It’s time to get the finest glasses out, give the cutlery a good clean and iron the tablecloth. What special things do you like to do to prepare the table for Christmas dinner?
Here’s a singing collection of Christmas decor ideas for your table, from runners to placemats and everything pine cone in between.
These totally Swoonworthy table settings use a mix of plates but they all work together beautifully. When you’re looking to have some variety with your dinnerware sets, it’s super smart to pick a color theme that goes all the way through your dishware collection. That means you can pick different plates, dishes and bowls and they can be used together easily whatever the time of year.
Going down the dark and sophisticated route? Subtle hints of gold, hanging decorations and a monochrome table setting make for a festive celebration with enough room for turkey on the table.
Bundled cinnamon sticks, a firm favorite this year with table setting ideas. The smell of fir cuttings and cinnamon are the little kicks that bump up your Christmas decorations to super cozy level.
We all enjoy unwrapping presents! The Interiors Addict has been wrapping up the serving plates for more opening fun. Use ribbons that go with the table settings and tie gift tags into the ribbons wrapped around plates to show place settings. What a fun way to start the meal!
Red, white and holly fun at the Bright Bazaar blog, as well as these super cute folded napkins shaped into mini Christmas trees.
Cake stands are for more than just cakes, as elegantly exhibited in this red and white table setting. Using little gift boxes, reindeer and snowflake themed glass charms, and handsome heart hot plate holders the table is full of affection and love for the season.
Christmas decor isn’t complete without hanging a few baubles. Hang ornaments from above in a non-intrusive fashion, with a makeshift Christmas chandelier. String a few fairy lights too for gentle illumination.
A sprig of green from the garden, and an ornament or two, immediately set the scene. You don’t need to go crazy stocking up on items to make the perfect table setting. Look in your cupboards for items as red as a robin’s breast, white like the snow and a spritz of green like the Christmas tree.
This fun eclectic and modern mix uses lots of colors and items from around the house. The holographic cutlery is a fantastic way to incorporate all the blues, purples and greens found in the table setting. The unusual color combo really makes this meal a stand-out success!
Minimal and sleek in style, this table setting shows once again you don’t have to go overboard if you’re not comfortable with it. These mini wreaths are easy to make. Just wrap some branches together, and tie with a small bit of wire or string. You could use colorful ribbon for a pop of color.
Festive baubles with sprigs of rosemary are coupled with a slim but sparkly centerpiece.
Taking your meal outdoors only works in some places! But if you’re lucky enough to be able to eat outside for your Christmas lunch, take note from this checkerboard and cheeseboard collection.
Floating candles for festive delight. I like the simple color combos, and once again you have a centrepiece for the table that also smells great.
Let pink pop. Traditional colors aren’t always a necessity if you’re into a table that’s pink and pretty. I like the simple cardboard cut out trees in the middle that are easy to assemble and re-use for other paper projects.
Mini trees made with a hot glue gun! Perfect for your Christmas vignette. Use a few toys to bring the story to life.
Stars and pine cones. Keeping wood and natural elements to the table, you can scatter a few stars along. When using a linen tablecloth like this, you don’t need to worry too much about ironing out the creases either as it looks quite charming layered with chopping boards and twigs.
Or why not go all out? This pheasant centerpiece has all the frills and feathers! Perfect for an ornate Christmas spread that calls to mind a walk in the woods.
