Sparkle and shine this Christmas, with diamond crystal candle holders, gilded candelabras, and vintage-style glassware!
With Weddingstar, you can have it all, and at an affordable price, every time. The growing trend in holiday and Christmas decor over recent years has consistently been focused on paring back the ‘more is more’ trend, and instead focusing on classic, neutral themes, with plenty of sparkle and warm lighting. Think eucalyptus and pine garlands, natural pinecones and birchbark elements, rustic golden bells hanging from jute rope, finished off with warm candlelight and strands of twinkle lights.
These looks are timeless, and as they comprise mainly of products you can use year round in your home decor, they also save you money and storage space. Now that’s a trend that’s always in. Give this theme a try, and say ‘yes’ to more free time, saved money and space, and most of all, more focusing on creating happy memories and long-lasting traditions.

Ahhh… let it snow! Read on, for this timeless tablescape tutorial!
Start your tablescape with a fresh tablecloth in a neutral colour of your choice. We used white, but you can also use ivory, beige, green, or black. Top it with a velvet or sequinned runner from Weddingstar, like the options below.

Add a pop of colour with gold or rose gold, if you like!
Weave two of Weddingstar’s new eucalyptus garlands down the centre of the table. Consider using four pieces for a longer table. Fluff generously before use. For a dreamier look, layer the eucalyptus garlands with a chiffon or tulle runner, as seen in the photo below.
A striking centrepiece, Weddingstar’s elongated taper candelabra is the perfect touch to a formal table. Before adding your chiffon or tulle layer, weave your eucalyptus garland through the candelabra for a seamless look. Top with real taper dinner candles, or Weddingstar’s gold ombre LED tapers.
Set out one of Weddingstar’s unique favour boxes at each place setting, including a few chocolates or candies inside. You can use these as place cards as well, by writing each guests name on the box (however there are more place card ideas further ahead in this tutorial!).
Place these crystal tealight holders down the length of the table, taking care to not let them get too close to branches or fabric (or guests hands, by wine glasses!). To play it safe, try LED tealights, or decorative light strands!

Decorative Battery Operated LED String Lights – Silver Wire, Decorative Incandescent Plug-In String Lights – White Garland
Add cloth napkins in the colour of your choice, paired with elegant napkin rings, like these diamond ring style holders. Napkin colour ideas? Classic white, ivory, grey, or beige. You can also consider lightly patterned napkins, or textured linen napkins.
Next, add place cards with interesting holders, such as these antler holders, birch log holders, or white geometric holders. Can’t choose? Pick the one you can picture yourself using for other holidays!
For a pop of colour, you can paint the holders in your favourite shade, or gold dip the tips for an elegant look.
Setting out handwritten place cards with each guest’s name is not only an elegant touch to any table, it is also a sneaky way to help guests avoid the commotion of trying to seat themselves when it’s time to eat. This is especially useful if you plan to set out individual holiday favours.
If you loved the look of the 5 arm tiered candelabra earlier in the tutorial, you will love this set of two candle holders. Try a set at each end of the table, or a grouping in the centre.
Contemporary Tiered Wood Spindle Taper Candle Holders – Natural – Set Of 3, Contemporary Wood & Glass Pillar Candle Holders – Natural – Set Of 2
For a touch of minimalism and influences from Scandinavian Christmas decor, check out Weddingstar’s new wooden candle holders. Available in a set of 3 taper holders or two hurricane glass pillar holders, these products will look just as good on your end tables and mantels long after the holidays come to a close.
Vintage Style Pressed Glass Wine Goblet – Clear, Vintage Style Pressed Glass Champagne Flute – Clear
No tablescape is complete without beautiful glassware. Invest in a full set of Weddingstar’s exclusive vintage pressed glassware, available in both wine goblets and champagne flutes. If you love Pinterest, you’ll probably recognize these across thousands of wedding boards! If you’d prefer a simpler style, check out their classic wine and champagne glasses. These are available in several holiday and occasional designs, and a variety of monogram patterns to suit all tastes.
Let the holiday beverages flow!

If you’d like to keep that table cloth clean a while longer, put out some paper coasters to match your table’s theme. Weddingstar has several that match this theme, including the ‘love’ wreath patterned coasters, marbled hexagon coasters, and heart-shaped coasters in natural kraft paper.
Hexagonal Paper Drink Coasters – Geo Marble Collection – Set Of 12, Heart Shaped Paper Drink Coasters – Love – Set Of 12
If you’d rather use disposable napkins for a crowd, try one of these pretty custom napkins from Weddingstar. You can create your own look, or use a pre-designed style in the colours of your choice. This is an area you can have a lot of fun with!

Last but certainly not least, every holiday table needs a signature drink! Today we are featuring Mission Hill Estate Winery‘s 2021 Rosé, a light and airy rosé with notes of watermelon and redberry. This special wine has sold out for the season, so we recommend checking out Mission Hill’s Exhilarat!on Brut Rosé, or 2021 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc Organic instead. These special wines are just as delicious!
