Focus on the Center

Whether you choose a table runner or a tablecloth, the center of the table is your runway for all the best things: food (duh), flower arrangements, and candles. If you keep your focus on the center of the table, then everything else should come together as easy as pumpkin pie!

Mix and Match Dishes

Don’t be afraid to go a little eclectic and mix and match your dishes. This will ensure you have lots of colors and patterns on the table. Keep things simple, and it shouldn’t be overwhelming.

Plan Ahead

You’re reading this blog, so you must be doing alright! Plan ahead for the food, flower delivery, and decor so that you won’t be stressed the day of. One of our favorite tips? Set the table the night before Christmas— then you won’t even have to mess with it when you’re cooking all the food!

Rethink Your Color Palette

There’s certainly nothing wrong with red and green, but you can be as creative as you want with your color palette. Consider whites, golds, blues, pinks, and other jewel tones to change the ambiance.

Show Off Decorative Accents

Of course, our florist recommends flower arrangements galore for your Christmas table! Our local florist has crafted a variety of holiday florals for you to enjoy this year. You can also decorate with candles, lights, greenery, ornaments, figurines, and anything else that suits your fancy.

Think About Textures

Finally, think about textures throughout it all! Placemats, table runners, flower arrangements, placeholders, and more can all offer a variety of textures to liven up the table.
