Beautiful Flower Centerpiece
You need to have one statement piece that really inspires the rest of your table. This year, try a Christmas centerpiece that is not only beautiful, but also highlights the top flowers for Christmas. It’s will complement your holiday decor perfectly and be wonderful addition to the table, without being overwhelming in scent or height. If you want to make your own flower centerpiece, be sure to grab some red roses, poinsettias, and carnations. These are great choices because they come in festive colors and are safe choices for people suffering from allergies. The last thing you want is for someone to be miserable while they are eating.
A Festive Runner
Once you have chosen your color theme and flowers, get a table runner to start the decorating. It might not seem important, but it turns your everyday table into a a holiday table. You can go the classic route with festive solids or pull in a rustic theme with a plaid or checkered runner. You’ll be layering over your runner with dishes, food, and drinks so have a little fun with what you decide to pick. It’s the perfect time to mix and match.
Pops of Holiday Decoration
Christmas ornaments aren’t just meant to be on a tree. In fact they add just the right pop of color and cheer to a table. You can place a bunch or ornaments in a clear jar or bowl and place that on the table, or you can just make little piles on your ornaments. As long as you don’t have any little children that are going to be grabbing at things, scattering the ornaments around the table ties in the theme on your tree perfectly to dinner. If you want to go the extra mile, get some glitter ornaments and pair them with some candles. Elegance doesn’t have to be hard to obtain!
