The timing of this post couldn’t be anymore perfect. I’m writing this while watching the snow fall from our large dining-room window. We’ve been hit hard in our house, this fall/winter with sickness. A beautiful snowfall is the perfect time (and excuse) to stay inside light a fire, bake a delicious meal and put on a Christmas movie. I’m excited to be partnering up with Christmas Tree Shops and That! to share with you a beautiful themed tablescape for your holiday gatherings this month.
I love going to Christmas Tree Shops and That! to get inspired each season and pick up a couple new items to decorate with. This excursion was no different as while shopping I fell in love with all their holiday decor but especially their woodland themed ornaments, snowflake plates and other winter accessories. Whenever I’m going to set a table for a holiday party/dinner I take inspiration in and walk around the store, then I really focus on what is catching my eye. I typically love reds and holiday greens but I thought it would be cozy to add whites, golds and other textures into my dining table this winter.
Creating a beautiful table all starts with the theme and then layers. I always start with a runner or table cloth and build up from there. Christmas Tree Shops and That! had so many great options for table clothes. I choose a white and gold specked cloth, they usually always have coordinating napkins too. From the tablecloth you want to add your charger, dinner plate, salad plate or bowl. After that you can top it off with a name tag or a special little accent that ties in with the theme. I loved scattering these little ornaments around the table as woodland creatures. These snowflake salad plates are the perfect addition to my Winter Wonderland dining table. I absolutely love the shape of them and the design.
When you are going neutral in decorating always be sure to add in a mix of textures and metallics. Lots of white can be boring so I love the texture the ornaments add to the table as well as the metallic trees and table cloth from Christmas Tree Shops and That!
A centerpiece should tie in with your theme and create interest on the table with out being too large or distracting. I purchased these white metal trees from Christmas Tree Shops and That! then I mixed in some other glass trees and bottle brush trees I already owned. I had these mini sleds I placed down first and then scattered trees of varying heights and some cute ceramic white houses in between that. You could create the same effect with a table runner or wood. Twinkle lights woven through out the centerpiece add a little special twinkle.
The fuzzy woodland deer on the top right shelf was another Christmas Tree Shops and That! find it looks so cute on our pipe shelves.
I also found this potted greenery with silver ornaments in it and snow dusted boxwood stems. Since my table is fairly white and metallic I wanted to bring in some reds/greens on the shelves to make it feel Christmas (y) too!
The kids absolutely love the table decor this year, they are so excited to eat all their meals here and play with the woodland creatures. We will definitely be using these as ornaments too! Be sure to check out Christmas Tree Shops andThat! for all of your holiday and Christmas decor needs.
