October 16, 2021

Are you thinking about Christmas decorating yet?

To be honest, I’ve been thinking about it all year!

If you’re the same way, you’re MY PEOPLE!

I know it’s a bit early for Christmas talk, but with the shipping woes this year and anticipated delays, we need to start thinking ahead in case we need to order something.

2 different Christmas table looks

In this post:

Simple Candle and Jingle Bell Christmas Table Centerpiece – step by step

This festive and rustic Christmas centerpiece came together so effortlessly and I love how it looks!

And since it is all contained in the basket it is a cinch to move out of the way for a fun game night with the family!

If you like to decorate with more of a winter look, keep with the green and white and narwal color scheme.

But if you want more of a traditional Christmassy look, you could add in some red berries and red ribbons.

Start with a shallow basket or tray

Add a tall candle in the center

Arrange wintery greenery stems all around the candle.

If you don’t have stems, garland could work too.

Try to have some hanging slightly over the edge of your basket or tray.

More greenery, and maybe a few pinecones or even red or white berries would look pretty.

Now, add in some jumbo rustic jingle bells

Here’s a LINK to some.

Lastly, tuck in some white flameless candles in various heights.

I love THESE flameless candles because I can set a timer and control them with a remote.

Casual Traditional Christmas Table Scape featuring the jingle bell basket

Traditional Christmas Table Scape with Plaid

Here’s another beautiful idea for your Christmas Table this year!

I love these plaid napkins and red glassware.

This is a dressier table scape with the shiny ornaments around candle as the centerpiece.

Cute wreaths with name tags serve as napkin rings.

It’s is all grounded and made to feel a little less formal with the natural elements like the burlap table runner, natural pine greenery, and wooden dough bowl. Even the plaid plates help bring the formality down a notch.

Wintery greens such as pine, cedar and fir make any arrangement look Christmassy!! Save your tree cuttings for your centerpiece and enjoys the fresh scent of the natural stems all winter long!

I hope you are inspired to create your own beautiful Christmas table scapes and centerpieces this year! Don’t forget to shop early!
