Ideas for a Festive Holiday Table Setting
Setting the scene for your holiday event doesn’t have to take a lot of money or effort. All you really need is a little imagination and a few items you already have at home.
Start by picking a theme. Make a list of items that will fit with the theme. For example, for a winter theme, acorns, pine cones, holly branches, berries, and other nature finds make perfect decorations. Use a tablecloth or placemats in a color that complements your theme.
For an eye-catching centerpiece, use a glass cylinder and fill them with items that go with your theme. Twigs and berries may work for a nature theme; candy canes and peppermints for a candy theme. A candy cane bouquet makes a whimsical centerpiece. Add glitter to make everything sparkle.
Don’t worry about everything being perfectly matched. It can be contemporary or eclectic to use table settings that don’t match. The trick is use complementary colors and to make your setting look intentional.
