It is Thanksgiving week and we have family and friends on our minds. As well as food, football and fun, of course! After the families disperse, it is time to start planning for Christmas dinners and events. One beautiful thing about decorating for the holidays is the ability to create a unique table setting that captures your style. Don’t know your style? That’s ok, read on and let’s find it!
Modern + Glitz
Create these looks by using a table cloth, plates and napkins with a modern pattern. Create clean lines with simple accessories. Use golds and silvers to add a pop to the simplicity. Using the ornaments in holiday dishes adds the feature of ‘holiday setting’. This setting is also versatile and can be used year ’round.
Colorful + Kid Friendly
Create a colorful and playful setting for the little ones in your life! Children love the magic of Christmas, so let them be young and create a space that both adults and children will love. To achieve this look, use fun colored ornaments, wrapping paper and ribbon. Fill an accent bowl with ornaments add them to garland for an extra pop! Wrap your bowls, plates and napkins in ribbon to create a ‘present’ for your guests. Be playful this holiday season!
Traditional + Classic
Have a more traditional event? That’s ok! Keep things classy like the setting below. Use one solid color and add a pop of gold or silver. The red and gold decor below is a classic combo that has stood the test of time. Fresh flowers in the table add a warm, freshness perfect for the holidays. Use a classic table cloth and China or crystal. Lastly, create a special treat with a small present on each plate, either empty or filled with chocolates! Spoil your guests this holiday season with beauty.
Very trendy right now is the rustic look. This look is perfect to achieve the warm + cozy cabin feeling! Use a plaid runner or table cloth complete with a natural centerpiece. Like below, a few logs or pine creates a rustic feel. Add burlap and pine cones paired with deer place card holders or silhouettes for an added feature. Dress this look up with golds and silvers for a more classic look.
Now matter your style, by following a few of these ideas, you are sure to impress those guests this holiday season! Don’t be afraid to mix and match different elements. For example, adding those gold and silver pops can dress up a table scape with a few simple items.
