How to Create the Perfect Holiday Party Tablescape

One of my favorite things to help clients with during the holidays is to create a festive holiday tablescape for their family gatherings or winter celebrations. Many consider creating a decorative holiday party tablescape is truly an art form  with an ultimate goal of wowing your guests. While many people spend a lot of money on professional floral displays and expensive decor, they’re not required to have a beautiful table. You can pull together a variety of things you already own to transform your empty dinner table into a main, eye-catching focal point for your gathering. To help kickstart your imagination, we’ve pulled together a few ideas to inspire you.

If you decorate your table for the holidays, would you please post a picture on our Facebook page? I’d love to see your creativity and your personal touches.

Here are Five Creative Holiday Party Tablescape Ideas

1. Use Festive Tableware – Instead of loading the table with decor, select beautiful plates and a simple napkin ring for each place setting. A few candles for lighting and a crisp tablecloth is beautiful and allows plenty of space on the table for food. Sometimes, simple is better when it comes to your holiday tablescape.

2. Create a Color Scheme – Select a simple color scheme to simplify your table with a sleek, minimalist look for your tablescape. If you want modern and chic, try white and gold together. If you want something more Christmasy, stick with red and green. Festive with a touch of winter looks great with blue and white or blue and silver. We love this look of red and white. Clean, simple, very festive, and easy to pull together.

 3. Bottle Decor – At my house this time of year, we’re frequently emptying wine bottles. Who needs a refill? I digress. Consider using empty wine bottles as vases for floral picks or winter greenery, holiday-ready candleholders for your festive tapers (just soak off the label first), or for the DIY’er, grab some glitter spray paint and spray bottles of different shapes and sizes to create a unique tablescape center piece.

4. Bring The Outdoors In – Consider incorporating nature into your tablescape by using pine cones, simple branches, or seasonal flowers and berries into your design. Keep these items off the dinner plates and in the center of the table. If you want a little sparkle, add a touch of spray glitter to these items.

5. Wrapping Paper Napkin Rings – This is more for the DIY crafter – with a touch of mod podge, cut wrapping paper tubes into 1 – 1.5” sections using a bread knife. Cut a scrap of wrapping paper so it will fit around the tube. Brush the modge podge  onto the roll and immediately wrap the paper around the tube. Next, apply another top coat of glue and let dry. This is a great craft idea to do with your kids. While you’re at it, have them help create the entire tablescape.
