When you’re trying to have a more eco-friendly holiday, it makes sense to choose cloth napkins, placemats, and tablecloths. When creating centerpieces and name cards choose re-usable or natural decor items.
Holiday Table Settings
Cloth holiday table settings can be re-used year after year and cut down on the waste of disposables. Natural decor items can be returned to the outdoors when you no longer need them. Consider these things when choosing holiday table settings for an eco-friendly holiday.
- Type of material. Choose sustainably grown textiles for the most eco-friendly choice.
- Pick organic materials to ensure the plants were not grown using dangerous chemicals.
- Chose linens whose colors and patterns are created using eco-friendly dyes
- Consider how the holiday table settings are made. Select products that are made by hand when possible.
- Shop locally made and locally sold to reduce the impact of transportation costs.
- Use reds, greens, and browns from nature to accent your holiday table. Berries, pine boughs, and pine cones are the perfect winter holiday accents.

When thinking about your table settings, decide on the theme of your party. A small family affair may call for simple Christmas table settings.

Elegant table settings ideas
Consider the overall theme before you decide how many disposable items you’ll be using. You may be able to rent things that you don’t already have. Finding simple Christmas table settings doesn’t have to be expensive.
Christmas table decor
While most Christmas table decor is red, green, and white. You will find sets that are gold and silver as well. But, don’t be afraid to play with colors.
There is some truly stunning pink Christmas decor available for those that want a non-traditional color.
Homemade Christmas table decorations
I added a clear glass candle holder, some pine cones, and a few snips of pine from our front yard to create an eco-friendly nature theme for my eco-friendly holiday table.
Everything can be reused again next year except for the paper which was recycled. This is one of my favorite simple Christmas table settings.
Christmas table centerpieces
Of course, most tables will have Christmas table centerpieces on them. Many people will opt for something simple like poinsettia. But, please if you have cats or dogs, keep in mind that these are poisonous to them. You can use an artificial plant if you feel you need a poinsettia.
If you’re looking for elegant Christmas centerpieces, I found a few things on Amazon that I truly fell in love with. You can group these together and add elements from the outdoors.
