Winterberry Christmas Tablescape

Christmas tablescape ideas that include using natural elements and a DIY custom place card!Hello and welcome to week #2 of Christmas Tidings! We’re each featuring a Winterberry Christmas Tablescape and to top things off we also have a giveaway. Winterberry by Pfaltzgraff is a timeless collection of Christmas china that fits into any decor and any budget. Available at Macy’s, it’s easy to start with just a few pieces and add to it every year. 

Winterberry Christmas Tablescape featuring DIY place cardsFor my tablescape I kept things simple and tried to work in some natural elements. I used wicker chargers, burlap runners and preserved boxwood.

DIY Christmas Place CardFor the place cards I used my good old inkjet printer and printed our names on card stock. I used double sided tape to attach the ribbon together after looping it through the wreath and a bit more tape to attach the card to the ribbon. I got the little wreaths from Antique Farmhouse. As a substitute for the boxwood you could also use little grapevine wreaths and perhaps add a little greenery. I know Hobby Lobby has tiny wreaths for just a few dollars because I used them in this Acorn Wreath project. 

Pfaltzgraff Winterberry Christmas Tablescape To go along with my table settings, the nice people at Pfaltzgraff sent me this Snowflake Egg Plate. I know it should have delicious deviled eggs in it…so please forgive me for substituting these little ornaments. Making deviled eggs just wasn’t in the cards!

Christmas decor using natural elements like boxwood and pine cones.I wanted to show you what I did with my giant pine cones this year. I wasn’t sure I would be able to top last year’s idea but I think I may have done just that. I love them in the silver urns. Sort of a mix of shiny and rustic. It literally took five minutes to plop the pine cones in the urns and add the greenery.  Can’t beat that for easy and quick!

Grain Sack Wine Bottle Cover Gift WrapI just listed a few of these grain sack wine sleeves in my Etsy shop. I hate to waste any part of a grain sack so I thought these would make a lovely gift for a special friend or hostess. I had a blast making the little pom poms too…in fact I have a project coming up where I use them and it actually turned out pretty good. Wonders never cease.

Don’t forget to visit my friends to see how they used their Winterberry!

  19. Ann, everything you do is beautiful.

  20. Oh, Ann, your home is so lovely. When i was seventeen i was invited to my first Bible Study and walked into a home very much like yours and i knew that i knew that i wanted what these ladies had that caused them to make an environment of grace like that…and after they introduced me to Jesus then I knew that I knew I wanted a home like this lady had so I could invite lost little girls in and they could be found. Whenever I visit Your home it brings those long ago sweet memories to mind.

  21. What a beautiful table! Wish I could enter to win the lovely dishes, but I’m not on Facebook.
