After cooking a feast for Christmas dinner, we all want our tablescape to look its best. Luckily, a hefty investment of time or resources is not necessary to make it festive and complete.
Here are a few simple ideas to get your table ready to host your family or guests for the holidays.
4 Tips for a Christmas Tablescape
:: Use a large focal centerpiece, such as a floral arrangement and adorn with candles. (Tip: take into consideration the height of your arrangement, so your guests can enjoy conversations across the table)
:: Think beyond the fine china when setting the table this holiday season. Use over-sized chargers and mix patterns and styles in a similar color family to present an ornate setting.
:: Layer. Simply gather and combine items from around your home. Begin with a table cloth as the base, add items such as decorative pieces or pine cones, ceramic ornaments or tea lights. Use items of different heights to add variety. Think outside the box. A sconce may be intended for a candle, but why not put a twist on things? Fill them with cranberries or nuts.
:: Consider a table for children. Add a whimsical touch, such as bright, lively colors or maybe a fun place card holder. Giving them their own special place is sure to bring smiles!
Whether your style is traditional or chic, have fun with it! And let your table reflect you.
