Here’s an easy and elegant Christmas tablescape for your holiday dinner. This is where neutral tones meet playful pops of copper for a look of understated elegance.

Last week, I shared my Christmas living room. My living and dining rooms connect, so I typically maintain the color scheme from one room to the other.

I wanted to create a warm, cozy feeling in this space. A glow of twinkle and tea lights plus the warmth of the copper and gold helps to achieve this feeling.

Table decor should either be under 12″ or over 30″ to ensure the line of eyesight isn’t blocked.

The centerpiece is simple and low so that conversation and eye contact isn’t obstructed. Plus, everything can be easily moved around to make room for food.

The Place Settings

Bronze and copper might not be the first colors that pop into your head when decorating for Christmas. In fact, you could easily use this same tablescape for Thanskgiving, minus the greenery.

I used these gorgeous bronze chargers as a backdrop for my white and gold plates. These are my go-to plates for holidays because they coordinate with everything!

I topped each plate with a striped salad plate that I found at HomeGoods. And then there’s my new favorite napkins. Can you believe these I found these cloth beauties on Amazon! I simply tied each one with some ribbon and miniature ornaments and a sprig of greenery that ties in with my Christmas fireplace mantel.

The Centerpiece

I used a small arrangement of flowers as a focal point and then scattered additional decor down the center of the table on either side.

This gold compote is beautiful and so versatile. I filled it with floral foam and then added white hydrangea. For some interest, I also put in a few branches of greenery and glitter picks that coordinate with those used in my living room.

I added a mix of votives on each side along with some leftover ornaments.

I also used a couple of my favorite white feather trees and a little bit of greenery.

Christmas Decor

I used one of my two favorite faux garlands on the chandelier again this year. I just like the festive touch it adds!

Over in the corner, I leaned my ladder with antique grain sacks to fill in the empty space.

A few bells and some ribbon were all if took to give a Christmas look to my everyday decor.

My antique Mora clock is right next to the dining room, so I added a simple faux cedar swag with a bow.

And that wraps up my Christmas tablescape in my dining room!
