Sharing my Simple & Beautiful Easy DIY Christmas Tablescape Ideas with live greenery, candles & pictures included!

It seems funny, that I had declared I would only use faux greenery in my Christmas decorating this year. 

When you see my Christmas tablescape, you will see that my dining table is set with lots and lots and LOTS of live greenery and I love it, ha! 

Well, if live greenery isn’t for you, I am sharing my Christmas table with a few of my blogging friends so there will be tons of easy Christmas tablescape ideas & inspiration! 

Thanks so much to Krista from The Happy Housie for organizing this Christmas Tablescape hop.

I finally talked Jason into trying our new church pew in the dining room to add some comfy seating to our farmhouse table.

I can’t believe how closely the wood matches both pieces.

The jury is out as to whether or not we will keep it in the dining room but it adds much needed floor space in this room which is less than 9 feet wide.

It gives such a cozy home sweet home look to our farmhouse!

So, let me explain the change of plans from faux to real greenery…

If you are like us, you buy the tallest Christmas tree possible and have to trim off a good foot and a half after you get home and have a lot of left over greenery. 🙂

So rather than let it go to waste,  I added it everywhere humanly possible!

Because the greenery is real I did go faux with my new candles so as not to worry about lighting my table on fire. 🙂

  1. Tara, Your dining room looks wonderful! The wood of your table and pew just give off a lovely vision with the greens of the season and Winter ahead too. I think the reuse of the pew brings with it a feel of goodness; especially in your dining room. You two are terrific.

    1. Beverly, thank you for your incredibly sweet comments about my Christmas tablescape! Our family is definitely enjoying our church pew in that room :).
