I set a table by the twinkling lights of the tree for some Merry Christmas nesting!

A tartan throw provides a foundation for the table as a tablecloth, adding a warm and cozy plaid layer. . .

Twig flatware and tree slice chargers add a woodland note.

Cypress, juniper, boxwood and magnolia leaves clipped from the trees and shrubs

provide a natural evergreen runner, sprinkled down the center of the table.

Pine cones add texture and contrast and Nandina berries and ornaments

add a cheery pop of seasonal red color.

Watching the birds at the feeders in the winter months brings me great joy

and I love celebrating the season with bird ornaments!

Bird ornaments flew in to flock at the table. . .

A Woodland Birch Centerpiece, courtesy of Lynch Creek Farm,

provides a vessel for some merry nesting at the table!

The Woodland Birch Centerpiece comes with a birch pillar LED candle for a soft, flickering glow.

Woodland Birch Centerpiece Lynch Creek Farm and Giveaway

The pillar is encircled by a ring of fresh noble fir, incense cedar, and white pine. Pine cones, red ball ornaments and red burlap bows add interest to create this woodsy, birch Christmas centerpiece for the holidays.

I placed the centerpiece in a wood bowl and added a Cardinal ornament, along

with a couple of ball ornaments with a pine cone design,for an additional pop of red.

Lynch Creek Farm is a small family owned company, dedicated to producing sustainable evergreen products, procured from the forests in their backyard of the great Pacific Northwest. Evergreen boughs are cultivated by trimming the lower branches of younger, coniferous trees in healthy and robustly forested areas, along the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Once a tree matures to 15 – 20 years in age, it is no longer trimmed, prolonging the lifespan of the woodlands, ensuring they will continue to grow and thrive for decades to come.

Treat your centerpieces as you would a potted plant:

After receiving your centerpiece, add 1/2 cup of water to the center of the oasis foam. Mist with water and add another 1/2 cup water every 2-3 days to bring out the fragrance. Place your centerpiece in a cool location, out of direct sunlight. With proper care, your centerpiece should last at least 3 weeks.

    A wonderful centerpiece for Christmas – so versatile with fresh greens! It would be very welcomed at our house!

      Such a beautifully decorated table! I love it! I am late this year getting my decorations up, so I’d say I’m probably halfway through decking the halls. I follow Lynch Creek on Facebook.

  2. December 7, 2020 at 6:26 am

    I always look forward to your Woodland tree featuring the beautiful bird ornaments and now I am crushing over your beautiful table adorned with those enchanting birds. Mary, your layering of plates and the overall table is always impeccable and I know there is always more treats for the eyes in the next image. I am in awe that you can create your table runner of evergreens from your gardens…always stunning. I so love this table and that cardinal in the pinecone is the best (source?) I have two more trees to decorate and the porch to complete and I will be done with the exception of finding some cyclamen. Have a Very Merry Day Mary!!!…So happy to be sharing our love for all things Blooms with you!

    Decking the halls is complete except for my usual fresh green centerpiece which I put in a large Lennox Winter Song bowl on the kitchen table. As always, your tablescape is festive and your centerpiece is lovely, especially with the added red ornaments! I will browse Lynch Creek Farms’ arrangements.

    Mary, this was a beautiful Christmas post. The Tartan table covering, the beautiful centerpiece from Lynch Creek Farms and the Twig flatware were perfect. Loving the Dinnerware with a beautiful pine ones and Bird theme is right up my alley. What a creative spirit you have when it comes to pulling everything together in a cohesive theme. And of course the tree slice charger was delightful. Thanks for sharing this setting. I am aware of the time and thought that went into it. Since I am in an apartment now, it doesn’t take long to decorate. I have done that a week ago. And my gifts are wrapped and under my tree. Let the parties begin. Mary Christmas to you and Hubby.🎄🎄🎄

    • December 7, 2020 at 6:40 am

      Hi Carolyn, So good to hear from you! I think of you often and still have a sweet floral bird nest of yours! Hope you and Dave and doing well in these unsettling times. I know your apartment must be very Merry indeed! I have a pile of boxes and decorations I’m still digging through…*sigh*…I always remember you saying, “Creative minds are rarely tidy”. :) Wishing you a very Merry December and Christmas season. ♥

    I followed Lynch Creek Wreaths on Facebook. I am moving slow this year with decorating but I do have one artificial wreath on the front door and one natural wreath on the back door but it doesn’t look nearly as nice as Lynch Creek Wreaths! I also have some lights around the house and one tall pencil Christmas tree in the house.

