How to create an elegant Christmas table setting using my “10 Christmas Table Decorating Ideas.” Simple tips to a beautiful festive table.
The holidays are a wonderful time for family gatherings, and there’s no better way to celebrate than by creating a beautiful holiday table setting.
Here are some simple tips on how to set a festive table that will impress everyone at the party.
1. Create a Festive Centerpiece with Greenery and Candles
A centerpiece is one of the first things people see when they enter a room, so it should make a statement. Choose a large vase filled with fresh greens or artificial ones and place it near the door. Add a few small white candles to add warmth and light.
Or for example, if you’re serving a buffet style dinner, place the main dishes around the edge of the table, while placing the appetizers in the middle.
If you’re having a seated dinner, put the main course in the center of the table and surround it with smaller plates of appetizers.
2. Add a Seasonal Touch by Adding Pinecones or Berries
To keep the centerpieces simple, use only two or three items. If you choose more than three, arrange them in a circle or pyramid shape.
Create a truly elegant table setting by adding a few touches of nature. For example, place pinecones around the edge of the table, or artificial pinecones. Scatter dried berries throughout the centerpieces.
3. Include a Small Tree as Part of the Decor
A centerpiece is one of the most important parts of the table setting. You want something that stands out from the rest of the decorations but doesn’t overpower them.
If you’re looking for inspiration, consider adding a small tree to the center of the table. “A small tree adds height and texture to the table,” says Martha Stewart. “It makes the room feel cozy and welcoming.”
4. Hang Stockings from the Ceiling
When decorating your home for the holidays, consider hanging stockings from the ceiling instead of placing them on the floor. Stockings are a fun and unique way to add a little whimsy to your holiday decorations. This simple trick makes the room feel more Christmassy.
You can hang them from the ceiling using clothespins or tape or use a hook and string to attach them to the wall. If you’re looking for something a bit more elegant, try hanging stockings from the chandelier.
5. Set up a Wreath on the Door
Hang a wreath on the front door to make it feel festive. You can use any type of wreath, but we recommend getting one with a ribbon bow so you can easily remove it when the holiday season ends.
If you’re hosting a holiday dinner party, consider decorating your dining room table with a wreath. A wreath adds a touch of elegance to the table and makes it look extra special.
You can find wreaths at most craft stores, and if you want to get creative, you can use ribbon, twine, or other materials to create a unique design.
7. Simple and Elegant Place Settings
Mix in solid-colored placemats in these fun colors such as red, blue, and green, and build your Christmas theme from there.
