The Number One Tip For Creating a Beautiful Christmas Table Decor
You can make your table decorations for Christmas as simple or as elaborate as you wish. However, there is one tip to creating Christmas table decor that you should always follow.
Follow this tip and you will make your Christmas table decoration way more inviting while at the same time making the job so much easier for you.
Just what is this powerful tip? Well, you just have to decide on a design theme and a specific color theme and then stick with it.
What colors do you like to use at Christmas? The old stand-bys of red, green, gold, while and silver are still used by those who just love the Christmas season.
If you are in the mood for a wintery look then you could use just white, blue and light shades of purple. Include some candles, little snowmen, some form of snowflakes and a few strands of snowy white garland.
Maybe you have a color scheme in your home that you would like to play off of. Use those colors in decorations of ribbons, napkins, candles, beads, etc. Then add a touch of winter greenery or a small Christmas tree centerpiece to solidify the look.
Laying a small Christmas wreath in the center of the table can be the beginning of your table decor. Decorate it with any object that fits in with your theme. If nothing comes to mind then just use ribbons and bows in colors that fit in with your color theme. You can sit a large candle inside the wreath that of course fits in with your color theme. If you wish to have a lighted candle then you might want to place it in a glass container to avoid having a really lively Christmas party because of fire.
Some other centerpiece ideas are hurricane lanterns in a row down the center of the table or stemware filled with berries, glass marbles or colorful beads. You might add to this some Christmas bells. Place them around the hurricane lanterns or stemware. Long strands of ribbon can be laid out in such a manner as to flow through and around the centerpiece decorations.
If there will be a lot of children at the dinner table then you might want to have some small toy trucks, cars, trains, etc. as part of your table decorations.
You will want to continue your theme with your table napkins. For instance, use two napkins of different colors. Roll them separately and tie them together with a colorful ribbon. You might also chose to attach a small bell to the ribbon. Now, carefully place your napkins arrangement in the center of each plate. Your bells on the napkins will blend in with the bells in the center of the table. You can expand the theme by tying some of the bells to the back of the chairs, to doorknobs or even hang some from the dining room chandelier.
As you can see the idea here is to stick with your color theme and design theme throughout your decorations of the Christmas table. This way your Christmas table will go from ho-hum to spectacular, wowing your special guests.
