Rustic Christmas Tablescape

With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror, we are in full blown Christmas here at North Country Nest, beginning with a fun Christmas tablescape blog hop!

Similar to the Thanksgiving tablescape, I’m joining seven other talented ladies to share our take on decorating a table for the holidays. A few of the products I used are no longer available or are something we had on hand. I’ve rounded up similar items in case you’d like to shop this look for yourself!

I wanted this tablescape to be inexpensive (shocking, I know) yet rustic and fun and festive.

Let’s start with the ‘tablecloth’. I found this utility fabric at Joann fabrics 60 percent off. Gotta love the holiday sales!


The plastic gold plates are from the dollar store.  The other plates and glasses were on already on hand.


The napkins were cut from utility fabric found at Joanns – also 60 percent off. I wrapped them in burlap and secured with a mini-tree-decaled clothes pin found at The Dollar Store.


To make the name ‘tags’ I secured a mini burlap bow to a clear ornament and dropped it in a wine glass.


For the centerpiece, I wanted a mixture of red and gold to pull colors from the tablecloth and the plates.


The flowers and two tall vases I found at the dollar store.


I already had the candlesticks on hand, as well as the wood blocks and deer antlers.

I picked up two packages of cranberries at the grocery store and filled two more vases (these are from Hobby Lobby) along with a cream candle.


To finish it off, I sprinkled gold ornaments and pinecones around the table and called it a day!


I hope this brought some inspiration for your holiday decorations and don’t forget to stop on over and see the other beautiful tablescpaes!

All our best,

    This is really pretty, Kelly! I love the idea of using ticking fabric — SO SMART. Also, I can’t believe those Candlesticks came from the dollar store — they are so pretty!!

      Thank you, Lora!! The fabric was definitely a cheaper way to go. And the candlesticks I actually had on hand. I found them at a local occasional vintage shop. They’re my favorite!

    This looks so beautiful Kelly, I love your tablecloth Kelly. I actually bought the same fabric at Joann’s the other day and made some Christmas pillow cases out of them 🙂

      Thank you, Tara! It was nice to think outside the box a bit and find something a little more inexpensive. 🙂
