If you have a round farmhouse table and you’re wondering how to design a circular table for Christmas, this tablescape tutorial is for you!
This is going to be a very dramatic tablescape, so I’m going to show you how to create a lot of layered high drama.
However, if it’s too much drama for you, I’ll also show you how to easily swap out a few pieces of decor. Either way, you can make a beautiful, glamorous, holiday style tabletop that you can enjoy all season.
I’m nicknaming this my “charcuterie style” tablescape because anything goes.
To create a “wow” impact, a great tip I want to share with you is to bring it all together and collect it all into one spot.
In this blog post, you’ll learn exactly how to to do this using these steps:
Now let me break it down for you before I show you the completed round farmhouse tablescape!
The first thing we’re going to do is choose a tablecloth to form the base of the round farmhouse tablescape design.
Since we’re working with a round table, you can easily use any shape of cloth, textile, or runner.
For my table I used a square shape.
There are two placement options for this:
I chose to do the ladder of the two. I just love how loose, wrinkly, and organic it looks.
The textile I’m working with is a really loosely woven white linen with gold foil detail. It’s a classic holiday color scheme and something that’s really on trend for this year. If you are ever unsure about what colors to commit to, this is a no brainer. It’s going to be around forever!
Since we’re not going to be using this table to dine on this year I’m going to leave the cloth to be a little bit wider, meaning less space to the edge.
If you need to make room for a plate and place settings, you can just scoot your centerpiece or your tablescape closer into the center of the table.
And it’s that simple. We’ve got the first layer of our centerpiece down.
The second step in styling a round farmhouse tablescape is to start placing down the holiday decor.
White and gold is the primary color scheme that I’m going to use for all of the holiday decor on top of my tablecloth.
I’m going to start with some of my larger objects first, and I’m starting with this gorgeous hand beaded Christmas tree table topper.
For placement, I think of my circular table as a clock. I arranged some of my Christmas trees at 11:00 o’clock and then the others at 3:00 o’clock. This creates a gap that isn’t too large or small.
With my tallest holiday decor down, I then arrange different objects around my table such as golden deer and petite trays.
The combination of these sorts of pieces create a little bit of visual interest in alternating heights.
Whatever I do on one side, I repeat on the other. With that done, you’ll be able to see where you have holes in your tablescape design.
To fill in the areas that feel empty, one of my favorite things to do is to use some of my favorite excess Christmas ornaments.
In this case, you can lay them out on your tablecloth in a variety of sizes. I also like to switch it up by encasing them in bowls to make them feel more special.
This is a nice way to switch up how you use your extra ornaments so they don’t get lost in your tree.
For example, I used a cluster of large beaded heart ornaments, pinecones, crosses, and small clear glass ones. I do have some of these on my tree, but I love them so much, I wanted to place them out on my table.
I simply arrange these front and center as a part of my round farmhouse tablescape scheme.
If you feel like the overall round farmhouse tablescape has become too tall and you want to use it for a family meal or your Christmas dinner, all you have to do is swap the tallest decor for something on a medium or smaller scale.
I chose to do that with my gold beaded Christmas tree toppers. Instead of the tall ones, I used some that would allow me to see the person at the opposite side of the table if I were to eat at it.
As I mentioned at the beginning, I went very dramatic and all in on this round farmhouse Christmas tablescape!
Frankly, a lot of us didn’t get to celebrate last year and this will be our first holiday season with our loved ones. There is definitely a lot of maximalism happening in our holiday decorating this year, and I am here for it.
