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.

It brings me so much joy to style pretty spaces and then to share them with you.

    Your Christmas dining room decor is just what I needed to get my own ideas more defined. I knew I wanted a more simple decorating this year and love the Scandi look. The red white and black with touches of nature provided by the wreaths and trees is perfect. The light provided by your new windows is so lovely.Enjoy all the work you have been doing in your home and have a wonderful blessed holiday.

    Love to spend Christmas with you! Gorgeous dining room! Love the simplicity of it all. A little snow outside and it’s ready for guests. I’ll actually be in Pittsburgh for Christmas, bringing the snow from MN. I’ll have to make that cake for dessert for my son and family, looks yummy!

    I’m not sure what I love the most – is it the window with the wreaths?, the mini evergreen trees, the cake, the table runner – this is so lovely. After hosting every single holiday, b’day, Valentines day, anniversary, etc., etc., for over 35+ years I have passed the baton to my daughter. However, this year I have decided to host a family holiday party about 2 weeks prior to Christmas. I converted over to more simple white and green on my mantel several years ago. I can’t wait to go out to shop for some of those mini trees for my table. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      That should be so fun to watch your daughter take on the holidays, but also nice you still get to do a couple things. Thank you!

      xo Michael

  • Penny Thomas at

    Everything is absolutely gorgeous! My favorite thing is the wreaths on the windows. You mentioned that you used a clear Command hook to hang them. Did you attach that Command hook to the windows? Thanks for your help!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Yep! Just right onto the window.

    Oh Michael, this is absolute Christmas perfection! I adore red and white and it looks so good in this room! It’s all so pretty, but I think the multiple wreaths on the windows might be my favorite;)

    Simply lovely! Nobody marries vintage and modern like you do, and the result is simple, warm and inviting. I’d love to see an evening photo of your tablescape with the candles and rice lights lit. Someone suggested you need to have your own magazine… yes, please!!! You never disappoint Michael.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Ohhhhh! I didn’t think about snapping a photo at night. I’ll have to try that. Thanks for the idea. And a magazine would be amazing. I just don’t know the first thing about doing it. Ha!

      xo Michael

  • Dana at

    I love all your posts Michael! In this post I was taken by the black flatware! I will be shopping for them tomorrow! I think a magazine by you would be awesome!

  • Dolores at

    So, so pretty! I am fairly new to your blog and was wondering if you ever gave the directions for the garland you made for the stairs of your other house. Really enjoy your style.

    Thank you.

  • Jenni at

    It is absolutely perfect, Michael! And your photography is always so incredible!

  • Muriel at

    Yup, you did it again! Love it!

  • Diane at

    Very pretty table setting!

  • Abbey at

    Absolutely beautiful and I appreciate the simplicity of it all. Not many people have $$$’s of dollars to spend on a fancy Christmas tablescape they’ll use one a year, so I appreciate the simplistic and practical, yet classically pretty, design you came up with. Those windows…wow!

  • Catherine at

    The ribbon for the wreaths is a great idea! I can never get my ribbons to look quite right when actually hanging the wreath from them. I have my answer now!! Thanks

  • Julie Blanner at

    Such a classic look! I love the red plaid, and the wreaths on the windows are so festive and inviting.
