Christmas Tablescapes

It is time for more inspiration for your Christmas tablescapes!  I have teamed up with 29 other talented tablescapers!  Take a look at my casual Christmas table with my red truck with the bottle brush tree inspired tablescape and then head on over to the links at the end of this post to see all the different looks created for Christmas tablescapes!

Red Christmas Truck Tablescape

For this Christmas tablescape I decided to use my tavern table, which is our everyday table.  I have set it casually for a comfy family meal.

Red Christmas Truck TablescapeA faux greenery garland was laid in a serpentine pattern down the middle of the table for a centerpiece.  I parked one of my red metal trucks right on top of the garland and then dotted some artificial red poinsettias into the garland.

Each place setting had a little metal ornament from Target, either this little camper, a truck with a tree or a little Woody with a tree.  These would be sweet little giveaways to my guests.Red Christmas Truck TablescapeMy snowy tray sits on my sideboard with larger models of the truck, camper and Woody.  Battery operated lights are tucked under the snow and make it glow at night.

  1. Chloe, this is really cute. If there was ever doubt that I loved plaid, one just has to step into my sunroom, lol. Your table is full of fun, for kids or adults. My favorite thing is that tray on the sideboard. It looks like a campsite, lol. And what a clever thing in how you decorated the store-bought cake! Love the rattan wraps for the glasses too – any season!
    Your capacity to create, celebrate and decorate is off the charts. Thank you so much for leading the tour and inviting me along. It’s been my pleasure. Happy Holidays!

    1. Rita,

      You always have the kindest words. I am thinking of using the idea to embellish store bought cakes more often, when I do not have time to bake! Thank you again for joining in!

  2. Good morning, Chloe. In Dallas this am it is 30 degrees but sunny. I definitely want to pursue the little truck theme. Watched your FB show on the tray and that is on my list of to dos. Merry Christmas and thanks for being such an inspiration.

  3. Oh how this little red truck has captured my heart. My family did have a little red truck, so it is even more meaningful for me. This table is absolutely darling. It certainly brings out the nostalgia for me. What a fun and delicious cake. A perfect match to go with your heartwarming table. The plaid napkins and greenery add even more of the retro feel. So lovely. Thank you for organizing this wonderful Christmas Tablescape Blog Hop. And Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  4. The prettiest table I have seen so far online. Casual and clever. I love, Love, Love ❤️
    Thanks for the inspiration for a tabletop that won’t break the bank and can be bought locally. Would love to win your prize.

  5. You did it yet again Chloe, first and foremost…thank you for hosting this blog hop. It is always so much fun. I love your cake! Simple to do, yet it speaks volumes. The little red trucks are so cute and I used that theme last year and it is even more popular this year so you can be sure you will see my little red truck and cars this year too. Look for my little car on a purchased cake…thanks for the inspiration as always.
    Merry Christmas from our house to yours.

  6. One of the cutest themes I have ever seen. I am just a country girl at heart, so of course I loved everything about it. It looked so warm and homey. We do a table escape at our Church during the season, so that would be one that would look so good. It was not overdone and just the right amount. Next year since you are so good at this, you could do a train theme. You would do great at it. Thanks for sharing and hope you have a Very Merry Christmas.

  7. So cute Chloe!! And the cake made me laugh! Such a Christmas delight your table and vignettes are! I can tell you had a lot of fun with this~ Thank you so much for organizing these wonderful blog hops, have a very Merry Holiday season!

  8. Chloe, what an adorable, fun, and festive Christmas table! The little red truck makes the perfect centerpiece, and I adore those cute holiday plates. This blog hop has been so much fun! Thanks for hosting once again! Merry Christmas, sweet friend!!!

  9. Chloe, Love your Table and how you decorated. My Dad loves trucks and I’m going to have to make the hour trip to Target to check out these ornaments. Too Cute!!!!! Love the Theme and how you put it together!!!
    Thank You for sharing.

  10. This is adorable! I recognized the little camper as I was just at Target the other day and it immediately caught my eye but I didn’t see the trucks. They really had some cute decorations this year! Your table looks great!

  11. Merry Motoring Chloe! I adore your trucks and cute car plates at the table, along with the ‘plaiditude’ the napkins bring! What a festive way to top your store bought cake! Thanks so much for all your organizing efforts. It’s always a pleasure to blog hop with you. ♥

  12. You’ve taken the “Red Truck” to new heights and adventures! What a terrific tablescape using this fantastic item as your centerpiece! I like how you’ve placed it on the greenery garland and added the vibrant poinsettias. The plates with the red cars and trees were “made for” this table and look so coordinated with the truck theme. And it makes the whole room feel like part of the tablescape when you have the other areas decorated in a similar fashion – great tray on your sideboard and your bar top is equally charming. Then there’s the coordinated food – a truck & tree on that delicious looking cake – awesome idea! I really enjoyed seeing what you’ve done with the Red Truck theme on a table as I’m currently working on one too. 🙂 Thanks so much Chloe for all your efforts in hosting these friendly and inspiring Blog Hops this holiday season. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  13. Hi Chloe,

    Thank you for hosting this fun holiday table scape hop! It is such a joy to have the opportunity to connect with these talented ladies. And…I love your red truck theme! It is perfection!

