I love styling my table for every holiday, but that doesn't mean I have the time and effort to put everything I have into every tablescape and centerpiece. I wanted to share a few easy hacks I've learned that allow me to save time and money but still have a jaw dropping festive table for Christmas!


Curtain Table Runner

You read that right! I love the embroidery detail on my family room curtains, and I'm not using them right now because I hung thick velvet curtains for the winter months! I laid the curtain out on my table and gather it in the middle to make it narrower. I folded it a few times until it was a wider version of a table runner and I didn't have to spend a dime on new table linens!

garland as a centerpiece

I LOVE centerpieces, but laying a nice full garland down the center of my table can be just as beautiful as taking the time to arrange flowers or candles! After I laid down my garland, I just nestled some ornaments into the greenery for a little sparkle. Here's another type of garland that would look gorgeous!

Bow napkins

I saw a tutorial for these last year, but I just made them for the first time! They are absolutely adorable and the red plaid just pops on my fairly neutral Christmas table. Find the simple tutorial here!

Fresh Greenery Centerpiece



I made this centerpiece last year with greenery I cut from my neighbor's yard (with permission) I love that it is low profile so you can easily see others at the table! Don't miss this video to see how I made it! Feel free to add in some flowers for color, but it looks stunning on its own! Or add a few ornaments to the top for a little sparkle!



Don't miss my holiday brunch table setting from last year with these sweet marshmallow snowflakes! I hope you find some inspiration here for a table scape that is both simple and stunning! Merry Christmas!
