My 2014 Christmas Table Setting!

With Christmas around the corner, I wanted to share my DIY Christmas Table Setting! The goal was to mix tradional holiday decor with rustic charm, by fusing sparkle with natural elements.

For the main centerpiece, I placed thin tree branches along the stretch of the table to bring the outdoors in.  Red berries & pinecones were integrated to add color and texture. Mercury tea light holders were scattered throughout the branches, which mimicked the warmth & glow of a wood burning fire. To add glitz, a martini glass vase was placed in the center of the table to showcase an assortment of ornaments. This was the perfect vase height because it did not interfere with sight lines when seated for dinner.

Each place setting, had a tiny box which contained a small present. The cardboard boxes were purchased at Target and a snowflake ornament & ribbon were added for a festive flare. A fun surprise for guests to open when seated!

I hope this inspires you to get crafty and create your own festive table setting! Have a wonderful Holiday Season & Happy New Year!!!
