“Your dining room table is a blank canvas for bringing your holiday vision to life,” says Lifestyle Expert Brandi Milloy (@brandimilloy), and we couldn’t agree more! Brandi’s got great ideas for creating a gorgeous look on your holiday table that’s so much more than a simple centerpiece.
Watch the video below, and get inspired to create your own personalized holiday table look.
3 Amazing Holiday Tablescapes
Look 1: Traditional and Timeless
For so many of us, getting into the holiday spirit means infusing everything with a hint of nostalgia. Red and green, highlighted by hints of gold and vintage-looking craft paper details, and plates emblazoned with jolly old St. Nick create a feeling filled with the charms of yesteryear.
If you haven’t already incorporated Christmas Crackers into your holiday celebration, make this the year you do! They’re a holiday table staple at British Christmas affairs, and the Brits do vintage Christmas better than anyone.
Look 2: Dress Up for Dinner
Who says you can’t go glam? If your holiday parties lean toward the swankier side, set a table with elegant frosty hues accented by dazzling hints of gold and silver. Long, tapered candles give the design a little lift while emphasizing the formality of the gathering, and a hexagon terrarium with a snowy scene adds visual depth and interest.
Look 3: Whimsical and Festive Holiday Table
Bright colors and fun details abound in this abundant tablescape. Santa takes center stage on our fun plates, and the forest scene comes to life atop a tribal-inspired runner with brilliant hues. The textures here are softer and more tactile, giving the impression of a much more casual gathering.
And, of course, nothing says Christmas quite like a gathering of llamas. Sprinkle them throughout the scene and watch your guests delight in their adorable dinner companions.
