{Holiday Tablescape Decor}

here's a few inspirational photos for a beautifully scaped christmas table this season:

beautifully festive and traditional red and green, 
this look is texturally balanced by blending the silver and glass with the natural elements, such as the faux wooden candle, the greenery, poinsettias, and holly berries..

this table oozes elegance, but all the glow from the candlelight helps keep it warm and inviting, not too stuffy. the trick here is to mix your candle sizes: blending columns, votives, and tapers to have all different heights. layering your decor over a mirrored "table runner" creates added glamour and reflects even more candlelight, making instant ambience. an added bonus: everyone looks good in candlelight! 
adding in some bouquets of flowers soften this look even more by adding a much needed natural element.

a light neutral color palette, pine cones, a few sprigs of garland clippings,
some tealights in antique jars, and a few linen table runners
 create a table that begs for hours of chatting with
 a big mug of hot cocoa after christmas dinner

if you're brave enough to host your christmas dinner outside this year,
what a beautiful way to do it! rustic, elegant, inviting, add a firepit for warmth and i'd be at this get-together in a heartbeat.

what theme will you do for your christmas table this year?
