Repurposed Holiday Tablescape Ideas

Setting a holiday table should be fun. Pull out what you have an play with it. Use a color as a common theme through your tablescapes (as talked about here at HomeGoods). Or simply mix and match things you find at home.  A repurposed holiday tablescape has no rules. Use what you have in different ways, from lights, to vases to placemats!

No need to take this seriously – play a little!


You can never have too much ambient light – it sets the mood with the flip of a switch!

Big or small, alone or in a group, vases can make interesting statements. Mix textures, colors, finishes.  Or simply place a row of matching vases on a sparkly mat for instant gratification.

Placemats and Runners

Placemats can make a great table runner, or add a layer of texture to an existing table runner.

There are no rules, well…except one. Leave room for the food.

Set your table a few days before a big holiday meal so you have a little time to play with your tablescape. It’s surprisingly inspiring, and fun!

And as my Mom always told me, “If you can’t cook well, present well.”

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where
    to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks
