a bright and budget-friendly christmas tablescape

this year's christmas day tablescape was inspired by these gorgeous milk glass vases that I found at goodwill a few weeks ago. usually, I spend the better part of a day buying and arranging flowers but this year, I decided to use only bright, red roses to contrast against the pure white of the vases. 

my parents have such a bountiful selection of evergreen trees and red berries in their yard, so my sister and I went "foraging" on christmas morning and I honestly loved it. I wish that I could forage at our house, but we don't have the landscaping like they do haha! I was really pleased with how one bouquet of $14.99 roses and a bunch of backyard clippings could create such a beautiful table.





I didn't realize how prickly pinecones can be! I definitely learned that natural pinecones aren't exactly the same as the store bought cones. I love the flatness of the evergreen clippings. in the past, I bought greenery from home depot to create a runner but it's so thick and full when I only need just a bit. going backyard clipping allowed me to get exactly the amount that I wanted, with no remnants left behind in my car either!





I hope you had a lovely holiday with friends and family and I wish you a happy new year! if you want to see more tablescapes over the years, click here

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous-I love the simplicity of it, and getting clippings from your backyard is a great idea! We have holly bushes right in our front yard, I wish that I had thought to use those for our Christmas table!
