Tablescapes For Christmas

Hi- and welcome to the first of four Holiday Home link parties!

Kev and I worked on a bunch of table decor ideas for earlier this year, so I thought I’d post links to those projects here today. We created a Gift Box centerpiece

A Layered Centerpiece

And a Snowflake Runner

Now it’s your turn to link to your holiday-themed table decor posts!

You probably already know the drill, but just in case, here’s how it works:

1.Scroll down til you see the little “add your link” button. Click that, and create a descriptive name for your link like, “Nature-Themed Tablescape”, or “DIY Holiday Placemats”, etc. This will make it easier for folks to browse through them.

2. Make sure to link to your specific holiday-themed table decor post- not to the main page of your blog.

Last but not least, I created a nifty little badge for our party, so feel free to post the code in the box below at the bottom of your table decor post on your blog if you’d like to invite your readers to the shindig over here…

The Lettered Cottage

We sure appreciate it, and we hope to see you at Rhoda’s merry mantel link party this Wednesday, Kate’s holiday craft link party next Monday, and Sarah’s Christmas tree linky party next Wednesday!

    Happy Holidays Layla! I’ve been so looking forward to the Holiday parties. Thanks so much for hosting!!! I love your gift box centerpiece. Super creative to cover the box in moss! I hope you’ll check out our {Home for the Holidays} I have been so inspired by your blog I really went all out this year :)

    Oh my! I love the moss covered “Presents.” I always try to put brown paper packages under my “pretty tree” but I may have to add some of those this year. Gorgeous texture- Thanks!

    I think the layered one with the hurricane is favorite, although all are pretty. Thanks for hosting!

    I am probably the only one who doesn’t know about this, but are you on HGTV? Where and When?

    I’m having SOO much fun looking through all of these tablescapes! Unfortunately, I’m in the process of redoing my dining room table so there is no tablescape for me this year. :-( But, I’m gathering tremendous ideas for next year!!

  6. says

    Beautiful, Layla!! I’ve got some of that moss ribbon & haven’t used it yet. That’s a brilliant idea, but of course, YOU are brilliant. Hope you and Kev have a wonderful Christmas season. Lots of love! Still can’t wait to hear the big news, I just know it’s a go. xoxo

  13. Tina says

    Please tell me how to do this again if I don’t have a blog site? Thanks. Love everyone’s photos:)

    • Layla says

      Hey Tina! It’s a link party so the photos just have to be uploaded on a blog or some other website so that you can link to where they’re displayed. I hope that helps! :-D

  14. says

    I just love that gift box centerpiece! You have some wonderful ideas there…can’t wait to check out more! Thanks for hosting this fabulous party!

  15. Traci Fuqua says

    I am new to the blogging world…and I must say…you are the Queen and King! I can’t believe how many bloggers have linked up with you!

    Hi Layla,
    Your blog makes me so happy. I know that anytime I want to put a smile on my face– I can go to it and find something wonderful. You and your husband have such a beautiful gift and I so appreciate your sharing with all of us. I am going to make the snowflake table runner and gift boxes this season. I’m wondering where did you get that adorable galvanized metal cake stand? I love it so much.
