The streets have already been filled with lights and the Christmas carols have already become our soundtrack of the moment. The most magical time of the year has finally arrived. And that means that we have to think about the decoration of our house, the gifts and, of course, the Christmas table. Can you handle it? Or, do you have guests at home during these Christmas days? Then take notes because we are going to give you ideas so that you receive them with a lot of style.
The key elements on a Christmas table
On an occasion like this, bringing warmth is essential. Without a doubt, fabrics are the soul of a warm environment. That is why on a Christmas table a tablecloth cannot be missing. Our recommendation? Bet on red or green tones both with printed patterns and with plain models. The prints that don’t fail? The plaid and those with holly leaves or nature motifs. For tablecloths in plain colors embossed or jacquard designs always stand out more.
Not all of us have several sets of dishes in our cupboards. A set in white, so common in the vast majority of houses, is always a success. The good thing is that this combines perfectly with everything and so we can play more with the accessories.
Glassware plays a very important role on the Christmas table. It is a special occasion so it is essential that it be elegant. It is time to take out the glasses and jugs to serve the drinks. These can be made of transparent glass (classic) or, if you dare, of a color like yellow to stand out, or in red. Those pieces with golden profiles also go wonderfully.
Is there anything more romantic and enjoyable than dining by candlelight? These, like the fabrics, bring a lot of warmth to the scene. And if you accept another advice we encourage you to place them in different sizes and heights to generate more movement and make your table even more special.
Placing a centerpiece or a leaf path is always a plus. With spruce or eucalyptus branches you can create your own compositions and the result is wonderful. And if crafts are not your forte, in any shop you can find ideal designs.
The details are what make the difference. To put the finishing touch and add an extra sophistication to your Christmas table, we encourage you to get accessories in gold. Low plates, napkin holders, signs to write the names… You’ll see how beautiful they look!
