It is an exciting prospect. Hosting a dinner party or having he family around for Christmas dinner. You’ll get the chance to decorate the table whether for Christmas, a dinner party or even Mothers Day with a floral decoration. A beautifully decorated table with table cloths, decorations and scented candles can make entertaining so enjoyable.
Let’s look at some ideas for decorating your table. Today we’ll cover the Christmas table.
Reds are typically the colour associated with Christmas. You can add some different colours and feels to your Xmas colour palette too. Golds, whites and or adding other touches such as pinecones can make that really authentic yule time look. Everything can be themed or carefully picked to match and enhance your theme,
Floral table runners, hanging decorations on the backs of chairs, you can even gather bundles of cinnamon sticks, tie them with Christmas ribbon and place them strategically in the table. If you are creative you can also experiment with how you present your table napkins.
You can also use the seasonal weather to inspire you. The Autumn and Winter months can provide some very rich colours. These colours won’t be as strong as your Christmas reds but can provide a subtle touch of elegance. There is really no limit on how creative you can be. You can either buy or collect logs from outside, clean them up and have them as part of your table theme. Oranges can also be added into the colour scheme and the citrous smells can certainly add to the Christmas atmosphere.
A gothic table theme can also work wonders. Tall celtic looking wine glasses and candelabras mixed with purples and violets can make a truly stunning and unique theme for that family Christmas day.
There are some many areas that you can decorate. Creating gorgeous little name tags in order to co-ordinate where people will sit to the lighting of subtly place incense sticks that slowly burn and release a wonderful yuletide aroma.
You have so many options. Get creative and don’t forget how flowers can really make your table on Christmas day the talk of the family.
