When decorating your home for the Christmas holiday, we always give the biggest attention to the front yard and the living room, but what about the dining room? The Christmas dinner is an enjoyable part in the Christmas day and it will be great to serve it in a festive surroundings. Decorating the dining room for the Christmas dinner is a great way to make the day even more memorable. There are many ways to decorate your dining room for the holiday season including the dining table, mantel piece, and the lights. Here are some top ideas to decorate the dining room.
– Bring the outside in with the scent of seasonal foliage. Think pine and eucalyptus sprigs tied to the back of your dining chairs, or bunches of berries and wreaths hung from or placed on the mantelpiece. It is better to have a real fire, but if you don’t have it, a fireplace filled with cones, logs, and a coating of synthetic snow will look festive. Or you can stagger church candles at different heights for a glowing alternative.
– Subtle lighting is a great way to enhance the festive mood. If you have an overhead chandelier, you can use it to enhance the look as it’s the perfect thing to dress. Adorn it with bunches of baubles or draped ribbons to bring it centre stage.
– The table is the centerpiece of any holiday dinner, so make it shine with special details like festive linens, unique place cards, and beautiful accessories. For an elegant dinner party, keep your table pared back and stick to a minimal color scheme. Whites, silver, mirror and glass – all dotted with seasonal greenery – will keep things simple and stylish. Also, it is a good idea to put a classy floral centerpiece but keep it low to allow your guests to see each other obviously across the table. To enhance the Christmas decoration, affix wired ribbon to chair backs and hang simple decorations, or place a striking bauble on each plate and tie cutlery with a ribbon and sprig of mistletoe. Santa salt and pepper shaker are also a very nice choice to bring the Christmas spirit into your dining table.
– Give attention to the little details to master the dining room’s transformation for the Christmas holiday, for example, remove regular artwork or wall hangings, and hang Christmas art instead. You can also try emptying dishes and containers of their regular contents and substituting with sparkly ornaments of varying shapes and sizes.
