Looking for Christimas table decor ideas? Here are some simple rustic farmhouse Christmas table decorations ideas for your next holiday gathering.

This year’s holiday decorating style is neutral, rustic farmhouse. And I just finished decorating my home for the holidays so I’m turning my attention to entertaining guests for Christmas.

For Christmas Eve, I’m hosting a clam bake for our large family.

Isn’t that so fun?

The clam bake is made on the stovetop and it couldn’t be easier to do.

I’ve got a few Christmas table decor ideas, but I decided to tweak what I did for Thanksgiving to keep it simple.

Because I really love that vintage toolbox, I wanted to use it again for the holidays.

So I swapped a few things out and tucked in some Christmas related decor.

I can’t wait to show you how it all looks!

The dining room is one of the first rooms you see when you walk into my home.

It is one of my favorite rooms to decorate because we spend a lot of time with friends and family. When we host family and friends for dinner parties, I love to make it extra special for them.

For this year’s Christmas centerpiece idea, I used a vintage toolbox and stuffed it with faux greens, mini trees , Christmas present ornaments, pinecones and fairy lights.

So it’s basically the same centerpiece I used on Thanksgiving, except I swapped out the gold pumpkins for the Christmas present ornaments.

Isn’t it so cool how a simple switch can completely change the look?

I think it took about 2 minute to change it up.

I considered tucking some faux poinsettias in but decided to go with the gift ornaments instead.

And how pretty is the warm glow of the fairy lights on my dining room table?

I smile every time I walk by this room because I just love how cozy it feels.

Fairy lights make a huge difference cozying up living space in fall and winter. I highly recommend getting them because they are really versatile and can be used anywhere.

Casual Christmas Table Setting Ideas

For each Christmas table setting, I layered a cedar branch placemat, rattan chargers and two melamine decorative dinner plates. I found those dinner plates on clearance at my local nursery who sells the prettiest garden-inspired home decor.

If you are interested in finding decorative plates, there are so many to choose from and they can cost close to nothing if you go to a thrift store or get them on clearance after the holidays.

Because I love the wood of my farmhouse table, I prefer to leave it exposed. So I prefer to use table runners to soften the wood rather than table cloths. I layered a  jute table runner over this flannel table runner that I made several years ago.

I’m really happy with how it turned out and know my family will love it too.

This Christmas table decor idea is perfect for a cozy, casual Christmas dinner.
