Tips for creating the perfect holiday table

December 11, 2019

The holidays are right around the corner! If you’re hosting this year, we want to help you create the perfect holiday table for your meal with friends and family. Read on for our tips on decorating and organizing your holiday dinner! 

Personal touches make everyone feel special. 
Get creative with personal touches like place cards, assigned seating or little gifts at each place setting. You could even address one of your family’s holiday cards to each attendee and put it at their seat at the table. Anything addressed to the guest specifically will make them feel extra special! 

Remember to layer.
Creating layers on your table will make it feel more lush and visually appealing. Start with a linen or table runner, add chargers beneath your plates and don’t forget to take out the good china! 

Pick a color theme.
When thinking about your table design, working with neutral colors is usually easiest. Think about what tones you want to design with (warm or cool) and then choose one color to make it pop.

Flowers and candles add the final touch. 
If you’re not sure where to start with the final touches to your table, consider a simple greenery runner with a few candles down the middle of your table. The glow of candlelight always makes any meal feel elevated!
