I always love making the house festive for the holidays. Dreaming up new ideas for our Christmas table decorations is especially fun, and a great way to get into the holiday mood. I enjoyed browsing these creative Christmas table decorations, and I hope they will inspire your ho-ho-ho-holiday spirit too!
The rich burst of red is a seasonal tradition, but this Christmas table decoration design also packs an updated and elegant punch. The purity of red and white is made even more stunning with no other color to dilute its impact. But the stars hanging from the ceiling really make this arrangement stand out from the crowd. The stars are such a simple detail and easy to do, but they create a powerful impression and evoke images of the Nativity.
This chic dining table setting has a hint of French flair about it! The silver, white, and navy color combination rings the changes from the more usual Christmas scheme of red and green. And the love birds theme is very sweet!
In a similar vein, this white and silver Christmas table decoration looks pristine and pretty. The setting stands out so elegantly because it is placed on a black or very dark brown table. This makes the white table runner, flatware, candles, and napkins really pop! The setting itself is actually quite simple, but the silver-sprayed pine cones and tall white buds pull the whole look together. The flowers’ green stems add a lively note and prevent the table looking too stark.
Many small and thoughtful details add up to this rather eclectic holiday table by Edmonton Interior Designers & Decorators. The red ribbon tied around the “gift-wrapped” chairs creates a festive atmosphere. (If you like the look of these chairs, we have some similar sets of linen-covered chairs in the gallery – minus the ribbon! – and more on the way. Email me and I’ll send you links.) The table is strewn with strings of red beads and flowers hang from the chandelier. If you look closely, you’ll see that the framed letters on the mantle spell out “Merry Christmas.”
Finally, the homely mason jar is cleverly made into an attractive Christmas table decoration by the addition of some winter greenery layered with cranberries. The jar is filled with water and a floating tea light. It would make a striking centerpiece, and look great on a mantle too. Or place a row down the middle of your holiday table and your decor job is complete!
