Winter Craft Idea: DIY Holiday Tablescape

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and there’s no better way to get into the spirit than with a gorgeous holiday tablescape that stays current all season long.

We love the striking vignette our visual display team put together in our rustic Christmas Marketplace. They always do such a fantastic job, and this season is no exception.

Luckily for you, this impressive tablescape isn’t just eye-candy–it’s totally doable in your own home, too! Here’s how:

Our Holiday Tablescape

Holiday Tablescape Tip #1: Evergreens are Essential

One of our favorite ways to start off creating a tablescape is by using evergreen branches or an evergreen garland as a base. The lush green hue is a perfect complement to holiday color palettes, and the scent is divine.

Holiday Tablescape Tip #2: Add flair with foliage

Next, warm things up by adding in some brightly colored leaves. Preserving fall leaves is a simple project, but it can take a bit of time. Feel free to cheat by painting oak and maple leaves with warm, metallic hues or by picking up some artificial leaves from the craft store.

Holiday Tablescape Tip #3: Feather the nest

To a lot of folks around here, there’s one sign of fall that stands above the rest: pheasants! These birds are known for their eye-catching feathers, which are sure to catch your eye as you drive down country roads around harvest time.

Those same feathers (again, artificial is fine) will really ramp up the look of your tablescape. Add a few here and there to capture that cozy, country vibe that’s so hot this holiday season.

Holiday Tablescape Tip #4: We go high

Create visual interest by incorporating objects with varying heights–but be sure not to block anyone’s view! These tall glass cloches are a great way to add dimension while showcasing our skinny, statement-making candlesticks and allowing guests to easily see each other.

Holiday Tablescape Tip #5: Get glitzed

Add a little sparkle for the perfect finishing touch. Flickering candlelight (a must-have for cozy winter meals) plays beautifully off glitter and antiqued metal finishes. However, be sure flames are a safe distance from flammable objects, or use flameless candles.

We’d love to see how you decorate your table for the holidays and beyond. Share your pictures with us on Facebook or Instagram!
