Think lots of evergreens, pinecones, deer, woodsy accents that naturally say Christmas and pay homage to your favorite winter scene. These are a few of my favorite things and what inspired this Woodland Rustic Holiday table.
Black & white Buffalo plaid. I wanted my runner to pop from my black dining room table, so I created a double-layered runner using a white tablecloth folded to the width I wanted and leaving enough room on each side of the runner for my placesettings. I centered the plaid runner on top of the white and centered it left to right and “top to bottom”. When I couldn’t find the runner in the fabric and color I was dreaming of, I made it! Runners typically run 72”-108” long and this fabric runs 44-45” wide. I wanted the length to be about 5-6 inches from the end of my table, so I had the fabric cut 90” long, making a 2.5-foot runner. I kept it folded with the double thickness in case I wanted to use it in a different way at another time.
