How to Set the Table using Christmas Terrariums from Walking on Sunshine

Is it beginning to look like Christmas in your house? 
Well, it really should by now!  We have just a few days left to get everything done.  Today I want to share with you another idea for how to set the table for Christmas.  This time using terrariums.  One of the more popular trends these days is creating your own terrariums using glass jars, mason jars, old pickle jars, you name it!  I have had a love for mason jars since I was a teenager and use them in my home decor all the time.  So let's see how I set the table using terrariums!


One of the more popular posts on my blog is the post I did on Christmas Terrariums a few years ago. My hubby must have read the post last year also because for Christmas he gave me a package of fake snow, a few mini ceramic animals and a few mini Christmas trees.  My kids thought that was a silly gift but not me!  I was so happy!

I couldn't wait to make my own Christmas terrariums!  I already had my table set for our family for Christmas Day but I also knew I couldn't wait a year to use this great gift my hubby gave me.  So I created another table setting for our New Year's Eve dinner.  We don't do much on New Year's Eve; it's usually just my mom, hubby and the kids for dinner.  I didn't let that stop me.  I got out my mason jars and a few of the big glass jars I have and in just a few minutes I had the beginning of  a really nice centerpiece.

Here's the table set for New Year's Eve dinner.  I used my every day white dishes, my antique red glasses and Christmas plaid napkins.  Nothing really fancy, but oh so pretty.  I added fresh pine from the trees that line our property, red candle holders, pine cones, fake berries and even a strand of

Isn't that pretty?  I love this look and am putting something similar together for this year's Christmas Day dinner this weekend.  My table isn't set yet!

Here's a closeup of the terrariums with the twinkle lights.  And if you're wondering, I kept this up until the end of January since it really was a more winter centerpiece.  At the end of January I put the snow in a large zip lock bag to save to use for this holiday season.
