However, dinner is the pinnacle of the Christmas celebration (at least for us, adults), and the preparations for it can be quite a challenge, from the moment you decide on the decoration to how you are going to set up the table. We have come with tips for you to get inspired and add your touch of creativity to commemoration table.
You can stick with the traditional colors - red, green and gold, or, depending on the style you chose, you can dare to do something different and innovate with a combination of colors such as silver and black, red and brown, blue and gold.
Those who chose a clean decoration should invest on white, with details in any of the above-mentioned colors.
A few colors must be avoided like orange, pink and yellow.
Accessories such as candlesticks, candle holders, arrangements and ribbons on napkins add elegance to any table, doesn’t matter the style. But be careful with the size of the arrangement in order not to disturb the flow of conversation among the guests.
As far as candles, for the table you should avoid the aromatic ones, since they may mess up with the food served.
There is no problem using flowers at the table but if you already have a centerpiece arrangement they are dispensable.
Tablecloth and Dining Set
Choose a very discreet and beautiful tablecloth without vibrant or exaggerated prints. To avoid any mistake, go with a plain white one.
The dishware should harmonize with the whole decor scheme. White ceramic or porcelain dishes are always a good choice. Red wine glasses and golden items are perfect with almost any style and they bring out the best of Christmas spirit.
Don’t Be Shy with the Theme Chosen:
