And here’s my tablescape…not only burlap and plaid, but I have added glittery stars as well! Let me show you…
To introduce plaid to the table, I have simply added a plaid flannel Christmas ribbon along the edge of my favorite ruffled burlap table runner. You can find a complete tutorial for the table runner here.
I have also layered plaid napkins on top of my favorite Christmas-y dark green napkins using the same fabric…
…that I used to make my wreath and Christmas stockings. You can find a tutorial for the wreath here and for the stockings here.
To add some Christmas-y sparkle, I have added a red glittery star to each place. Once again, I am using my go-to plates for a small gathering…my Chris Madden Felice dinnerware…a $10 Goodwill find for a set of four…nested on silver chargers. My Gorham Octette pewter flatware with its chunky handles is perfect for this tablescape!
I like to mix it up…elegant with rustic, fine glassware with inexpensive…and so I am using my Goodwill $1.00 wine glasses with my Irish lead crystal goblets…fun! I’ve added a red ornament to the wine glasses for a little extra color.
I’ve layered on lots of faux evergreens and berries with one of my favorite decorating finds this Christmas…Pottery Barn’s German glitter stars…a fun find from their outlet store! They are sprinkled all over my house!
Still more stars…a star-shaped wreath that I found at Goodwill for under $3.00 back during the summer…serving as the centerpiece surrounding a rustic lantern filled with a festive red candle. It is elevated on the Pottery Barn inspired monogrammed serving board that I created for Thanksgiving…super easy and inexpensive! You can see how to make one for yourself here.
My Kosta Boda votive holders are adding even more sparkle to the table…looking like little ice sculptures!
In the background is my hutch, still filled with my favorite blue and white transferware. I love it so much that I decided to make Christmas work around it by adding some pops of red.
My favorite addition…my shabby tool box stuffed with more evergreens and berries topped off with more red glittery stars.
And on the buffet…my burlap découpge deer beside my grandmother’s dough bowl sporting some seasonal sparkle! You can find out how to make your own deer by clicking here.
And there it is…my starry burlap and plaid Christmas tablescape! All I need now is my family gathered around with two little high chairs added at each end for the grandbabies! It’s almost here! Are you ready?
