Heritage Series: Gullah Christmas Tablescape Inspiration

Heritage Series: Gullah Christmas Tablescape Inspiration

One of my favorite things to showcase my heritage and culture is decorating my tables. I keep 3 styled tables in my home and my favorite one to decorate is in my office. This year I chose a Gullah Christmas tablescape for my office holiday decor.

Heritage Series: Gullah Christmas Tablescape Inspiration

Add Layers for Texture: Don’t be afraid to use various shades of colors, textures, and fabrics on your table. Indigo was a large cash crop on the Sea Islands of South Carolina and Georgia coast and still remains a staple in decor in the region, all of which traces its roots to the Gullah community.

Oysters For a Centerpiece: Oysters are a huge part of Gullah cuisine and the economy. I chose these 3 oyster trees to be my centerpiece for my Gullah Christmas tablescape paired with a few oyster shaped bowls.

Jute Is Always In Style: Jute is always a great way to add decor and color to any Lowcountry or Gullah inspired table.

Candle Holders: I love a candelabra as much as the next person but for this tablescape, I wanted to pick a more casual piece and this oyster candleholder was the perfect piece.

Seafood Inspired Menu: A Gullah Christmas means lots of seafood, from oyster perloo to shrimp and grits, these Gullah staples are a perfect addition to your tablescape and holiday menu that was perfected by Gina Capers-Willis from Savannah, GA.

Desserts for Sure: After your main courses, no Gullah Christmas is complete without the sweets. Chewies are a staple in the Gullah community and the sisters behind Carolima’s are the duo behind this gorgeous display.
