In this wild and unpredictable year (pandemic, wildfires, and yes, a divorce), I’ve set my intention on cherishing every celebration, even if it’s much more simple. Christmas dinner is a family tradition for our little family, so to keep that feeling going, I’m creating a cozy table space. Given that we’d been eating from an old plastic card table (which served us well!), I’m so grateful that All Modern sponsored this post so I can share some of my easy holiday table decor ideas with you!
Holiday Table Decor Ideas:
(exact table sold out but this table is similar and so pretty!). I chose a classic table that would accommodate not only our dinners for three but also puzzles, school work, and the weekend game night.
The warm wood creates the perfect base for a cozy holiday gathering, I think. From there, I started layering using these 3 holiday table decor ideas:
1. Use What You Have
If you know me well, you probably know I am not a big fan of buying a lot of items with each season. I saved these glass yogurt jars from the spring and used them as votives for some cozy vibes.
The basic black & white runner can be used year round and feels classy & festive with everything else, don’t you think?
2. Look for Natural Elements
Of course I looked outside for inspiration! We’re pretty lucky with all the greenery here on our property but these petite pinecones are easy to come by. For each napkin setting, I included a sprig of rosemary from our shrub (there are so many rosemary plants in the stores this time of year too!) because the smell totally feels like winter.
3. Add Layers of Texture
Texture is pretty much my magic pixie dust for any space (shhh….) but it definitely adds something extra for holiday table decor. Not only does the table feature some amazing rustic wood texture, the woven placemats, linen napkins, jute string ties, and spiky pinecones keep the table decor from feeling flat.
If you’re also looking for tables, the one I selected is currently out of stock, but this mid century modern table was next on my list!
