Creating the Perfect Holiday Table

Creating the perfect holiday table centerpieces can be as important as cooking the turkey itself. You can make your guests feel special by providing a delicious feast and a festive table, but decorating doesn’t have to be difficult.

How do you come up with the perfect holiday table decorations?

Deciding on this year’s settings can be as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 1: Decide on your color scheme. Within the fall months, many people turn to brown, gold and orange. Why not branch out? Try something new like teal or purple…heck, you might even have linens in these alternative colors already.

Step 2: Determine the number of place settings and plan space accordingly. Set your table with plates and serving dishes, then determine how much room can be dedicated to décor. Having enough room to eat can result in a continued conversation and more enjoyable holiday family meal.

Step 3: Pick your centerpiece. The focal point should be in the center of the table and can include pumpkins, candles or perhaps a glass vessel. Live flowers and decorative ornaments can even be sent home with guests as party favors (and make clean-up a breeze!).
