It’s the most wonderful time of the year and one way to get into the holiday spirit is to create a festive tablescape for your winter soirée! Inspired by the holidays, SJ Soirée designed a winter holiday tablescape which we hope can bring you inspiration for your winter events such as a bridal shower, an intimate winter engagement dinner, and Christmas parties.

When we think about the winter holidays, we envision sitting by the fireplace in a cottage or cabin getting toasty and wearing our favourite plaid pajamas or shirt keeping warm from the cold. With this picture in mind, we designed a rustic yet elegant tablescape that would be fit for any winter event. The table décor centred around a beautiful red and black table runner with matching table napkins. We decided not to fully cover the wooden table as it played an important part of the rustic theme.

To give our tablescape some warmth and romantic vibes, we placed a lantern with a simple tall white candle. The lantern was adorned with flowers, pine embellishments and a festive bow making it the focal point of our table decor.

Continuing with the red theme from our plaid table runner, we decided to continue to incorporate this festive colour in other décor elements such as the candles, flowers and red berries and the table napkins.

Red is the most prominent winter holiday colour however it can be overwhelming if used in abundance. As such, we balanced the rich red décor elements with gold accent which we placed in the long wreath which ran on either side of the plaid table runner. Another creative and delicious way we incorporate gold was by placing Ferrero Rocher chocolates in crystal candy dishes. We also used gold charger plates and sparkly gold candle holders to add some sparkle to our décor!

To truly bring out the cabin fever in our tablescape, we placed stunning reindeer décor pieces made of wood with sparkly gold antlers on our table runner. We also wanted to bring nature inside and we did so by using acorns with the pine table décor in the centre of the table. A final creative rustic touch was to use wooden place card holders in the form of standing clipboards!
