It’s the time of year where you are starting to plan your holiday gathering down to the smallest details. You are considering seating arrangements, wines, place settings and desserts. Most of your guest’s time will be spent around the table to share a meal. Regardless of your table type, you will want a tabletop that has festivity and style combined into one.
Candles are a simple, festive and easy tabletop accent. They bring a little bit of extra sparkle to the table and can burn all night. They will make your guest’s pictures look beautiful with small twinkling lights in the background and make it feel a little more special and cozy in your event space.
Use Wintertime Foliage
Many of the most popular and beautiful tabletop pieces come from fresh supplies found in your very own backyard. Pine cones, sprigs of evergreen trees and winter berries all make for a beautiful winter look. Nothing says festive like a small part of a Christmas tree on your table.
By using foliage, you could skip on the flowers, and you can be sure guests can see each other across the table without leaning around or peeking over a flowery centerpiece. If flowers are a must-have, you can put small seasonal flowers in vases along the table or just scatter festive flower tops, such as poinsettias, on the table.
Re-Purpose Your Decorations
Ornaments and other small home decor trinkets can be utilized as tabletop pieces. Small bells and the occasional ball can bring in sparkle and the right color for your festive holiday table. They can be strewn about the table or placed precisely around centerpieces.
Place settings are the most important part of your table because they are directly in front of your guests. Fine china looks beautiful on a holiday table, especially when it is paired with a colorful charger as a backdrop of your guest’s plate. When you place crisp clean linen napkins with beautiful napkin rings atop your plates, all you need is some calligraphy place cards to top off the perfectly polished and festive look.
