Food, friends, and parties are a joyous and wonderful part of the Christmas season. Christmas is the time of year when large dinners and festivities reign supreme.
This is also the one special time of year that many people want to make their own dining tables look magnificent. Here are some seasonal ideas for you to use to give your own table a unique and dazzling festive appeal.
Use a tablecloth that is green or red to create the foundation for this look. Placemats should be plaids of red, green, and gold. Napkins can match the placemats or the tablecloth. You can even match them to one of the other solid colours in the napkins. The napkin rings could be gold coloured rings with a bit of mistletoe attached. Use gold chargers to anchor your place settings and make lovely pieces for this occasion.
Using a white linen cloth for your tablecloth and napkins, you can set the base for this modern look. Placemats should be black, or you might opt for a less formal feel by incorporating a black and white design scheme with them. A great table look can be achieved if you use all black dishes for the settings. Other choices include using a black or white charger and then alternate the other two colours among the place setting. Napkin rings could be made of black and white beads or silver.
Two colours that make people think of the festive season are blue and silver and you can use these to create a lovely Christmas dining table. A crisp blue cloth will be your base and you can use a runner of silver to add sparkle and flash. Choose placemats that combine a geometric design of these two colours and let your napkins match the mats. If you are unable to find matching napkins, match them to your blue cloth.
