If you’re looking to add a touch of elegance and festive cheer to your Christmas table this year, a simple blue Christmas tablescape is the perfect way to do it.In this blog post, we’ll show you how to create a gorgeous blue Christmas tablescape using a few simple decorations.

French Blue Tablescape

This tablescape features a classic French blue and white color palette, with gold accents to add a touch of sparkle. This color scheme allows me to easily transition to a cozy holiday vibe while still leaving much of our daily decor in place. It’s especially easy to add blue Christmas decorations to your home if you already go for an everyday neutral vibe in your decor!


A simple white runner lays the foundation for the tablescape. A wooden vase of blue hydrangeas is the centerpiece of the tablescape. The place settings are a combination of gold and white, with white plates and crystal stemware to complete the look. The table is finished off with a few brass candlesticks to create a peaceful and festive atmosphere.

Keeping it Simple

With the philosophy in place of building on what I already had, I was able to keep this tablescape blissfully simple. I didn’t rush out and buy a bunch of new things. With subtle additions like the blue candles, I was able to make items I’ve had for years — like my brass candlesticks — feel fresh.

Table Setting

Another favorite aspect of this tablescape is that this color scheme allows our (typically stored away) wedding china to shine front and center. It’s really fun to see these dishes showcased and actually being used! And setting the table with such beloved pieces helps the holidays feel really special this year.

I hope that this non-traditional tablescape has inspired you to make the most of your celebration this year. There can still be a ton of meaning and beauty in a simple gathering (sometimes even more!). Tap the link to read more, and make sure to follow along with me on Instagram @ninahendrickhome!
