I’m changing things up on you guys and sharing my Christmas tablescape first! Usually, I like to share the floral centerpiece DIY first, then build to the full tablescape the next day. But for my holiday table this year, the two posts go hand in hand! Sarah designed the centerpiece, I set the table around that, then she added the final details. I loved styling a table this year and feel like that really comes across in how festive and cozy it feels.

But we still try to make our time together special, so we’ve embraced staying in and having a date night at home. This post isn’t exactly like… earth shattering with suggestions, but I thought you guys might still appreciate knowing what we do to make the night special. I also love this entire idea because it’s budget-friendly and easy to put together at the last minute.
