Rustic Christmas Sideboard



As you probably already know, I usually try to coordinate the sideboard in my dining room with whatever tablescape I have created on the table. 

Here's a look at the rustic or country themed Christmas décor on my sideboard that I designed to go with my latest tablescape which you can see


I started with this large vintage bible which has special meaning to us (story for another day) and placed it in a wire basket.

A rugged cross stands beside it as a reminder of God's gift to us, His son, Jesus Christ.

Some birch logs and red berries add an outdoorsy accent.

Small Christmas trees and pillar candles give some height to the display.
 

The full view.

This white metal star represents the star that shone over Bethlehem.

I also created a little vignette on the table beside the sideboard.

A white pitcher is filled with Christmas greenery and some faux snowballs sit in front.

Birch and pine cones are displayed in the other corner.

I got this metal pine cone at Home Outfitters a few years back.

All it takes to get the look of a...

are some natural elements like birch and

some greenery with a few lights along with

something that speaks of the true meaning of Christmas.

Hope you enjoyed seeing it.

Thanks for visiting!

Beautiful sideboard Lori! Love the Bible and Cross to remind us of the meaning of Christmas. I recently found a large old Bible at my parents home and think I'll use it on my Christmas sideboard. Thanks for that inspiration. I always love your attention to detail in each of your designs.
