Elegant Christmas Setting

For a Memorable Meal

Collaborated Contribution by Kelle Ann Mccarter of DesignsGirl + Tasha Frye, owner of L’Arrangement

Because it comes but once a year, we know that Christmas is one of the best opportunities to break out the fancy China and create a truly beautiful tablescape to accommodate your holiday feast. While unique holiday color palettes and table arrangements such as this one are lovely, there is also something special about traditional Christmas colors & decorations. This elegant Christmas setting by Kelle Ann McCarter is just that: traditional, welcoming, and lovely. Be sure to visit the local shops in your area this year for holiday decor inspiration, and to find some unique decorations for your own special holiday display. Read below for some tips on how to create your own unique holiday tablescape this year!

Holiday Tablescape Tips

1. Use a foundation of neutral linens and fabrics. Damask linens that drape this gorgeous hammered metal table add a layer of softness and pattern. Burlap ribbon is laid as a table runner punctuated with fresh flowers.

2. Bring out your finest china, and feel free to mix patterns. Featured here are lavish Gien china patterns in Filet Noel and Pont Aux Choux.

3. Add reflective touches to capture light such as mercury votive candle holders and gleaming glassware. The glass candlesticks and tall cake pedestal shown here are by Arte Italica.

4. Be festive and include a touch of whimsy. Jeweled crown by Cody Foster. Silver boar pepper grinder and pheasant shaker by Chehoma.

5. Always make fresh flowers a part of the holiday table. Whether it be a fresh pine garland or more formal floral arrangement, fresh greenery and floral accents add a polished touch to the setting. On this table are fresh springs of bay leaf napkin rings, fresh cranberry floral arrangement with greenery and red roses, and table runner flowers of dusty miller, red roses, and velvety coxcomb. There is a plethora of holiday floral arrangements to choose from; be sure to visit your local florist for help when choosing color palettes and arrangements!
