Outdoor Christmas Tablescape

I’m excited to share our Outdoor Christmas Tablescape with you today as part of the Christmas Festival Blog Tour hosted by the sweet and creative, Kendra, from Joy in Our Home.

This blog tour features 30 bloggers covering everything from mantels to vignettes to recipes to front porches and tablescapes too.

If you’re coming over from our friends at 2 Bees in a Pod, welcome, we’re excited to have you!

Can you believe Christmas is in a few weeks? I swear, the weeks after Thanksgiving go by so fast!

It can almost feel like a blur if we don’t take extra care and grab a hold of some Christmas magic, you know?

Our back patio looks out at two of the three acres on our property.

We’ve left it undeveloped for the most part. It’s not uncommon for multiple species of land, marsh and scrub birds, marsh bunnies, and native turtles to visit our property on a daily basis.

It really makes for such a peaceful setting.

Thankfully the weather on this tiny island is usually cooperative save for the summer rains and hurricane season.

Creating an Outdoor Christmas Tablescape…

We like to use mix and match china out here and to keep things as easy as possible. I’ve used this snowy tree place setting for years and

I borrowed these pinecone plates from my mom. She always has the best stuff!

These sturdy glasses were a gift and we’ve used them for every season.

Creating Family Friendly Zones…

On one side of our big table is a workbench we use as a buffet.

It’s been the biggest gift because we use it for all of our outdoor meals, at parties, and even when we’re hosting an impromptu bonfire.

I picked up the wreath at Joann’s.

We’ve had the large dough bowl forever it seems like! It’s another piece we use all the time and all over the house.

During the winter we fill it with greenery, pinecone, or presents.

In the spring, it’s usually some kind of flower.

But come summer it’s filled with shells from all of our trips to the beach.

I found these cute little trees at Michaels and I kind of want to keep them up all winter ?

We’re totally crazy for anything plaid. So, we’re always on the lookout for vintage blankets during the year.

On the other side of the table is an outdoor drink station, firepit, swing, and seating area.

They’re all *hopefully* getting makeovers next spring which we’re really excited about.

Right now, though, we’re just enjoying every drop of Christmas we can!

We hope you’ve enjoyed our outdoor Christmas tablescape and patio tour. Be sure to check out all the holiday inspiration these creative ladies are sharing.
