Tablescapes, Sparkling Holiday



Welcome to Celebrate and Decorate’s annual Christmas Tablescape Hop!

You will see many different styles, decor, and ideas from some very talented tablescapers!





Are you super organized and have your home decorated to perfection, with shopping done, gifts wrapped and cards in the mail?




Not me, the days are flying by and I feel like a snail!





But in the dining room as you will see





There is a lot of holiday sparkle and a fruit filled Christmas tree





Angel wings are at each place





With pears and raspberries for a holiday taste





Glitter and sparkle and tiny white lights





Simply perfect for cozy holiday nights!





Fine china and silver, crystal stemware and angel wings





The glittery fruit, it all makes my heart sing!





The chandy sports a golden garland with cranberry balls




Isn’t it fun to “Deck the Halls”!


On Dasher and Prancer and Rudolf, you too,

We’ve got to get going there’s more left to do!



A big thank you to Chloe!

Please enjoy all these beautiful holiday tables!

    Jenna, I love your sparkling fruit-laden table! So many festive details from your garland adorned chandy, twinkling lights and angel wings. I love seeing the reflection of the lights in your china cabinet and your choir of angels twinkling in the background. I’m feeling scattered and behind this year. I’m blaming it on our tree that was late going up and then our snow and sleet last weekend through Monday kept me inside for a few days when I needed to be out and about. I would never be able to pull off decorating the North and South Pole too 🙂 As always it’s a pleasure joining you at the table and for a blog hop. ♥

    • Thank you Mary, you definitely had some hurdles! My problem is I literally added an extra week before Christmas in my mind!! Rainy yucky weekend, perfect for getting things done at home 🙂

    Jenna, that fruit display is fantastic! I should’ve known you made the tree, but didn’t realize it until your source list. It’s really beautiful, and I have dining room envy seeing how pretty that looks down the table (it would go well in mine, lol). The burlap angels and place setting wings are a sweet touch, and bringing out the fine china, crystal and silver is like visiting old friends and memories.
    I am organized to a fault which, unfortunately, causes stress when even the smallest things go off track. It’s just my nature, and I wish I could slow it down and be a snail, really I do. My speeds seem to be high or off (as in sleeping). Taking the season slow has the definite advantage of soaking in its beauty and blessings. I wish that and more for you.

    • Thank you Rita! I strive to be super organized but never seem to get there 🙂 I’m making progress though! I can’t remember exactly when I made that tree, at least 8 years ago or more, and it’s one of my favorite decorations and will stay out somewhere through January. What a great hop this has been, so many different tables and styles!

  3. Jenna, oh how I love your sparkling tablescape with all its gorgeous details. I was admiring your fruit tree from my first glimpse and should have known that you made it. I need one of those! The angel wings at each place setting is truly beautiful with the burlap angels. Your lovely china, crystal, and silver make for a very elegant table. Taking things at a snails pace isn’t a bad thing! I would love to sit at this stunning table. I always enjoy hopping with you❤️

    • Thank you Pam, I made the tree a while ago when I was in my “glittering fruit phase” 🙂 I still love it and haven’t gotten all this stuff out in a long time, but I really love it…a little elegant for my grands so I will be changing it up before they are dining here on Christmas Eve!

  4. Jenna, I love your clever rhyming and beautiful tablescape. The sparkle everywhere is inviting and charming. Your plate stack and place setting are so elegant. Your fruit tree is gorgeous and how you arranged the runner is stunning.
    I love your china and crystal and that charger with the great rim is very pretty. The angel wings are so pretty sitting on the napkin. The napkin is the perfect color and texture to complete your look.
    Wishing you a very merry Christmas.🎄

  5. Your table is so pretty Jenna. And I especially love the wonderful fruit tree in the center. That’s especially lovely. (It is one of those holiday things that could come out early and stay out late!)

  6. Jenna this is beautiful. I love the fruit theme and that fruit tree you created is amazing. You are so talented!! Those angel wings are lovely. I’m mostly done with my holiday check list but wrapping is next and though I like the end result I always feel anxious until I’m done with it! Work at the pace you are comfortable with so you can enjoy the season. Wishing you and your family a lovely Christmas!

    • Thank you Liz, it’s not the holidays without a little stress and chaos! I did some last minute online shopping yesterday and got packages mailed so I’m feeling almost caught up! Have a lovely holiday!

  7. Jodi says:

    Beautiful!! It’s a day for SPARKLES and SPRINKLES 🙂 <3

    Jenna, your sparkling holiday table is just gorgeous! The fruit tree makes such a stunning centerpiece! Your pretty china, crystal, and sweet angel wings create the most lovely place settings. Any guest would love to dine at this beautiful table!

    • Thank you Shannon, the china is my wedding china and I still love it to this day. My mother nudged me in it’s direction when I was registering before I got married, she said choose something simple and you will enjoy it for a long long time, and she was so right!

