5 Gorgeous Table Setting Ideas For Your Christmas Dinner
Beautiful table settings from stylists, bloggers, and Heart Evangelista will give you inspo for your Noche Buena and New Year's Eve parties!
It's no secret that the Christmas season is a time for endless dinner parties and family banquets. Aside from preparing tasty dishes and scrumptious treats, it's important to pay attention to your tablescape, too. Running out of ideas? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Check out these posts by bloggers, stylists, dinnerware purveyors, and a celeb for a boost of inspiration:
A Christmas set-up doesn't always have to involve red napkins or candy canes. Feel free to stick to cooler, neutral tones like blue and green, but make sure to sneak in a few metallic pieces for a festive touch.
If you're looking for a peg that exudes elegance and class, Heart Evangelista's set-up will surely suit your taste. Instead of going for the usual bright red and green, consider using deeper tones like maroon and moss for a more luxe feel.
Heart definitely knows that even if you are serving a simple snack of pizza, you can still make it into a posh meal with elegant crystal glasses and blue-and-white dinnerware.
Who says you can't use dark and moody colors during the holidays? Black never goes out of style! However, to balance out the look, remember to include pops of color through utensils or centerpiece decor. Hint: fresh blooms work best for this type of set-up.
Are you one of those people who love everything about Christmas? If so, then don't be afraid to go all out! You can go as far as getting individual wreaths and tiny gingerbread houses for each set (you can buy miniature gingerbread houses from hotel bakeshops and Jipan). Take it to the next level by frosting each house with the names of your guests (in place of name cards).
Rustic usually means cozy, homey and warm—the perfect vibe for a family get-together during Christmas. Pick out a palette made of muted tones, then complete the look with woven placemats, dried flowers and vintage dinnerware.
