My decor theme for this year’s holiday season is simple and classic with vintage elements. I combined organic items you find in nature like pine cones and reindeer moss with fragrant beeswax candles and soft velvet ribbon. See how I use natural elements with timeless patterns to create this neutral Christmas dining room.

My style is upscale and neutral. However, if you are looking for traditional red-and-white Christmas inspiration, head over to the opulent and colorful Christmas tablescape I did in the past!

Dining room Christmas tree

If you have the space, a tree in the dining room is the ultimate way to add Christmas decor and ambiance!

This sparse Christmas tree from King of Christmas has a minimalist look making it perfect for this space. The tree has a vintage look and inspired the rest of my simple and classic Christmas decor.

No need to decorate this tree with ornaments or garlands. Having it bare with just the lights on contributes to that organic woodland mood.

I opted for a basket as a tree skirt alternative that brings another natural element and hides the ugly tree stand.

Simple Christmas table setting

I’m a big fan of mixing everyday items with holiday pieces for a layered look. No need to spend a fortune and have extra holiday items to store.

For this Christmas place setting, I used my everyday white dishes and white cloth napkins. What makes it special is the patterned placemat and gold-tone flatware.

Here are some pretty placemat options for you. How cute would the rustic woodland placemats look in my Christmas dining room?

All this place setting needed was a pinecone tied with velvet ribbon to give it a Christmas touch. The velvet color tied in with the centerpiece candles perfectly.

Christmas sideboard decor

Continuing the theme of simplicity, the cane console displays the most gorgeous pair of proud reindeer brass figurines. They are executed in a more modern form which complements the vintage portrait behind it.

The reindeer usually sell out but don’t worry because they come back every year!

I love combining different design styles and elements – modern and vintage in this case. The biggest visual impact comes from the collection of candlesticks and beeswax taper candles from The Beeswax Co. They are a combination of 6″ and 9″ tapers.

The centerpiece ties in the woodland theme with a display of reindeer moss, pine cones, and various sizes of beeswax pillars from The Beeswax Co.

I wanted something simple yet impactful and clustering candles is a great way to accomplish that. The key to making the centerpiece design look organic is to use candles with varying heights and widths.

After the candles were in place, I was able to move the moss around until I got it just right!
