It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Let’s get into the holiday spirit by creating a beautiful Christmas tablescape. This year, set the scene for holiday cheer with this inspiration.
The Perfect Christmas Tablescape Centerpiece
Your tablescape should start with a stunning centerpiece. I like to make a centerpiece garland that goes down the middle of the table. This adds a beautiful element to the table but also allows for easy conversation with the people sitting across from you.
I layer greenery onto the center of the table, then I layer in different frosted greenery stems, frosted berries, frosted peony faux flowers, and pine cones into the garland.
You could also add red taper candles and wood candle holders to add height and a pop of color. Don’t forget to light the candles when dinner is ready!
The Elegant Christmas Silverware
Use your best china or something festive like these holly and ivy dishes and your finest silverware for a touch of elegance. Top off each place setting with a napkin ring. I used these reindeer napkins rings but it would have been even cuter if I had been able find something holly or evergreen branches. For an extra pop of color, try using green or red napkins.
The Charming Christmas Place Settings
With just a few simple supplies, you can create a charming Christmas tablescape that will impress your guests and get everyone into the holiday spirit.
A key element of any Christmas tablescape is the Christmas plates. One simple way to dress up your Christmas table is by stacking plates in an interesting way.
To create a charming Christmas tablescape, start by stacking plates of different sizes and patterns.
I bought these dishes at Homegoods in 2020 and probably are not available any longer. Here is a link to a used set of these dishes: INHOMESTYLEZ HOLLY CHRISTMAS DINNER PLATES SET/4 ETCHED 11″ WINTER HOLIDAY
Here’s another link for a used set on Mercari.

I like to start the base of my place setting with a placemat or a charger like this natural one you see above.
For a festive touch, try using Christmas-themed plates or patterned plates in coordinating colors.
Next, layer your plates with the largest at the bottom. You can decide if you’d rather have your napkins in between the plates.
Or on the side of the place setting using a napkin ring.
Another fun idea is to make each place setting special by setting out a small gift for each guest. Place the gifts on top of the plate or off to the left side above the plates.
Not sure what to give? A scented candles some chocolates or candy, an ornament, or something that the person will love. Make it personal if you like.
The Little Christmas Table Details
The beauty lies in the details and the best Christmas tablescapes usually have some added details. Let’s take a closer look at a few of my additions.
I added green throw pillows to the main chairs to bring in more of the green color to tie in with the napkins.
I added these little Christmas house salt and pepper shakers. They are great to put at each end of the table if you have a large table like I do and they help fill any gaps on the table.
I also love to add a cake or dessert on a cake stand as part of my centerpiece accents as well.
This Christmas, create a beautiful tablescape that will impress your guests and get everyone into the holiday spirit! With a little bit of planning, your Christmas feast will be remembered for years to come!
