The holidays are a time for celebration. Regardless of how many are gathered around your home this year, it’s the perfect time to dress the home up, including the holiday table. Here are four tips to help get you started with your tablescapes.
Snacks can make the perfect holiday decoration, and serve the dual purpose of ensuring that no one goes hungry between courses. Nuts, fruits and candies all make attractive decorations, as does the foil wrapped chocolate gelt for a Hanukkah gathering.
Consider the Napkin
Not only are the holidays the perfect time to break out the good cloth napkins, consider adding even more to how they look by how you choose to fold them. Here is a video on how to create an origami Christmas tree.
Blue Goes with Any Holiday
When decorating a table for Hanukkah, blue and white are the traditional choice. Blue place settings or glassware looks lovely as both accents and as the main color scheme. Blue is also a great look for Christmas. Breaking away from the traditional red and green and choosing blue and silver instead is a great way to create a festive table that is both elegant and different from the usual.
As you design your centerpieces, remember that you’re all gathered together to see each other. Keep the decorations low to the table so that sightlines remain intact.
If you’re worried that the table you currently have might look a bit lackluster underneath all of these festive decorations, fear not.
