1. Create Simple Centerpiece Statements On Smaller Tables.
Above we have a beautiful winter tablescape with a simple, almost minimal design. This simple look provides a festive, winter look to the table without taking up too much space. When it comes to designing your tablescape you need to know the size of the table and how much space it actually provides for the centerpiece, decorations and actual dining. You might have a good sized table, but after the table is set that space you thought you had no longer exists. Maximize your table space by eliminating the large, unnecessary centerpiece. Give the space back to you and your guests while you are dining and enjoying each others company.
2. Create A Festive Winter Scene On Larger Table.
Are you daunted by the task of decorating a large table for the holidays? Don’t bother bringing down box after box trying to decorate the large table. Instead you should create a fun and festive winter scene with smaller pieces to act as the table centerpiece. This will allow you to fill up the large table by giving it a full, decorated look. The tablescape above demonstrates this perfectly. They only used a few small pieces to create a full, winter scene as their centerpiece on the table. This leaves plenty of maneuverability and functionality for anyone sitting at the table enjoying their meal.
Let these two quick tips help you or any loved ones this holiday season. There’s no need for the extra stress! Focus on your family and friends by giving them the perfect table to gather around. Below we have a few more tablescapes and centerpieces for you to enjoy. Good luck decorating this holiday season and don’t forget to have fun!
It’s time to start breaking out the winter and holiday decor if you haven’t already. We’ve got a few images here to spark your inner winter decorating skills and to inspire you to try something new. You’re dining table is going to see some action this holiday season and you’ve better be ready for it.
Whether it’s bright winter berries scattered about on the table or even ornaments incorporated into the center piece, your dining table can become the perfect holiday show piece in your home. There’s no need to go above and beyond when it comes to decorating your dining table. Remember at some point you are going to be eating on this table, so leave some room for the food and cut out the unnecessary stress of having to strip all of your beautiful decorations off the table. We aren’t saying that you should just put a few pine leaves and call it a day, but there’s no need for the mini Christmas tree with a full town nativity scene either – put that on one of your side consoles.
Hopefully some of these images bring you some inspiration and new ideas. Next week we’ll actually get into decorating our dining table, so make sure you check back in for that post.
