Beautiful Holiday Tablescape Ideas

We are dashing through the web, loading our browser’s cache,
over the blogs we go, pinning all the way….
to bring you beautiful holiday tablescapes!

These memorable centerpieces will set the tone for your holiday festivities and draw “Cheers!” from your guests.

To decorate like a pro, we recommend starting with a theme and then creating your tablescape around that concept focusing on one or two colors. If you want to add a third hue, do so sparingly so the table doesn’t get too busy.

Presenting presents! For an easy, yet impactful holiday tablescape, wrap boxes with moss, beautiful ribbon, metallic wrapping paper — your only limit is your imagination! Small presents for each setting also serve double duty: impactful decor and a thoughtful gifts for your guests to remember the occasion. Wine charms, ornaments, hot chocolate or USB thumb drives loaded with your favorite holiday tunes are just a few ideas for favors.

Bright idea: Transform your existing light fixture to add whimsy or drama to your table. Ornaments, ribbon and fishing line are all you need to achieve these looks:

Branch out this season! To add height to your display, spray paint branches and hang them overhead with jute rope from removable adhesive hooks on the ceiling. Or arrange branches in vases and decorate with glass icicles, lightweight ornaments or small frames with family photos.

A stop at Candy Cane Lane. The traditional red and white angular stripes are the perfect source for tablescape inspiration. Incorporated candy canes or sticks into your centerpiece or a simple wide ribbon down the middle of your table.
