Christmas is less than two weeks away…I know, let that sink in for a moment. How is it possible that Christmas is upon us?! I’m pretty sure I say this every single year BUT this year has flown by. We are trying to slow down a bit and enjoy this special time…our favorite time of year.
The days leading up to Christmas are just so wonderful for my family…from our Christmas tree, to the the twinkling lights, to hot chocolate while watching The Polar Express, to our Elf Chippy visiting, to preparing for Santa’s visit, to all of the holiday festivities…there is no better time of year for us.
We love decorating our home together as a family and one of the many things that I enjoy this time of year is dreaming up our Christmas tablescape…the table I will create for our family dinner on Christmas Eve. This year I was inspired by a couple of things…my love for plaid and the feeling of warmth that candlelight creates.
Our table will be lit with lots of candles and decorated with natural greenery and magnolia flowers. I’ve added a little pop of plaid with our table runner and these gorgeous plaid plates. I decided to use gold flatware to tie in the gold of our candlesticks. This is one of my favorite tablescapes I’ve created…it just feels so warm, cozy, and inviting.
Don’t worry, if you don’t have all of these things, you can still create a beautiful tablescape with candles and greenery. It truly does not take much to create an inviting space that your family and friends will want to gather around.
Hope you love our Christmas tablescape as much as I do!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by…see you back here real soon!
