A holiday table is one of my favourite things at any time of year. But trying to decided on a theme and make it all come together can either be lots of fun or the worst part. I talked to some friends and they all wanted me to create a warm red holiday table. So I did!
My mom has always used beautiful table cloths, we normally go with a gold table cloth but I decided to go bold this time and go full red. This is actually great because on this deeper colour you wont notice if you drip any food onto it.
Now depending on your family and who is attending candles will or won’t work. It is just me and my parents so we always love to have candles and dim the lights for a beautiful setting.
I think having a charger plate first is really classy and makes your table look set even before you get the plates out. We have a few different colours now but of course my favourite is gold. There are so many cute ways you can present the cutlery, in a napkin fold our just placed to the side. My mom got these adorable mitten holders a few years ago and they are perfect to add some winter feel to the table.
I love to get creative with napkins, I googled some napkin folding videos and found this Christmas tree one! It takes a few seconds to do but looks amazing! I think that will certainly impress your guests.
For name cards I wanted to add some candy canes to the mix. it was very simple to do all you need is:
Paper for the names
Simply glue three candy canes together so they stand up. Make sure two of them are close together to hold the paper.
I added a few more candy canes to the center candle holder for some extra sweetness 😉 I also love these beautiful snowflake wine glasses. They only get used at the holidays but they are so pretty.
To add some greenery to my table I picked some of the Holly from our bush and dried it then placed it on each setting, this could be done with anything or make a little bouquet of leaves or flowers to place down.
What does your holiday table look like this year? Do you have a plan? If not I hope this red holiday table inspires you to create something beautiful! I would love to see how your tables turn out!
