Little House on the Prairie Inspired Christmas Tablescape

Ma liked everything on her table to be pretty.

I have fond memories of reading the Little House on the Prairie books and watching the TV show as a young girl. I love Christmas and tablescapes, so I decided to create a Christmas Tablescape inspired by the Little House on the Prairie “Christmas at Plum Creek” episode from Season 1.

I remember reading how excited the girls were about receiving not only a stick of candy, but also a penny. And not just any penny, but a shining bright, new penny! And how Ma gushed over her sweet potatoes. When you think about it, it puts everything into perspective. Sometimes, we all can get too carried away in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season that we forget what’s really important.

I wanted to keep this tablescape as simple and authentic as possible. I spent some time exploring my local vintage store to find a few pieces, along with my local craft store and created a few pieces of my own. I tried not to spend a lot of money on this tablescape and challenged myself to use a lot of what I had on hand the way the Ingalls family did for their Christmas gifts.

Step Three. Set your table. Place the Linen Chargers on the table, followed by the white plates with tin plates on top. I scoured my local vintage shop and was able to find a variety of tin plates. If you have one of those near you, I recommend checking it out to see what you can find!

Step Four. Place a tin cup on the right side of each place setting. I then added a small pine cone to the left side of each place setting. Placing a DIY No Sew Napkin Cloth to the right side of each setting, I added the silverware.

Step Five. Towards the end of the table, I added the Natural Cone Christmas Trees. I was able to find these trees at my local craft store.
