Have yourself a merry little Christmas with these tables!
With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to put some thought into your seasonal tabletop decorations! Thankfully, the holiday gives us plenty to use as inspiration: wreaths, nutcrackers, snowflakes, candy canes, and ornaments! While you’re trimming the tree, don’t forget to trim your table: your dinner guests are gonna love it!
Ornaments aren’t just for trees!
How’s this for an easy, holiday-appropriate look? If you’ve got a chandelier above your dining table, try hanging a few shimmery ornaments from it! Weave some ribbon around the chandelier and tuck in some greenery and you’re all set!
Cranberries don’t stop at Thanksgiving!
I love easy and inexpensive holiday decorations! To recreate this gorgeous idea, fill up a line of mason jars with cranberries and sugar, then drop in a few tea lights to make a colorful display for your Christmas table. And if any branches fall off your Christmas tree, stuff them into the jar for a final layer and a fragrant scent.
Dreaming of a white Christmas?
I absolutely adore this unique table setting! The tablescape takes winter-white to the next level. Gather your best silver and white ornaments, a few white trees, and white cake stands for an elegant look. Bonus points for using books as placemats, simple wreaths as chargers, and pears for a pop of red!
Put your presents on the table!
Wrap a small gift for every guest and stack it on top of your place setting. ‘Tis the season for giving thanks, and what better way to thank your friends and family than welcoming them to the table with a bright, shiny bow!
Make clever place cards!
This is such a cute way to make personalized place settings: tie a few candy canes together with ribbon and set them up to hold your place cards. Guests will be delighted with the presentation, and they’ll go home with a few candy canes in their pockets!
Garland makes the best table runner
Buy some extra branches when you’re shopping for a Christmas tree and tie them up with floral wire. Perfectly placed pinecones, candles, and ornaments round out the runner for a very merry design.
Candy cane fantasy!
Use the holiday’s most iconic candy as inspiration and theme your entire table in red and white. The ever-famous Elf on a Shelf is a clever addition to any table, making sure your guests all eat their vegetables before getting dessert!
