The tree is trimmed and now we’re ready to entertain guests for the holidays. I love creating a variety of fun festive looks for both my dining room and kitchen table. A fancy colorful place setting lifts the mood everyday and on special occasions! I love to go for easy, casual and fun Christmas tablescapes in the kitchen since this is where we hang out EVERYDAY and it’s the table the kids will eat at during the main sit down holiday meal too. Take a peek at some of our ideas to create the most simple and easy casual Christmas Tablescape on a Budget below.
Easy and Casual Christmas Tablescape Ideas on a Budget
Walmart asked me to use some of their holiday goodies to create festive place settings. I love EASY solutions to make my home festive and more special, so I thought table runners and placemats would be the best way for me to achieve a holiday look to match our tastes and create a table setting with a pop! And when it comes to budget, Walmart surprised me with these cute colorful options that were super easy on my wallet.
Take a peek at the various looks I created after buying a table runner and two different place mat options to create place settings that POP and WOW for the holidays!
3 Christmas Tablescape Options
These are 4 placemats that I bought for only $1.96 each from the Holiday Time line sold at Walmart. I love the shimmers amidst the multicolor threads of the placemat. The perfect place setting!
I love how these Poinsetta Cutwork Placemats by Better Homes & Gardens turned out on my kitchen table. I like to leave them out all day long – even when we are not eating, as they look so bright and colorful for the holidays. These work for a casual everyday place setting or to use with guests for a more special affair.
You can buy these Poinsetta Placemats in store at Walmart or on Walmart.com. I bought my 4 placemats in store priced at $2.94 each.
You can tell I like to mix up the look in my kitchen on a regular basis! This Holiday Time Table runner is really neat and looks great with a bowl of Christmas ornaments or evergreen mix used as a centerpiece. This is also from Walmart’s Holiday Time line and I bought it for only $8.94 in store at Walmart.
