Snowy Neutral Christmas Tree Tablescape

Snowy Neutral Christmas Tree Tablescape

Say whaaaat?

Yes! Today is all about Christmas tablescapes from me and seven of my blogging buddies.


Snowy Neutral Christmas Tree Tablescape

Hello Friends and welcome to my first ever Christmas tablescape (and Tablescape Blog Hop). I know it seems super weird that after blogging all this time, I have never put together a Christmas table. Yikes. And super yikes. But alas… here we are.

And so, after the dining room makeover this Fall (click here to see), I was totally inspired to get this room going for Christmas.

And in my mind’s eye, I had a vision.

I know…..that sounds scary. But just bear with me.

This Christmas tree tablescape is made of trees with different colors and textures | #christmastreetablescape #neutraldecor #snowy #christmastablescapes | www.thechelseaproject.com

I wanted to use natural-looking elements, but maintain a rather formal and traditional style.

I also wanted the table to have its own sense of self. What I mean by this is that I did not want this tablescape to look like just another copy of the latest trend. Traditional elements are timeless and classic. If updated correctly, they will work into any decor without missing a beat.

And this is how I settled on creating a Christmas tree tablescape.

What could be more timeless than Christmas trees?

So I gathered and gathered….and gathered some more…..all of the traditional elements I could find. For this tablescape, it was all about texture, texture, AaaaaND texture.

And then….just for giggles… I sat them on top of a “snowy” tablecloth. My faux fur hatip to the unexpected.

And then stepped back to marvel at how well this mixed-batch Christmas collection shares the space with the dining room diva. You know what I’m talking about, right?

The one piece of furniture in the room that is so demanding, I have to watch what I place around her. Yep, you guessed it. The hot pink hutch. Friends, take it from me, she is a total non-compete piece. 

Don’t even try. 

I mean, why sweat the load when it’s so easy to just go neutral?

And at the end of the day, with the neutral centerpiece and tablecloth, who even notices the red and green on the plates?

Not me, I tell you. Not me.  LOL.

And so, that’s how my snowy neutral Christmas tree tablescape came to be. A little vision combined with a whole lot of gathering, layering, and a wee bit of sewing.

Trust me, it was super easy.

My Christmas tree will fit inside the bay window and goes live on December 10. If you’d like to see the tree and the room, just add your name to my email list.

    So so so pretty! I love all the texture and the snowy tablecloth is incredible! I’m having a major crush on mercury glass trees right now. I just might have to go out and buy some. This dining room tablescape is gorgeous Susie!

      Thanks Nancy! The mercury glass tree is new to my collection this year. When I saw it, I didn’t even check the price….well not immediately. This one was a must-have. LOL.. Thanks so much for stopping by and your sweet words are like a breath of fresh air. XOXO

    Your table is gorgeous my friend!! I love all the trees…and that tablecloth, wowzers!!! It plays so well with your hot pink hutch!!

    • Reply theChelseaProject November 29, 2017 at 8:29 am

      Thanks Susanne! I always love your getting your thoughts on my wild ideas. You know that tablecloth was going to be a Christmas tree skirt until I made the mistake of tossing the fabric across the dining room table. And the rest…as they say…is history. XOXO

    Oh my goodness, how elegant is your tablescape! Never would have thought to use faux fur on a table top and it’s brilliant. Love your collection of trees – I am a sucker for mercury glass anything, especially during the holidays! Pinned to share.

      Thanks so much, Marie. I think I had a major Narnia moment. LOL..

    Oh my goodness, I am in love. The ‘snowy’ tablecloth is absolutely genius and you are so right – nothing beats the timelessness of the Christmas tree. And your newly remodeled hutch serves as the perfect backdrop for your beautiful decor.
    Thank you so much for joining in on this hop and have a very Happy Holidays!

    • Reply theChelseaProject December 9, 2017 at 9:10 am

      Hi Kelly and thanks so much! All of the tablescapes were unique and wonderful. I’m thrilled that you enjoyed mine as well. Looking forward to more fun in 2018. Happy Holidays to you and yours, Susie
