This festive tabletop takes cues from the room, and its whimsical wallpaper makes the space feel like you’re dining in a beautifully wrapped package. The red upholstered dining chairs pair well with ruby-hued floral accents throughout the room.
Holidays are the perfect excuse to utilize and enjoy your fine china and silver. Whether used as elegant centerpiece vessels or mixed with more casual wares, your heirloom pieces can truly shine at Christmastime.
Pomegranates are the key ingredient to this jolly tablescape. The vibrant woodland berry-themed salad plates are paired with a red-and-white-striped dinner napkin, a crimson dinner plate rimmed with gold, and a neutral charger to create an elegant, layered aesthetic. Elevate the look by placing a handful of real pomegranates around the table’s centerpiece and place settings.
Having a serving station for your holiday gatherings helps to keep guests out of the busy kitchen. A drink station is dressed up with cheerful bottle-brush trees and a stately arrangement of fresh paperwhite bulbs.
The glistening lights of the bauble-filled Christmas tree add a magical glow to the dining room table. Carrying the holiday décor throughout the open-flow dining and living room spaces allows guests a comfy place to unwind after a delicious meal.
