I finally set aside a few hours last week to create this tablescape, and had so much fun doing so. I wanted to create a table that was inexpensive, festive, and easy to achieve. Seeing as Christmas Eve is tomorrow, I thought I’d share an easy Christmas Tablescape + My Christmas menu, along with a few tips!
My favorite thing to do is create beautiful things. Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved creating, styling, and dressing things up to make them pretty. It’s always been my dream to have the prettiest Christmas table. But up until now, I’ve never been able to make that happen.
For my centerpiece, I bought 3 bundles of eucalyptus greens for $5 each at the grocery store. I also picked up a bunch of pomegranates and simply arranged them around the edges of the greens. Then I threw in a few ornaments for an extra festive touch, and done. Took me only 10 minutes and turned out so pretty. The major bonus in using eucalyptus?
It smells incredible, just like Christmas actually. Perfection.
Moving along to my dishes. I used simple brushed white plates (sold out), and gold flatware, to add a festive pop of color. Natural linens with velvet ribbon, and the cutest homemade gingerbread cookie name tags, give each place setting a special touch. To finish off the table, I used my favorite fancy wine glasses that add an air of elegance.
In full disclosure, I can 100% guarantee my Christmas Eve and Christmas Day table will not look like this. My family is full of boys who could simply care less about what the table looks like. And since I’m usually running around in the kitchen, the table never gets as fully done up I would like. I try, but then ten seconds later someone comes in and ruins it. I wish I was joking, but that’s my family. They’re wild and crazy, and they drive me insane…but yet I love them to death.
And with that, I’m going to leave you guys with my Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinner menus. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, making many memories with family and friends! Merry Christmas!
