Holiday Tablescape with Kraft Paper Table Cloth

I love having our home decorated for Christmas. It is so cheerful, cozy, and puts me in a festive mood! However, knowing that these Christmas pieces are only out for a short time, sometimes makes it hard to justify spending a fortune on new decor. We are also limited on storage space in our apartment, so I decided to dream up a holiday table setting using pieces we already had, and inexpensive disposable items. 


I love how festive it turned out, and clean up will be easy! I started with a Kraft paper table cloth. Kraft paper is so versatile, you can adapt it to your style, color palette, and occasion. I used plenty painter's tape and glue dots to secure the paper down and protect the table. 

 


Next, I used a white paint pen to create Christmas doodle table runner. This is the fun part! You can do anything you want. It suits the style to be a collage of anything Christmasy that comes to mind. This would be a great activity to involve the kids! You can even have crayons out before supper and let the little guests decorate the table. :)




My friend and I wove placemats from scrapbook paper, another activity little ones can help with. I love the quilted look with all the sweet holiday patterns! Walmart is now carrying paper straws in the party section, and I picked up this little pointsettia at the grocery store for under $5!


Add simple name plates, and scatter some Christmas candy, and you have a child friendly, no fuss, welcoming Christmas table ready to party! You can find the tutorial for our marbled pine cone place card holders here, cranberry appetizer recipes here, and holiday punch here.















We are heading to visit my family for Christmas, so we'll save this look for our New Year's festivities! Are you hosting Christmas this year or travelling?

  1. Hi, I love your idea of using this paper to cover the table and am thinking about using it to cover tables for a rehearsal dinner. I am wondering, though, how it looks if/when it gets wet from the drinks. Were you happy with the way your table looked from beginning to end? Cindy

  4. I have to show my appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this particular circumstance. Just after exploring throughout the world-wide-web and finding solutions that were not beneficial, I figured my life was over. Living without the approaches to the difficulties you’ve fixed through your good short post is a crucial case, and those that would have badly affected my entire career if I had not come across your site. Your personal knowledge and kindness in touching the whole thing was useful. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a thing like this. I can also now relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for the impressive and amazing help. I won’t be reluctant to suggest your web page to any person who desires guidance on this matter. bluntsupplies
