Ideas for your own holiday table
Think beyond your fine china when setting the table this holiday season. Here are 25 of our favorite images of holiday tablescapes to inspire you this season.
Handmade Wooden Box
A handmade wood box not only creates a focal point in a dining room, but can also be easily used throughout the rest of the year as table decor.
Antique sheet music makes a chic, unconventional base for this white-and-silver place setting. Top the music with a silver charger, an ironstone dinner plate and a silver bread plate. Then, roll up a monogrammed linen napkin in a simple silver ring.
Cranberries and Juniper
Clear Mason jars filled with cranberries, Epsom salt and greenery are a casual country touch to this tablescape.
Fuchsia and Silver
Rich fuchsia linens contrast dramatically with silver embellishments and bright white tableware to create a magical winter table setting.
Earthy oranges and reds warm up this winter table. A low centerpiece spans the length of the table and allows for easy conversation.
Deck the halls with blue, white, and silver to create a winter wonderland in your dining room. Details like frosted pine cones, glittered ornaments, and white stockings complete the look.
This is a magnificent idea for a festive holiday with an abundance of silver and candlelight.
Use mini gingerbread houses, marshmallows, and white florals including roses, chrysanthemums, hydrangeas and gladiolus to make this winter wonderland.
Replace red with pink for a fun twist on the traditional Christmas color scheme.
Simple Gardenia Setting
A simple setting with a gardenia at each place setting is perfectly gorgeous.
Winter White Style
A beautiful winter white tablescape is appropriate for the holiday season.
Pinecones and Roses
Use real pine cones and fresh flowers to give off a subtle aroma that'll have guests reminiscing about holidays past.
Mercury and Votives
Elegant lighting — mercury hurricanes and votives complete the look.
Create a cozy winter look with branches or other organic materials. Branches are a great way to bring the outdoors inside and create a wow factor for your guests.
You won’t be afraid to welcome the kids to the table, or create a separate kids table altogether, with a tabletop setup that they can spill on all they like: Use wrapping paper as a low cost, festive runner that you can crumple up and recycle after the meal.
For winter, stereotypical red and green decor abounds. Get a look that’s more unique with a palette that marks a departure from those norms, like monochromatic white.
Magnolia and tartan holiday plates decorate this tablescape.
Christmas Dessert Table
This Christmas-themed dessert table will leave kids of all ages ready to indulge.
Simple Luncheon Placesetting
Simple green dishes, oranges and a bit of rosemary make for a rustic placesetting for a holiday luncheon.
Red and White
Cheerful red and white dishes are the anchor of this festive holiday table.
Berries and Cinnamon
Winter berries and cinnamon sticks add color and delicious holiday scents to any tablescape.
The glow of Christmas lights makes this simple table magical.
These tall glass vases are filled with limes and red ornaments for bold color. The red chairs are what really makes this look. If your chairs aren't red, you can always add red seat cushions or chair covers during the holidays.
Vintage with Brown Pears
This French trestle dining table is accented with brown pears, white roses, and olive branches. The vintage linens and antique dinnerware make this tablescape lovely.
You don't have to go over the top. Try simple linens from IKEA and one branch of berries for this clean look.
