Christmas table decor goes elegant and simple with these natural and inexpensive ideas. Learn how to DIY a beautiful holiday centerpiece and table setting.
I decided to keep things simple with my Christmas table decor this year and I am thrilled with the results! All it took was a few bunches of grocery-store greenery and bags of fresh cranberries mixed with vintage glasses and simple white dinnerware to create a lovely table for my family to gather around this holiday season.
I’m excited to be joining in the Come Home for Christmas Tours this week, hosted by my friends Jenn and Vicki of 2 Bees in a Pod (i.e. two of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet!). Every day this week, our group is sharing Christmas decorations throughout our homes – be sure to keep reading to the end so you can see the room tours shared each day!
If you’re a new reader stopping by from one of the other blogs on the tour—welcome! I’m so glad to have you here!
Today our tours are all about our dining rooms, so let’s dive in and I’ll show you the simple Christmas table decor that I’ve put together this year.
For the past few years, I’ve done neutral metallics in our dining room, mainly because our orange walls are so bold and I always worry that more traditional reds and greens will clash. Well, this year I seem to have reversed my decorating routine! I decided to do mixed metallics on the mantel in our family room (Click here to see my Christmas Mantel) and add splashes of red and green to my Christmas table decor by using fresh cranberries and greenery.

And I am totally smitten with how my table turned out!
I made the candle ring centerpiece out of fresh ferns and baby’s breath from my local grocery’s florist department. Click here to see how I made this Christmas centerpiece.
These vintage etched champagne coupe glasses belonged to my grandmother, and I like to add them into my table settings whenever I can. They make me feel fancy! Filled with fresh cranberries and simple white votive candles, they create a simply lovely centerpiece. I added a few mercury glass votives between the coupe glasses for extra sparkle.
For my place settings, I stuck to simple white dinnerware topped with a miniature cloche scene of bottlebrush trees and wood veneer Christmas words. I found the miniature trees in the Target dollar section and the wood words at Michaels last year. I love hitting these stores as close to or after Christmas to stock up on craft supplies I can use the following year.
I hope you enjoyed this look at my dining room and my Christmas table decor! I’ll be sharing more of holiday home decor over the next several weeks, but in the meantime, be sure to stop by and see how my friends are decorating their homes for Christmas!
