Simply Sophisticated Holiday Table Décor
Preparing for the holidays can seem challenging. However, there are many ways you can turn your dinner table into a beautiful setting for guests without too much fuss. Try these simply sophisticated table décor ideas that will not add any stress, only elegance.
Add colorful foods
Using food can be a simple and visually appealing way to create an attractive setting. Fruits such as oranges, pears and cranberries, or even small pumpkins and gourds, can make for lovely centerpieces and can also act as a take home gift for guests. Fill a few glass jars or vases with a food item that adds color to your setting. Nuts can also pair nicely with many other items.
Make place cards
Handwritten place cards add a personal touch and are simple, yet further enhance your table. Or, for a printed card, use thicker paper stock in your home printer to give a more professional look.
Remember the details
The smallest details can leave a lasting impression. Tie your silverware or napkins with a lovely piece of ribbon or twine, then use a few twigs, berries or a cinnamon stick to complete the look. You can also leave candies or mints near the place setting as a gift for your guests. Details do matter!
Bring the outdoors inside
Use what you can from the great outdoors. Twigs, leaves, berries, pinecones and branches can be used as seasonal décor. Place a cake stand or other type of structure to elevate the centerpiece, and line it with an arrangement of outdoor items. Complement your centerpiece with a few ornaments or ribbons to enhance the holiday look. However, remember not to overfill your table, less can be more appealing.
