Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Each year, I love to do a slightly different color theme or style, and I love buying new stuff on sale after the holiday and refinding it the next season!

I like to spread the decor throughout my house so there is a little something in each room.

Here is a round up of simple, easy place settings that look great without all the fuss!

Instead of moving straight into my christmas decor this year, I decided to first decorate for “winter”. I spotted some inexpensive bottle brush trees in the dollar section of Target and loved how colorful they were.
