11 Christmas Table Setting Tips 

Vancouver Realtor-Carmen Leal

Why do people decorate their dinner tables for Christmas? What are some of the best ways to do this? Christmas is one of the few times every year that allows us to take time to make something crafty and beautiful in terms of DIY Christmas ideas. Creating a special type of Christmas table decoration is a great way to welcome guests into your home in a loving and caring way this holiday season. Tables are one of the few places in today’s world where we gather together to share time, stories, laughter and create memories. Let's get started!

1. Start with a color scheme.

In this first place setting, red and white are used. If you limit your color palette, it’s much easier to make things look cohesive. It also helps when shopping. You can focus on “your colors” rather than get distracted by all of the holiday awesomeness.

2. Add a piece of pine.


You can use fresh pine wherever you can during the holiday season. Tie it on presents, tuck it into floral arrangements, and add a sprig or two to my table setting. It’s a free and easy way to instantly bring in beautiful texture, holiday flare, and seasonal scent.

3. Give an ornament gift.


Sometimes it’s fun to add a small gift to your table setting. Here, the paired napkins with inexpensive ornaments. The ornaments add a holiday touch, and guests can take their ornaments with them as a way to remember the celebration.

4. Embrace playful patterns.


Next table setting is embracing a seasonal pattern. Plaid and buffalo check for inspiration give a feel of stylish table. Even in various sizes and styles, it all works together to create a fun, playful look.

5. Mix vintage with new.

Here, the new and the old are combined. Doing this creates an interesting, meaningful, and personalized tablescape. It is starting with brass cups, picks up the gold on the edge of plate and then used this vintage “Merry Christmas” cardholder to corral some greens down the center of table.

6. Get creative with napkin rings.

With so many beautiful and unique napkin rings available these nowadays, it is hard to resist trying a few. If you don’t want to buy napkin rings, create your own with a cookie cutter, a mini faux wreath, or a piece of ribbon.

7. Experiment with unconventional color.

As much as everyone loves the traditional red and green of Christmas, people also like to use new and unexpected colors. It still looks festive, but it certainly stands out from the crowd. Try using your favorite color or coordinate with your existing home decor to create something outside the box.
Red and green are cool, but how about blue? This bold blue hue paired with white cotton balls gives a modern vibe to a traditional table.

9. Go Gingham

The classic white-and-black checkered pattern looks totally rustic when paired with wooden chargers.
