A Scandinavian Christmas Tablescape

Christmas Table 8


So much time and effort goes into the Christmas or Holiday dinner..

I like to set up a tablescape that compliments the meal we’ve made to share together.

It should feel special n’est-ce pas?

This year, designing a Scandinavian Christmas Tablescape for our Christmas was pretty simple.

With most of the colors neutral, including the dishes, the food becomes the highlight of the evening.

A white tablecloth, silver candlesticks with white candles.

The champagne flutes have a little gold swirl. Dinner should always begin or finish with a little bubbly, don’t you think?

Christmas Table 5

It’s easy to switch up the accent color every year if you keep the main colors the same..

for me those are white and silver.

I love tablescapes that have a bit of sparkle during the holiday season.

Christmas Table 3

You might recognize the candlesticks and hanging ornaments from last Christmas.

{ My accent color then was Tiffany blue. }

I have four so we can light one each Advent Sunday.

The fifth one in the center will be for Christmas.

The place settings are shown with the same angel feather ornaments that I used for my Angel Advent Calendar..

only this time I printed out names in glitter.

Christmas Table 2

I picked up the red and white table runner and napkins at Golden Acres Garden Senter.

I like folding them and adding them as a layer of color at each place setting.

Usually this is the napkins the guests will use,
but this year I added simple white ones so the colorful ones can remain on the table.

The little red pitcher is from HomeSense.

This little bird { candle } was a gift from my friend Jane last year.

Christmas Table 4

A few simple greens add a contrasting color.

Once I have my table done, it makes every dinner and dinner party before Christmas a special one.
I just wash the linens and dishes and reset the table.

Pretty tablescapes should be for more than just one day.. don’t you think?

What colors will you have at your table and in your home this holiday season?

I’ll be back with a little { healthy } sweet surprise!
