookie tray. It's a perfect size for a small group and keeps the portion size manageable.
I love the use of silver trays for a little elevation. My tablescape vibe usually includes some element of gold, silver, or bronze because it gives even a casual tablescape a hint of elegance.
