I’ll be honest. Sometimes I really just want to buy all the things when I find something I love.

Such was the case as I wandered through a store a while ago. I strolled past displays of sparkly gold and fluffy white Christmas decor. I glanced at a colorful and whimsical vinyettes of aqua blue and red with old fashioned fonts and signs that made me smile.

And then I found MY aisle. Full of  woven table runners, little white dishes with red pick-up trucks, black plaid napkins, and napkin rings made with jute and rusty jingle bells, it felt like home…

I gasped and started collecting things for my cart. In went 5 napkin rings, 5 little plates, the napkins, and the runner. Visions of the the cutest table ever were dancing through my head.

And then, I started adding the total $ up. Glory be!! Back on the shelves it went.

However, I certainly didn’t forget all that cute stuff that made my heart race…

Instead, I came home and tried to create a similar look with things I already had.

Like I’ve learned before, the lovely limitation of finances seems to highten creativity. It becomes a challenge I love, and in the process, it’s a delight to discover I don’t need more things (that require more storage space) to get our home ready for the holidays!

Start with a neutral base

The table linens are a neutral farmhouse look that I absolutely love! It is a mix of a simple linen tablecloth, a woven gray checked runner, and farmhouse striped placemats. (For a list of farmhouse table decor items inspired by Joanna Gaines, click here.)

The round wicker chargers under the plates add a nice texture and layer to the whole look.

Use white dishes

Although I sometimes like to build my table settings around my Mom’s china dishes, I find the farmhouse look works best with simple white dishes. These were my Christmas gift from my husband a few years ago, and I love them.

Layer napkins and plates

One thing I’ve learned from studying other tablescapes is that a pretty looking table often has lots of layers. Tuck in napkins and bring out the salad plates ( and even little bowls for another layer), and as you add them together, they create a nice, full look.

For this simple center piece, I staggered candle holders (of different heights), faux greenery, pine cones, and the burlap gifts I made a few weeks ago.

Add a fun place card holder as the finishing touch

This wooden gift placecard holder was a super simple craft project ~ that used up left over 2 x 4s from the garage. When they aren’t sitting on the table as place card holders, they perch on my farmhouse shelves in the Dining Room.
