Set the Table with This Easy Evergreen Tablescape
If there’s one thing that instantly makes a holiday dinner feel like a fancier occasion, it’s an elegant tablescape. There’s a tendency to do something fussy or spend a lot of money on home decor, but it really takes little more than a few easily sourced materials to create a perfectly festive look. Here’s how we’ve created the striking, rustic tablescape you see above.
Clippings Are Critical
Most Christmas tree vendors have lots of stray clippings…and nothing to do with them. Next time you walk by a Christmas tree lot, ask if they have any evergreen clippings available. They last for a while and could definitely come in handy when setting a holiday table.
Set the Scent
Evergreen clippings will go a long way when it comes to visual appeal, but when it comes to scent it’s worth investing in a few candles to set the mood. Glade® has created a limited-edition Icy Evergreen Forest fragrance, and it’s the perfect touch for adding a crisp and joyful winter mood to your tablescape, with notes of winter pine and freshly-fallen snow.
Stick with an Easy Color Scheme
Think natural when it comes to working with a winter tablescape. A neutral snow-white tablecloth, evergreen branches, and twinkly candlelight are all you need to set the space. From there, you can make almost any place setting work. Dress up the table with pinecone place card holders (just pop name tags into pinecone fronds) and you’re all set!
