A tablescape is more than a centerpiece, in that it sets the scene and uses the entire landscape of the table to convey a theme. From you dinnerware and flatware to your decorative elements, here are Christmas tablescape ideas that your holiday guests will love.
Choose a winter wonderland scene complete with faux sparkling snow as cotton and miniature trees and woodland animals. If you prefer a more elegant scene consider crystal and reflective Christmas decorations to set the scene for your dinnerware and glasses.
Decide if you want a single focal point such as a tall centerpiece or if you’d like your tablescape to stretch the length of your table. Then use colorful dinner plates, chargers, and separate place seating and decorative elements to bring color to each guests seat.
Table runners, table linen and fabric napkins are the ideal way to carry the color scheme throughout the entire table. For a more rustic approach, leave off the formal table linen and use just the bare table top to create your scene. Add metallic decorations with branches, twigs, and lighted Christmas ornaments in vases to complete the scene in the center of the table.
Try layering rectangular faux gifts wrapped with a large ribbon to make the perfect tablescape centerpiece!
