Reindeer Christmas Tablescape
Reindeer and stag’s heads have inspired my Christmas tablescape this year. I am so very much looking forward to hosting Christmas dinner for the first time in our new home and better yet, my new table and chairs arrived in time for the holiday!
This lovely table is a testament that you don’t need to spend a fortune to set a beautiful table. Goods. I used square jute placemats from WalMart and then added my Better Homes and Gardens faux wood chargers. I first used these in my Thanksgiving tablescape last year, they really are my favorites.

I love this red Paige pattern stoneware from The Pioneer Woman. I had looked for red plates elsewhere, but none I found were nearly so pretty with this lovely beaded and fluted edge.
I really wish I had been able to find The Pioneer Woman Cowgirl Lace flatware locally, since I have waited until the last minute to plan my table and don’t have time to order it for Christmas. Wouldn’t this be lovely at a Christmas tablescape? I had purchased the wooden handled flatware earlier this Fall at IKEA for $29.99 for a 20-piece set. As much as I love that red flatware, this wooden handled set is much more versatile.
I topped the red stoneware with some of Better Homes and Gardens Heritage Collection salad plates. I have a few of the different patterns, but chose the ones featuring the fawn since to carry through my deer theme.When I spotted these stag’s head silhouette kitchen towels, I knew I would be using these for napkins for my Christmas tablescape. Yes, they are oversized, but how could I resist? Obviously, I couldn’t!
I wish I had some of these Doe and Stag plates to mix in, but alas, those are not ones I collected over the years. I see that there are some available on Amazon and I am pondering that idea.
The centerpiece is what made me want to theme my table around deer, this rustic wire bowl came from At Home last year. I didn’t know when or where I would use it, but I was so anxious to use it, that I arranged red and white roses in it along with some magnolia leaves and other mixed greens. I know it is oversized, but after my guests have oohed and ahhed over it, I will move it to my imaginary sideboard and fill the space with a huge platter of turkey! I know it will be a huge platter because I bought a 29 pound turkey for this dinner for 8!
My favorite thing about my table is that it will be full with family members this Christmas, all joining together to give thanks, share a meal and time together while celebrating the birth of Christ. Merry Christmas to you and yours from all of us at the Crabtrees’ home!
