Welcome to the third and final installment of my Christmas Home Tour (see part 1 and part 2 here)!

This time around I’m sharing my Christmas Table Decorations with you. One thing I always struggle with is table settings. I don’t own a lot of different cutlery and have only one “good” dinnerware set. I mean, how often do I decorate my dining table anyway? Not very often! But for Christmas it’s nice to up the ante a little.

Christmas table decorations don't have to break the budget - a little holly, some greenery and some mercury glass is all you need!

I kept the cost of these Christmas decorations way down by using items I already owned and simply adding fresh holly and greenery to the table as the centerpiece along with some pretty candle holders.

Christmas table decorations: Christmas crackers are a must have!

Have you seen Christmas Crackers in stores the past few years and wondered what the deal is with them? Well, they are a British and Irish Christmas tradition ’round the dinner table.

Switching up your regular flatware for these gold ones is a great way to up the ante on your Christmas table decorations!

They are usually filled with silly junk gifts and a paper hat but they are still one of my favorite Christmas Dinner traditions! I’m so glad that HomeGoods stocks them every year!

Be creative with your Christmas table decorations. Instead of expensive napkin holders and fancy name tags, use gift tags!

There’s nothing too fancy going on with my place settings. I’m using my favorite Emma plates with napkins folded right on top. For name cards, I’ve used these cute red gift tags with little wooden snowflakes tied on. Cute and festive and free since they were left over from last Christmas!

The red and silver mercury glass candle holders were also Target dollar spot finds from a couple of months ago. Unlike the bottle brush trees and the little village, I haven’t seen these since.

Holly is the perfect festive touch for Christmas table decorations

Mercury glass always has a place in my Christmas table decorations!

I love these simple and festive Christmas table decorations!

You wouldn’t believe how many times I pricked my fingers trying to arrange that holly on the table. The struggle is real, people.

Pretty Christmas table decorations and a chalkboard. Perfect simple Christmas decor

Oh, and I finally got around to changing my chalkboard. It has said Happy Fall since forever….and I wanted something a little more festive.

It’s just done with regular chalk that I stole borrowed from my son. I find if I snap it into pieces the sharp edges work pretty well to get a relatively clean line. I won’t be winning any awards but it’s cute. You can learn more about how I do my chalkboard lettering here.

I’ve set up my some items from the Target dollar spot on the sideboard directly below the chalkboard. I love these little houses and wish I’d bought more – they’re so cute!

From this angle, you can see the wreaths that are hanging outside. I love that they add a little bit of color inside, too!

Excuse the too-long table cloth. I meant to crop it out of the photo…and then forgot. We have to add the leaves to the table for Christmas dinner so I needed a 120 inch table cloth!

We haven’t done much decorating in our dining room yet. You might notice that the walls are pretty bare. I don’t have a vision for in here yet…and I think that’s because I need to first switch up the wall color. But, it’ll do for now!

I love these rattan chairs! I want them for my dining room!

The rattan chairs were a combined birthday/Christmas present several years ago and they’ve held up great. They work with every style of decor and add a lovely warmth to the space.