    This posting gave me such Christmas joy! The centerpiece by Lynch Creek is gorgeous and I am happily now following this company with whom I share geography–we are both located on Oregon. This has been a difficult time for everyone due to the pandemic and the beautiful and festive decorations are bound to lift spirits. I love all of it! Unfortunately, my dear hubby is struggling with some health issues this holiday season so I haven’t been able to do any Christmas decorating. Looking through this lovely post was just what I needed. Happy and healthy wishes to all this Christmas. And thank you for allowing me to experience the beauty of the season, if only in pictures.

    • December 7, 2020 at 7:22 am

      Thank you for your visit and sweet comment Sue. What a beautiful state you live in! So sorry to hear about your hubby’s struggles, what a difficult time for so many. Merry Christmas Wishes and a Happier New Year to you both and us all. ♥

    I am now following Lynch Creek Farm. Thank you for mentioning these other sites/blogs, I have not heard of them and enjoy pages like yours. I love the Lynch Creek fresh wreaths arrangements. We live in the country, with many acres of pine trees – very old trees – I love finding new inspiring arrangement ideas. Thank you! Your page has always been my favorite – I love to browse your page when I wake up early and do not want to wake my husband – so I put my phone on low light, sit back and dream by looking at your shares. This is a beautiful share.

    So nice

  11. December 7, 2020 at 7:18 am

    Good morning Mary. I adore your Christmas nesting table with the LCF centerpiece surrounded by fresh greens and birds. The tartan throw is a perfect foundation for your woodland table. I do love the dinnerware with the wood slice chargers and twig flatware, just more woodland beauty. It is going to be a cold and windy day, a hot chocolate kind of day. It is always a joy to share MMB’s with you. Wishing you a lovely day!

    Happy Holidays, Mary. I truly adore your posts and relish in your creativity. Your photography is better than most. I used to live in NH and was able to forge for cypress, pine and fur boughs for decorating. I now live in SW Florida and the foraging is not so good thus I would really enjoy the woodland centerpiece. My decorations are up and we enjoy the twinkling lights each night after dinner. As with every year, I am looking for new decorations to fill in and complete my decorating.

    I learned about Lynch Creek from you several years ago. Great company. They have made my Christmas shopping much easier each year. Everyone I send a Lynch Creek item to, loves it. I’d love to win and finish my decorating with this centerpiece on my dining room table! Beautiful PST,as always!

  18. December 7, 2020 at 7:59 am

    Mary, your Christmas display is amazing. My holiday decorations are just about finished. A beautiful Christmas centerpiece would be lovely on my dining room table. I can already smell the fresh evergreen. As for many, this Christmas will be very different. I won’t have all of my children and grandchildren here at my home in PA due to COVID. But, I am so thankful for all of my blessings and I look forward to celebrating with my children when it is safe.

    Thank you for all of your inspiring decor and ideas, they always but a smile on my face and give me hope! Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    Hello Mary I’m finding it difficult to be as excited as usual about decorating this year. My family usually joins us for Christmas day but this year we have decided to cancel our get together due to health concerns.
    My Grandkiddies (all 6 ) will be joining us instead for some Facetime. Definitely going to miss the hugs and kisses!
    Your nesting table is something to get excited about….I usually display a small tree decorated with all bird ornaments but was going to skip putting up my themed trees throughout the house. Thanks to your inspiration I am definitely changing this decision and the birds will once again be feathering their nests for Christmas.
    Thank you for the JOY you bring to my world!

  22. December 7, 2020 at 8:13 am

    You always make magic with birds Mary, inside and out! I love the touches you added to the Lynch Creek Farm arrangement to really make it special, it is gorgeous on your table with holiday greens, reds and the adorable bird plates and napkin rings! The plaid napkins and tree slice chargers look wonderful in your woodland setting!

