Festive Tabletop Ideas

12.01.2015

Today I'm part of a Christmas tour blog hop with some fabulously talented bloggers! We are sharing tablescapes today and since I didn't start decorating until after Thanksgiving I wasn't quite ready to share anything new today so I'm sharing some favorites of mine from the past.
At the end of the post you will find the links for the tour.

I found this vintage looking Christmas decoration years ago and love to pull it out each year. In 2013 I used it in the sun room on the coffee table. It was placed on a wooden pedestal that was covered with faux snow. Looks like this year it didn't make it out of storage. Oops.

This was a tabletop tree I added on the drop leaf table at the end of the sofa. The cute snowman was found at Tuesday Morning a few years ago. I just thought it was so cute.

This vignette was on top of the television cabinet.


This vignette was on the chest in the great room. I had covered a plastic deer in moss and it sat on a stack of books. The breadboard in the back with a small wreath add layers and texture.



In the master I added some ornaments to an ironstone platter and tucked a candle in some faux snow in a pretty glass hurricane on the chest by the bed.

On my dresser I placed two white deer and filled this glass dish with more faux snow and a church ornament and tiny trees.

In the sitting room I placed a collection of Santas on a silver tray atop the table.

Last year I created a lot of faux snow and I loved this vignette in the sitting room. It was so easy to create. I just covered the table with batting for the snow and then filled the urn with some cheap faux trees that I also added a snowy look to. Some light and sheep finished the look.

I filled a large wooden tray with faux snow, added my vintage looking children figures and some little trees on the dining room table in 2013.

Last year the vignette in the dining room was one of my favorites. More tiny snowy trees sat in a vintage berry crate filled with more batting. Each tree was tied with a burlap bow.

I love using trays, crates, baskets, bowls, etcetera to create vignettes on. I filled this large bamboo tray with some greenery, pine cones, antler sheds, a little deer and a glass hurricane filled with more faux snow and a candle.

Layered breadboards, a basket filled with large ornaments and greenery, a wreath and a small St. Nick created another vignette on the chest.

This was a favorite of mine in 2011 when I filled an old tool caddy with pine cones, ornaments, antler sheds, a candle and some rafia trim all set on some greenery from the yard.

Did you find some new ideas? I hope so.

  15. You do such a great job! The past few years I haven't pulled everything out of storage and have really enjoyed decorating with natural things from my yard - greenery, pinecones, ribbons and candles. I love the deer that you covered in moss! I might add that to the house this year.
