Holiday Table Design Ideas
While glitz and glam work well during the holidays, there are other
options for table top decor. Eatertainment has designed fun
holiday table ideas that may already be in your backyard or household
cupboards. Not only are they eco-friendly but they are simple
enough to get the kids involved... all without causing too much of a
Take some time to explore the great outdoors and your closets, you may
be surprised by what you can find that will add that little extra to
your next dinner party.
- A winter scarf works well as a table runner against a white or neutral coloured linen
- Use natural elements, such as pinecones for place card holders or
place fallen evergreen boughs throughout your home. They will will create a
holiday feel and provide that 'Christmas scent'.
- Beeswax candles are 100% natural and they clean the air as they
give off a warm glow. Use espresso cups as a convenient votive holder
your table this year.
As for the eternal question of 'what does one do with all the Christmas
cards once Christmas is over...?' Save them! Old cards are put to good
use as the backdrops for all your holiday dinner
menus. This is where the kids can get involved too. Using the backside

kids do all the decorating.

can copy or perhaps they will inspire you to create your own!
If at the end of the day the glitz and glam is what you are after, our
suggestion to you is to keep it simple, use blacks, reds and silvers to
create a trendy table top. Different events require different decor and
that is what keeps the holidays exciting - a new look for every menu.
Whatever look you choose, the most important part of entertaining
is that you enjoy the time with your family and friends. Happy