    Good morning Mary. I get so excited when I see your post pop up! I know it will be delightful and this one is so warm and welcoming. You always have just the right pieces to pull a look together. I have been following Lynch Creek Farms since your post last year. I ordered a centerpiece for my Aunt and it was perfect. Don’t tell, but another one from Lynch Creek Farms is on its way to her this year! She is 98 and we won’t be able to see her this year due to the virus. 😢 Our decorating is just getting started as we spent the weekend seeing the grandchildren in their outdoor choral concert. Merry Christmas and thank you for the inspiration!

  25. December 7, 2020 at 8:24 am

    Your table scales are always beautiful. I always look forward to seeing your post in my in box! I am following Lynn Creek farm on my FB. What beautiful work they do. As far as my decorations, I’m behind… winter storm took out my power for over 24hours this weekend and added extra outdoor work. Wet heavy snow here in NH. So hopefully this week it will get done. Merry Christmas Mary. Thanks for making it Merry and Bright.

    I love all of your posts, but this one grabbed my heart. I live in Maine where winter struck on Dec. 5th & 6th. My birdfeeders are my joy. I will be 70 next month and on many days the birds are my best friends. I have the Lenox “Winter Greeting” dishes and found your photos very inspiring. Thank you for cheering me on this cold (technically) late fall day. Christmas blessings.

    Love this! I love ALL your nesting related themes. I have a winter January nesting tree thanks to you! I’ve been following Lynch Creek since you introduced them to me last year. Their products are beautiful! Would love to win this centerpiece because that’s still on my to-do list! (I’m about 75% done.). My table is decorated even tho no one is coming but it still needs a centerpiece. I started earlier this year because it seems like everyone else did! Like the song says “we 🎼need🎶 a 🎄little 🎵🎺Christmas🎅🏻” this year for sure!

    The woodland table scape is inspiring, and the colorful Birds bring it to perfection. Today we will gathering green, holly, berries and pine cones on our walk though the woods. it is time to bring the fresh scent of the season inside. We signed up for Email notifications from Lynch Creel Farms; they will provide a perfect way to say happy Holidays to our loves ones, who will not be with us this year do to the Covid-19 Virus.

    Mary, your table is simply beautiful as always. I love nature and the way you brought the birds and cones into your arrangement.

I am following them on FB and got some nice ideas from their photos. I am finished with my decorating, except for making an arrangement for the kitchen table. The Christmas lights and all the beautiful decorations are such a lift to my spirit this December. Praying for a healthy and blessed Christmas to all.

    The beautiful woodland table you have created is absolutely amazing. Cardinals are, for me, a part of decorating my home every year. My decorating is complete – finished the day before Thanksgiving.. I have followed Lynch Creek FB and Instagram for some time. Being from the northwest I always am looking for, and supporting local family owned businesses. Thank you for sharing your inspiring table decor.

    I’m so in love with this tablescape. I’m hoping to secure a set of the bird salad plates. The LynchCreek centerpiece is the perfect touch. I thought I was just about done with my Christmas decorating, but now may need to tweak a few things. Thank you for the inspiration.

    Hi Mary! We began to decorate our home for Christmastime the day after Thanksgiving. We always go with a traditional style which lends to a beautiful background for my Possible Dreams Clothtique Santa Collection. I am pleased with how everything looks so far except for the coffee table in our great room. I have an empty dough bowl and two chunky candles on it for now. How nice a beautiful, fresh centerpiece from Lynch Creek Farms would look there!! And the aroma from the green boughs would just complete the feel of an old time Christmas I remember from my childhood! Thank you for introducing us to Lynch Creek Farms and the opportunity of their Giveaway! I have liked their page on Facebook and will share with my friends.
    Merry Christmas from Texas! Stay well and happy!
    Always, Patti

