Christmas Dining Decorating Ideas
Accessorizing your dining chairs is not often something we see at Christmas, we usually see it at weddings. You can see from this photograph, how effective a simple red ribbon can be when tied over a dining chair and highlighted with a cone and some greenery. This looks stunning when used here with white slip covers over the chairs. The best thing about this type of decorating, is that it sets the mood for the room, so you don’t have to go all out for the table center piece, which can often dominate the space and have to be removed when the food is placed on the table. You could make this look your own by adding fine gold ribbon as well, spraying the cone gold or silver, use little tree decorations instead of the cones like bells or balls, stars or angels, or if you want to make it understated simply tie the ribbon into a bow at the back of the chair.
This table setting works with the chairs above to follow on with the simple red, cones and greenery theme. A piece of lacquered timber is placed on greenery through the center of the table, glass vases with floating candles are added to the middle and as a focal point cranberries are floating in the vases, a very clever decorative touch. The cones are placed randomly around the vases to pull the piece together and just to top it off without adding too much more decoration to the table a small piece of greenery is threaded through the napkin ring balancing the place setting with the chairs and the table center piece. The good thing about this center piece is that it is low so you can still speak to your family over the top of it. Variations of this could be like the chair variations, spray the cones gold or silver, use floating ball or star ornaments in the vases in gold or silver, fix a silver or gold ribbon along the timber like a table runner. In fact, you use any Christmas color scheme you wanted. White and silver with royal blue is very popular, green with white and silver, burgundy red with gold, black with silver or black with gold. Of course adding greenery works with all these color combinations.
The next step is to get enthusiastic and get started. Think of what you already have at home that you can use to create your dining table setting, then work out how you can use this idea, transforming it into your own original Christmas dinner table. Have fun and Merry Christmas.
