It’s that time of year again, already Thanksgiving decor has disappeared in stores for Christmas decor to take its place. Whether we are ready for it or not the year has slipped away and carols have begun playing here at Rosevine Cottage and we’re on the verge of entering the Christmas rush. Leaving us to wonder how it possibly came so fast.
To help you prepare for Christmas we thought we’d teach you how to design a beautiful centerpiece for Christmas table!

Decorating A Christmas Table
Crafting a beautiful Christmas table is one of my favorite Christmas tasks, it’s a bit like having a store window inside our house!
What you’ll need to create a Christmas table:
- Table cloth
- Table runner (optional)
- Placemats (optional)
- Christmas Decorations – Greenery, LED lights, candles, Christmas table trees, small Christmas houses, even ornaments, and lanterns would be a great choice.

Creating a beautiful centerpiece for a Christmas table is easier than you think, with some quick planning and gathering supplies you can make a professional-looking Christmas tablescape. We put together some tips to help you create one of a kind Christmas table decorations.
- Just like decorating a Thanksgiving table you’ll want your Christmas centerpiece to be low enough that everyone can see each other.

How To Create A Centerpiece For Christmas
This Christmas centerpiece is one of my favorites that we’ve done, it reminds me of the Christmas Carol’s Christmas past. For this look, I was able to use some beautiful antiques and reproductions to create a charming centerpiece for Christmas table.
For this centerpiece for Christmas we used:
- White Faux Fur Table Runner
- Old Books
- Flocked Miniature Trees
- Reproduction Pull Toys
- LED Mercury Ornament String Lights
- LED “Fairy” Lights
- Old Letters
- Mercury Glass Ornaments
- Miniature barn sugar bowl
Begin by placing the table runner down the center of the table, follow that with three stacks of books (one in the middle, and two to either end of the table). Place flocked trees between the stacks of books to fill in the gaps in your centerpiece for the Christmas table. Sit a candelabra on the middle stack of books.
Place a wooden pull toy on either side of the candelabra and book stack. Sit mercury glass ornaments here and there on the table, for a touch of sparkle. Run LED lights down the table weaving it back and forth around your Christmas centerpiece. Add a cute miniature barn to one stack of books, and another small horse pull toy to the other stack of books. Place a letter or two here and there and this Christmas table is complete.
Decorating A Christmas Tablescape
Decorating your table for Christmas is a fun way to create a festive space for your whole family to enjoy! A centerpiece for a Christmas table is a work of art and will set the tone for the meal as you gather with your loved ones. Remember to think outside the box when choosing decor, and even go hunt around the yard or neighborhood for beautiful natural elements you can incoperate- just make sure you’re not taking it from a neighbor’s yard.
