Styled + Set Christmas Entertaining

I will show you how a styled + set Christmas entertaining table can be easy to do.

Hello friends and welcome to this season’s, Styled + Set Christmas Entertaining Tour hosted by my very talented friend Lory at Designthusiasm. A big welcome to those of you who are visiting from Laura at Finding Home Farms! I am so glad to have you here with me today and I hope that this post provides a little inspiration for the upcoming holidays!

When thinking about entertaining during the Christmas season, so many things come to mind! Such as delicious meals, many sweet treats or baked goods and gathering around it all with loved ones.

Preparing for these get togethers can seem overwhelming if I let it ;), through the years I have tried to find ways to remember the reason for it all and let that guide the rest. Of course making things as simple as can be doesn’t hurt either, haha.

A casually elegant table doesn’t have to be loads of work though. One of my favorite and most inexpensive ways to dress up a table is to change out the “accessories”…

When I say accessories, I am talking about the glasses, the napkins, the runner and the flowers.

Lit candles on the table beside the wine glasses.

For this tablescape, I purchased these six (green) wine glasses at the dollar store for a total of 6 dollars! Combined with my nicer dishes and flatware, they were a bargain to pull it all together

I also purchased some festive fabric napkins (at our local HomeGoods). I am loving the red this season in our home, so I wanted to incorporate it on the table as well.

And lastly, I couldn’t resist mixing the plaid napkins with this moody floral runner. It was the statement piece and I loved how it brought a romantic vibe to the decor. Do mix and match your pieces whether that be dishes, patterns or metals. Mix and matching is another inexpensive way to make your table as you can thrift items and use what you already have.

Nothing compares to the ambience of candlelight, so do always try to incorporate real or faux candles somehow on the table.

Roses are a timeless flower and can be used any time or season! They are perfect for the summer, fall and white roses make such a statement during Christmas. They are striking against the red.

Use bowls to hold arrangements! Here I used this ceramic bowl to house the flowers and varieties of floral greenery. I added a few pinecones and pomegranate to finish it off.

And with Christmas trees stealing the show this time of year, tablescapes can just accentuate the whole scene ;)!

Thanks so much for coming here today and I appreciate you taking time to visit.

  1. Annie, your table is so pretty! I’m loving the red in your home this year, and the plaid napkins just make the whole thing! You can never go wrong with plaid at Christmas!

    So happy to be “hopping” with you again!

    Merry Christmas!


  2. Beautiful holiday table. I love the combination of the plaid napkins and the black floral runner and I am crazy about your chandelier. Thanks for sharing your Christmas cheer!
