Hot Cocoa Christmas Tablescape

2 Mins read

Thanksgiving is over. Are you in a turkey coma? Do you still have leftovers you are trying to reinvent into different dishes? I put away all the pumpkins and copper mugs from our Thanksgiving tablescape and got to work putting together a fun Christmas tablescape.

When I started planning this tablescape, I wanted to do something different. I didn’t want the table to be set for a dinner party, but more of a quiet night home with the four of us. This Hot Cocoa Christmas tablescape is perfect for that.

I wanted to set the table to make it whimsical, vintage and a little bit farmhouse. I wanted to embrace a warm table that was conducive for hot cocoa drinking and dunking. Yep. Dunking. Hot cocoa is always better when you have a cookie to dunk in it.

This table could not have come together any easier. I used all things I had around the house so it didn’t cost anything either.

I gave the entire family reindeer names and put them in reindeer place card holders I bought on clearance last year. We also each got a corn cob pipe. I thought they were fun and a welcomed addition for a cold winter night enjoying hot cocoa together.

I put Christmas pillows on each chair and I laid a throw on the bench. That simple touch made the Christmas tablescape feel so much more cozy.

I added three small trees to the middle of the table with pine cones, bells and a twig runner I bought at a yard sale.

I added a string of lights from Target that I got on clearance at 90% after Halloween. They were 30ยข!!! If you don’t shop stores after each holiday, you need to start. I find such great deals on things I can use all year round that way.

The juxtaposition of vintage pieces, rustic touches and sparkly napkin rings and place card holders makes me happy.

This Christmas tablescape was a lot of fun to put together. Our kids’ faces lit up when they saw it and they were so happy to take a night off, unplug from everything and enjoy hot cocoa, goodies and Christmas music around this tablescape. This is what is important and this is when memories are made.

What traditions do you have around the holidays that are your fondest memories?

I found some great options online to set your own hot cocoa table:
