a simple Christmas table decoration

Today I am going to share the final piece of my Christmas decor; my Christmas tablescape.  I continued my theme of a simple + modern Christmas into my table and I am really happy with how they came together.  It is clean and easy, which is just what I wanted this years Christmas table to be all about.

I started with the same glass Christmas trees from CB2 that I used on my mantles.  I brought in some of the mercury colored ones on the table and I varied the heights.  If you have followed me for a long time, you know that I typically like long, low, spread out tablescapes, as opposed to one big centerpiece.  I like the people sitting around the table to be able to see each other.  These trees fit that bill perfectly because they come in three different sizes so I could mix and match them to vary the height.

While I used faux garland from Michaels on my mantles, I choose real garland for my table. I love faux snow and I just sprinkled it all over my garland.  Gives it a little extra touch and breaks up all the green.  I found some white jingle bell ornaments from Jo-Ann’s and cut the ornament hangers off them so I could spread them around the table.  I also grabbed some silver ornaments and votive candles to put in the mix.  I love to light them right before we eat.  It gives the table such a pretty glow.  If you don’t want to do real votives, you could also use the fairy lights I used on my Charlie Brown tree or the battery operated votives.

I also got the grey and white ribbon and ornaments that I used on the place settings from Jo-Ann’s.  I love that the grey and white ribbons ties in to the color scheme that I’ve used throughout the house.

For the place settings I used my everyday plates on the table and I combined it with my wedding crystal.  I love the mix of casual and formal.  I laid the plates on a diagonal for visual interest and then just placed my ornaments on them.  Simple as that.
