A Fun and Colorful Kids’ Christmas Table

Sharing is Caring

While it’s tough to get back to the grind after the long Thanksgiving weekend, I’ve got something that’ll make you smile this Monday morning … a kids’ Christmas decor tour with some amazing blogging friends!

I’m so excited to join Chelsea of Two Twenty One along with a dozen other blogging buddies to bring you some fun kids’ holiday decor today.

If you’re joining me from Love & Renovations, welcome! Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Colorful Kids Christmas Decor at Our Home

I absolutely love decorating for Christmas … and the kids’ rooms typically get the royal treatment when it comes to Christmas decorating around here.

Sure, I enjoy decorating other rooms in our home too, but the reality is that the kids appreciate the decor the most, I think.

And I get to channel my inner 10-year-old to make it a magical season for them.

Last week, I shared our candy-themed Christmas tree that’s in our playroom:

A candy-themed Christmas tree in the kids playroom! This fun tree is a white faux Christmas tree decorated with candy themed ornaments.

My kids are obsessed with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory these days, so the candy-themed tree felt totally fitting for the playroom.

We also made a few DIY ornaments for that tree, including these adorable gumball machine ornaments.

They were so simple to make and look awesome on the tree! Check out the super easy DIY ornament tutorial right here.

Colorful Kids Christmas Table Settings

We rarely host Christmas dinner for our extended family, but we do host some kind of a kids’ Christmas party each year at our house.

Last year we held a Christmas craft party at our house for my oldest and her friends, and this year we’re hosting a Christmas luncheon and gingerbread decorating party for some close family pals.

It’s the perfect excuse to create a colorful kids’ Christmas table — so that’s exactly what I did.

As always, I aimed to keep the kids’ Christmas tablescape fun, practical and budget-friendly … and I think I accomplished all three of those goals!

Here’s a peek at our festive kids’ Christmas table:

The colorful kids Christmas table settings are made with red and gold charger plates with colorful polka dot dinner plates atop a coloring page table covering!

I started with a black and white holiday-themed tablecloth from Amazon that the kids can color on. The best part? It’s reusable! Yep, the tablecloth can be washed (provided that you use washable crayons or markers on it) so that you can use it year after year.

The base of this colorful kids Christmas table is a black and white tablecloth that the kids can color on - it's a great way to keep them busy during Christmas dinner

You know how kids eat their dinner (consisting of a dinner roll and some mashed potatoes, usually) in five minutes flat?

Well, this tablecloth is a great way to keep them at the table and prevent them from wandering around the house while all the adults try to enjoy dinner.

After finding the adorable tablecloth, I added a black and white buffalo check scarf I already owned as a table runner, along with a strand of sparkly Christmas bulb garland that I found at Michael’s for 50 percent off a couple weeks ago.

A closer look at the kids Christmas table settings with gold charger plates and colorful paper plates, Christmas lights scattered on the table, and a coloring book table cloth.

I snagged these gold chargers for $2 each (!!!) at Target, added red paper dinner plates and these festive Caspari dessert plates.

The napkins and flatware are disposable too.

Colorful kids Christmas table setting made up of a plastic gold charger plate, red paper dinner plate, colorful polka dot dessert plate, and disposable fork and spoon.

I wrapped a handful of crayons in cellophane treat bags and tied them with black and white twine, placing one bag at each table setting.

Last but not least, the reusable glass milk bottles with striped straws were another great (and cheap) Amazon find. I turned them into place cards for each child by attaching a painted wooden letter to each bottle using that same black and white twine I used on the bags of crayons.

These kid-friendly cups with candy cane straws are a fun addition to the kids Christmas table settings.

Where was this when I was a kid!? I LOVE it. The "table cloth" is genus!

Thanks, Hannah! My kids were pretty obsessed with this setup....and the tablecloth was definitely a hit. It's no longer black and white. Kids had a field day with it. ;-)

This is just so fun! My kids would be so thrilled!


Tuesday 3rd of December 2019

Thank you, Amanda! I typically tell the kids to keep their crayons and markers away from my decor, but this of course is the exception...and they are SO excited about that. :)


Monday 2nd of December 2019

My daughter would absolutely LOVE this holiday table! It's so beautiful and kid friendly!!! Love it!


Monday 2nd of December 2019

Thanks so much, April! I think my kids are pretty pumped to be able to color on a tablecloth...considering most of the time I tell to keep their crayons and markers away from my decor. Ha! ;-)

My boys would absolutely love this table!! They would want it up all year long. ;)


Monday 2nd of December 2019

Thanks, Laura! Ha, I suspect my kiddos might be in the same boat of wanting to keep the table decor up all year long. I haven't had a request for that yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's coming soon!