    Warm wishes from the Florida Keys! Thank you for all your inspiration throughout the year. especially your boatscapes, as we too have a boat on which we love to entertain ourselves and others. Boat decor, especially tropical, underweigh, zero waste, small storage space, boating decor is always a bit tricky, but a fresh post from you and a quiet place always inspires me to create lovely albeit simpler tropical versions of your lavish table scapes where I jut substitute items from the wrack line and our our marine environment! I’ve always appreciated decorating EVERYTHING all year round! Our holiday decor is coming along nicely since we started getting our christmas decor on the scene, the day after Thanksgiving. I just substitute your easily accessable northern greenery for our tropical greenery and of course seashells and all the other glittery ocean things come out to be repursposed as well. Occasionally I do a wink and hat tip to northern celebrations via coconuts painted with whimsical woodland creatures often inspired by your tablescapes( I wasn’t sure how to attach a photo but I’m told they are cute and folks are asking for me to paint more for them! ) We will continue to add and adjust our decor through the weeks as it will all culinate into a lovely socially distanced “boat up” concert at the dock with the local band we sing and play with for our neighborhood and friends to enjoy holiday fare again inspired by your blog and other’s recipes and decor. I can send photos of those next time we chat. once I figure out how to do that!. Thanks to this post, I just started following Lynch Creek Farms facebook page and the evergreen centerpiece would go nicely with some of the ideas I have planned. I will also share with others who like this beautiful evergreen feeling for the holidays for more inspiration! Stay Safe and well, Blessings to you and yours, Susan

      Lovely post, as always, Mary. I have lived in the Seattle area for 40+ years and was regrettably unfamiliar with Lynch Creek Farms. So glad you introduced me to that wonderful resource, Mary. I am still in the decorating process but hope to get more done today.

    Everything on Lynch Creek’s page is so lovely, as is your post. I am about 3/4 finished with decorating. I am challenging myself to NOT buy anything new. I did have to buy a package of ornament hooks for tree #3.

    Oh, Mary, your tablescape is gorgeous! We love nature and bird watching. Your plates, chargers and ornaments are just beautiful. You have a wonderful bird collection. I love the way you’ve done your napkins. I need to learn this technique! The centerpiece with the added ornaments are so pretty and I imagine it smells divine. Our home is mostly decorated but the walk in attic looks as though there’s been an explosion of the Christmas containers! Lol We’ll spend several hours cleaning up and storing the Thanksgiving items this week. During that time, something else will make it downstairs from the Christmas containers I am most certain. Enjoy your week! Clara❤️

    Mary, your table tree side is always a favorite for me. I love the twinkle lights and the bird theme. Beautiful centerpieces from Lynch Creek. Yes, I follow them!
    I’m still plugging along with decorating, but hope to wrap it up today. Our tree and mantel have been up and enjoyed for a week, the back entry and sunporch tables complete, so now just adding fluffs here and there as time permits.
    Happy Holidays!

    Mary,
    I always appreciate new websites with quality items, like Lynch Creek Farms I follow on fb, & wow what a gorgeous selection, of wreaths! I would enjoy a real one, I look forward to your new ideas, I love the rustic, deer antler outdoorsy look.
    I’ve gotten my tree up, it’s slow going. I can’t believe it but I’ve been disabled over the last 3 years, with chronic back pain, and cannot stand up very long, so I’ve got a ways to go.

    I would Love to win the Giveaway! Thank you all for inspiring us all, this Holiday Season & All Year Long

    Mmmmmmm, I can “smell” those fresh greens in your tablescape. Just finished decorating upstairs before sitting down with a mug of coffee and reading blogs. Now, on to writing Christmas cards, cookie baking and candy making later this week.

    Your table by your Christmas tree with the twinkling lights in the background is so warm and cozy, Mary. Isn’t that centerpiece so pretty??!! I’ll bet it smells amazing, too. It took me several days to finish my decorating, but now I can enjoy it!

    Lynch Creek Farm arrangements look beautiful! Nothing says Christmas more than fresh greens and naturals. Thanks for the opportunity. A centerpiece would finish my holiday decorating.

    I love my Lynch creek farm Autumn wreath which i received at Thanksgiving. I love the Woodland Birch Centerpiece as it would be perfect with my Lenox Everyday Greetings which have birds. I follow LCF on FB as well as instagram. Thank you Mary for the beautiful ideas and photos!

    I am a follower of your Facebook page. I am finished with my decorations and it feels really nice. In MN we have no snow on the ground so it doesn’t feel like December yet. I love this time of year!

