When it comes to the holidays, entertaining is important. And if you’re planning on hosting the holiday feast this Christmas for your loved ones, the table should make an impact. Creating a memorable table scape will make a statement and shows the importance of those present.
Choose a Color Theme
When choosing a color theme, take inspiration from your Christmas tree and decor or anything you have on hand. Add an accent color like silver or gold to dazzle up the tablescape.
Add Plaid Accents
Nothing says Christmas like a few plaid accents. There are many different ways to bring plaid into the mix – from a pretty plaid table runner to napkins and tablecloths. Plaid easily brings that holiday cheer into the dining room and matches well with solids and other holiday prints.
Set The Scene
Light plenty of candles before guests arrive. Maybe light a candle that embodies Christmas. The right lighting can go a long way to setting the atmosphere. Incorporating the five senses when hosting is important to immerse your guests into Christmas that will create memorable moments and last a lifetime in their minds. Put yourself into your guests’ shoes. What will they see and smell when they walk through the door? What will they feel?
Bring in the Outdoors
Bring in the outdoors by adding pinecones and some winter greenery to your tablescape. Add in some cinnamon sticks for that Christmas smell. This will definitely liven up any holiday feast.
Make sure everything is picture-perfect and each guest feels regal sitting at their seat. Assigning seats prevents that nervous feeling of finding your spot and also shows your guests that you thought of them in advance. Provide name tags that elevate their place setting.
