Holiday Sparkle: Tabletop Design

There's no denying that one of the most celebrated holidays around the globe is Christmas. It's the most wonderful time of the year to spend quality time with the one's you love.  And what's better than sharing a meal on a well-dressed table.  Create a dazzling tabletop design that will stimulate your guests when hosting dinner for family and friends this holiday season. 

 

Take your cues from nature

Take a stroll through your backyard for some greenery to spice up your tabletop design.  Using bright, sparkling green is a modern twist on the traditional evergreen hues. Warm up the table by adding natural colored votive holders to bring in the sparkle.

Diner en Blanc 

Create a classy and oh-so sophisticated table using a tone-on-tone approach.  Use various shades of white, accented with metals, glass ornaments and luxurious textures.  Top with sparkling sliver and white ornaments, trees and glass candle holders. Natural elements, such as flowers, add richness and depth to this centerpiece.

You can never have to much Sparkle! 

Make your table look lively and elegant.  Bring a metallic touch to your Christmas centerpiece with décor like mercury glass and unique Christmas ornaments.  Wrap colorful napkins with something shiny and bright.

Modern Holiday

Style your table with unusual white dinnerware.  Keep the décor minimal by using colorful ornaments down the center of table and candlelight.  Well-placed Christmas ornaments add seasonal highlights.

Glam It Up

For an elegant display, add sparkle by using mirrors down the center to echo the light from the candles in crystal holders. Give your table a little more oomph by hanging glass ornaments in reflective hues from the ceiling or the chandelier.

Add some whimsy to your tabletop with glittering trees and stacked ornament topiaries. This creates interest by placing the items on cake plates of varying heights.  This simple eye-catching display of red and white is perfect for a last-minute party. Try an unexpected centerpiece arrangement. Instead of flowers, wrap small boxes in white paper and ribbon and place inside a bowl.
