Holly leaves and berries are absolutely perfectly suited for Christmas decor. This simple Christmas table setting with holly is easy and inexpensive to put together.
I can’t believe how fast Christmas is closing in on us. It always seems like Christmas is so far away, and then suddenly, out of nowhere, it’s right on top of us!
I imagine that, at this point, Christmas is in full swing for most of you, although, it may look different for many this year. It will certainly look different for my own family, but different is not necessarily bad.
I have been talking recently about a call for more simplicity in my own life lately, and with that thought, I wanted to try to create an easy and simple Christmas table for the season.
Whether you will be getting together with many this holiday, or keeping it small with just a few, this table setting is perfect (and inexpensive) for any size gathering.
We have three holly trees in our backyard that produce the prettiest berries in the winter. It’s so nice to have some bright color in the yard during the colder months when not much else is blooming. So, I decided to bring some of the cheery branches inside and use them as table decor.
*IMPORTANT NOTE* – Holly is poisonous to cats and dogs. If you have pets, make sure that any holly that you bring in the house is inaccessible to them. Either that, or only use during a gathering or meal when it can be supervised.

Simple Christmas Table Setting with Holly
Everything on the table is stuff that I already had on hand, so this table setting cost me exactly $0.
For the centerpiece, I took a simple glass vase and stuck a few branches down in it. I trimmed a few times and rearranged a bit, until I was satisfied with how it looked, but in all, it only took me a few minutes to put together.
The Rae Dunn plates I purchased a few years ago. I love these plates because they are simple, festive, and casual. I am not a super fancy pull-out-the-expensive-china-and-go-all-out for special occasions type of person. BUT, that doesn’t mean that I can’t still have a lovely holiday table.
The napkins were also purchased a few years ago, and a little sprig of holly at each place adds a nice little touch, while also tying the entire table together.
I really love the way this turned out. It is the perfect blend of classic Christmas, simple style, and easy DIY.
