Christmas is the perfect time to try your hand at setting a beautiful tablescape for holiday meals. Today, we’re sharing a traditional take on the season with a nutcracker themed tablescape incorporating rich reds and golds!
This reminds me of the type of tablescape that would be perfect in a mountain house for the holidays, don’t you think? It’s cozy, vibrant, and full of nutcracker charm.
My Mom is the mastermind behind this pretty holiday table so I look forward to sitting down to enjoy it over the season with my family. I gifted her these darling nutcracker plates a few years ago and she loves pulling them out each Christmas.
Let’s dive in to a few of my top tips for setting the Christmas table!
- Pick a color scheme! Whether it’s natural greens and silvers or vibrant red and gold, narrowing it down to a couple of colors helps keep your tablescape cohesive.
- Mix it up! Whoever said you can’t have shimmer with plaid? A shimmery gold table runner adds a festive touch to a patterned tablecloth. Too much pattern? Then flip it around and pair a patterned runner on a solid tablecloth or directly on the table.
- One of the quickest and easiest ways to add holiday charm to your Christmas table is adding in greenery! Greenery and pinecones add a natural element to the table and a beautiful base for glowing candles!
I hope you’re inspired to set your Christmas table for the holiday season! And if you’re hosting a holiday gathering, we have lots of festive party recipes coming your way soon. Don’t worry, you’ll be covered from table to kitchen!
