Today, I wanted to share with you how we brought together our rustic, lumberjack-styled Christmas tablescape. I love it, and I hope you do, too! To save money, I made a few things for the table, but I also shopped my house for as many pieces as I could. Another fun way we saved a little cash was by purchasing decor items from various thrift stores. It was really fun to style this table of ours!
I started out with a clean slate. Nothing was on the table, and it was freshly scrubbed down. I don’t know about you, but I can’t think clearly when there’s a lot of clutter on the table!
So, I chose this vintage, plaid throw to be the tablecloth. And recently, I found some scrap faux fur at Joann’s on clearance, so I thought it’d be a perfect layer on top of the throw.
My next layer was the vintage chicken feeder that I bought at the Country Living Fair this year. Ohhhh, I love it! This little piece of farmhouse-goodness has the most perfect patina.
Next, I added some shredded, white paper as filler inside the chicken feeder. Do you have a shredder? It’s the perfect tool for inexpensive decor!
Next, I carefully draped some string lights amongst the shredded paper. These string lights aren’t just any lights….They’ve got a timer, AND they have 8 different display settings! You can read more about that in my Holiday Home Tour 2016 post.
After the lights were draped throughout the feeder, I added my vintage deer and mini trees that I’ve collected from various thrift stores over the years.
So, once I finished up styling the centerpiece, it was time to focus on the individual place settings. I wanted a couple of layers for each plate, so I thought how cool would it be — in keeping with the woodsy/lumberjack focus — to make “faux, moss chargers?!” And I LOVE them! In fact, I wrote a whole post on how to make these beautiful embellishments yourself. (Please click here for the tutorial.) They look amazing, and they’re super-easy to make!
Once the chargers were complete, I added some white plates that I found for 25 cents each at a local thrift store. The white napkins are actually flour-sack dish towels that are folded. Next, I wrapped some thicker-than-average bakers’ twine around each napkin (If you don’t have this string, you need to get some!), and then attached a numbered, glass ornament onto each napkin.
To the left of our china hutch (your left), you’ll see our woodsy hot chocolate bar, and it’s filled with all sorts of yummy goodness! (Click here for that post.)
So, what do you think about our woodsy/lumberjack tablescape? I’d love to hear from you! Comment below, or stop by Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, HomeTalk and Facebook. Your sweet words always make my day!
