December is filled with opportunities to gather around the table with family and friends. That is what makes this month so cosy and joyful, don’t you think?
A Christmas table can be set in a million different ways. I like to keep it rather simple, though. Most often the table is set in a hurry right before the guests arrive…
Well, but with some basic elements the table setting doesn’t need to be that complicated or time consuming. What you see in this styling is basically what my table settings in December will be filled with.
A bit dark and moody, maybe, but lightened up with brass, flowers and green branches and these cute little snowflakes on a string. I guess I have to compensate for the missing snow outside 😉
I have recently invested in this beautiful black linen table cloth from Himla – such a nice quality and big enough to cover a Christmas table with many guests. On this table I have added linen napkins but it could just as well has been paper ones.
My tables are most often filled with vintage accessories of different kinds. Most of them are inherited and bring along good memories from family members that aren’t here anymore.
And last, but not at least, the flowers! Flowers and green branches are so important for a nice tablesetting. It doesn’t have to be that much. Just a few small branches directly on the table or a couple of small vases with some flowers in, are plenty. As I have mentioned a few times all ready, I’m a fan of holly for Christmas and as you can see they are on the table, too 😉 Eucalyptus is also beautiful for Christmas and so are the many typical Christmas flowers as Hyacinths and Amaryllis (seen here).
For Christmas eve I think I will also ad some red flowers of a kind, just to make it a bit more formal and “Christmassy” 😉
Do you have any plans for your Christmas tablesettings? I would love to hear about them 🙂
Have a nice evening!
