Simple and sweet- and simply sweet.
That is my motto for Christmas decor this year. While I am putting up lots of trees and decking the halls – I am also keeping a lot of the stylings quite simple- and sweet. I recently shared what the outside of the barn and Christmas trees looked like this year. All about that vintage inspired color and charm.
From a flocked tree with colorful lights and vintage baubles to a natural tree wearing vintage ornaments– and today it is about the Christmas that is appearing inside the barn and how to get the look.
A length of fresh garland on the table creates a simple base for a few twinkly stars.
Tip: When using garland on a table- let it drop all the way to the floor to create a little extra drama for the setting.
Add a bit of sparkle
Bring in a touch of sparkle and ambiance with a lit garland. This star garland is one of my favorites this season- I love how the light is filtered on those twinkly stars and creates such a charming look wherever you use it.
Candles and cozy on repeat
Candles are always on repeat over here it seems- and on this table -they set the mood for a cozy candlelit dinner with that cozy glow.
The place settings for this table are simple and sweet with a touch of elegance. I love these beautiful gray stoneware plates (HomeGoods score) for a simple more rustic element. Especially when mixed with the gilded coupes and velvet napkins.
Add a beautiful background
From a twinkling tree to a mirror draped in greens and baubles- the backdrop for the table is key in creating a warm and welcoming feeling.
I draped the fresh garland with a beaded glass garland and strand of battery operated mercury glass pinecone garland.
For a different look using a most beautiful faux garland– head on over to the Balsam Hill Blog– I also shared 2 other table stylings there with different looks to show some ideas for how versatile centerpieces can be and how they change the look of the room in an instant.
What do you think of this simple look in the barn?
Happy Monday everyone.
