I am obsessed with dishes and therefore love putting together festive tablescapes for any occasion.
Here are some Easy Tips for creating a Christmas Tablescape using a mix of old, new, DIY and repurposed items. I hope these tips will inspire you to get creative when setting your tables this holiday season.
Tips for planning a Christmas Tablescape
Here are a few items that I used to create an inexpensive Christmas Tablescape. These items are DIY projects that I’ve shared previously.
Step By Step Christmas Tablescape Centerpiece
Here is a view of the center piece as it progressed. Cedar candle rings were add to the hurricane lantern as well as bases for the flocked pinecones. This adds warmth and a festive feel to the table riser.
Thrift Store Decor for Christmas Tablescape
Some Thrift Store Items take center stage on this Christmas Tablescape. These items cost only pennies compared to what you would spend if purchasing new.
The thrifted items included on this table include, the hurricane lantern centerpiece, wine glasses, grapevine wreaths used a chargers, and the set of black candle holders.
Here are some additional tips for shopping thrift stores.
The pinecones are foraged on our property and received a snowy flocking using this 2 Step Easy Technique. Faux cranberry’s were scattered on the greenery, to help brighten the table and pull the red and white theme together.
New Items Used for the Christmas Tablescape
One of my favorite things is vintage dishes. However, I love all dishes and although these dishes from Bico Ceramics are new, they definitely have a vintage feel and work perfectly with the DIY Napkins & Tablecloth.

Repurposed Candle Sticks
The thrift store candlesticks look up to date with a fresh coat of chalk paint. Placing the candlesticks at the end of the table creates a unique and unexpected arrangement.
I hope this festive table helps to put you in a festive spirit this week. Although the holidays will be much different this year, it’s even more important for us to try to create cheer and joy in our homes. Have a blessed day!
