Setting a Christmas table is a joyous job, but one we want to get right. After all, it’s the biggest meal of the year – an important time where many of us get together with friends and family, so you’ll want your Christmas table decoration ideas to be just as special as the moment itself. From Christmas place settings to simple table decor and flower arrangements, there are many ways you can create a Christmas table to be proud of. Gold, reed, green and blue are the main colors, but the most important thing is to choose elegance and style. Be faithful to yourself and remember: now nothing is too much or too bold. If you want to be perfect and set a super gorgeous table, then star early. By preparing your table early it allows you more time to think about an overhead display, like these hanging paper decorations, or dressing the shelves and surfaces in the room to create a beautiful ambience.
When you choose a theme for your table, you can really do as much or as little as you like. It could be you simply choose one key colour to pick up in your tablecloth, napkins and table arrangement, or you may want to go all out with a specific ‘look, whether it’s nature-inspired with lots of wood and greenery, or Art Deco opulence. Welcome your loved ones to the table with a handwritten place setting. This could be as simple as a card, or you could double up and create small gifts for your guests. Candles are always the best to add: sophisticated and delicate, they will create the perfect atmosphere. Depending on the size of the table, you might already be struggling to fit on all your glasses and crockery. If that’s the case, avoid cluttering it up further with tealights and other decorations. However, it’s always worth squeezing in a Christmas table centrepiece idea. Just remember, bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better. Layering your table is key, so decide if you’re using a tablecloth or runner (or both), then pop a charger or beaded placemat for each place setting, topped with your choice of crockery and bowls.
Merry Christmas, my dear readers!
