If you are hosting this years family Christmas dinner or holiday party you may want to start planning your dining table centerpiece and decorations. There are so many different ways to dress up your table that it can be overwhelming to figure out a single theme. Its hard not to grab everything that catches your eye but its a good idea to plan your tablescape in advance for a well put together and stunning centerpiece.

Tablescape Inspiration

Gilded Trees

These glittered candle trees create a magical forest centerpiece. A warm enchanting glow is achieved by surrounding the centerpiece with more lit candles. The same colours are spread across the table with matching silver and gold plates and green chargers and coasters.

Purple and Silver

Follow a colour scheme that you put throughout your table with coloured glasses, dishes and ornaments. Plum purple and silver are displayed on this formal yet delicate tablescape.

Candles and Candy Canes

Use traditional colours and elements for a warm and welcoming centerpiece. Most people can relate to a red and green Christmas so they will feel comfortable and be able to unwind. Candy canes adorn the glowing candles for a fun and youthful centerpiece.

Keep it Simple

Extravagant tablescapes can get cluttered quite easily especially when your guests are eating and drinking. Consider a simpler display of ornament balls inside a decorative bowl surrounded by candles. A smaller display can also be easily moved if need be.

Not Sure What to Do

If you are stumped and not sure what to do you can always fall back on a fresh vase of flowers or a bowl of fruit. Choose colours that match other Christmas decorations throughout your home.

Word of the Day: Table Setting Charger

Larger decorative plates used to dress up dinner tables that are not used for food.  They act as a base on which food bearing dishes are placed.

Happy Decorating!
