Metallic elements combined with whimsical woodland creatures create a beautiful holiday tablescape that is approachable yet elegant.

Woodland Glam Holiday Table Setting
My teenage boys are no longer little, but that doesn’t stop them from wanting traditional, cute, and whimsical Christmas decor. Unsurprisingly, they aren’t big fans of the more formal and elegant decor I am drawn to. I always try and accommodate the tastes and opinions of my family members when decorating, but this year in particular, I want them to love every room! Keeping their tastes in mind, I headed to my local Christmas Tree Shops store to pick out some new holiday dishes. If you’ve never shopped at a Christmas Tree Shops store before, I highly recommend it! Every shopping experience feels like a treasure hunt with their ever-changing selection of affordable home and seasonal decor and prices that cannot be beat.
Christmas Tree Shops currently has several adorable holiday dishware collections to choose from, and I especially loved the woodland creature plates and mugs.
The neutral winter theme ensures that I can use them all winter long and the woodland theme is perfect for our home in the country!
To glam up the look, I paired the dishes with these gorgeous beaded placemats.
The silver beaded table runner, snowflake placemats, and round beaded placemats were a steal of a deal! They are absolutely gorgeous and will look great through New Year’s.
Tip: Use different coordinating placemats and/or napkins at the ends of the table to create an additional layer of interest on your table.
Layered Table Runners
Tip: Table linens such as tablecloths, table runners, and cloth napkins are great ways to add texture and dimension to your table.
I don’t often use tablecloths when creating a tablescape, but I do enjoy adding texture and dimension with table runners. I found this silver lace-edged, snowflake table runner at Christmas Tree Shops and knew it would look fabulous layered underneath the beaded snowflake runner. The cloth runner is a similar shade as my dining table but adds an elegant touch!
Simple & Elegant Centerpiece
Not wanting to detract from the beautiful table runners, I opted to keep my centerpiece very simple and elegant. I found the silver candelabra at Christmas Tree Shops in the candle and lantern section of the store.
To add some life to the table, I cut some fresh evergreen sprigs from a tree in our yard and added the greenery around the base of the candelabra.
I wanted to add just enough green to brighten the table without covering up the beauty of the table runners!
The candles provide romantic mood lighting to dine by day or night and look beautiful with the rest of the decor.
Creative Napkin Display
Tip: Delight your guests by styling each napkin in a creative manner!
Christmas Tree Shops has a wide variety of cloth napkins to choose from as well as a wide assortment of holiday napkin rings. I opted to create DIY napkin rings using bell ornaments, ribbon, pinecone cutouts, and fresh sprigs of greenery.
Winter Wonderland Decor
Tip: Don’t forget to decorate the rest of the room to match the theme of your tablescape!
Using what I already had on hand, I decorated the rest of my dining room to match the elegant woodland glam Christmas theme of the table.
