A beautiful Christmas table setting idea to file away

(Photo and design credit goes to Bev at Flamingo Toes.)

I always like to find ideas for special table settings that are festive yet simple.  Here's one that I will definitely be filing away to use this Christmas!

You see how uncomplicated this Simple Christmas table setting is -- just a white tablecloth, red runner, then round white place mats and red fabric napkins.

I really like the color scheme that Bev has used, but it would work with many other colors as well.

The centerpiece is so pretty!  Just a cake plate or server with a whimsical tree at the center and Christmas balls poured around the tree, and then a few bottle brush trees arranged at the base of the plate.  This is just my style.

But in case it's not your style, Bev shares two other table setting ideas in the very same post: 3 simple holiday table settings, so head on over to Flamingo Toes and have a look.  You're sure to find a bit of inspiration!


  1. It is very festive and colorful! I do like bottle trees, but have been working hard at releasing all Christmas ball ornaments. Now I’ll regret it. Always the way once I’ve decided to declutter.

    You have done an amazing job with all the Christmas in July postings! This is a true resource. 🎄

  2. Good morning Mrs T! I am enjoying some quiet while my family still sleeps so I thought I would pop by and see your center piece. That is very cute and simple which I like when the Christmas dinner table is spilling over with china and other pretties. I like that it is elevated too. Thanks for sharing; great idea! I may try decorating my own bottle tree for this. Enjoy your day. Blessings...Sandi

  3. This tablescape is just my style. I've enjoyed reading your CIJ posts!

  4. So pretty and yet so simple. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I love Christmas tablescapes. Have you ever read the blog Between Naps on the Porch? She has a tablescapes feature, I think it's weekly and during the holidays, there are some amazing ones.

  6. nice tablescape. Love the dishes. I want some like these but in white