    If this doesn’t say “Merry Christmas!” I don’t know what would. Mary, as usual, you wow me with your gorgeous styling of your holiday table. {and everything else you do} Warm, inviting, and all around cheerful, I would love to sit at your beautifully appointed table any and every time. Such a blessing to be part of our Monday Morning Blooms blogger group with you. xo Lidy

    Oh, oh, oh, I love everything about this table! I just finished decorating on Saturday- simpler gatherings this year meant fewer decorations. I use cardinals for Christmas, so your theme is singing my tune! Merry Christmas Mary.

    OMGoodness, that Holly and Ivy dishware is calling my name, and I am TRYING to be a good girl and resist:):) It is beautiful! . Your table, is, once again just perfection. My favorite ornament is the bird in the pine cone! The centerpiece that you chose is the BEST, thanks for the chance to win. I am following LCF on Facebook too. Have a very MERRY week, Mary!

    What a very berry – merry tablescape! Love the woodland setting with the birds and pinecones added. Those bird plates are pretty special too. I love the wooden chargers, so perfect for this type of a setting. I am 3/4 done, I still need to put out a special ceramic tree I made years ago for my mom and since her passing it came back to me. It will go on a hallway table and then I will be done ( I think, haha). My front side walk urns are now filled with holly branches, small white pine branches and pine cones. The garage window box even has one of my birds nest tucked in amongst the greens, turned out pretty cute. My mailbox planter is decorated too. I had fun walking our property gathering the items, I especially enjoy decorating with my own greenery from our trees and bushes. I found the sweetest nest underneath one our are large pines. It was formed with the pine needles, the inside circumference only being 2 inches and the outside of the nest is 5 inches, but the outside is woven with white batting or stuffing like from a pillow! I was awe-struck by it as it gives the impression of snow. Just the sweetest! I love the birds Mary and my inside tree is decorated with Cardinals, white lights, icicles, and a few frosted white pearalized small balls. It will stay like this through February as our winters are so long, it gives me joy. I am not on Facebook, but I will pin some of these wonderful pictures. Thank you Mary for another great give-away.

    Mostly done decorating! I feel so happy seeing all of this stuff which has been boxed up since last 01/01 again. I have quite a few pieces of Dickens Village which my grandson and I put out on Thanksgiving weedend and leave up through February. It’s just too pretty to put away any sooner.

    We are just getting in the spirit to decorate. Tree is up, red birds in place, faux wreath hung over fireplace. Finishing the tree this week and preparing to set the table for Christmas day! This beautiful
    Centerpiece would be the grand finale!

    Hi Mary,
    My mom a big fan of yours, and has spoke about your blog/Instagram page forever! I finally started you a few months ago and I’m addictive now as well! Absolutely love your ideas and style. You’ve definitely been a great inspiration during these trying times. Hope you enjoy your holidays!

  99. December 9, 2020 at 5:30 pm

    Forgot to include….Almost done with my decorating. Had lots of help from my 16 year old daughter. I’m now following Lynch Creek on FB…love their beautiful arrangements!

    Those birdie plates are so sweet! I adore watching the birds all day as I garden, this is the richest environment I have ever lived in my lifetime, you can sit any where and just watch like a giant tv screen. I was in my nursery the other day and a flock of 20 landed and chatted not 5′ over my head, it was magical.

    I always love looking at your posts, they are so creative & inspirational!
    I am addicted to purchasing plates for every occasion but my problem is storage! I have them in bins in closets, under beds , attic etc. so I’m curious where do you store your lovely finds & also when you are in Home Goods or wherever how many plates do you usually purchase? I love the William Sonoma charges on this post, do you buy 2, 4 6 ? How do you usually decide?

    Thank you,
    Mary S.

      Hi Mary, Dishaholics unite! I have dishes stored in cabinets and under the bed too :) We added a wall of cabinets in the garage a few years ago that house most of my dinnerware. When I shop these days I try to limit myself to sets of 4 salad plates for the holidays or seasons and sometimes I only buy twos. ♥

    I followed Lynch Creek Wreaths on Facebook. I am moving slow this year with decorating but I do have one artificial wreath on the front door and one natural wreath on the back door but it doesn’t look nearly as nice as Lynch Creek Wreaths! I also have some lights around the house and one tall pencil Christmas tree in the house.
