Today I thought it would be fun to teach you How To Create a Christmas Tablescape. This can be as simple or as detailed as you want. This time I chose to use part of my husband’s snow globe collection as the focus. And yet, at the same time adding a few other sentimental Christmas decorating pieces for added interest.
Let me start off by saying that at one point we owned 24 snow globes. But as time has gone on, our homes have gotten smaller, along with our storage space.
So, two years ago my husband decided to give each of our grandchildren a snow globe of their choice. He had SO much fun laying them all out and letting the kids choose their favorite.
It was a little emotional to let the snow globes go. Yet at the same time, I will never forget the beautiful smiles from the oldest to the youngest grandchild. AND, my handsome husband. Priceless, I tell ya.
How To Create a Christmas Tablescape using snow globes, fresh greenery, with family heirlooms can be beautiful and unique.
My place setting is simple and colorful. I have red and white snowflake plates that I bought at Smith’s and the white saucers were a thrift store find. Plus, a glittery snowflake ornament sitting on top.
Each snow globe varies in style, color and theme. So, I decided an overall colorful Christmas theme would be best. OH! Did I mention that each snow globe is a music box, too? AND each of them play a DIFFERENT Christmas Carole?
To start with, I used a faux pine garland, crystallized branches, and fresh boxwood cuttings. I placed each of the snow globes in various spaces in-between the branches and greenery.
I was careful not to place the silver next to the silver. Brown next to brown and so on. You know what I mean?
I thought it would interesting to add a few of the sequin ornaments that my Grandmas made. I can’t even imagine how LONG it took her to make them.
They are always a part of my Christmas decorating and have a sentimental meaning to me. Kind of like the snow globes are to my husband.
With our favorite Christmas mugs as part of the place setting, it added to the sentimental feel of the tablescape.
Using my tall vintage style candle sticks created height. The large crystals added bling and variety to the table setting.
AND, yes, my grandma even made the cute Mr and Mrs Snowman.
