Elf of the Shelf Tablescape

Welcome to Day 22 of our 25 days of Christmas celebration. We’re headed into the last few days of our holiday, and I am SUPER excited! Today, I thought I’d share with you this AMAZING Elf on the Shelf Tablescape. SAY WHAT?! Yep, you heard me! If you’ve been keeping up with that darn Elf every day, my hats off to you. This was our first year participating in the tradition, and my kids have had a blast. We have NOT put stress on ourselves to set up intricate situations. We simply move him from one place to the next every day, and that is enough.

But for the big day, we’ve been planning on having Robbie (our elf) as the star of the show. And I wanted to show you how you can do the same, making your kids SUPER happy for this holiday.

Set the table: Place Red Charger, followed by the white plastic plate. Then lay the red with a white trim paper plate on top. I added a red & white fake lollipop across each plate for an added festive look.

Place a white mug to the right of each table setting. Add your DIY Christmas Red & White Mason Jars. I put candy canes in each one.

The wrapping paper and garland are so bright and fun! Though, I have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with our elf!
