And…here is the result! I wanted a simple look with lots of texture and natural accents with muted shades of the traditional Christmas red and green.
But perhaps my favorite thing about the tablescape is the centerpiece…
…lots of Christmas color tucked in a great old vintage galvanized tool box that I found at the antique fair in Braselton, Georgia this fall! It was love at first sight…and it was only $20! Woo hoo! It was fresh out of someone’s barn…and it had paint splatters and numbers written in Sharpie that I had to remove...
...but I knew when I saw it that it would look fabulous and fit in perfectly with my farmhouse Christmas decor! I added a few mercury glass candlesticks to raise the candles…
…loaded in lots of greenery in a variety of textures…
…then topped it all off with burgundy pillar candles wrapped in vintage webbing that I found at one of my favorite flea markets. Love it!
Once again, I am using my go-to plates for a small gathering…my Chris Madden cream Felice dinnerware…a $10 Goodwill find for a set of four…nested on grapevine wreaths as chargers. I decided to use my Gorham Octette pewter goblets…perfect complement to the galvanized centerpiece and a great farmhouse look. The wine glasses were a Goodwill find several years ago.
A Johnson Brothers Old Britain Castles Pink Christmas salad plate tops off the dinner plate…along with icy faux fruit!
A fringy grain sack tea towel from World Market serves as a napkin at each place. Doesn’t it just say farmhouse? My Gorham Octette pewter flatware with its chunky handles and rustic look is perfect for this tablescape!
And of course, if it’s winter, my handmade ruffled burlap table runner must be on my table! If you would like to make one of your own, you will find the tutorial here.
I love the way the colors on the table are reflected in the hutch…with even more transferware and greenery!
Can you believe this is the first year I have ever used these plates on my Christmas hutch? It will not be the last!
They just say Christmas to me! If you would like a closer look at my hutch all decorated for the holidays, click here.
On the buffet you will find my grandmother’s dough bowl all dressed for a farmhouse Christmas, too…with birch candles, pine cones and faux cranberries…a very easy transition from my fall dough bowl.
And in one of the chairs…my Pottery Barn inspired jingle pillow. In case you missed the tutorial, you will find it here.
I have already shown you my farmhouse Christmas mantel as well! Can you tell I am all about things galvanized and decorated with grain sack-style ribbons this year?
The burlap Christmas stockings on the mantel were also handmade. You will find a link to the tutorial here.
