Beautiful Christmas Decor
The holiday table is a great place to make a decorating splash. Start with chargers, large decorative plates that form a base for your dinnerware. These are available in shops that sell dishes, such as Pier 1, in a variety of colors and textures to match any theme. Chargers make even everyday white dishes seem special.
To add more glitz, stack holiday-themed plates on top to enhance your colors. Crisp white dinner napkins are always elegant, and now’s the time to use them. Create a special napkin ring by attaching a holiday ornament to a twist of wire.
Believe it or not, mismatched dinnerware and linens are very festive. Use what you have, and mix and match on the table. Combine silver and gold chargers on the same table with reds and greens. Match contemporary dinnerware with vintage pieces, and highlight with a few candles. Everything looks special when lit by candlelight.

Flowers on a table always look attractive, particularly at a party. But you don’t need to break the bank to put them together. First, skip the fancy vase. Find a pretty serving bowl in your choice of color (we used a white soup tureen and platter) and use that for your blooms. Place floral foam inside, and begin adding your flowers. Select flowers (or even green plants, if you like) that match your colors, and fill in with a few snips of evergreen that you collect from your yard. These red and white roses were from our local grocer, the greens were from outside the front door, and the finishing sparkles were a few holiday ornaments that we tucked inside.

Another easy showstopper for the holidays is a special holiday wreath. Grapevine wreaths have great texture and come in a variety of sizes. For this piece, we reused a Thanksgiving wreath that was starting to look a little tired. We spray painted the wreath with primer, painted it again with a coat of white, and followed that with silver sparkle spray paint. We found three inexpensive mirrored “disco ball” ornaments at our local store, and hung them inside the wreath from silver ribbon at varying heights. Add a pretty bow made of double-faced wire ribbon and voila!, a holiday sparkler for very little money iIf you like this idea but want a more rustic look, leave the wreath unpainted and hang three beautiful pine cones or holiday ornaments inside).

If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to holiday decorating, begin by selecting one or two colors to organize your decor. For this room, simple cranberry reds and crisp whites provide a unifying theme. (This can also help you select items that aren’t specifically “holiday” to use in your decor.) Spark up everyday white dishes with a few red plates. Pull out your damask tablecloth, and sprinkle holiday ornaments on the table to accentuate it. Create super simple place cards with stickers designed for scrapbooking attached to white card stock. And no matter what colors you select, silver accents and the glitter of candles will combine with your hues elegantly.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: Everything looks better in candlelight. Candles are inexpensive and available in many shapes and sizes. For this decorative touch, we simply placed a glass candle votive inside a small vase, and surrounded the votive with cranberry colored glass beads. When the candle is lit, the glass beads glow, adding elegant ambiance to the table. You could also achieve a similar effect by setting a glass votive inside a colored vase.

A buffet or foyer table is a great spot for holiday bits and pieces. The rule of thumb here is to accent with pieces of varying heights. For instance, to anchor the far left side of this table, we pulled a small angel garden ornament out of storage, and filled the platform in front of it (intended for birdseed) with silver balls. For the center of our table, we used a glass cake plate filled with holiday ornaments and greens. (Turn the top of the cake plate upside down to add your bulbs, place the bottom on, and turn over carefully.) We also bought several simple papier mache boxes of different sizes, spray painted them silver, and stacked them together. We wrapped the whole thing with a sparkly silver ribbon. To finish, we painted wooden letters that we found at our local craft store silver, and added a little more sparkle by attaching adhesive snowflake stickers on the letters.
