I sadly will not be setting the table for Christmas this year…aside from maybe some paper plates + take-out haha. Baby boy is due just over a week prior to Christmas, so I’m really looking forward to just relaxing and enjoying a very low key holiday. However, that hasn’t stopped me from dreaming up Christmas tablescape ideas for ya’ll!

Continuing my partnership with Yankee Candle this year, I was excited to see their new collection for the holidays. Fragrance is such a strong component of making memories. More-so during the holidays than any other time of year. So when you start incorporating fragrances like Snowglobe Wonderful or Spun Sugar Flurries into your yearly traditions, it just further solidifies those memories for years to come! One of my favorite memories {that I still do to this day} is lighting a ‘fir’ or ‘spruce’ candle while trimming the tree. It’s like the holidays officially kick off once you smell that fragrance fill the house.

Winter Blues

Some may consider it non-traditional, but I absolutely love decorating with blue + white for the holidays. I prefer our holiday decor to be a natural extension of our home, which includes hues of blue. Yankee Candle’ Snowglobe Wonderland instantly transports me to a wintery wonderland. I envision faux snow incorporate into a centerpiece, with layers + layers of blues and whites.

This is a great way to incorporate china you may already have! I collect blue + white pieces. Sometimes in sets, but also just pretty one off pieces that catch my eye while antiquing. So for a winter blue theme, I think a mix + matching your plates and napkins would be beautiful. While adding some continuity through classic glassware: stemmed wine glasses and crystal water goblets.

Merry Merry

A classic combination that can go one of two directions: traditional + classic, or bright + playful. Although I think I somehow made a match in the middle. Taking inspiration from Spun Sugar Flurries with this color palette, and a touch of whimsy with a sugar rimmed coupe. Yet, this theme leans more traditional with the idea of layering in heirloom bone china atop a fun, block-print styled tablecloth. Love the combination! And you can easily mix it up with different cutlery + glassware to suit your personal style.

TIP: mix + match glassware is such a fun way to give your tablescape a little more depth. Having every place setting the exact same can get a little one note sometimes. And when in the intimacy of your own home – mix things up!

Woodland Greens

A little more of a masculine lean with this theme. Inspired by Yankee Candle’s Winter Night Stars fragrance, which boasts notes of Ivory musk, woody + eucalyptus. Love the nods to the outdoors in this fragrance – it’s the type of candle I enjoy burning all day long and never tire of it.

Taking inspiration from not only the candle color itself, but also the overall idea of being in a wintery outdoor world. I love the idea of bringing the outdoors inside for your table! From rich toned crockery like these stoneware dinner plates, to fun woodland inspired pieces like these pinecone wreath napkin rings. And adding some fresh herbs or greenery sprig to top off the napkin is always a good look.
