Simply Sophisticated Holiday Table Décor

Setting your table for the holidays can seem like a chore. However, there are many ways you can transform your dinner table into a beautiful sight for guests to enjoy, without too much fuss. Try these simply sophisticated table décor ideas that will add elegance to your holiday setting.

Add Colorful Foods
Using food can be a simple and visually appealing way to create an attractive setting. Fruits such as pears, oranges and cranberries, or even small pumpkins and gourds, can make lovely centerpieces. Fill a few glass jars or vases with food items that add color to your setting.

Bring the Outdoors Inside
Use what you can from the great outdoors. Complement your centerpiece with twigs, leaves, berries, pine cones, branches and a few ornaments or ribbons to enhance the holiday look. Remember not to overfill your table – less can be more appealing.

Make Place Cards
Handwritten place cards are simple to create and enhance your table with a personal touch. For a more professional look, use thicker paper stock and your home printer.

Light Up the Table
Candles are an inexpensive way to add an elegant touch to your dinner table. Tiny tea lights in small Mason jars can create a simple, stylish look, or try pillar candles inside large, clear jars and arrange nuts or pine cones around the outside. You can also try using a string of white holiday lights and pine branches to add a little winter sparkle.

Remember the Details
Tie your silverware or napkins with a lovely piece of ribbon or twine, then use a few twigs, berries or a cinnamon stick to complete the look. You can also leave candies or mints near each place setting as a gift for your guests. Remember, the smallest details can leave a lasting impression.
