Welcome to the 122nd Tablescape Thursday!
Christmas is almost upon us. My son and his sweetie arrived today and we haven’t stopped talking, yet. So much catching up to do. I know you are just as busy at your home, so I’m keeping the pics to a minimum this evening. Tonight’s tablescape is one of the tablesettings we’ll enjoy over the next few days. The centerpiece is Colonial Williamsburg inspired and super easy to make. I’ve made this centerpiece for previous Christmas tablescapes and I’ve had several requests to post a tutorial showing how it’s made. I will get that tutorial up either this weekend or for Metamorphosis Monday. Hope you enjoy this holiday table setting!
Found these cute little ornament place cards at a local home/gift shop.
Red Christmas napkins are part of the Martha Stewart line.
Since we normally have a yummy champagne punch during the holidays, I decided to place the Waterford, 12 Days of Christmas crystal on the table for this tablescape. Check out the recipe for the punch in this post: Delicious Champagne Punch for Christmas or New Year’s Eve
Each year I love to make Colonial Williamsburg Holly and Fruit Tree for Christmas.
It makes a wonderful centerpiece for our holiday dinner or can be used as a decoration anywhere in the home.
This year I tied an organdy ribbon around the top of the pineapple that tops off this centerpiece.
You’ll find a full tutorial showing how to make a Colonial Williamsbury style apple/fruit tree in this tutorial: Colonial Williamsburg Apple Tree Centerpiece Tutorial
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Looking forward to viewing your beautiful tablescapes!
