Setting the stage for a beautiful holiday gathering, from the smallest details to larger projects, is part of the season. It’s about making sure your holiday home is warm, welcoming and looking its best. Here are some ideas for creating your own stunning holiday tablescapes.
Fresh evergreen boughs and pine cones can be arranged with candles in holiday colors, and paired with rustic touches like burlap placemats and wooden bowls filled with old-fashioned ornaments and holly.
Add poinsettias and mistletoe in pots wrapped in burlap and secured with pretty country ribbons in holiday colors.
Create an alluring counterpoint of scent with traditional clove-studded oranges adorning various spots, and a pot of wassail staying warm on the stove.
Wintry blues, whites and silvers make for an enchanting holiday table.
Clear glass bowls filled with frosted ornaments and small, battery-operated strands of clear or blue lights look beautiful when paired with soft white place settings accented with blue.
Carry the look throughout your home with tiny white twinkle lights, white poinsettias in blue- or silver-accented pots and silver or blue snowflakes wherever there’s room.
This is a great table setting that provides a break from the warm reds and greens that come standard with the Holiday season. Take the time to fully embrace the beautiful, snowy vistas that accompany a Minnesota winter in the Twin Cities region.
A Warm Welcome
The chilly weather can increase the comfort and welcome felt when you join with family and friends.
Using warm colors (green and red, anyone?) and brightly-colored holiday decorations like gingerbread houses can be combines with the and solid-color place settings in green and red. Don’t forget to add a resting spot for the reindeer, if space allows!
Add in animated holiday figurines to complete the workshop theme, and fill the air with the scents of gingerbread, peppermint or chocolate.
Christmas in a Different Color
Now that holiday decorations are in stores before Halloween has come and gone, it’s easy to get burned out on the traditional colors. Instead, try a combination of your favorite colors to create a holiday tablescape that’s just your style.
Reflect the theme throughout your home with single-color lights, ornaments in offbeat colors and handmade decorations reflecting your personal taste.
