I know I say this a lot, but this is my favorite Christmas table I have ever done! I knew I wanted the table to be a little more elegant than the rest of the house, but I wanted it to be festive at the same time. One of my favorite things about Christmas is bright and cheerful Christmas decor; however, sometimes I like for my decor to have an elegant touch as well. Here is my version of an elegant and festive Christmas table!
Here is my naked table except for the new table runner I found at Walmart. It is a creamy neutral, so it can be used year round, but I love the texture that it adds. Plus, it keeps the table from feeling too formal.
This black ribbon is also from Walmart. I am a big fan of using small amounts of black even when decorating for Christmas. I put a strip right down the center of the runner and love the mix of casual texture with a dressier ribbon.
These floral stems are from Hobby Lobby and when I saw them I knew I wanted to incorporate them into my table centerpiece. In the past, I have used a lot of what I already had, but this year I decided to change up the florals a bit. I am so glad I did!
The wood piece with the bottles came from Kirklands several years ago and I have used it every Christmas. This part is so much fun and it’s nice to let the creative juices flow. There is no perfect or right way to arrange the floral stems. It is all about what looks good to your eye, so just have fun!
One unexpected thing I added to the centerpiece were ornaments that I found at Walmart. They are so pretty and add a little something extra. There are three ornaments, so I tied them to three of the bottles.
And here you have it! I think it came together so nicely. I love the mix of gold and red and the pretty script on the ornaments.
I used gold, silver, and white ornaments as a filler in the wood piece. I have never been one who likes to use things that go perfectly together. I like mixing old and new with casual and elegant.
Christmas trees are my favorite Christmas decor, so I had to incorporate them into my table decor. These came from Walmart and they are the perfect height for the table. I also placed each one on a mirror to help reflect light and add to the elegance of the table.
On Christmas Eve my family is going to gather around this table to eat dinner, laugh, and play games. I hope they look at this centerpiece and it brings them joy! I also hope that it inspires you and brings you joy!
