Come on in and see our Christmas table decorations – combination of classic elements, DIY projects, and plenty of twinkle lights! This post is sponsored by Walmart – all opinions are always 100% my own.
Wow, 2020. It’s been a year, and I cannot believe there’s only a little bit of the year left!
While our holiday plans definitely look different this year, I decided I wanted to focus on what we COULD do instead of what we were missing out on. We usually dress up for Christmas Eve service and then have appetizers back at home on the 24th. Since we’re not able to go to Christmas Eve service, I told my family to still plan on dressing up, and we were going to have a cozy festive dinner at our house.
I wanted to make a fun decorative table for our family so we could still feel those cozy celebratory feelings, but didn’t want to spend a ton of money on the table as well. My goals for this space: to be able to use things I already had, and when I purchased items, I wanted them to be ones that I could use throughout the year. I feel like I really hit the nail on the head with this challenge and I’m so excited to share it with you!
Christmas table centerpiece:
While I was shopping Walmart Home for pieces that would be beautiful, affordable, and able to be used throughout the year, I came across these hurricane vases. I bought some battery operated candles to put in them, and knew they needed a little something else. So I bought some Epsom salt to go in the bottom to look like snow – and chopped up some garland to put around the candles. I was SO happy with the quality and the price of all of these pieces I found at Walmart, and I loved that I didn’t have to step foot inside their store. Between their curbside pickup and quick shipping, I was able to get everything I needed without going into the store.
Can I tell you guys how much I LOVE how this turned out? When you add a bunch of them together, it really makes a big impact.
It looks really sharp on top of this black table runner I bought from Walmart as well. And the dainty fairy lights were a last minute addition that I just love so much.
My family got to see the table today and Heidi’s audible “gasp” was just the sweetest. That’s what makes all of this so worth it to me! There’s still so much magic to be had this Christmas season within the four walls of our home:
DIY elements for our Christmas table:
Due to some shipping delays (anyone else dealing with packages getting lost or majorly delayed this year?!) I couldn’t get my napkin rings to my house on time. So – I got a little creative!
Can you believe I made these napkin rings out of scrap ribbon and a paper towel tube? I really love how they turned out!! (the black and white salad plates are a few years old & no longer sold).
Then I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to make these paper bag stars I’ve been seeing all over the internet this year. Wow what a beautiful statement they make for pennies! I added some battery operated LED curtain lights on that wall for some extra “cozy and magical” feelings.
How will you make simple magic this Christmas season?
I hope that you enjoyed seeing our Christmas table decorations – and I really hope that you’re able to focus on the things you CAN do this season instead of what’s different.
