When we decorated the table for Christmas this year, we got inspired by the materials we had in the house.

We made a centerpiece from the following ingredients:

  • fir branches
  • small wooden figures (from my first ever Christmas tree)
  • Christmas balls (big red ones and small golden ones)
  • straw stars
  • wooden fretwork ornaments
  • walnuts
  • peanuts
  • tangerines
  • tea lights placed in chromatic candle holders with christmas tree shaped holes.
The centerpiece is quite colourful, so we kept the background simple with a white linen tablecloth and placemats in muted red.

The 'Enchanted' Christmas Table
by: Sonia

This one is out-of-this-world! Very special and personal, almost magical. Sitting there would have felt like in a fairytale.

Use what we had

This centerpiece looks so fun!

Natural green!

These photos remind me why I prefer REAL fir/pine/spruce branches to fakes. Yes they resinate, yes they needle, but they look (and smell!) infinitely better.

So personal and sweet!

Hello Ursula & Hans, thank you very much for sharing your beautiful Christmas table decoration! What gorgeous photos, I love your eye for detail. Your centerpiece is an intriguing combination of old and new, handmade and store-bought, natural and created (and that's one sophisticated straw star!) Thank you for allowing us a peek at genuine Old-World Christmas decorating.
