Rustic Lodge Holiday Tablescape

Rustic-Lodge has been such a popular theme for holiday decorating and floral arrangements this season, and Event Designer, Audrey Chaney truly brought the beauty to the table with her rustic holiday tablescape and lodge decor, with a contemporary spin.

Rustic Lodge Holiday

From the gorgeous garlands of juniper, faux antlers, and fur poinsettia details of the tablescape, to the metallic and wood candleholders and vases filled with magnolia, and accents of pine cone. Audrey’s delicate and tasteful styling will truly inspire you to take on this theme to bring the holiday spirit to your home. And thanks to the talent of Weddings by Scott and Dana Photography, these designs truly came to life!

Lodge Holiday Decor

The holidays are my favorite time of the year – entertaining, baking, spending time with family and friends. And — the decor! Who doesn’t love decking their home out and making it super cozy!

Getting to work with some of the new winter-inspired foliages and accent pieces from Afloral’s collection surely brought the winter spirit into my home. It can be so simple to create a beautiful table centerpiece mixing foliages, metallic candles and a few blooms!

Metallic Decorations
Rustic Lodge Tablescape

I created this look by layering foliages and flowers – working around place settings. Adding candles to your table design always adds some movement and flickering candlelight. The perfect finishing touch! Each place setting was garnished with a sprig of cedar to make the place setting extra special!

Holiday DIY Wreath
Geometric Vase
Wood Candleholder

To dress up the mantle, I chose mixed elements of wood candleholders I placed blooms in, metallic votives and geometric vessels with magnolia blooms. The pinecone wreath was easy to dress up with more white magnolia, flocked branches and metallic leaves. Simple and stunning!

Tin Lantern

Mixing the look up, the mantle was transformed with an all foliage garland, tin accents and antlers for a more rustic look.

Christmas Signs

For the table setting on this look, things were kept simple – foliages and textures with the fur poinsettias and white berries with pinecone accents.

Holiday Chair Swag

A natural swag was a fun addition to the chair back for an interesting touch. Imagine if you dressed up each of your guests chairs, and they got to each take a swag home with them from your holiday party? Love it!

Faux Christmas flowers and foliage are the perfect option to make your holiday arrangements last through the entire winter season, and for years to come. Reuse them for different projects throughout the year, or store them and bring them back out to recreate your holiday dreams year after year!
