Merry & Bright Holiday Table Setting

My Christmas decorations over the years have changed from traditional red and green holiday decor, to neutral with a touch of glam.  I love my glam farmhouse Christmas tree and decor, but every year I contemplate changing things up with bright and cheery colors.  While I haven’t taken the plunge to completely go bright and bold, I’ve teamed up with Cricut and DecoArt to show you how you can dress up your holidays with a merry and bright table setting!

I’ve created several DIY projects that are big on impact and easy on execution to help you add a bright bold twist to your holiday decor.  Head over to the DecoArt blog to see all the projects and get step-by-step instructions.  

This colorful table setting is perfect for a girls-night in or your annual Christmas Eve dinner.  The holidays are such a cheerful time of year, it only makes sense to have your party decorations be as cheerful and fun too.  I look forward to this time of year and welcoming guest to our table to enjoy delicious food, great conversation and create extraordinary memories, and with these fun decorations everyone will feel merry and bright!

I am in love with my new DIY colorful chargers and I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make.  I just might start making custom chargers for all of our dinner parties.

My Cricut Maker is one of my favorite craft tools and I have recently been obsessed with making all kinds of felt projects.  I thought a colorful DIY felt leaf garland would be perfect for this bright and modern table setting.  I absolutely love how this turned out, and after our dinner party I hung it in my daughters room since it perfectly matched her bedroom decor.

I love sending my guest home with a little gift to remind them of all the fun memories we made.  I created simple party favors, that also served as place cards for our guest. I used my Cricut Maker to cut out the names of each of our guest in gold glitter iron-on vinyl.  I used my EasyPress to iron on the names to a leaf and then attached the leaves to the wrapped gifts.  

I love filling my home with family and friends, especially this time of year, and creating beautiful memories.  With the help of Cricut and DecoArt I am able to add lots of pizzaz to our celebrations with ease! Make sure you stop by the DecoArt blog to see all of the supplies and instructions for this merry and bright table setting.

  1. Mariah, I love all your Merry & Bright projects this year. They are so fun.

  2. I love these colors! Just last month I bought teal chargers for my holiday table and thought it might brighten the table. I am tired of red and green as terrible as that sounds.
    Your table brightened my day!
