Oh…good us too!
Since you love to entertain like Anne & I, you’ll love our monthly virtual supper club posts.
Every month we get together with our friends Stacy, Rachel, Jen, and Michele and share our tablescapes and recipes on our blogs.
It’s so fun to see what everyone in our group comes up with each month.
There’s so much talent and creativity with this bunch of bloggers.

We’re thrilled to welcome Kelly, from the Tattered Pew this month.
Anne & I were lucky to meet Kelly in person this summer at the Haven Conference in Atlanta.
It’s wonderful to meet our virtual friends in person and Kelly is such a sweetheart.

But that’s enough about us…let’s talk more about this month’s theme… and my Christmas tablescape!
Modern Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room
Last year I moved my faux Christmas tree from my front gallery room to our dining room and put it in the middle of the windows.
I absolutely loved having a decorated tree in the dining room…it looked so elegant.
This year I decided to slide the tree in the corner of the room instead of the in front of the windows.
And I love it even more in that spot!

I always like to add some holiday décor to my chandelier that hangs over the table.
A simple faux cedar garland draped around the bottom is perfect because you can dress it up or down depending on the rest of the décor in the room.
I usually hang clear glass ornaments with ribbon from my light fixture.
This year, I decided to switch it up and hang these pretty brass jingle bells with jute to coordinate with the farmhouse style Christmas table.
On the back of each dining chair, I hung a small wreath with burlap ribbon.
I found these inexpensive wreaths at Target several years ago.
Don’t worry…they sell them in the Bullseye Playground area in Target every holiday season so you can grab a few for your chairs.
Although some of the dining room Christmas décor looks very similar to last year, the tablescape is completely different.
How to Create a Farmhouse Christmas Centerpiece
Anne and I had some fun crafting last week.
These DIY chunky yarn trees was just one of the projects we completed.
I made seven yarn trees for my Christmas table centerpiece.
Aren’t they just so cute?!
A tablescape isn’t complete without some candlelight.
Six gold candlesticks hold tall tapers to give my holiday centerpiece a pretty glow and ambience.
These gorgeous half spheres are a beautiful pop of faux greenery to each end of the table centerpiece.
I got several of these from our friend Jackie who owns Rod Works home decor store in Asheville, NC.
If you’re ever in the area you need to go say hi to Jackie, she’s so sweet and has an awesome store chock full of home décor goodies for every style.
The skinny linen table runner from South Home Design seems to be another staple item when I style my centerpieces.
For this month’s virtual supper club tablescape, I weaved a felt ball and wood bead garland in between the trees & candlesticks.
The garland along with the table runner creates additional texture and interest.
How to Style Holiday Place Settings
Anne & I finally broke down and bought gold flatware after admiring it forever on other blogger’s tables.
We purchased three boxes and since each box is a 20 piece set we both get flatware serving sets for six.
We just loved this set because it’s actually champagne and not gold so it’s not super shiny.
And it goes perfectly with both of our styles.
Each table setting begins with my seagrass woven chargers.
Then I placed an inexpensive faux wood charger.
Yup…they are fake wood!
I bet you couldn’t tell in photos they were plastic and not wood!
They look pretty good don’t they!?
After stacking the double chargers I placed my every day dinner and then salad white plates.
On top of each place setting is a simple neutral cloth napkin with fringe edges.
I thread jute twine through a brass jingle bell, added a piece of greenery that I cut from a tree in my backyard and tied it around the napkin.
At each place I set two wine glasses, one for wine and the other for water.
I really like using stemless wine glasses instead of traditional water goblets because they look so much prettier on the table.
My modern farmhouse Christmas table is ready for entertaining!
