Provence-Inspired Christmas Tables...


For their artlessly chic use of natural materials (probably found in the garden), for keeping it simple and beautiful, for offering homage to the Christmas season without going totally over the top with bling and overload... this is why I have always loved the Provençal ways at Christmastime. I'm looking for ideas for our Christmas decor and found some clean and simple ideas on Pinterest to share with you:


here round lights are in a garland made with olive leaves and
placed on the table center...

short on floor space for the Christmas tree?... use this wall-mounted
idea using logs in graduated sizes... love this!!

elements I love here:  lots of clear glass, reflecting the light, white tableware and linens,
natural wood. The pages of oldbooks become part of the design,
and of course the stone wall peeking in from the right isn't so bad either!

I've always adored topiaries olive trees, and this enfilade marching 
down the table are gorgeous... the rest of the
decor is light and white, to let the olive trees have the focus...

 little twinkly lights are perfect touch!


here the wooden rafters play a big role; twigs, lights and starts 
are hung from them.. and the lavender
table is gorgeous played against the gray walls 

and silver angels. .. natural wood fireplace surround

simple olive branch tied to napkins... elegant and beautiful


here a little ceramic bird sits in his twiggy nest as a napkin ring; 
the rest of the table is done in silver, white and glass

olive leaves are tied with white ribbons around these 
fat white candles in front of a mirror..love!

  6. Simply beautiful. I especially love all the olive branches. Just a touch of green is always perfect. My decorating inside is almost done - now it's time to tackle the outdoors, but with temperatures well below freezing, I think I prefer to stay in the house. Thanks for the lovely ideas!

  9. Ayant un pied en Provence et un pied en Île de France, j'aimerais pour un Noël provençal faire un décor parisien, n'est-t-il pas ?
