I am finally getting my Christmas act together and my shopping is 90% finished! Phew.
We're going to a soup party tonight and I'm bringing Pioneer Woman's
"Simple Chili". While I was shopping for ingredients I spotted these containers of wheat grass.
I knew they were just what I needed for my Christmas tablescape. Mind you, I had no idea what I was going to do with my table at the time, but when you see something you love (that is $2) you take the plunge and trust your gut. Within an hour of being home I had the whole table planned out in my head. You'll have to come back later this week to see if I can pull it off!
Now for some inspiration! Just click on a picture you like to be taken to the post.
Don't be afraid to mix ideas from different tables.
You can keep it simple and still have a beautiful table. See?
Michelle designed this lovely outdoor table. I think I might be using one of these
elements on myself. Thanks Michelle!

This was a non-traditional design for Thanksgiving with a D.I.Y. tablerunner. You could use craft paper in any color to create this look. I will never forget this table because I think it's so stunning.
This is actually a New Year's table but could easily translate to Christmas--Ralph Lauren style.
A beachy Christmas done right. Just grab pitchers from around the house and fill with mixed greens and you have a classic, festive centerpiece.
Cristin prepared this table as "breakfast with Elf on the Shelf". Isn't it great?
I like the layers of different fabrics.
Clean. Simple. A bit glamorous. It's one of my favorite looks.
This is a great, inexpensive idea with punch. Just add silk or real flowers to the base of your candle holder and call it a day! Thank you Martha.
It never hurts to add a little sparkle to your table to add a special tone to your look.
I think I'm going to have a pink and green table this year and I love Shelley's version. She's so smart, she even used a pink scarf as her table runner!

Nate Berkus shows us how it's done. I love the simplicity and the dash of color
on the chairs--unexpected and beautiful.
5 Tips to take away:
1) Layer your table with elements you already have in your home.
2) Votives and candlesticks are good. End of story.
3) Bring the outdoors in--twigs, flowers, berries, greens.
4) There really is no "right" way to create your table. Just play around until it feels good to you.
5) Don't be afraid to break-out from the traditional red and green colors.
Did anything strike you as a something you would
use on your table this Christmas?
