The Perfect Tablescape for the Holidays and Beyond

The Perfect Tablescape for the Holidays and Beyond

The holidays are a perfect time of year to show off your decorating and tablescaping skills!

I recently teamed up with 307 Events (Traverse City, MI) and The Fabric Menagerie (Etsy) to create an inspiring holiday tablescape scene. And it's just in time for you to decorate your table for the big day so everyone will be able to enjoy it. In this piece, I will share with you the items needed to recreate this gorgeous, holiday-inspired tablescape, as well as, introduce you to additional decoration suggestions including fun tips and tricks for you to try in your own creative way.

Our featured styling was created on a long, dining room table, but you can re-create it on any style of table that you have. The Buffalo Check linen provided by Kate at 307 Events is a must-have item to bring in the classic, comfortable, cabin-chic look.

The vessels are an assortment of vases with linen jackets from 46 & Spruce.

Another decoration I added on several of the vessels is teeny, tiny ornaments. These can be procured from any local craft store and easily tied-on since the vases come with twine and an attached wooden hangtag.

It will be easiest to prep everything for your tablescape first, then assemble it on the table once the pieces are ready. Using a simple combination of greens and flowers like Amaryllis, Lisianthus, Lilies, Stock, Mums, Ornamental Kale, Pepperberry and mixed evergreens, I created simple arrangements in the linen jacket vases.

I suggest using two stems of flowers and one stem of greenery and/or berry in each vase which is perfect for these sizes of vases.

In addition to the vases, we enhanced our tablescape using glass candlesticks, black mercury glass votive candles, and chrome deer salt and pepper shakers.

The fireplace mantle in the room is dressed to impress with 46 & Spruce’s Merry and Bright Spruce Box, which comes with everything you need to adorn your mantle in just one box!

Additionally, we have decorated with seasonally printed Christmas Flag Banner and Trio of Trees provided by The Fabric Menagerie for a bit of festive fun!

One of my favorite touches on this tablescape is the sprigs of foraged evergreen that stretch the length of the table between the vessels. This really brings the outdoors in and adds a lot of texture and life to the table. Since it is all foraged from a hike in the woods, it's very affordable and fun to collect. I also used some of this foraged evergreen in my vases with the flowers.

When your flower arrangements are ready, set them on the table on top of the linen, staggering items by size and intermixing the arrangements and other decorations so that they are placed evenly down the length of the table.

Since the vessels are all different sizes, be sure to mix them up so they are balanced and pleasing to the eye.

To finish, add the pops of greenery in and around the candles and other pieces of decor. These don't have to be placed in water as the evergreens can go a very long time without a drink, and will eventually dry nicely on their own.

Viola! A few simple steps with the proper ingredients and you can create a lavish, holiday-inspired tablescape.

Whether it is for a gathering of friends or for the big family dinner, this cabin-chic styling fits all holiday occasions and can even stretch into the whole winter season!
