Our Christmas Table

As promised in the last post, here are some photos of our Christmas table. I was going for something natural and toned-down but still festive, and I think this look achieves all of those things. Plus, this was super easy to do, so for those of you who have something similar in mind, I will give some tips below on how to get the look. But of course, feel free to take this as inspiration and do your own thing.

We don’t actually own a Christmas tree, but I think I like our piece of driftwood with the fairy lights even better. Also, as you may have noticed, we didn’t even make a tablecloth out of the linen (there was no time), so we just put the linen fabric over the table – rough edges and all, and it worked beautifully.

Instead of a traditional candle holder, I just used a glass vase and filled it with sea sand – simple but effective. I also made a mini rosemary wreath to go around the vase and a larger one to hang on the wall (see below). I won’t share how I did it here, since there are a bunch of tutorials on other blogs (The Pretty Blog has a good one) but I must say it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Also, as you can see, I made some Christmas crackers from brown kraft paper (tutorial in previous post) to go on the table.

I kept the rest of the table very simple, with natural cloth napkins on plain white dinner plates and our small oak serving boards. I also recently bought a set of beautifully detailed glass tumblers, which adds a lovely vintage look to the table. No place mats were needed here.

Don’t worry if you can’t find all the items that I used. You can easily get this look by using what you have lying around the house or in your garden. Just remember to keep things simple. 🙂
