I adore table settings so it’s no surprise that I get jazzed up about the idea of a holiday table. Here are four festive tables for Christmas:
Red and green never goes out of style. For a Classic Christmas table, pair red placemats with festive green napkins and holiday napkin rings. No tablecloth needed. Here I used a lighted garland with two pillar candles on tree candle holders as a centerpiece. I wrapped the garland in an S shape around the candles and tucked the edges in for a seamless look. It’s beautiful from every seat and it will last for years! This is going to be my new go-to Christmas table.

This was my Disney Dinners: Snow White table, which I hosted in December because I knew I wanted to recreate the black forest using live Christmas trees. This is one of my all-time favorite tablescapes. The color scheme is perfect for Christmas! I couldn’t find a runner that I liked so I simply folded my favorite forest green tablecloth into a makeshift runner topped with birch tree vases, mushrooms, and cuttings trimmed from my Christmas tree. For the flowers, I used green hydrangeas, red roses, and white carnations – a beautiful bouquet combo for any Christmas table. To complete the forest feel, I used my real wood chargers and shiny forest green napkins tied with a ribbon.
Wish you could travel this year? Me too! Have Christmas with a twist by setting a Hawaiian Christmas table. I used rafia placemats (they’re so inexpensive on Amazon!), red napkins pulled through tropical flower napkin rings, banana leaf cut outs placed in the center of a table as a faux-runner, and a pineapple centerpiece flanked by two jolly poinsettias. Want a Hawaiian Christmas menu to go with it? Read about my Mele Kalikimaka dinner here.
Who says a Christmas table has to be red and green? I’ve said for years that my Disney Dinners: Frozen table would be perfect for Christmas time, especially if you have kids and Prime yourself a snow light machine for $20. If you live in a warm climate like me, there’s really nothing more magical than snow falling in your dining room on Christmas. I styled this table with an ice blue tablecloth, a furry snowflake table runner (it even lights up!), white birch vases, white flowers, white napkins, and snowflake napkin rings.

Want an icy blue cocktail to go with your winter wonderland table? Simple add blue rock candy to champagne and voila! It “freezes” before your eyes.
I hope this give you some fun ideas for your own Christmas table! Whether you go with candles, flowers, garlands, or magical lights, I hope your table brings you joy and puts you in the holiday spirit.
