In five days it will be holy evening, so it is high time to think about the table decoration. I think there’s nothing like a beautifully laid Christmas table. It’s clear that on Christmas Eve the cloth napkins hidden at the back of the cupboard will be on the table. But what about the decoration? Have you already planned anything? So here are my 8 tips for the perfect Christmas table. As always nice and simple but with a huge WOW factor. Christmas can come!
1. less is more
It doesn’t always have to glitter and shine. Beautifully arranged fir branches, combined with candlesticks are enough to decorate the table festively.
2. candles always go
Christmas without candles is like gifts without ribbons. Unfortunately, pretty candlesticks are often in short supply. This great DIY quickly remedies this. Simply put beautiful twigs and leaves into bottles of different sizes, fill with water and put the candles on.
3. name cards have to be made
Everybody likes it when their name is on a nice card. Simply cut cards to the desired size, write names on them and put a rosemary branch through a small hole in the paper. Looks great and smells great, too.
4. knot napkins nobly
No napkin rings at hand? It doesn’t matter. Just tie a leather strap around the napkins. Simple, practical and also super chic.
5. chains of lights on the table
Fairy lights always go and the fine Fairy Lights make themselves great on the table. Practically, they are also available with a battery connection. So the danger of cable clutter is a thing of the past!
6. an affectionate gift
Small pendants always look good around napkins or simply as a decoration on the plate. Simply roll out the white clay, carve patterns and shapes or unplug them and let them dry well. It goes without saying that guests can take the beautiful pieces home with them.
7. a little tree for every guest
These little trees are simply great and made super fast. Cut fir branches and fix them with hot glue on a small piece of wood. The mini Christmas tree is ready.
8. a sky of stars
If you like it a little more luxuriant, you can practice folding. Paper stars above the table make a great trap. Simply attach the finished stars with nylon thread from the blanket over the table. You can find instructions for folding here.
Now I wish you happy holidays and a lot of fun decorating.
