You’re in for a treat today because I’m inviting you to join me in my dining room to share my vintage modern-inspired Christmas table decor.
Yes, my friends, I’m excited to show you my Christmas tablescape. It’s a joy to decorate my home for the holidays and then share the results with you. I hope that these tours offer ideas and inspiration for decking your halls if you’re inclined to do so. Last week I posted about my Christmas Kitchen Decor and today we’re over in the dining room to check out my holiday table setting.
It’s a pleasure to again be teaming up with my Seasons of Home blogger friends. That means LOTS of festive dining room decor ideas for you. Each of the 15+ bloggers has a unique style so everyone will find inspiration. Be sure to click through all of the links at the end of this post.
As you know, I completed a kitchen remodel this summer. My dining room also got a few changes as part of that project, so I’m slowly working to redecorate the space. It’s bare-bones at the moment, but I am making progress. When you see my fall table setting, you will probably notice my new-to-me dining room table!
I was so excited to find this table. I’d been hunting for a vintage dining room table (and am still hunting for a vintage sideboard) and was lucky enough to score this one at a local antique shop. Because my new kitchen peninsula extends a couple of feet into the dining room, I wanted something a tad narrower than the standard width, and this vintage oak table was the perfect fit.
Although I still need a rug, artwork, that vintage sideboard, and more, this space is starting to feel more like I envisioned. And the nice part is, I’m in no rush. It’s fun to be able to style this room as it transitions. It’s like a new space every time.
Now that I’ve given you all the background, let me show you my Christmas table decor!
Vintage Modern Christmas Table Decor:
My inspiration for this table came from several places. First, was the color. I knew I wanted red, black, and wood.
Next was the style. I envisioned a touch of modern, a bit of vintage, folded up in a simple Scandinavian style. I think I achieved that look!
I started with this beautiful white runner with red stitching around the edge. (All sources will be linked at the end of this post.)
From there, I set out my go-to white dinnerware. This is the dinnerware I use every day, and I love it. It’s affordably priced, and you can dress it up or down. It works so well here.
Side note: If you’re looking for some festive music to play while entertaining this holiday seasons, I can help! I’ve created FIVE Christmas music playlist. You can find them all here.
Naturally, I needed some plaid (I can’t seem to get enough!), so I added the napkins.
Because of the matte black of my chandelier, I wanted a few black elements in my Christmas table decor to tie it into the space. (If you remember, I did the same thing with my fall tablescape.) This matte black flatware is gorgeous and worked perfectly here.
The table needed one more black element, so I used these black candlesticks. Every table, especially at Christmas, needs some sparkle. These candlesticks contribute a Scandinavian feel.
For my vintage elements, I turned to glassware. I was lucky enough to find both of these glasses the day before I styled this table. The “holiday cheer” highballs were a must. I was so excited when I saw them because I knew they would fit in perfectly.
And since I can’t resist a little gold and glam, these more traditional-looking water goblets with gold trim were a nice unexpected element. Aren’t they beautiful?
The table only needed a couple more things. For additional sparkle, I strung a set of rice lights down the middle. Battery operated, these lights are a quick and easy way to give a little glow. I also added two mini evergreen trees to the table.
As you may have noticed, I hung evergreen wreaths on my dining room windows. I thought the trees on the table tied them in nicely.
The wreaths on the windows are faux. To hang them, I used these clear Command Hooks. The red satin ribbon is there for aesthetic reasons, though I do like how it looks as if the ribbon is holding up the wreaths.
And to wrap up this Christmas tablescape, I included two sweets. First, the Black Walnut Christmas Cake that I shared with you yesterday. This cake is not only crazy delicious, but it’s beautiful too, making it the perfect centerpiece for my table. (Get the recipe here.) I also added a large red and green candy cane to each place setting as a treat for my guests.
And with that, my Christmas table decor is complete! I’m loving how it turned out. What do you think? Does it make you want to join me for a holiday meal?
It brings me so much joy to style pretty spaces and then to share them with you. As I mentioned above, I hope that my Christmas table decor gives you a few ideas for styling your table for the holidays. Whether you spend the season with only a few people or dozens of family and friends, it’s always nice to create a beautiful, festive, and welcoming space!
