If you’re anything like me, you stay with the same general color schemes and ideas in most years. But I’ve noticed a lot of pretty holiday tables in colors that are not what you naturally think of for Christmas.
So Tip #17 in our series of decorating ideas is to try a new color scheme for your Christmas entertaining.
I used to collect willow ware and absolutely loved it but I never thought of using on my table at Christmas.
Above right is a beautiful brown, green and ivory holiday table, which was from Southern Living and MyHomeIdeas.com. The tiny stocking with natural greens tucked inside add just the right holiday touch.
And speaking of brown… what’s not to love about this rustic holiday look? It’s from HGTV. I love the cinnamon sticks and the metal star. So pretty.
You can also go crazy with color.
Both the Better Homes and Gardens examples above below show how you can incorporate a rainbow of colors and still set a gorgeous Christmas table.
I’ve also always liked the unmatched look for a dining table and HGTV has a great example at right.
There’s nothing particularly Christmasy about this collection of china.
But you could add just a few ornaments on the table and maybe a little greenery and you’ve got a beautiful holiday table.
How do you set your holiday table?
