Christmas Table Decorations

I decorated my table with the help of so much twinkly and colorful Christmas inspiration from Christmas Tree Shops andThat!

Here’s my favorite way to plan a holiday table: walk into the store and see what inspires me! Christmas Tree Shops andThat! is GREAT for that because there is so. much. stuff. When I went to shop for our Christmas table, it was no exception. The first thing that caught my eye were these bottle brush tree trios. I could have bought 5 of these and called it a day. I really think the bottle brush trees alone would have looked adorable!

But of course there were lots of other choices so onwards I went. These little white light up houses were in the ornament section so I paired them with the slightly larger votives and I love how sweet they look tucked amongst the trees.

This time of year, I love having flower bulbs starting to sprout anywhere and everywhere. If I plan around Thanksgiving, they’re usually blooming around Christmas. These paper white bulbs are sitting in glasses filled with fish tank gravel and water. They’ve all rooted so we’re headed for some lovely flowers just in time for Christmas lunch!

If you show me disco balls, I will buy disco balls. These medium sized ones were only $3.99 and I kind of wish I’d bought 20. I settled for two and interspersed them with the trees and white houses.

For the place settings themselves, I’ve started with those plastic green chargers. For Christmas lunch, I think I’ll add our Spode holiday plates. Christmas tree shops has a wonderful collection, but I have a set given to me by my mother in law so I’ll drag them out of the attic.

I’ve mentioned it before, but I love using dishtowels as napkins… they’re bigger, more absorptive, and they typically clean a little bit easier (i.e. don’t require ironing). These holiday dish towels had all the colors I love, and I tied them with a simple twine bow and added one of those colorful disco ball ornaments.

Can we talk about the chair decorations? Those oversized Christmas lights are actually solar powered so all I did was tie a pair of them around each chair back with a small piece of velvet ribbon.

Hanging on the glass door to the back wing of the house is that completely kitschy cool LED wreath. The kids LOVE it.

Vintage candy, mini LED string lights and some green party poppers are the finishing touches for this holiday table setting! I love all the twinkly lights in the centerpiece… now I just need to figure out what to serve for Christmas lunch! Leave a comment and let me know your family favorites for Christmas meals!
