Santa Gnomes have become very popular this holiday season and my breakfast nook table is the perfect spot for me to add some casual and festive Christmas gnome decor.
Do you have that one spot in your home that you like to keep casual and fun for the holidays? Our breakfast nook is that spot at my house. Creating a Festive Casual Christmas Table setting using Santa gnome pieces was fun and I found ways to keep it budget friendly.

Creating a festive, casual tablescape for our breakfast area is always something I have fun doing. My formal dining table is home to my Christmas China and nice tableware. The breakfast nook is the spot that I like to decorate in fun, colorful ways.
Festive and Fun Santa Gnome Tablescape
Instead of using a table cloth, I added a strip of Santa belt ribbon down the center of the table. To keep it in place, I first added a strip of double sided tape to the table and then pressed the ribbon onto the tape.
I absolutely love these Santa gnome plates. I searched for dinner plates with a gnome pattern and didn’t find ones I loved. When I spotted these salad/dessert plates at Home Goods, I knew they would look great with plain white dinner plates.
Since this is a casual spot, using paper napkins works. I don’t often use paper napkins for a tablescape but I couldn’t pass up these fun Santa gnome napkins.
How cute are these little salt and pepper shakers? This was another Home Goods find. They are a great addition to my gnome inspired Christmas table.
The idea to create a gnome themed casual Christmas table started with the fabric I used to make these fun Christmas Coasters. When I finished them, I knew I wanted to add more gnome Santa decor to the table.
While these mini stockings don’t have a gnome pattern, they still look fun as utensil holders next to each place setting. These were purchased at Dollar Tree, a two pack for $1.
The easy DIY Centerpiece I made for this table using a mini tree collar goes well with the red and white color palette of the dishes, napkins, and mini stockings.
I’m still looking for Santa gnome glass that I like, but until I find some, I’m using Dollar Tree glasses that I’ve had for several years that have a Merry and Bright pattern on them.
While I was looking for Santa gnome glasses at Marshalls recently, I spotted this fun pitcher. It needed to to come home with me! It was inexpensive and looks great on the wine rack that’s near the table.
Putting together this festive Santa spot for our breakfast nook this year has been fun! The Santa Tree along with the Santa Gnome tablescape makes this such a fun area for a casual meal.
The Santa hat chair covers can be found at lots of stores, but I found mine at Dollar Tree to keep them budget friendly. I will say that the quality of these isn’t that great which isn’t surprising since they are only $1 each. I remove them before sitting in the chairs to avoid tearing them.
