Keep It Minimalist Chic

Abi Dare from These Four Walls, a UK-based stylist, photographer, and blogger, designed a stylish, modern, minimalist Christmas table in muted shades of white, black, and grey. A neutral background is created by a white tablecloth, grey dinnerware, linen napkins, candles, black cutlery, and clear glass, so no particular holiday accessories are necessary. As an alternative, she adds seasonal touches like pine cones and fir trimmings. A trio of plain black-and-white paper stars hung above the table unifies the design and brings a touch of holiday whimsy to the formal setting.

Add Wintry Vibes

With basic tablecloths, a vase of pine leaves, little tree figurines, and house-shaped porcelain votive candles, this wintry Scandi-inspired design from Emily Henderson Design creates a comforting festive atmosphere that appeals to children of all ages.

Hang a Wall Garland

Anita Yokota, an interior designer, created an illusion of a deconstructed vertical garden on the wall behind the dining table by hanging a striking green and white garland there in a casual swag. The table can then be used for food and drinks by choosing one statement design and keeping the rest of the decor plain. The garland creates a conversation piece to anchor the holiday dining area and is festive without being overly Christmassy, so you won’t feel rushed to take it down too soon.

Mix Blue and Gold

With the addition of tree sculptures and a centrepiece in icy blue and white tones, Mel Bean Interiors decided to play off the blue colour scheme of this large dining room, which features blue velvet upholstered chairs and a rug with a blue pattern. To add warmth, golden hues are used to decorate and illuminate the nearby white Christmas tree.

Use Black and White Stripes

This Christmas table setting from Lindye Galloway Studio + Shop seems light, easy, and contemporary thanks to a centrepiece consisting of vibrant greens, pomegranates, dried orange slices, and simple candles, as well as neutral-toned modern tableware and plenty of warm wood accents.

Suspend the Centerpiece

Designer Annie Sloan designed a beautiful and eco-friendly dramatic natural garland consisting of greenery and dried orange slices strung from a long branch that is suspended over a dormant Christmas table and transforms it into a centrepiece even when not in use.

Accent with Silver

Anita Joyce, a blogger from Cedar Hill Farmhouse, used a white and silver colour scheme to create a bright and breezy Christmas table. An exquisite base is created by combining basic white dinnerware with Bavarian antique and vintage Christmas mix-and-match china and cut crystal glassware. She injected some glitzy holiday cheer with figurines of silver-studded deer and large silver tree balls perched on miniature boxwood wreaths to heighten the place settings. A vase filled with berries and bushy greenery gives texture and a hint of freshness.

Add Woodsy Charm

Blogger Eden Passante of Sugar and Charm used a contemporary, rustic style to decorate her Christmas table at her cabin in Tennessee. Olive wood chargers and napkin holders, forest green candles, striped linen table runner, white flowers, and seasonal foliage all add to the rustic appeal of the table.

Decorate with Pine Cone Trees

For her rustic Christmas table, blogger Leslie Saeta of My 100 Year Old Home created painted pine cone tree centerpieces. To amplify the festive ambiance, she also hung leftover pine cones from the ceiling with fishing line. A playful touch is added by the bright red holiday berries and the polka dot water glasses and napkins.
