Dress Up Your Dining Room for a Holiday Feast!
December 13th, 2012 | by The Update
With the holidays drawing ever closer, it’s time to not only think of what meals to plan, but how to prepare your table for all your merry guests. But there’s no need to stress— a little detail goes a long way!
This year, simple, modern designs are where it’s at, providing a sleek, contemporary ambiance without detracting from your delicious meal. Go for more minimalist color schemes— focus on either red and white, like the picture to the right, or white and green for a more now Christmas theme. Also, nature-inspired decor is all-the-rage, so try adding some natural elements like fresh evergreen leaves, fragrant cinnamon sticks, or branches with hanging ornaments.
If you’re looking for a little sparkle, try adding some shiny placemats and napkin rings, glittery ornaments nestled on candlesticks, or use some sparkly snow-capped pine cones for some sweet and festive place holders. With details like these, you’re sure to put a twinkle in everyone’s eye!
