Take a look at my post full of photos from my Red and Green Woodland Christmas Table. Red berries, robins and green accents make this table great.
Last Christmas I really embraced the festive woodland for our Christmas Day table. I used mixes of real greenery fresh from the garden (and flower shop) and some garlands I bought from Tiger stores to add some vibrancy.
For the main photo above I made the candles look extra extravagant by taking a wreath and laying it on the table and adding the candle to the middle. This is a great way to add something extra special without spending loads of money. I’ve pinched the wreath off the wrong door a few times for the main dinner and popped it back before anyone noticed. This works for all sorts of wreaths and here are 5 of my favourite types that would work really well.
For the place settings I used Victorian glass jars with a tealight in. I tied the outside with a little snippet of red ribbon and some faux green garland. For the name I used a beautiful slice of branch and using my finest calligraphy (I definitely need more practice) I wrote everyone’s names.
The little touches on the Red and Green Woodland Christmas Table.
In the middle of the table I placed a long slice of tree I bought from a farm shop. It is a great a centre piece all year, especially for a Red and Green Woodland Christmas Table. I placed it on to a basic red table cloth which I think was a sheet originally as I couldn’t find a large enough red table cloth. On the slice of tree I build it up with candles, cinnamon sticks, pine cones, some fake holly leaves as I’m always worried hurting myself on it’s points. I am very good at hurting myself without trying. Clumsy galore.
I love building up the green and red and natural elements. It’s a simple one to make and might not be the most fancy but it’s homely and fun.
