One of my most favorite things about Christmas is spending time with family. The memories made around a family table are some to cherish forever, My farmhouse Christmas tablescape is one I can’t wait to spend sitting around with family and friends.
This year, I am really trying to keep it simple. I started my farmhouse Christmas tablescape by making some simple napkins out of flour sack towels. I used a transfer method I found originally on So Much Better With Age. Check her site out if you want to see how they are done!
They really were the inspiration for my whole tablescape this year. I kept the place settings simple.
I layered my plates on top of my DIY rope chargers. I then tied my napkins with a piece of twine. I tied two pieces of rosemary together and added them to the top. Perfect. Simple. Christmas.
I always like to set the table before I set up the centerpiece. That way I know I have enough room for everything.
I started the centerpiece of the table with this amazing farmhouse scale. I love this scale so much I bought two!!
I really wanted to do something outside the box. I think using a scale does a little bit of that.
I have this collection of Rae Dunn pottery that I try to use whenever possible. I love how adorable they are on the scale.
This “naughty” piece is one of my favorites! A few pine cones finish it off.
Once I had the scale in place, I added pine boughs from my front yard. Yes, its just that convenient for me. I have nature at my fingertips.
I mean, how lovely are these boughs? They even had pine cones still in tact!
I wanted to evoke the feeling of gathering around the table, spending hours sipping tea or cocoa, telling stories and jokes.
I set up a little tea station with my Rae Dunn Tea pot, along with some Moscow mule mugs for a fun drink.
I love the way the copper pops against the wood and white accents on the table.
Setting a table doesn’t have to be difficult. It also doesn’t have to be elaborate, or expensive. I pride myself on creating these types of spaces for next to nothing.
Christmas is all about the memories you make and the time spent with family.
I think that creating a space that is inviting and cozy is icing on the cake.
