There are many items that are indispensable when it comes to how you decorate your Christmas table. However, there are some basics that you can’t ignore. Among them, we find elements such as:

  • Table linen
  • Napkins
  • Crockery
  • Glassware
  • Centerpiece
  • Candles
  • Everything else you consider necessary

How to decorate your Christmas table?

The first thing you should ensure when you decorate your Christmas table is that it’s to your liking. If you’re going to be the host, you need to feel satisfied and comfortable with what you’ve achieved. Moreover, you need to be able to reflect that feeling to all your guests.

Among the details you should consider before buying the ornaments and accessories that you’ll need, are your chosen colors that’ll predominate. These may be the traditional mix of reds and greens or you may want to combine shades such as pinks, blues, silvers, or golds. You’ll also have to think about how you want to dress your table, what glassware you’ll use, and whether or not you’ll have a table runner.

What colors should you choose?

The colors that predominate on your table should be the same as those that govern the Christmas code for your entire home. It’s important that everything is kept in tune, especially if you enjoy decorating every inch of your home.

Let’s start with the traditional greens, reds, and golds–a beautiful combination that’s long been used during Christmas. However, following the Covid pandemic and subsequent social restrictions, this Christmas comes with even more focus and celebration.

So, if you’re looking for the opposite of tradition and want to do something new, you can opt for combinations such as pinks and silvers or blues and silvers. Either way, there are garlands in different sizes that can be useful to decorate your Christmas table. These will go very well with tablecloths, chandeliers, and table runners.

Christmas tablecloths

One of the most relevant points (after choosing the color scheme), has to do with your tablecloth. This should be in a neutral tone to help highlight the details and colors of the other accessories and items that you put on the table.

Thus, it’s advisable to use gray or white textiles with small Christmas details. If, on the other hand, you have very sober elements for your table in neutral colors, your tablecloth should be bright and attractive.

How about a patterned tablecloth?

The Christmas patterned tablecloth is a beautiful option for more sober tables. You don’t have to spend time and money on more accessories, because the pattern will do the hard work and fill the surface with color and shine.

Table arrangement

Buying a new table arrangement is optional, although, remember that Christmas should be a symbol of union where environmentally friendly options must also be considered. The desire to stand out shouldn’t cost our planet and it absolutely shouldn’t represent an expense that isn’t entirely necessary.

Why not make your own table arrangement? You can reuse ornaments from previous years or you can collect some fallen pinecones or eucalyptus branches and give them a second chance at your table. The color of this arrangement will also depend on the other elements on your table and should contrast with your tablecloth.

There are many households that have special tableware, specifically for Christmas. This is a valid option since it’s in tune with the principle of sustainability. If this encourages you, buy Christmas tableware that adapts to different types of decoration in terms of colors and shapes.

In this case, the best option will be to choose white tableware with sober details that allow you to add color through other objects. Now, if you opt for a neutral tablecloth and colorful accessories, you have the opportunity to use any tableware with bright and unique colors.

Can I combine different dish styles and designs?

Of course! However, we recommend that you carefully consider the combinations you want to make. For example, you can use a colorful small plate and a deep dish on top that has minimal decoration, or the other way around. Anything goes! Except, don’t combine two types of dishes that don’t contrast with each other.

Enjoy your Christmas table decoration!

Once you’re ready and you have everything you need, simply just enjoy decorating your Christmas table. Get ready to receive and welcome your family and friends and feel the warmth of being together again. Merry Christmas!
