As an event stylist and crafty blogger, Mariah Leeson knows a thing or two about setting a stylish table. She created this gorgeous winter tablescape for an intimate dinner party using the Winter Wonderland party package from Bird's Party. A white and silver color palette combined with bursts of red sets the mood for a bright and cheery gathering.


Rustic & white

Design enthusiast Liz Marie transitioned her living room from fall to winter by incorporating a few natural elements with clean white accessories. She picked up the tree stump from a hardware store where it was labeled as a fire log (an easy way to get a rustic piece of wood without tramping through the woods). Paired with a DIY pom-pom chandelier, the look is eclectic and super chic (and easy on the wallet, too!).


Mad for plaid

A red, black and green plaid blanket was the inspiration point for this charming outdoor winter tablescape by holiday decorating specialist and blogger Michelle Edwards. Red clusters of berry sprays add a burst of color contrasted with clean white pillar candles and natural accents. White stoneware plates, red flatware, everyday drinking glasses and black napkins keep the table casual.


Woodsy chic

Portland blogger Kristen Nieman created this elegantly chic winter tablescape on a bargain budget of only $27! Brass candleholders that were family hand-me-downs paired with a sculptural branch her husband found on a walk take center stage as the table centerpiece. Gold chargers and napkin rings tie the table together and beautifully contrast with the rustic wood table.

A stylish centerpiece doesn't need to be fussy or complicated to look great. If the rest of the room is decked out for the holidays, consider keeping the table simple with just a few decorative touches. Clusters of flowers and white pillar candles are spread throughout this lovely winter table. Faux snow adds to the winter charm.

Looking to get a head start on holiday decorating? Choose a centerpiece that incorporates a few more holiday touches. This Christmas tree centerpiece by interior decorator Stacy Curran is an eclectic collection of glitzy trees and candles and would look great throughout the holiday entertaining season. Mini trees set at each place setting continue the theme throughout the table.


Decor on a dime

You don't need to be a master decorator to put together a fabulous table. With the help of her husband, this food blogger arranged this frugal winter centerpiece using tree limb scraps, a pinecone garland from the dollar store and white tapered candles. Her husband cut the limb into pieces ranging from one to five inches and drilled holes big enough to fit the candles. It's a super-chic look for less.


Metallic spread

Brass candlesticks used to be super easy to scoop up from thrift stores, but they are becoming increasingly hard to find since they've been trending the last few years. To get a consistent metallic look for less, consider spray-painting candlesticks in a variety of metal finishes like Thrifty Decor Chick did for this metallic centerpiece. Greenery and ornaments give the tablescape a holiday flair.
