Winter Tablescape Decorating Ideas

Once the holiday season is over it can be difficult to decide how to go from from Christmas to winter decor in your home. I want to show you how easy it is to transform your home with these winter tablescape decorating ideas!

We live in an apartment in Boston, so the living room is the main area of our home. I decided to focus on creating a winter tablescape with our coffee table. I also removed all red items in the living room and brought in grey, blue and sage tones.

Winter Tablescape Decorating Supplies

Eucalyptus is a fantastic plant to decorate with year round. There are many varieties, so you can incorporate different textures and color tones.

Cotton Stems

Cotton Stems are another one of my favorite items to decorate with in the winter and spring. I have these from Michaels Arts & Crafts. They’re a great addition for a winter tables cape since they have a touch of gold glitter on them.

Pine Cones

Pine cones are a simple item to use when decorating in the winter. The best part is that you can get them for free in your backyard! I have a few small ones from my in-laws yard and three large pine cones that I picked up on a hike while in Lake Tahoe.


I will admit it, I have a candle addiction! I fell in love with these candle stick holders from the Christmas Tree Shops new collection, Grainhouse. They’re so versatile with their whitewash finish. Perfect for a winter tablescape!

Pitcher & Vase

The last item needed for a winter tablescape is a pitcher or vase. I picked up a great rustic navy pitcher in the Bullseye Playground at Target. My absolute favorite vase we own is from Crate & Barrel. It technically is a hurricane candle holder, but it’s to nice to burn a candle in!

Creating Your Tablescape

This is the best part, putting your creative juices to work! Have fun when creating your winter tablescape. I do not always have a vision in mind. I like to play around with my decor items and see everything come together.

As you create your winter tablescape make sure you are incorporating different heights and textures. You also want to create a balance on your table. Most of the time I prefer uneven numbers when decorating to avoid it being too matchy.

Take a moment and be proud of your winter tablescape and decorating skills!
