Come tour our beautiful rustic Christmas table all set for a holiday meal.
Hi, friends! Before I rush into showing your our rustic Christmas table, I just want to take a moment to wish you a Merry Christmas and say I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
Christmas is a time for me to reflect on the blessings in my life, and one of those is definitely this blog and you, my followers. I can’t thank you enough for your support in this!
We got to spend lots of time with family this past weekend and it was incredibly refreshing.
Christmas Eve was spent cookie baking, looking at lights and attending the Christmas Eve service at our church. This year, we had my grandma and parents with us for the day.
Baking cookies has become one of my favorite Christmas Eve traditions and each year, as the kids get older, it gets more fun. We usually make sugar cookie cut-outs, peanut butter blossoms and chocolate cake batter/peppermint cookies.
I also made fudge this year, since you can never have too much fudge… 😉
Christmas Day was spent opening presents and eating breakfast as a family, and then visiting and eating dinner at my Dad’s.
As I mentioned in my holiday table post a few weeks ago, I got to set our Christmas dinner table this year.
My step-mom is a gourmet cook (seriously, her food is always to-die-for) and one of my favorite things is teaming up with her to throw a killer holiday meal. My step-mom’s style is very much classy rustic (think Pottery Barn) so I went with that as my basis for this table.
I’ve tried to link up to sources (or similar items if the ones I’ve shown aren’t available), but please let me know if I missed anything!
I hope you enjoy it and that it’s an inspiration for how to decorate your holiday table in the years to come.
Welcome to our rustic Christmas table…
The buffalo check place-mats are actually just 12×12 craft paper sheets! That’s one of my favorite budget-friendly table setting tricks. And the best part? They can be thrown away after dinner!
This table runner is actually a faux fur throw! I got that idea from a few of the tables in last week’s post. 🙂 The cute truck plates came from Pottery Barn.
I made these mercury glass candle holder place markers (the idea came from Katie over at Little House of Four) and I put names on one side of the tag and generic Christmas phrases on the other side so they can be used for Christmas decor even when they aren’t on the table!
I love this ceramic jug with metal handles!
My favorite part of this table set-up was the mood that came with it. The candle light and soft fur runner made for a warm and cozy atmosphere. We lingered at the table well into the evening. 🙂
These are memories I’ll cherish for years! I would love to see pictures of your holiday table – please share some in the comments below. 🙂
