I am so excited about sharing my latest tablescape with you today! This one is inspired by my favorite ballet, The Nutcracker, and especially the Waltz of the Snowflakes. As a kid, I was very into ballet and being in this part of The Nutcracker was a goal of mine for years. When I finally achieved it, I was elated and have loved the music ever since. When Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart asked me to style holiday decor inspired by my favorite holiday music, I knew it was the perfect time to play The Waltz of the Snowflakes and put together an all-white tablescape for Christmas. Here are all of the details!
My All-White Tablescape for Christmas, Inspired by the Waltz of the Snowflakes
I DIY-ed a few elements of this tablescape to make it happen, so I wanted to walk you through a few of the styling tricks I used to create this all-white table. I hope they inspire you!
Layer sheer white curtains for a tablecloth
The furniture in our dining room is pretty dark, so I wanted to lighten things up to match the mood of the music. I couldn’t find a white tablecloth, so instead I layered sheer white curtains. I overlapped them to create different opacities and depth. To get this look, simply tuck the pole pocket and curtain grommets under other fabric or tabletop decor.
Tuck fairy lights into the fabric
Next, I added many, many strings of battery powered fairy lights onto the table and set them to the twinkle setting to mimic the feeling of snowfall. I didn’t want them to be fully visible though, so I layered a set of shimmery curtains over the top and let them drape down one side for a fun, asymmetrical look.
Use a mix of faux and real candles
I’m a major fan of both types of candles, faux and real. Faux wax candles are perfect for creating an amazing amount of ambiance safely. That’s why I like to scatter them along the steps and floor of our dining room. They’re perfect for these gold lanterns, as well. Gotta have that pop of metallic!
Then, I layered in real candles in the form of tall white taper candles and a single, large scented candle in the center. The scent is peppermint & cream and it’s soooo good. The perfect festive touch to any decor! Plus, who doesn’t love a massive candle?!
Illuminate the floor
It can get dark in our cabin and I wanted this table to really GLOW. So I also styled a bunch of faux candles in various holders along the floor. For even more twinkle, I let some of the fairy light strands drape down, too.
Add cozy textures (especially for the most important guest)
You know me… I always have to layer on at least one or two cozy pillows. For this all-white holiday table, I included a cable knit sweater pillow and this ridiculouslyyy soft pillow for Noodle to lounge on during our meal. Seriously, the faux fur is so soft. I want at least 3 more of these for the rest of our house!
To give the tablescape for Christmas depth, I added in a few pops of neutral tones like these jute placemats. They help to bring a bit more texture to the overall look. Plus, they are very versatile once the holidays are over. We use ours nearly every day.
Set the table
The last step is to set the table! I chose a really fun pottery-inspired dinnerware set to give the table a bit of a casual, layered feel. Metallic finishes are always a good idea, so I also added matte gold flatware. I have this set in a few different finishes, but this one is my fave!
And lastly, champagne flutes are essential to any tablescape for Christmas! There’s something about the holiday season that always gets me in the mood for bubbles — with pretty much any holiday occasion, too.
