Thanks for joining me for this exciting Christmas Tree Farm Tablescape Reveal!
Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year, am I right?
One of the fun things about it is decorating the home, and that includes the table.
I have a confession: I had never done a tablescape before until this one right here.
I have a Pinterest board dedicated to the topic, but I’d never attempted it before.
Not to toot my own horn, but I absolutely love the way it came together.
Christmas Tree Farm Tablescape
Our dining room doesn’t get a lot of natural light so I usually don’t do too much in there in terms of decorating for the blog.
But I really wanted to do a tablescape and when I saw these “truck salad plates” I couldn’t help but smile at how perfect it was.
How fitting that it would be these plates for my first tablescape – especially for this “tree farm” theme.
I only purchased two (for the end settings) since I had some plates I’d gotten at a garage sale in the summer that had silver trees on them.
I also bought white napkins at Home Sense – you might think it’s crazy to get white napkins, but they can always be washed.
Plus, I wanted something neutral that I could reuse for any season.
I debated about using a table runner, but our dining table isn’t big enough to use both a runner and placemats.
Which meant I had to pick one. I opted for buffalo check placemats and I love how the red compliments the plate settings with all the white.
Since this was my first ever tablescape, I also ended up getting plate chargers
I once again did some browsing, both online and in store. I found some really awesome faux wood chargers, but they wanted $10 for each one.
Then sometime later I was at Walmart and saw these really pretty white chargers. They were only $2 each and you better believe I snagged up six of them.
They had a bit of that distressed look and they’re also perfect to use for any season since I can add color with plates and fillers.
I know I said I didn’t use a table runner, but when I was playing around with the table setting, I remembered this reindeer banner I had and placed it through the middle of the table.
It was a fluke really, but I loved the way it looked and decided to keep it since I wasn’t using it anywhere else for Christmas decorating.
The middle centerpiece was from a garage sale a few years ago. It’s a wooden candleholder and I love the rustic flair it brings to the table.
I used our regular flatware and the water (or wine) glasses were also from a thrift store. I purchased those before we got married to use at our wedding head table.
I’m so glad I kept them because they’re good quality and they give the tablescape a really elegant vibe.
The funny thing is I had never been to a Christmas tree farm until this year, after I’d already decorated for Christmas.
The Hallmark Channel may (“may”) have played a part in that – I love their Christmas movies!
I love how this was a mix of planning and spontaneity. I knew I was going to use those plates from the garage sale and that I wanted neutral napkins and plate chargers.
I also knew I’d be using my wine glasses and dishware.
The centerpiece and “table runner” were a fluke but I love the way it all turned out.
Sometimes all it takes is grabbing a few things you have laying around to give your space that final finishing touch.
I’d love to know, have you ever created a tablescape before? Comment below!
