Christmas is the perfect time to try your hand at setting a beautiful tablescape for holiday meals. Today, we’re sharing a traditional take on the season with a nutcracker themed tablescape incorporating rich reds and golds! This reminds me of the type of tablescape that would be perfect in a mountain house for the holidays, don’t you think? It’s cozy, vibrant, and full of nutcracker charm.
My Mom is the mastermind behind this pretty holiday table so I look forward to sitting down to enjoy it over the season with my family. I gifted her these darling nutcracker plates a few years ago and she loves pulling them out each Christmas. They are from Williams-Sonoma who has since changed the style though this year’s holiday plates are equally as beautiful! It looks like you can still find the nutcracker plates on Replacements, Ltd!
Let’s dive in to a few of my top tips for setting the Christmas table!
- Pick a color scheme! Whether it’s natural greens and silvers or vibrant red and gold, narrowing it down to a couple of colors helps keep your tablescape cohesive.
- Mix it up! Whoever said you can’t have shimmer with plaid? A shimmery gold table runner adds a festive touch to a patterned tablecloth. Too much pattern? Then flip it around and pair a patterned runner on a solid tablecloth or directly on the table.
- One of the quickest and easiest ways to add holiday charm to your Christmas table is adding in greenery! Greenery and pinecones add a natural element to the table and a beautiful base for glowing candles!
I hope you’re inspired to set your Christmas table for the holiday season! And if you’re hosting a holiday gathering, we have lots of festive party recipes coming your way soon. Don’t worry, you’ll be covered from table to kitchen!
