My White Christmas Table Decor {Hello Lovely}

Since I don’t yet have images of this year’s Christmas table decor, I hope you’ll enjoy seeing last year’s simple, natural, and romantic table decor for Christmas.

The ingredients are as simple as clear glassware, candlelight, blush roses, vintage ironstone and Fireking milkglass plates, vintage gold ornaments, and English marmalade crocks as vases. When these lovely additions pair with a distressed white farmhouse table, the mood is a sort of hushed, laid back luxe, natural feel.

My favorite vase for roses has always been a white ironstone pitcher, and I’m not particular about condition–crazed is more than okay with this blogger. The roses and small glass votive holders are from Walmart (sold in a set of eight, I think), and the white pierced polka dot ones are Ikea. I found the FireKing milkglass wavy plates at a nearby antique mall for $2 each, and a whole box of old gold ornaments there were $3. The glassware from West Elm includes the simplest style of wee Spanish wine glasses – and my family and guests seem to like using them as an alternative to a glass with a stem. 

If it’s romance you are after with your Christmas decorations or Christmas table decor, I highly recommend turning to candlelight and candlelight inspired colors which are so soothing and gentle on the eyes. The rusticity of our farm table (made from reclaimed barn wood and commissioned decades ago by us) keeps everything from feeling granny-like or precious.

As I type this, it’s Christmas Eve here in the desert, and sweet little quail are parading across the privacy wall in our backyard. Hummingbirds are magically fluttering in a bush, and my son is singing nearby. The sky is blue, the temperature is mild, and there is life blooming all around. I’m spending the holidays here with a big extended family, and there won’t be any formal sitdown affairs this year since the sheer number of guests prohibits it. Instead, we will gather and feast buffet style outdoors. Everyone is bringing their favorites. There will be turkey and ham, an ugly Christmas sweater contest, a gag gift exchange, karaoke, laughter, homemade desserts by me, and I’m sure…a few tears. It’s the holidays after all (the best of times and the worst of times) when hopes get high along with sleep deprivation and even blood pressure when the topic turns to politics or religion. We are bound to disagree on plenty of important matters like how peanut buttery the Special K Bars should be. 

The important thing about the holiday table for me is simply showing up. Everyone has made a great effort to be together for my mom who is fighting breast cancer and the crippling effects of degenerative arthritis. It’s presence over perfection (as author Shauna Niequist calls it). It is staying at the table no matter your faith, personal biases, health, or current level of ‘okayness.’ After all, we’re all broken and simply muddling through as best we can.

I wish you love, peace, and mercy at your holidays tables, and I thank you for visiting mine.

Merry Christmas, dear friends!

    Merry Christmas to you in your desert family home! Your lovely white settings are inspiration for my January theme after Epiphany, but with white paper whites and amaryllis in blue and white porcelain planters, white candles in silver candlesticks, soft harp music in the background. I’m grateful that I found your “Hello Lovely” blog site! Blessings to you and yours.
