Today is December 1st, so the countdown to Christmas has begun! I strung up an Advent Calendar in my daughter’s room, and she’s been anxiously awaiting the beginning of December. I’m going to mark the occasion by sharing my Woodland Christmas Tablescape.
I’m happy to once again join my table stylist friends for the Christmas Tablescape Blog Hop, graciously hosted by Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate.
My inspiration for the table came from these paper mâché deer. I bought the pair at Joann Fabrics during the Black Friday sale two years ago. I knew they would make a great centerpiece. I’ve previously used them for my Self Service Holiday Drink Station and last year’s Rustic Plaid Woodland Christmas Tree.
I knew I wanted to use this fabulous pinecone fabric that I had in my stash. I had to hem the raw edges. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough to cover the table, so I put it down on the diagonal.
The transferware plates belong to my 88 year old mother-in-law. These are her everyday plates that she let me borrow. They are The Friendly Village by Johnson Brothers. I love how they coordinate with the tablecloth!
I made the napkins using a deer stencil from A Maker’s Studio with brown paint. I cinched them at the top with acorn napkin rings that were also used in my Vintage Inspired Neutral Thanksgiving Tablescape.
I love the look of evergreen placemats, but I’ve been unable to find them. So, I improvised and cut some fresh cedar branches from my yard and tucked them under the plates! Voila!
The flatware was tied casually with jute twine.
Two Dollar Tree mini trees are displayed at opposite ends of the table. I covered the plastic bases with burlap.
I put together two simple arrangements of evergreens and holly in these green glass urns.
The green wine glasses are from Dollar Tree.
The birch log candle holder was a thrift store find.
The final touch was a smattering of pinecones on the table.
I hope you enjoyed my Deer Inspired Woodland Christmas Tablescape. I had a lot of fun setting this table! Now be sure to check out all of the other lovely tables below!
Until next time!
