Do you plan to host Christmas dinner? If you are hosting, then it’s time to make sure you are all set for your tablescape. It is important to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere to welcome your guests. Today, we are sharing some Christmas tablescape ideas that will inspire you to create a beautiful Christmas tablescape.
Choose the right tablecloth
Creating a fun, fresh table decoration should be started from choosing the right tablecloth. There are plenty of options when shopping for tablecloth but don’t let it overwhelm you. Find the right length for your table, and opt for neutral colored or textured materials.
White linen is an all time favorite fabric. It’s comfortable, and suits any season or any occasion.
Make sure you iron your linen tablecloth before you apply it on the table. You can see that a neutral colored tablecloth allows the colors of the decorative items to look more pop.
Since it is Christmas, plaid linen can be a great choice too. Opt for red to bring a traditional feel in your tablescape.
If you like, you can layer your tablecloth with a table runner. Again, plaid can be a great accent.
Make an eye-catching centerpiece
When you are done preparing the table with linens, now it’s time to set up the centerpiece. A centerpiece will add mood to any holiday table setting. Also, a good centerpiece should capture the beauty of the season. Therefore, consider adding winter accent to your centerpiece. You can incorporate pine leaves, pinecones, red berries, or winter flowers. Be creative, but remember to keep it low and lean. You don’t want your dining table to look crowded.
Create a fresh and natural centerpiece using evergreens with pinecone accent, add ornaments in the same color scheme with the tablecloth. This makes for a festive traditional Christmas tablescape.
For a minimalist yet elegant tablescape, you can skip the tablecloth and create a pine evergreen table runner instead. This centerpiece looks perfect surrounded by black and gold cutlery.
If you expect something more unique, large bells centerpiece can be your choice.
Mini Christmas trees and colorful ball ornaments that fill a wooden crate make for an adorable classic centerpiece. This is suitable for a small farmhouse type dining table.
Add decorative items
Adding decorative items will give your tablescape a personal touch like no other. Use items that have a common theme or personal meaning such as figurines, unusual napkin rings, or Christmas ornaments.
The Nutcracker and some wired Christmas trees, make for the best complement for this traditional centerpiece.
You can also decorate the plate with folded napkin tied with a striped ribbon. Add green and berry accent to make it look prettier.
We hope the ideas inspires you to create a beautiful and cozy tablescape and make your next dinner party memorable.
