As Christmas approaches, we’re looking forward to cozy dinners at home at tables filled with our favorite people. For this year’s Christmas tablescape, we found our inspiration from that vision. Cozy, warm, and nostalgic were the words we kept in mind while creating our latest tablescape.
We achieved this 2022’s look by going with a less traditional Christmas color palette. This year, we’re keeping it moody with darker tones in our table throw, flatware, and napkins. A touch of shine (a Christmas must!) comes from our glassware and brass candlesticks. Finally, a sophisticated nod to the season comes in with evergreen touches and whimsical jingle bell surprises.
Our favorite formula
As always, we followed our go-to centerpiece recipe to make our tablescape. Our full blog post on the topic goes into great detail, but these are the quick highlights that we keep in mind when sourcing:
- Textural table throw
- Centerpiece medley
- Illuminating candles
- Accentual serveware
- Sculptural pitcher
Napkins are not only a great way to bring in color and texture to your tablescape, but we’re big fans of trying new folds and placements to give any table setting new life. One of the napkin folds we did for our Christmas tablescape is a show-stopping Christmas tree. Doing it yourself is incredibly easy and makes such a huge impact for each place setting! We finished ours with an Antique Brass Jingle Bell Place Card Holder to pull double-duty as a place card holder for each guest and a tree topper for each tree.

For our floral centerpiece, we selected some beautiful white roses and used evergreen branches for our greenery. The evergreen was a simple way to transform an everyday arrangement into a Christmas classic. Finally, we broke up some of the green and white with berries in a deep, dark burgundy that tied in with our moody colors of the table nicely.
