Cone Decoration Table – It’s really starting to feel like fall and winter is creeping up on us. We have already had several snow showers and most of the leaves are done. All of this makes me even more excited for the holiday season. Today I’m sharing some of the first Christmas table settings for the events I have planned over the holidays. This simple woodland and pinecone Christmas table setting was super easy to make and will be perfect for the think and drink function I’m hosting tomorrow.
You’re probably thinking… what the heck is “think and drink”?! This year, I am once again hosting the Morgan Adams Foundation Concours d’Elegance event to raise money for pediatric cancer research. It has been a tradition in the past for the Executive Committee to hold functions for cocktail collaboration and brainstorming (“think and drink”). On Thursday I will be hosting our auction team to do just that!
Cone Decoration Table
Whenever you can, I always recommend setting up your table ahead of time for several reasons. One… no need for last minute hassle. Two… you can make sure you have everything you need to complete the look you want. Three… if you work your table ahead, you can focus on what you’re serving before your event. Practice…less stress before the meeting. I’m less stressed than ever!
Pine Cone Decor
All of my table settings start with inspiration. Last week I attended a Holiday Open House at one of my favorite local stores…t is for table (they have one location here and two in Florida). I found these gorgeous Pine Bough linen napkins that I just had to bring home!
They are very classic and can be used in many different ways to decorate your holiday table. I’m sure you’ll see them again in my future table settings. Pine trees and pine cones remind me of winter, and luckily for us, we have hundreds of them in our yard every year. Bonus!
You may have seen me use table covers before. They are great to reuse for the look I was trying to achieve. I love using runners instead of diapers not only to clear things up but also save you a bit of money if you buy them wisely. They are less than $10 each.

After deciding to use pine cones, I pulled out this large faux Christmas garland that I’ve had for years. She already had little pine cones spread over the garland so it was perfect. Plus, I love the little snow crystals on the ends of the pine needles for a special touch!
Since we actually had a meeting, I felt it was important to keep the centerpiece low. I simply folded the garland in a wavy pattern so I could easily fit a couple of hurricanes and a few other elements.
Part of what made this centerpiece so easy was that I only used a few items to make it. Garland, pine cones, rattan ornament balls, a cake dome filled with pine cones and some candles.

For the focal point, I simply filled my glass cake dome with pine cones from my backyard… super easy and organic!
To finish off the place settings, I added these gorgeous acorn ornaments from Hobby Lobby for my team to take home for their trees. I am deeply grateful for all the hard work of our auction committee!
I used my Coventry stoneware salad plates to break up the white plates and then layered the square white bowls on top. Voila!
Pine Cone Table Decorations
Huge sugar pine cones at the ends of the centerpiece added a little drama to the table decoration and finished things off nicely.
Good luck tomorrow night as we think and drink to help raise more money for pediatric cancer research! I hope you enjoyed the details of this easy woodland and pine cone Christmas table setting. What’s your favorite part?! I would love to hear your feedback. This is a fun, beautiful and surprisingly easy project that makes a great table decoration. You can make it your decor for year-round use or you can choose colors that are holiday themed. My living room has teal, lime green and white, so I chose a paint that would work well with my furniture and decor.
I was happy to do it and it was almost instant gratification. The project only takes 20-30 minutes to complete. You can’t beat that!

I have three scrub pine trees in my yard that produce tons of pine needles and lots of pine cones. Every time we get high winds, my driveway and lawn are covered. I use pine needles as mulch and when I use them up I put them in a bag and give them to my friends for their garden.
I used pine cones as buffers for the areas where the rain comes from the roof. You can only use so many pine cones for this, so I was trying to think of other ways to use them. So this is a project I came up with – and I really like it.
First, and perhaps most importantly, do it outside! When you use spray paint, it should be in a well-ventilated area. I also recommend not trying to do this when it’s windy outside or the spray paint will just mess everything up.

When picking pine cones, look for ones that are undamaged and fully opened. Clean up any stray seeds, pine needles and cobwebs (I’ve had a few with small spiders too) before you spray paint them as the paint will make any dirt stand out more.
I used an old, broken pot to hold the pine cones and paint, but you could put newspaper down to keep the paint from getting everywhere. Then I opened the can of spray paint (they had a plastic seal and the nozzle had to be opened) and shook it vigorously.
Some of the dye is absorbed into the pine cones, so to get a deeper, richer color, apply a lot of dye. Start by spray painting one side of the cone and spray it from the top of the cone and then the bottom for even coverage. Wait a few seconds and then flip the cone over and repeat on the other side. Continue turning the cone until it is completely covered with paint. Handling the wet cones may get a little paint on your fingers, but just keep it tasty.

It took about 20-30 minutes for the pine cones to dry thoroughly. Place them on a clean surface, making sure not to touch each other, and allow to dry. It’s as simple as that!
I placed mine in this modern white bowl which allows the paint colors to really pop. However, if you have a glass container, this would also be a great place to add pine cones. You may also want to throw in some Christmas ball ornaments in matching colors for the holidays. For a more rustic look, place pine cones in the basket. The possibilities are truly endless – you just have to try different options to see what suits your decor.
I hope you have fun making this project! I like the results so much that I sent my mom a photo of the finished product and will be making it for her house this weekend.

When my relatives were in town for Thanksgiving, I bought some berries for the guest bedroom. They were so bright and bold that I wanted to use them again. So I created this centerpiece in just a few minutes using things I already had. And it lasted all week!
This is a great project for cutting pine cones and pine tree branches from your yard. Just add some bright berries and you have a beautiful pine table decoration that can be used on the dining table, coffee table, dresser, piano, sideboard, etc.
And if you end up collecting extra pinecones and branches, try making this easy mailbox for more holiday decorations.
