Neutral Farmhouse Christmas Tablescape with Easy DIY Décor

Neutral Farmhouse Christmas Tablescape with Easy DIY Décor

This year, Christmas may look a more scaled-down and different, but that doesn't mean we can't set up a pretty, cozy table to celebrate and give thanks for all the blessings we have in our lives! Am I right?! 🙏 So, I have opted for quite a relaxed, fuss-free style this year, with lots of natural wood touches to create a modern, neutral farmhouse Christmas tablescape . Hope you enjoy the ideas! 😍

Neutral Farmhouse DIY Christmas Décor

This year, Christmas at ours will be a little more chilled out and relaxed, so my décor will also be a reflection of that. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year, and after a tough year, I don't want to stress over elaborate décor. So I took my inspiration from nature to start the decorating process, with the styling of my mantel in a neutral farmhouse style . The DIY projects for this décor style are also inexpensive and super easy. Again, reflecting the peaceful and natural atmosphere I want to create at home.

My Pink Sugar Plum Christmas Tablescape + FREE Printables

I love pink and have already styled a pink and copper Christmas tablescape a few years ago ( you can see it here ). But since the pink, plum and gold color combination seems to be very trendy this year, I could not resist! So this year I opted for a palette of blush pink mixed in with burgundy or plum tones and a sprinkling of gold. Because it ain't Christmas without a little bit of bling, am I right?! 💁‍♀️ Naturally, I called it my "Sugar Plum" Christmas tablescape! Check out all the easy styling ideas and 4 DIY decorations below in my how-to video!
