Planning Your Table Christmas Decor

Updated on March 21, 2011

When it comes to table Christmas decor, many are completely clueless. Most people don't usually worry about table Christmas decor when decorating unless they host a Christmas dinner. If you are unsure on what to do with your dinner table this Christmas, use this as a guideline to help you get on your way to a decoration success.

At the holiday time you simply should not go without a table cloth on your table. A dinner table without a table cloth is not properly decorated. So, find a fabric table cloth that you think goes well with your theme idea. If you love to look festive, then pick a table cloth with Christmas trees embroidered onto it. If you want to create a more elegant look, then you might want to stick with solid colored cloths in colors of red, burgundy, green, or gold. These colors work well with the season and add class to the table decor.

Formal place settings are best during the holiday season. This is the perfect time to use that set that you never have a reason to use during the rest of the year. No matter if the set is expensive or more casual, you still should have matching place settings for your holiday table decor. Make sure you also include cloth napkins and napkin holders in your place setting. These accessories will dress your table up quickly.

The centerpiece is one of the most noticeable parts of a table, and it should be no different for the holiday season. There are many ways to create a lovely holiday centerpiece. One way is to use fruit. Fruit has a really festive feel to it due to its warm colors. You can take a large wide vase and fill it with apples, oranges, and lemons to get a holiday centerpiece for very little money. The great thing about it is that this centerpiece can also be eaten.

Another easy centerpiece idea is to take small and medium sized boxes and wrap them with coordinating paper and ribbons. After wrapping, arrange them in the center of the table in a pyramid type shape. This is adorable and really takes just a few moments to pull together. If you want, you can always have small favors for dinner guests in each box and allow them to open them after dinner.

Candles are perfect table Christmas decor. Candles, whether they are lit or not, provide a sense of calmness to the table. If you are having an evening meal, consider lighting candles for mood lighting effects. If you are lighting them, be sure to use drip-less candles or jar candles so there is no wax on your table. Make sure to use them in abundance, as the more candles you use, the better effect they will have in the decor.

When planning table Christmas decor, remember to keep it classy and elegant. If you are hosting a dinner, be sure to use the proper table cloth and place settings for your event. By choosing a great centerpiece and adding candles to the mix, you can create beautiful table Christmas decor.
