There’s nothing better than gathering around your table with family and friends at Christmas time. I cherish these memories and the good food, conversation and laughter. Today I’m sharing with you my simple Farmhouse Christmas Table. Setting a good table during the holidays just adds to the spirit of love and happiness.

I’m such a fan of a good old fashioned Christmas feel to my decor, including plaid, buffalo checks, and the classic Christmas colors, red and green. I tend to go for that look every year.

Using pint canning jars just adds to that feeling.

Tip: No need to have expensive china or details for your table. I got these dishes, napkins, and jars at Walmart and the black chargers at Hobby Lobby for just $2 each. Also, check your thrift stores for dishes and decor. Don’t be afraid to mix and match. The large plaid tablecloth was $6 at Big Lots.

Tip: The fork goes on the left and the knife and spoon go on the right with the knife’s round edge closest to the plate.

I really like the look of chargers under the dishes. They make the place setting look more put together.

Tip: If black isn’t one of the main colors of your decor use a touch of it here and there. It helps to make the other colors pop.

 

Pretty Christmas Table

I used what I already had for a centerpiece. Over the years I’ve collected my share of Christmas decor so had plenty to choose from. I’ve been collecting deer pieces the last few years so decided those would make a nice display and went from there. I have lots of greenery, the red candlesticks, the tree, and the lights that all look rustic and go with the deer and the cozy decor I have going on in my home.

Tip: Use different heights when setting a centerpieces and an odd number of items. It’s more pleasing to the eye.

Tip: When thinking about Christmas table decor start with a theme. Look at what you already have, your other decorations, your dishes, and the feeling your want. Staying with a theme makes it easier to find items that work well together.

Tip: Add a special gift or favor as a reminder of the meal.

For my table I thought a simple candy cane was perfect. I found these gourmet candy canes at Target.

Tip: Battery operated lights can add such a nice sparkle to a Christmas table. Just hide the battery pack in the decor.

I hope these pictures and tips were inspirational to you. The time you spend in putting a nice table together will be so worth it.

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.

  1. I love all of this! So traditional and I love the colors and the reindeer

  2. Your table looks great and I love all the tips!

  3. I’m a plaid girl, so I love the tablecloth. I also like how you mixed and matched all your pieces so it looks like it’s been collected for a long time (my favorite look). Took notes and pinned.

  4. Your table setting looks beautiful! My daughter really wanted the glasses that look like canning jars with handles, so when we redid our kitchen, that’s what I got, they are fun, and often I realize the kids are just drinking out of my canning jars, lol
