Discover interior designer’s ideas for creating 3 trendy and festive holiday tablescapes – Evergreen Tablescape Style, White and Gold Christmas Table Décor, and Minimal Black and White Christmas Tablescape.
When winter starts and the cosy nights at home with a cup of tea or chocolate begin, we know the Christmas holidays are just around the corner! This beautiful and festive season of togetherness is a great time for socializing with loved ones. Also, for expressing our creativity through delicious food and holiday home decor.
If you are going to cook and host a lunch or dinner party at home this year, here we will show you three different ideas to design a modern and cosy Christmas tablescape to surprise your guests. In this article – discover the designer’s tips for these creative tablescape themes.
Evergreen Tablescape Style
Green is always in style, especially for Christmas. In this evergreen tablescape, the traditional touch is in the snowed green table pine trees, while geometric deers and the white ceramic candle holders give it a minimalist and contemporary vibe.
Adding ceramic house candle holders is an excellent idea to light up your dining table, especially if you are hosting a dinner party. Decorative Scandi-style homes have been a trend for several years now and this year is no exception. It’s time to show them off again! Also, just like the white deer and trees, you can also place them to dress up a fireplace, your hallway table, or a spare shelf.
Placemats in warm neutral tones and pinecones will warm up the tablescape. Add some more texture to the decor with your placemats and napkins for a rustic touch. The contrast between rustic placemats and modern tableware is perfect for striking the right balance between elegance and cosiness.
And now, metallic sparkle in the form of the cutlery. The star of the season is the gold cutlery! (In the Photos – Tablescape from What a Host Home, Styled by Geraldine Tan from LittleBigBell)
White and Gold Christmas Table Décor
To create a white-and-gold-themed Christmas table décor from the previously shown tablescape, just slightly change the previous design by placing full white or white and gold table pines as the centerpiece elements. This way, with the same base it is possible to achieve a different result.
Once again, deer complement the table runner design in balance with the trees and the small ceramic houses to create a beautiful white Christmas forest (Trend alert: This year you will hear a LOT about White Christmas).
Like the Evergreen Tablescape, this design works great with a white-based dining table or white tablecloth as a decorative base. Although, it could also be combined very well with a light beige or a light salmon colour.
Minimal Black and White Christmas Tablescape
Well… The colours to decorate during Christmas come in many combinations, and Cinthya from Handcrafted Cin made it clear with this Tablescape Design. Although it is difficult to think about a different proposal on such a traditional date, it is also true that designing a tablescape including black touches in the plates, cutlery, and candle holders can be innovative, different, and very elegant!
In this case, the contrast between black and white plates and the white tablecloth generates three different layers that work perfectly with the green garland table runner and the decorative hanging arrangement. And, as we always say, if you want your table to look unique – adding details is the way to go. For instance, adding place cards with your guests’ names is a great way to make them feel special.
Another attractive and different idea is to add trendy paper baubles at the center of the plate. These stylish paper baubles are an absolute trend this season. They can be tree decorations, centerpiece elements, or plate ornaments for a holiday dining table.
Napkins can be arranged to the side of the plate, under or around the bauble. Undoubtedly, a proposal with a modern and elegant Scandinavian style. (Styling and Photos – Handcrafted Cin: Handcrafted and sustainable gift tags, place cards and paper ornaments).
