Holiday Tablescape Ideas Easy and chic tips for a festive table

Entertaining this holiday season? Then between mastering your mom’s stuffing to getting the house in order, we know you already have enough on your plate. Literally. But that doesn’t mean an Instagram-worthy holiday tablescape isn’t possible.

Here, we’ll show you three ideas that are so easy you can pull it off in between turkey bastes. And we promise it will look like Martha Stewart herself set the table.

Idea #1: Candles & Garland


If you have some candles and garland stashed in your holiday décor boxes, then you have yourself a go-to table centerpiece. The key is using various heights, and spreading them out across the table. After that, the simple strand of garland takes it from everyday cute to winter wonderland.

Pro tip: Decorative items like the lanterns add an extra festive element.

Idea #2: Vases & Holly


We’re sprinkling a dose of holiday cheer on the traditional vase centerpiece. Proving that more is always merrier, you can get wow results by using an assortment of vases. Then, we traded in the flowers for sprigs of evergreen and holly.

Pro tip: Your local Christmas tree seller may have fallen branches they are willing to give away.

Idea #3: Lanterns & Lights


Get ready to twinkle all the way with our last holiday tablescape. We already know that candles work great as a centerpiece, so we added some holiday magic with a few simple additions. First, we wrapped the candles in battery-operated LED lights, and then displayed them inside lanterns. A sparkly table runner and garland pull it all together, and we promise it takes no time at all!
