“Christmas is a day of meaning and traditions, a special day spent in the warm circle of family and friends.” – Margaret Thatcher
Sometimes the simplest touches you make can have the biggest impact. By adding just one or two ideas to your table, you can take it from good to amazing.
Here are the 11 Simple Hacks to Jazz Up Your Christmas Table:
1) Ornament place cards.
- Something as simple as an ornament can be used as your place card. Simply write each guest’s name on his or her ornament by using a silver or gold paint pen.
2) Folded napkins.
Why have simply folded napkins, when you can take it to the next level. Google napkin folding ideas and pick your favorite idea and go to town.
3) A touch of nature.
If you would rather not make a fancy fold, why not try to add just a simple holiday touch to the top of your napkins?
4) Potted trees.
Adding a small potted tree at each place setting would add a sweet nod to nature.
5) Elegant herbs and spices.
Herbs and spices are one of the easiest things you can use to top your festive holiday dishes to add elegance to any table. Look how much a sprig of rosemary fancied up this bowl of cranberries:
Cinnamon sticks are the perfect complement to holiday food:
6) Old-fashioned fun.
Traditional holiday elements stand the test of time because they work and offer a glimpse into past Christmas memories. Gingerbread and orange twists are those simple things that touch our hearts and are visually festive.
7) Fruit & vegetables.
Using what you have in the kitchen to add color to your table is an easy way to make your table special and keep your holiday budget in control.
Pinecones are my favorite way to decorate for the holidays. They are so beautiful, yet add a rustic touch to every table. You want your table centerpiece to be low to invite conversation, so a wooden bowl filled with pinecones and accented with greenery makes an easy, yet festive focal point to your table.
Using a garland to run down the center of your table doesn’t take up too much room, yet adds festive decor to your table. You can add fairy lights and ornaments to make it spectacular.
10) Ribbons and bows.
A simple bow can make all things a bit brighter.
11) Holiday drinks.
Festive drinks are easy to make and with the right mug or glass, can really add holiday spirit to your gathering. Each glass is a beautiful decoration on its own.
