I love planning and putting together tablescapes for all occasions but especially for Christmas. The more creative and unique the better.

The Screened Porch Creative Table
Each season the DIY light fixture becomes part of the tablescape because I can’t resist hanging some festive decor in the glass jars. Here, I used flocked twigs & pinecones along with come red birds.

Step 1 – for a Creative Table
First, determine if you want a bare table, table cloth, table runner, etc. Then start to build your table.
Here, I’ve used red craft paper as a table runner. In addition, I’ve added faux greenery stems along the center of the table. You can use real greenery for this step if you prefer.
Using a one of a kind, unique piece is the first step for a creative table setting.
Step 2 – Add place settings
For this next step, I used wooden chargers that are not really chargers, but wooden trays that I found a few years ago at Hobby Lobby.
The Santa Christmas plates are a recent find from HomeGoods.
Step 3 – Be creative with your Cutlery
Today, the cutlery is an antique pewter set from Barenthal and I’ve used a simple greenery wire tie to wrap the napkin and cutlery together for a casual table.
Step 4 – Use Creative DIY Touches
Because this is a Christmas Tablescape, I used some mini Christmas Trees and recycled wine corks as placeholders.
How to make DIY Placeholders
- Mini Bottle Brush Christmas Trees – 8 for $1.00 at Dollar Tree
- Recycle Wine Corks – Free
- Red & White Baker’s String
You can see a quick video tutorial here.
Step 5 – Use Thrift Items for a unique Table
Finally, don’t feel you have to spend a fortune to create a beautiful table for the any occasion. Here, I’ve used thrift store candle sticks and wine glasses. Most of the items inside the cabinet are thrift store or flea market finds, including the cabinet itself.