  14. The red trucks are adorable, giving merriment to all ages. Everything is pitch perfect and so pretty! The cake is the crowning touch. Thank you for organizing the blog hop. I was honored to join this talented group. Wishing you a happy Christmas!

  15. Good Morning Chloe, are you exhausted yet? I know i am! But now that it is all done, I can sit back and relax the rest of the month (not!).
    Anyhow I love the bright, cheery and festive table you created this year. Those bold red trucks and poinsettias just really say ‘let’s have fun!’ Not sure if your grands will be visiting over the holidays, but they are sure to enjoy that table.
    Thanks again for all the organizing.
    Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

    Hugs, Lynn

  16. I just love the more relaxed look of your super cute red truck table. I am not a real formal person, so I feel I would really enjoy time around this table. The trucks and campers are adorable and when you threw in the plaid napkin it sent me over the edge!! Fun and warm!! Thank you so much for allowing me to take part in your wonderful hops this year. All your work is much appreciated. Maybe some day when you are in Lakewood – we could meet!!! I live quite a bit south of the lake but I have family that lives in Avon Lake! I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!!

  17. Chloe, the little trucks are the sweetest addition to your tablescape. Love the greenery down the center of the table and those plates are the cutest. Thank you sooo much for again hosting. It’s a big job and you do it with just grace. Merry, merry Christmas friend.

  18. Chloe, those are the cutest plates and they work so well with your trucks! I love the casual feel of your table…it is so warm and inviting! Thank you for hosting all the blog hops this year, I love participating!

  19. This is so festive and I love the red truck theme. There’s just something about the red trucks that remind me of watching Christmas shows with my mom. Thank you so much for organizing these blog hops for us. I’ve met and been inspired by some amazing and talented bloggers all thanks to you. Take some time to chillax and enjoy the season.

  20. YES, you have all of us with envy! The table is lovely, comfortable looking so you can really enjoy. The red trucks add such a down-home feeling, and the plaid. You did it just right and thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful, Merry Christmas, from another (South) Carolina girl who enjoys seeing what you come up with in every post.

  21. Chloe, your table is so fun, love the red truck theme. The plates are darling. Tucking the plaid napkins really mKes the table pop. I do adore the wood table. It works perfectly with your red truck theme. The cake looks fabulous all decked with with the traditional colors. Thank you for organizing another fun tablescape blog hop. Merry Christmas.

  22. Beautiful. All the trucks have inspired me to locate my daughter’s pink Tonka pick-up from her childhood. It will be in my Christmas tablescapes. Our son tried to throw all his small cars & trucks away after he graduated from college. I rescued all of them & they have been again claimed by him. He happy that I save the! Merry Christmas to all.

  23. Chloe, I keep telling myself that one of these days I’ll buy a small red truck to put by our tree’s train set. I love your theme and all those red trucks. Really, just so darn cute! I really want to thank you for hosting your Christmas Tablescape Blog Hop and allowing me to be part of it. Merry Christmas, my friend!

  24. Very cute. Now that I have grandsons, the red truck theme is especially appealing. No trucks left at our Target! Drat. I too think the casual theme is wonderful and will be looking for a red truck for next year.

  25. Absolutely beautiful – as always! I love the vintage touches, and all that red and plaid looks fantastic in your home. Happy holidays, and thank you for hosting!

  26. Casual, comfortable and all Christmas! That red truck has won my heart. Your balance of color is cozy comfortable. It does not tire the eye, just sort of guides it to the next little treat. You are truly talented. Thank you for the inspiration and new visions. As a grandmother I have seen many little red trucks but never as decor. Sometimes on the floor after I stepped on them and believe me that vision was not good. The final plus has been your use of traditional red and green, my favorites.

  27. if I did, I’d do exactly what you have done. They are so fun and such a great pop of color against the white walls. And if you get bored, you can just rip it off and start over! Visiting from Redo It Yourself Inspiration party.

  28. Hi Chloe! When researching possible table decorating for Christmas, I came across your blog. I have loved the Red Truck Theme for a while now. Great to see it’s catching on! Your decorations are beautiful, and I especially like how you bring everything together. You’re a talented person and obviously have a lovely gift. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    1. Oh Sharon, Thank you so much for your kind words. I do love decorating, particularly for the holidays. I am so glad you found Celebrate & Decorate! I hope you have a blessed holiday season!
