Just as quickly as Thanksgiving comes and goes, Christmas has arrived and it’s time to rework your table and bring fresh, new holiday ideas. One way to keep your Christmas table from looking the same each year is to change up the colors you use. Let’s get to decorating!
Faux snow is the most fabulous table runner for an instant Christmas statement. Baker Design Group loves to run it down the center of a table and then lightly sprinkle some over place settings as well. Such a fun winter wonderland look!
Christmas is the perfect occasion to add all kinds of Christmas elements to your place settings. Adding small, wrapped gifts to your table setting is another special element for your guests. Candy canes wrapped in bows, ornaments, picture frames, and a little bag of coffee or tea are always an unexpected treat! Here are additional table surprises to whisk your guests away…
- small wreaths between plates
- pine cones holding name cards
- a fun napkin fold like a Christmas tree
- a little gift on a stack of dishes
Using lanterns and candles gives off a beautiful Christmasy glow! A little light from a candle elevates your existing decor. For the full effect, Baker Design Group suggests running lots of candlesticks and lanterns down the center of the table for a gorgeous, favorable result. Don’t be afraid to mix elements with the candles. We suggest adding in pine cones, greenery, ornamentation, ribbon, berries, and trees.
We love the warmth that autumn and Christmas tablescapes bring. Just like the perfect necklace that completes an outfit, “accessories” on a table do the same! For more fall and Christmas inspiration, make sure you are following us on social media.
