24 Days Of X-Mas Home Decor

24 DAYS OF X-MAS / Table Aesthetic


Today, let’s focus on table aesthetic and start the week with some Christmas inspiration.

There will be two posts on the subject: this one, treating about a classic and chic table for your Christmas dinner and one treating about unusual table aesthetics, more colorful and crafty.

For a chic aesthetic, I thought about three essentials: copper and gold accents, candles and natural ornaments. For each of these, I picked some items you could use to highlight your table and make it look festive.

Gold & Copper Accents: Let’s be honest, there is nothing more festive and chic than copper. I know it’s been everywhere lately, gold is the new black, but I’m not over it just yet. Christmas isn’t the time to get rid of it either. It’s actually the perfect time of the year to go copper crazy. Candle holder, tableware, ornaments, the choice is endless. Of course, it’s important to find the perfect balance with neutral tones. Unless you’re in for a Marie Antoinette revival; gold, crazy patterns and rainbow colors aren’t such a great idea.

Candles: Ah, candles… It’s an all-year favorite but when it comes to Christmas, it becomes a must-have. It’s not about lighting the whole room with just a few tallow candles, but there’s something about candles that gives a cozy atmosphere. Those reindeers holders are just too adorable not to buy. I also adore the bell tea light holder, very Christmas-y and so lovely.

Natural ornaments: When I think about a chic table aesthetic, I think about rosemary, pine and berries. I’m a nature lover, I’m the kind of person who picks fallen branches and pine cones to create my own wreath. I can’t imagine a Christmas table without some of these ornaments. A garland as a master table centerpiece, that birdcage on one end, a few pine cones near the guests’ plates. It’s all about balance once again, we can’t create a forest ground on our table, but you got the idea. It’s important to have enough empty surface to bring the turkey and dessert.

    We have a super small table for two, so I don’t really put much on it. Usually just some flowers and maybe a candle. But I’m loving everything here! I need ALL that copper stuff and candles 1 & 2 are so cute!

    • Jessica

      Copper all the way! I totally get you! Even though you don’t have much space I’m sure your table will be lovely.

    I love anything eclectic. Mixing and matching different styles, colors, forms and even ages. Vintage items really draw me in. The combination of modern and vintage is right up my alley. I like the examples you present here. There is something timeless about natural decor. Really, I like it all, especially mixed together! Thank you!

    • Jessica

      Thank you so much for your input, it was so nice to read your own preferences! I love mixing modern and vintage as well, it gives the decor a timeless but personal vibe.
