The Christmas season brings can mean that you will be doing some entertaining in your home. And if you are hosting a dinner party or if you just like to have a nicely decorated dining table. We share our elegant dining table that is decorated in red, white, and clear glass.
This beautiful Christmas tablescape for the 2019 Christmas season. Find your inspiration from this centerpiece to decorate your tablescape.
This Christmas season my theme color throughout the house is red. A brighter red that works great in the Foyer as well as on the hot cocoa bar and also this cranberry red.
I love the deep richness this cranberry red has, to me it says elegance. Which in my opinion means the perfect red for the Christmas tablescape.
This fall I did a Beautiful Black and White Fall Tablescape that I absolutely loved. When I made that black and white table runner I knew right away that I would be using it this Christmas season as well.
It brings a nice contrast to all the red, white and clear glass.
The first thing I did to get ready to set this tablescape up was to take down the Fall tablescape.
Then I gave the table a good cleaning and dusting. I was ready to start decorating the table for Christmas.
Christmas Tablescape Centerpiece
Once I had the table cleaned I added the table runner back on. Then I added the garland which I found at Target in their dollar area. I added battery-powered lights to add to the elegance of the clear glass.
This year one of my goals was to make turning on all the lights easy as I could. These battery-powered lights are perfect for the job.
They have a self-timer so I don't have to turn them on. They are on 6 hours then off for 18 hours.
When I added the lights into the garland I made sure to weave them in and out of the garland. This will create a warm glow amidst the garland.
I have this small collection of clear glass Christmas decorations that I wanted to use in this tablescape.
One of the glass decorations is a large deer, I knew I would be making him my center point of the table.
To make the centerpiece look symmetric on each side of the deer I placed the same things.
I added these beautiful cranberry red candles that I found at the At Home store. And my crystal candlestick holders with white candles in them.
Two clear glass and two white glass trees are added as well as these cute little white deer. They helped to tie into the white trees as well as the candlesticks.
I also have two beautiful small clear glass deer that tie in with the large glass deer. Placing one at each end of the table runner to help with balancing the look of the table runner.
For each of the place settings, I added a red charger plate. You can find these at Hobby Lobby, they have many colors to choose from and are inexpensive.
My white plates are Corelle, I love this brand. Very sturdy dishes, I have had this set for some time and they don't have any chips nor has one broke. The red bowls I was able to pick up at Marshalls.
To finish the place setting look off I added a napkin that was folded into each bowl. Placing my crystal stemware at each setting along with a fork and a knife.
Overall I'm really happy with how the table turned out. This didn't cost me much since most I already had.
By using decorations that you already have and moving them to a new location gives them a whole new look.
This is a great way to save money when it comes to decorating not only for Christmas but for everyday decorating.
Don't be afraid to shop the thrift stores or the clearance sections you never know what beautiful item you may find there.
