Plaid & Lace Tablescape DIY

Whether you are hosting a celebration or visiting as a guest this holiday season, make it beautiful with flowers. Let us help you find ideas for how to create the perfect holiday interior with our DIY Tablescape recommendations. This is the second of four tablescapes we will be featuring this month, the “Plaid and Lace” tablescape.

We use different textures to create a warm and comforting environment for guests.

To create this table, you will need:

  • Red roses from florist
  • Evergreen Branches from florist
  • Willow Branches from florist
  • Cranberries
  • Various mixed nuts
  • Cylinder vases
  • Plaid fabric
  • Lace, about 1.5” thick
  • Rosemary sprigs
  • Brown textured ribbon
  • Candles
  • Double-stick hem tape
  • Scissors

Rich colors like red and brown are synonymous with winter and in this week’s tablescape we use different textures to create a warm and comforting environment for your guests this holiday season. If you are not setting your table this holiday, you can bring a host gifts that will fit with the decor.

To make the table runner, we used double-stick hem tape to attach lace trim to plaid fabric that we cut to 1.5’ wide.   We filled the vases with the cranberries and mixed nuts on different levels to add texture, height, and color.

We placed a single red rose and rosemary sprig at every table setting using the brown textured ribbon to bring the whole table together.     Cranberries from the grocery store were used to fill glass vases to bring freshness to the tablescape and for their vivid color. 

We filled the vases with the cranberries and mixed nuts on different levels to add texture, height, and color. We laid evergreen branches and willow branches along the center of the runner as a basis for the vases and candles.

While the rose is beautiful, the green of the stem and the rosemary really add charm with the ruby red chargers.     There are countless red flowers you could use for this tablescape, but only a rose has the traditional feel of this rustic inspired tablescape.

A beautiful red rose and rosemary sprig at every table setting using the brown textured ribbon is the finishing touch to bring the whole table together.

We recommend the Celebration of the Season Centerpiece as the perfect arrangement to accompany this table. Visit our selection of hand picked holiday flowers and gifts to find the perfect centerpiece for your table or a beautiful arrangement to present to the host.
