This Christmas tablescape with pops of colour was so fun to put together. See how I used pink, blue and gold decor to create a cheery and festive look for the holidays.
Hello all! I’ve been busy decorating for the holiday season, and today I’m sharing a fun and festive Christmas tablescape I put together using an unexpected colour for me, PINK!
Once again, I’m joining Krista (our host), as well as some amazing friends as part of the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas Series. We’ve been sharing all kinds of Christmas ideas, including DIY projects and handmade gift ideas. If you’re coming over from Sincerely, Marie Designs, welcome! I’m certain you’ll be inspired to tackle some holiday decorating projects once you’ve taken the full tour.
I’m not quite sure what came over me when I stared decorating. Usually, my Christmas decor is quite neutral. But, for some reason, I was craving a little more colour this year. (You’ll see even more when I share my Christmas Home Tour later this week!)

Start with some basics
Of course, I started my table setting with a neutral foundation. You simply can’t go wrong with a linen table runner (made using this technique) layered with greenery and white candles. I also pulled out the wicker chargers from my fall table setting. White dishes are a classic you can use over and over again, and I love the elegant look gold-trimmed flatware brings to a table over the holidays.
Add some colour
My pink and blue colour combination was somewhat inspired by this art from Minted that I ordered quite recently. That, and a bright pink rug I picked out for our adjoining kitchen (more on that to come).
I also spotted the blue and white vases at the thrift shop and HAD to have them! All three were under $10.
Along with the fuchsia kalanchoe and succulents, they seem to wake up the corner of our dining room that can often feel dark. The days are just too short now, aren’t they? Anything bright and cheery seems to help!
Of course, the thrift shop finds didn’t stop there. I also picked up the hand-painted tapered candle holders, and my son helped me find the cut crystal goblets when he was home during his fall break from university. (It’s one of my best tips for changing up decor without spending too much.)
They look so pretty next to the candlelight, don’t they? The pink drink is none other than sparkling pink grapefruit topped with pomegranate seeds. Prosecco or champagne would be even better! I’m sure I’ll be enjoying a glass or two over the holidays ;)
Dig in your cupboards
You may recognize the blue floral cups and saucers from this tea party and the greenery from last year’s Christmas Tour. I always try to use what I have on hand in a new way. For this table setting, I bought very little.
Have I mentioned how much I enjoy decorating for the different holidays and seasons? Table settings are the most fun for me!
They go hand in hand with entertaining, which is something I tend to enjoy. You, as well? I look forward to taking some time to reconnect with loved ones over the Christmas break. It’s a magical time of year!
Throw in some fun
I created these table favours out of pink candy canes and tiny glass ornaments. Cheap and cheerful! I love the pop of colour they add along with the block printed napkins from Serena & Lily. Somewhat unexpected for a Christmas table top, but I love the punch they add.
Are you hosting any holiday dinner parties or Christmas festivities this year? Will you be decorating with colour or playing it safe with neutrals?
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with either. I say, just have fun with it :)
