Give Your Christmas Dinner Table a Personal Touch
Have you decided on your Christmas theme for this year? What you put on the table should match what you’ll be serving, and a welcoming scheme will set the scene for sharing special times. Don’t wait until Christmas Day to decide on your Christmas theme or how you want your table laid. It’s always a good idea to know beforehand whether you will be going for a traditional or modern theme as this will help you decide on your color schemes for decorating.
Many households go with traditional schemes that often include red & green, red & gold and white & gold combinations of colors. A modern touch of Christmas can be a white and snowy scheme, but when it comes to the holidays, adding a unique, personal touch can make any gathering even more memorable and enjoyable.
Christmas dinner is a special occasion for many families and individuals across the globe. Even if you’re not hosting a big Christmas dinner party or it’s just an intimate dinner for two, you can still go all-out with Christmas table decorations and homemade DIY decor.
Check out the following simple ideas which can help you transform and add a personal touch to every part of your holiday traditions.
Natural Touch: Mix together classic holiday greens with cranberry and wood bead garlands for an extra-festive Christmas table setting idea. Keep your Christmas dinnerware simple and elegant, and let the centerpiece shine.
Centerpiece: Always keep the colors of the season in mind when setting up your table. Creating a stunning centerpiece for your table is no rocket science, and can completely transform your space. Greenery items can transform a plain piece of fabric into a mystical setting with a mix of materials (like pine and evergreen), trim sprigs to different lengths and add a few bright berries. Spaces between the sprigs create places for bottles of wine or serving dishes.
Entertainment: Set up a welcoming holiday table using dishes and wine glasses to create a neutral tablescape that’s paired up with fresh holiday greenery and berries. Choose stemmed wine glasses and oversize glass vases to add height and interest. A playful Christmas tree platter adds a touch of holiday whimsy.
Copper Christmas Table: Flickering lanterns or candles, bottle brush trees, Christmas Tinsel and vintage green dishes make this Christmas table setting idea as holiday homey as it gets. Simple white chargers and bold copper wine glasses add texture and color to the theme.
Simple Place Setting: Grain sack napkins, flocked pine, cotton balls, and white porcelain dishware are all you need to create this farmhouse Christmas table. Finish each place setting with a snowflake-shaped, a simple handwritten name card and Christmas Lights.