  9. Kari says:

    Jenna, Jenna, Jenna…let me count the ways, or better yet, I will answer your questions at the beginning of your post.
    Are you super organized (NO) and have your home decorated to perfection, (NO) with shopping done, (NO) gifts wrapped (NO) and cards in the mail? (NO)
    Now, you know I am going to use the excuse of a broken foot as to why I am being a snail…which by the way, the final boot comes off this week! Yay! (Now if I can get my big fat foot stuffed in a regular shoe, that is the question. But I digress.
    Your table is beautiful and for all the reasons the other blog hoppers have stated. I love fruit trees and yours is spectacular along with those precious angel wings. As I have said before, your talent never ceases to amaze me, my friend.
    Now I must get busy as I have a table to “finish up” for my blog hop showing tomorrow.

    • Thank you Kari and I’m so glad I have a friend who is in the same chaos as I am! Chaos is part of the fun, right?? Great news about your boot, and yes you do have a great excuse this year! Thank you for all the kind words!

  10. Rosie M. says:

    Such a lovely post: beautiful table and clever poetry. A perfect respite during this hectic time. May the Holidays surround you with the peace and comfort that being with family brings, Jenna.

  11. Cyndi Raines says:

    I’ll join in with the chorus of voices above, agreeing that your fruit laden table with your special fruit tree is so elegant! The china sitting on the gold chargers and the rippled placemats are stunning! I too, am behind and feeling rather sluggish, not my norm at all. I only have out about one third of my holiday decor and I guess that’s all I’m going to do this year, just not that motivated. My mom would say, “less is best”, so I am comforting myself with that, ha! There will be other years to go full tilt with the decorating! Lol Let’s enjoy the simple things together! 🎄😄

    • I agree with your mom, less is best! I haven’t gotten everything out for a long time, I have changed my style over the years, and it really is time to purge and donate, I have too much stuff! I have had the fruit for a long time and haven’t used it lately and forgot how much I love it! So it’s a definite keeper! Thanks Cyndi!

  12. Beautiful!!

    If ever one is going to be surrounded by sparkle, this is the season for it! I am so not ready for Christmas at least not in terms of gifts. None of us really need anything which makes it hard to come up with the perfect gift. I hope your days are passing with happy memories.

  14. This is WONDERFUL! So different from what I usually see. I love all of the fruit and glittery ambiance. You have really put me in a holiday mood!

  15. One can’t help but be captivated by your stunning center display and the cute little angel wings. Your posts are always a delight to read and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  16. I love the rich colors and elegance of your table, just beautiful!

  17. Ann Krucek says:

    Your glittered fruit table is just twinkling with delight – sooo pretty!!! I love the tree you made and the beautiful angel wings at each placesetting. I have a hard enough time writing a post let alone having it all rhyme!! I am in about the same spot you are – cards are not mailed, gifts are not wrapped – heck – I don’t even have my shopping done. We tore apart the kitchen side of our fireplace – so the mantels are not decorated let along the stockings not hung! I hope we are both able to pull it all together without any stress!! In the mean time I think your little angels will be watching over you to make sure all goes well. Have a very Merry Christmas!!

    • Aw, thank you Ann! Not only am I behind, we are under construction too! After getting a very high bid on an outdoor fireplace, my son, who is a builder, said, I’m going to do it myself! So there’s the added stress of hoping it’s finished or at least presentable when all the family comes for Christmas Eve lunch! Oh well, the holidays are supposed to be stressful right??? Stay Merry!

    All set for a grand Christmas party!

  19. Catherine says:

    Your table is beautiful Jenna! I love the angle wing napkin rings. Fabulous! Have a Merry Christmas!


  20. Linda says:

    Wow Jenna, your fruit display is gorgeous. The little angel wings are adorable. My cards are not mailed yet, so don’t feel bad. Let’s get back to your beautiful table. Love the gold chargers with your china. You have certainly set a pretty table for all to see. Merry christmas. xo

  21. Debbee says:

    Jenna, your centerpiece is a WOW! I love, love the fruit theme and that fabulous Christmas tree you made. It’s spectacular! And, the Angels and wings on the napkin rings are so heart-warming.

  22. Carol says:

    Jenna, I love the sparkle that the sugared fruit brings to your pretty table. The angel napkin rings are such a sweet addition to the place settings. Enjoy being on the blog hops with you. Merry Christmas.

  23. Very very nice!

    Che tavola strana e inusuale . . . interessante! Mi piacciono i tuoi angeli di juta! Proverò a farli! Magari non per Natale, non ho più tempo! 😉

    Arrivo al tuo blog grazie al blog di Donna Bianca!

    Ciao, Fior

    I love your fruit themed tablescape! All the sparkle is just gorgeous and perfect for the season. I love the angel wing napkin holders – I’ve never seen anything like that before and they are just too precious! So happy to be hopping with you!

  25. Rebecca says:

    Jenna, your mom was so right about your wedding china…it’s classic, elegant and will never go out of style. I love the sparkle in the glittered fruits and tiny white lights. And the decorated chandelier is a festive touch. I always feel like I’m flying on the seat of my pants when it comes to being organized. I still have a lot to do, but in the end everything seems to come together. So don’t stress! It was a pleasure hopping with you. Have a wonderful Christmas!

  26. Donna Bianca says:

    Gorgeous! Jenna, your tablescape remember me the Rinascimento’s era and it’s paintings. Love it!
