Christmas Inspirations ~ Part III ~ Table Settings


How about some inspiration for some Christmas table
cheer! I've gone for a more modern round up in this
post including the gorgeous display above. The hanging
candle tea lights make for a magical feeling.



Here's to a midcentury modern table setting. Reds and
greens don't always have to be on the tree, in this case
red napkins and green chair pads contribute nicely to a
festive air.


You can use almost anything to be a seat card holder.
Ornaments or something like this miniature deer would
serve very nicely.



All you have to do is throw in some colored bowls and
candle holders with the white ceramic plates to brighten
the table up.


Use your children's Christmas crafts to decorate your table!


A miniature forest in Red with candy and
foiled wrappers really spruce up this table.


Mercury silver can make any table or mantle brighter.


This is a fun and interesting idea...using indoor sparklers
to adorn pomegranates on each place setting to give a
real thrill.



Here's a closer look at that indoor sparkler.


A bowl of limes with slim candles on the far end makes for
a great center piece on a table or mantle. For added cheer,
string up a group of ornaments and drape them across walls
and doors.



Here we pay homage to classic Scandinavian aesthetics.


Not having a formal sit down dinner? How's this for a snack
spread on the coffee table. Great for watching a movie with
guests or just chatting.



Sometimes, you can make a centerpiece very easily by just
taking a cake stand with a glass cover and putting pieces
of your crystal collection or other colorful items inside.



Here's a Christmas setting with an Asian twist.


How about snacks and games?


A group of large ornmanets hung up as a table centerpiece.


Tangerines, limes and other
fruits make for great decor as well.


What a simple but glamorous way of chilling the champagne.

Hope these ideas have given you
a start on your holiday planning.

Delurking here.. Love you blog!!
Btw, I loved the fourth pic. And the white appartment!! That one is seriously chic. Maybe you could feature that appartment. I loved how they have stacked the logs in the thin corner alcove.
