Christmas is a time to gather family, friends, everyone you love to celebrate the union and the closing of another year. Nothing better than to gather everyone around a table full of a supper prepared with all the love and affection, with typical dishes of this time of year and all your favorites! The decor of the table can not fail to enter this Christmas mood, with many green and red decorations, lights, a special towel and their separate crockery for the biggest celebrations!
It's about this special decoration that we'll talk about in today's post! There are several ways to organize your decor, in different styles and with elements of all kinds, creating a special and cozy atmosphere to welcome all your guests.
Styles to adopt at your table
In any type of decoration, whether for your home or at the table, there are several styles of decoration for you to compose. Here we separate three styles, from classic to contemporary-minimalist, whatever your taste, budget and even willingness to make and organize your arrangements.
Classic Christmas table
The green, red and golden table, in the classic colors of Christmas never go out of style! For those who want a traditional decoration, bet on a red towel, candles in the center of the table and even arrangements with leaves and pine cones. It's a kind of easy decor that can easily be made, and if you have Christmas decorations left over or past celebrations, use them as add-ons for your table!
Rustic Christmas table
The rustic decor with many elements in wood, natural fibers, leather and raw cotton are on the rise for anyone who is within the rustic's growing trend. This decoration can become very elegant and sophisticated, bet on table-top candles, many aromatic herbs and even little plants to add a natural finishing touch to your composition.
Christmas table minimalist
Another contemporary trend is minimalism, and even in times when the decoration is more expressive and full of details like Christmas, it is possible to apply this lifestyle. Insert green or red elements (or even both) and even some candles or lights in your decor and it will completely lose the face of simplicity and become more elegant. The gold or silver are also great colors to insert in your decor and make them more festive. In this type of decoration, also bet on the simplest shapes and without many ornaments and think that less is more!
What can not miss on your Christmas table?
Although there are several types of decorations for Christmas tables, there are some elements that make all the difference in the composition of your table and that can not miss! We separated some of them with tips on how to use them on your desk.
- Remembrance for the guests of this special date: cards, candies and decorative souvenirs are great additions to the arrangement of your table and to add a treat to give your guests. If you prefer a souvenir to eat, cinnamon or gingerbread cookies, especially if made at home are always wise choices (and, for those who enjoy following American traditions at Christmas, it's a classic!)
- Christmas scents : Aromatizers of environment, sprays, flavored candles, fresh herbs and seasonings added in the decoration of your table make all the difference in the time to leave the pleasant and comfortable environment for the guests. And for those who do not want to spend too much, there are several types of natural flavorings that can be made at home with fruits! For a Christmas scent, do not dispense cinnamon in both desserts and decor!
- Candles, many candles : Another essential element for any Christmas table is candles. Whether they are large in a chandelier or small in small candle holders scattered across the table. Bet on the red, green and gold colored candles for the Christmas mood!
- Christmas Special Items : There are some items that make any kind of special table decoration that are not always used, such as printed napkins (which can be paper or fabric), bowls and cutlery. You know that set of cutlery, silverware, or family dishes that are stored, this is the time to take it out of the closet and use it!
- An arrangement to enchant : An arrangement for the center of the table, whether it is round or square, or extending across the center line, in the case of rectangular tables (especially the longest tables). To delight everyone, it is worth to bet on handmade arrangements, mainly by mixing natural elements such as pine cones, laurel leaves, cinnamon, and industrialized elements such as decorated Christmas balls, chains and even blinkers for the larger arrangements.
