Whimsical Winter Village Blog

Christmas is almost here, so we decided to share some ideas to help you make your own whimsical winter village table decorations. It doesn’t take much to set up this fun scene and your kids will love it.

We started with a bright red tablecloth, but you can use any color that you prefer. Then we added a beveled mirror to the center of the table to add a look of winter without the mess of flake snow. You can also use a snow blanket cut to the shape that you need for your table.

Close up Village Scene

Next we added some village pieces on top of our mirror. Making it reflect the scene of a winter day with kids out playing in the snow. You can use any village pieces you have on hand or pick up some at your local Lowes, or Walgreens. Pretty much any store that sells Christmas supplies will carry some village pieces. Just a few cute pieces are all you need, unless you have a huge table. A house or two, some trees, animals & people will set the scene nicely.

We used Santa’s house, trees, a bridge, a north pole sign, a little lake with animals and people dressed up for a winter day to complete our village.

Whisical Place Setting

To add to our winter scene we used plates with a fun patchwork edge. Look for dishes that have lots of color and cute graphics. Santa, snowmen, reindeer and snowflakes will all work to add a festive look.

Red napkins we’re added that we tied with a simple silver ribbon. We then placed a single silver reindeer on top. We didn’t tie the reindeer to the napkin to make it easier for guests to remove when ready to eat. You can find glitter reindeer almost anywhere. I even noticed them in Walmart the other day for $3.99 for a pack of 12. They were not as 3 dimensional as the one’s in the photo, but would still work nicely. They also had glitter snowflakes which could be used instead.

Eggnog with candy cane

I just love the wine goblets with the wintry tree scene on them. We filled them with eggnog, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a peppermint candy cane. They looked so yummy it was hard keeping everyone from drinking the eggnog before the photo’s we’re finished.(One of the hazards of doing food blogs!)

A white frosty drink or hot chocolate drink looks great for a winter scene. Don’t forget to add a special touch like a candy cane, chocolate covered marshmallows or a rock candy stir stick.

Snowflake view of winter village

Our favorite part of this scene was the simple snowflakes we hung from the ceiling with clear line. They’re a little bit of a challenge when you can’t see the line, but well worth the effort.

We found the snowflakes at the dollar store in a pack of two. They we’re the perfect finishing touch to our whimsical winter village.

I hope this gives you some inspiration for your holiday gatherings this year.

May the blessings of the season be yours
