As the time of holidays and celebrations approaches, our thoughts focus more and more on the decoration of the table, which must be perfect, as well as the food we prepare for our loved ones. This holiday season, impress your guests with a uniquely decorated table. BesserMe has put together 7 tips to help you decorate the perfect table.
First, determine the color palette
You don’t have to limit yourself to red or green, as these are the traditional colors of the New Year and Christmas vacations. Choose the colors you like and with a few accessories, your decoration will get a New Year’s look. If you limit yourself to a few colors or different shades of the same color, you will achieve the effect of wholeness more easily.
Cloth napkins for glamour on the table
Paper napkins are for everyday use. Cloth napkins help make this occasion a special time. They give a sense of luxury and every time you wash them, you will remember the beautiful moments spent together with your friends and family at the holiday table.
Uses natural elements for decoration
Pinecones are perfect for this time, but you can also use dried flowers or branches of some evergreen trees. Put a small branch on each plate or put them all in a vase on the table. It’s free, looks great, brings the warmth of nature to your table and adds a festive spirit.
Prepare gifts for guests
Everyone will be happy to receive a gift and a small token of attention from you as host. Have your children make an ornament with beads – for example, a star, a heart or a Christmas tree – and the guests can take it home as a souvenir.
Decorate the outdoor area
Weather permitting, invite guests to relax in the garden or on the patio. Hot drinks and delicious snacks will keep you warm and your kids will surely enjoy their time outside. Try to decorate the outdoor area in a festive way – play with lights and decorations that you associate with the holidays and are designed for the outdoors.
Uses a tablecloth with Christmas prints
The tablecloth is decorative and can look very elegant or traditional. You can use more than one or just one along the entire table. Fill the center of the table with other decorations, such as candles or a wreath.
Small light sources create a more intimate atmosphere than chandeliers, but make sure your guests can actually see what’s on their plate. Combine lighting and decorations in one – replace the floor lamp with a Christmas tree. With this added light magic, your table is ready to enchant guests!
We hope you enjoy these decorating tips and enjoy the holidays with your loved ones.
