Christmas Table Setting Ideas

Each time I put together a tablescape, I try to think outside the box and create something new. Last year’s holiday tablescape included a lot of gold dishware. This year I still wanted to incorporate my favorite metallic color in a different way. The main inspiration for this particular table setting came from my Christmas Pinterest board. I’ve been pinning a ton of holiday decor ideas daily so make sure to follow me for a ton of decor inspiration!

For the centerpiece, I used two bonze candlestick holders and a gold candle pillar. I like the idea of something running down the center of the table such as a table runner, garland, lights, candles, etc. I decided to make use of the 40 piece ornament set I picked up from Target. All the ornaments are made of plastic so if they fall on the floor or if your kids play with them, it doesn’t matter. I also added a few jingle bells, gold painted pinecones, and string lights to the mix.

To be honest, my tables are like an outfit. I put a few options together, see how I like it, and then decide on a favorite. Sometimes I’ll walk away from the table with 4 different place setting options on it only to come back later for a fresh perspective. Don’t be fooled, I did NOT just pull what I needed out of the kitchen to create this. I pulled out every single plate, charger, utensil, glass, and napkin I could find and then played with those options for my favorite set up.

Honestly, if I had space in my kitchen I would have 5 or 6 different tablescape options in all different colors. There have been instances where I’ve walked out of a store only because I don’t have room for anything else in my kitchen!

Other tips I would like to include for setting up a Christmas table setting:

  • Make sure you leave room for dishes to be set down and passed around the table. My table is a bit small so I leave a side table at one end in case there just isn’t room for anything else on the table, yet I want to have the dish nearby.
  • Also, make sure to think about the dishes you’ll be serving and if you’ll have all of the proper utensils in place.
  • Name cards are always a good idea for large parties where certain people may like to avoid each other.
  • Read up on basic table setting etiquette. Here is a great example:
