If you want to create stunning Christmas table settings but are not sure how to go about it, these beautiful 50 ideas will get you inspired!
Setting the table for Christmas dinner is setting the stage for a wonderful evening with friends & family. From modern & simple to romantic & traditional, everyone loves to ooh and ahh over a beautifully set table.
Not to mention, it’s actually very fun to create Christmas table settings. You can use rich golds for a classic look or go rustic with real pine placemats. The sky is the limit when decorating your table for Christmas!
Here are some Christmas table setting tips & tricks to have the most stunning table of the season!
- Layer it. Layering table cloths with a runner and then plates on top of chargers create drama and depth from an ordinary set table.
- Pick a theme. Rustic, modern, colorful, traditional, Scandinavian, neutral, farmhouse, etc. There are so many different styles to choose from.
- Use what you got. Take a garland from here and some bottle brush trees from there and use them to decorate your table.
- Illuminate it. Candles or twinkling lights add some Christmas magic to the table.
- Have fun with place cards. Mini wreaths, gingerbread houses, wood slices, candy canes, and even ornaments add a touch of whimsy and personalization everyone will love.
- Choose an unexpected element. Gold silverware, clear plates, cloth napkins, or actual berry picks add a fun twist to a typical holiday table.
