This non-traditional Celestial Christmas table hits a romantic note in navy, gold, and moody jewel tones all under a blanket of falling stars.

Hello! I'm so excited to be once again joining a fabulous group of bloggers for a Christmas Tablescape Hop organized by Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate. Scroll down to see them all!

One of my favorite Christmas songs, O Holy Night, and the celestial trend you see everywhere right now, inspired by my moody, wintery table.

Holiday Table with stars

It's hardly traditional, but I love the deep, unexpected jewel tones combined with a few traditional elements.

The Tablerunner

The table runner in a blue as deep as a clear night sky sets the tone for the table.

The Centerpiece

We all know I like to keep my centerpieces wild and untamed, and this one is no exception. Because my table is so long, I divided the piece up into three sections.

Ruby red poinsettias are joined by peonies, evergreens, while violet-blue speedwell adds contrast and interest.

The Table Setting

Christmas is one of the few times we pull out our good china.

The silver-rimmed china is perfect for this setting, especially topped with a celestial dessert plate decorated in silver and gold stars then topped with miniature tree toppers.

My stenciled napkins make another appearance, adding a dash of violet. Although an unusual addition, when I look to the night skies I see many colors - violet being one of them.

Other Decor

My favorite element of this heavenly Christmas table is the overhead mobile, with it's cascading moons and stars setting just the right tone for the table.

O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

O night divine, indeed!

    Love the use of the willow tree angel. I’ve heard tablescapers say so many times “shop your home,” and this is a great example of that. I never would have thought of using that. Thanks for sharing.

    Kim, I love your O Holy Night theme and how you carried it out here. That Willow Tree angel is very nice in her hark above the centerpiece, and I agree with you in that my favorite element is the set of starry mobiles hanging from above. The way you offset your plate stack is a unique way of setting the table. Nicely done! Merry December!

  3. Cecilia on December 5, 2019 at 10:30 am

    How pretty, Kim! I love the stars hanging from the chandelier! Have a beautiful Christmas season! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  4. Cynthia on December 5, 2019 at 10:57 am

    It’s beautiful. I love the angel and all the stars. The mobile was a wonderful idea and the star cookies looked so tasty. Great job.

  5. Shelley on December 5, 2019 at 12:02 pm

    Beautiful table – love the gold and blue together and that star mobile is fantastic! Great hopping with you and enjoy the holidays!

  6. Jenna on December 5, 2019 at 5:25 pm

    Such an unusual combination of elements and colors, it is beautiful! I love the starry angel theme, and the stars and moons falling from above make it so special! The plate stacks are so pretty, and the star cookies the perfect touch! Happy Holidays Kim!

    Kim, your table really conveys the specialness of the season. Your deep blue runner and gold stars throughout the table and in your mobile, surrounds everyone at your gorgeous table with the hint of being apart of the O Holy Night. Your Willow tree angel adds to your heavenly and majestic feel. A beautiful table to count your blessings for. Have a wonderful and blessed holiday season.

    Kim, shopping your house is always great. Love the Celestial Christmas table. Stars and angels are lovely. Such pretty plates lined up perfectly. The star cookies are perfect.

  9. bonnie morgan on December 6, 2019 at 5:15 pm

    “O Holy NIght” is a favorite of mine also. I love the celestial theme. Your mobile is so pretty and unique. I go out often and gaze upon the stars and moon.
    I love your china and the star tree toppers at each plate.
    Those cookies are so pretty and I know they are delicious.
    I enjoyed blog hopping with you. Have a special and Merry Christmas.

  10. Debbee M on December 6, 2019 at 5:26 pm

    Kim, what a unique and special theme for your holiday table that will transition beautifully to New Years. Lots of great details like the navy runner and sweet star candles. But, I simply adore that decorated chandy! Did you share how you did it? I’d love to copycat for my if you wouldn’t mind?

  11. Chloe on December 6, 2019 at 10:55 pm

    Kim, I love the theme of your table! What a great idea, to base your table around such a lovely Christmas carol! Your angel is quite heavenly, and how lovely all of the stars used throughout your table. I particularly noticed the star pattern in your stemware! Now, may I have a star cookie, please? Have a very merry Christmas!

  12. Pam Richardson on December 6, 2019 at 11:10 pm

    I love your “Oh Holy Night” theme and your use of dramatic colors. The willow tree angel is so perfect for your theme and the stars and moon mobile is the finishing touch! It is a pleasure to hop with you and wishing you a most joyous Christmas seaso !
