A beautiful Christmas table doesn’t have to cost a lot. My Simple Christmas Tablescape is budget friendly and easy to put together.
I was recently given the opportunity to go on a mini shopping spree in my local CorningWare/Corelle store to find the perfect items to create a beautiful holiday tablescape as part of the Great Tablescape Challenge that they are hosting.
Even though I own and have personally bought many Corelle, Pyrex, CorningWare, and Snapware over the years, I had actually never been in one of their stores. It was a kitchen lovers paradise! I don’t know why I’ve never been, but I can’t wait to go back. There were dozens of plate designs, every size casserole dish, great knives, and so much more.
I decided to go with traditional Christmas colors. Once I found these beautiful plates, I thought it would be fun to mix and match the colors to create a really beautiful place setting. And look at these huge bowls…I can’t wait to serve a big salad or bowl of soup in those. They are just screaming to be used with something warm and toasty this winter.
I picked up some new knives from Chicago Cutlery and some new table linens because mine were really old and everything matched beautifully. Along with a couple replacement pieces to a serving bowl I got for my wedding shower 17 years ago.
The centerpiece on my table is my own that I picked up a couple years ago from a craft/hobby store and I think it’s perfect with this table. It’s low enough that you can see the person on the other side of the table (yep…that’s one of my pet peeves…lol).
I hope you are inspired to create your own simple Christmas tablescape this year. It will get you in the Christmas spirit and impress your family and guests. Don’t forget to stop by your local CorningWare/Corelle store to recreate this look at your home this year. Even better…enter win your own mini-shopping spree to a store near you.

I love the color and that it isn’t too complex or fussy. It is very warm, inviting, and comfortable. With the spree I would replace our plates. The ones we use are cheap mismatched plates I got when I first moved out almost 20 years ago. We recently redid ouour kitchen, and this would be a perfect finishing touch.
Hi Wendy, your table looks beautiful! We have a Corningware store right near our house and I go all the time just to look at everything. I would love to win this shopping spree!
