It’s that time of the year to bring out the china, silver, and crystal to dress up your dinner table with your favorite pieces to receive family and friends into the warmth of your home to celebrate the holiday season. Christmas is truly the most magical time of the year! It’s my favorite season!
If you are looking for Christmas table setting inspiration, here are some awesome ideas and tips that would help you bring some added wow factor to your table setting and entertain with style this Christmas:
START BY PICKING A THEME AND A COLOR SCHEME FOR YOUR TABLE
Having a theme and a defined color scheme makes the table look extra special and adds a polish and sophisticated look.
Opt for non-traditional colors. Try something new like a fabric in malachite and hot pink peonies with white and black plates.
Embrace metallic shades of gold and silver to create a lavish sensibility. It’s the little details that make this Christmas table setting extra special and conveys an instant feeling of luxury.
Set a playful scene with a Christmas theme inspired by primary colors.
For a Scandinavian look, team red and white with natural touches.
Keep it neutral. You don’t have to go bold to make a statement. This classic dining room with a simple garland is insanely chic.
ADD AN UNEXPECTED ELEMENT TO YOUR DECOR SCHEME TO GIVE IT YOUR OWN PERSONALITY
This stunning holiday table is inspired by Ann Getty’s love for Chinoiserie chic style.
A mix of green, pink, and red with lettuce ware and flamingos definitely creates a fabulously and unique unexpected look.
The chandelier is the ideal locale for a garland of evergreen for a special and surprising dramatic touch.
ENSURE YOUR TABLE IS THE CENTER OF ATTENTION WITH A STRIKING CENTERPIECE
Bring out those blue and white ginger jars and use them as centerpieces and pair them with the gold-rimmed dinnerware and a simple striped tablecloth.
The blue-and-white theme keeps the table looking clean and streamlined, add colorful flowers for vibrancy and playfulness.
“The most beautiful tablescapes are the ones that are beautifully displayed so that each setting is equally spaced around the table.” ~ Myka Meier, Director of the Beaumont Etiquette School.

Enjoy setting your table for one of the most memorable meals of the year. May the spirit of this magical season be with you!
