Christmas is very near and one of the great characteristics of this festivity is the exquisite dinner that you prepare every year. But these celebrations to accompany the delicious feast will be necessary that you place an enviable table, which the companions at the table will want to have.
It is necessary to take into account the number of guests and the form of your table, to be able to select the necessary and correct tools for your decoration. Do not forget that it will always be necessary to adapt the ideas to your needs and your space, this will give more originality and operation to each of the elements.
Select the tablecloth
The tablecloth can be one of the most important decisions to be able to place your table since it will be the base of everything. It is necessary that you use one that fits the shape of the table, whether it is round, square, or rectangular. Take into account the length you drop on the edges, as sometimes it can be a bit cumbersome if the drop is very long. You can use plain colors such as red or white, to make it easier to combine the other elements. But if you want to use a tablecloth with a print or a mixture of colors, it is possible, although you will have to take care of the other elements when using them.
Usually, this type of dish is used only for decoration and not for serving food. It is a current trend to use a base plate of a different color than the rest of the dishes, as long as it is within the color range. Integra matte colors, if the decoration around is very bright, but equally you can put metallic colors which will give a perspective of greater depth and space between services. Place cutlery that highlights and makes a noticeable contrast between the base plate and the sides of the service.
You have to take important points in order to select the ideal centerpiece. If you have an elongated table, you can add a long centerpiece which can be accompanied by candles and different flowers. Do not forget that the width of this centerpiece should not be too much, in order to put the services properly and have space. In the case of having a round table, it is recommended that you place a smaller centerpiece; this will give a cozy and very colorful touch but at the same time it will not interfere with the placement of the services.
Perfect for decorating the table with or without services. This element is recommended only for long tables as it will give a better view. It is necessary that this piece only covers one piece in a straight line since it is not intended to be a tablecloth but a companion. You can place it with everything and the services for the diners, although I recommend that it is better at the time of taking coffee or a cup of chocolate where all the elements of food are collected and only the table path is found as a complementary element on top, it is possible to place elements for better distribution and better view.
Now that you know what are some ideas you can adapt to your Christmas table and make it look radiant, it’s time to put them into practice and reflect your style and good taste.
