Decorate Your Holiday Table
Are you looking for ways that you can decorate your holiday table? Choosing an appropriate holiday table decoration doesnít have to be difficult. You can make it just as festive as the rest of your home. Your guests will rave about your holiday table. You can use pine garland, candles, and Christmas ornaments to create a beautiful holiday table decoration. You could buy an artificial or fresh-flower Christmas arrangement from your local craft store or florist shop for the centerpiece of your holiday table. You could also use candles as a focal point of your holiday table decoration.
Take red or green taper or pillar candles and place them in wooden or brass candle holders, and then arrange pine garland, pine cones, and cranberries around the base. Another holiday table decoration idea for your centerpiece is to place a large, decorative bowl in the center of your table and fill it with gilded fruit and pine cones. Then you can arrange pine garland around the base of it. How about putting fresh pine garland into a large bowl and put red and gold ball ornaments on top of it? Arrange some larger pieces of pine garland around the base and put taper or pillar candles on either side of the bowl. Dim your artificial lighting in the room so that the candlelight will set the perfect mood to go with your holiday table decoration.
Start off right with the perfect tablecloth, table runner, place mats, and napkins done in holiday prints or coordinating solids. Donít use too many different prints because that will be too busy looking and will take the attention away from your beautiful holiday table decoration. Use napkin rings that reflect the holiday season. You could hand paint holiday designs onto wooden napkin rings or buy pre-decorated holiday napkin rings to complement the theme. Be sure to use your good china or special Christmas dishes for your holiday dinner. Put a small gift at every table setting, such as collectible ornaments or small sachet bags filled with homemade Christmas candy or nuts. Not only do the gifts become part of your holiday table decoration but your guests will be thrilled to find something just for them. Make sure that any foliage you use is clean before you put it on your table or near your food. If your table space is limited, you need to make your holiday table decoration small. Keep in mind that you will need to leave room for serving platters, dishes, and condiments.
Do not make your centerpiece too tall. Keep it within a reasonable height where you can still see your dinner guests without an obstructed view. Donít use scented candles in your holiday table decoration. Their smell may interfere with the delicious aromas from your holiday dinner. .
