How To Create a Farmhouse Christmas Day Table Setting including Video


I hope you all had a peaceful Christmas and were able to see loved ones, even if it may have only been online.  My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who lost people this year. I myself lost my father and father-in-law so Christmas was a bit harder this year. Decorating kept me busy and reminded me of all the things I am grateful for and the people who I am blessed to have in my life. 

Christmas lunch was celebrated at our house, as it is most years. I like to go all out with decorating the house, and the table setting is no exception. 

I even put together a little time lapse video for how I achieved our table setting that I'd love you to check out. I'm still an iMovie novice, but I'm learning. 😁

Looking back, I probably could have run an iron over the tablecloths. Oh well, never mind.

I used a similar centre display to my previous table setting, incorporating gold, green and white, and using items mainly from Bed Bath n Table.

Combining sparkling glittery trees and green twinkling garlands. Scatterings of brown and white pine cones.

Intertwined with tinkling white bells and white berry picks. 

And a few miniature forest friends. 

For my place settings, I used a combination of different alternating designs. The main reason I had to alternate my table place settings was because I didn't have 10 of everything. But, by adding similar items to  each place, everything blended seamlessly.

I alternated between a round gold string placemats on an Ikea water hyacinth placemat and the same round gold string placemats on shimmery pale gold placemats from Big W.  I also alternated the style of white plates, the style of cutlery, and the colour of my bonbons.

And the items that were the same included gold flecked napkins also from Ikea, wrapped with twine string and complimented with a sprig of greenery with white berries (to tie in with the centre garlands).  And the name cards I created in Pages, printed, cut out, folded and placed on each plate to add a personal touch.

And the glow of tiny warm white fairy lights in the centre of the table added a bit of cosy to the table.

I needed to bring in a few black metal patio chairs, and our patio bench seat. But with the addition of some fluffy seat cushions,  everyone was comfortably seated as well.  

And we all had a lovely lunch and ate way too much, which is forgivable on Christmas Day.😉 

Sending you all my warmest Christmas wishes,
