Christmas will be here before you know it. Typically, we’d be planning our get togethers and deciding who to invite and what to prepare. Of course, this year, Covid has changed EVERYTHING. No dinners, no gathering and NO typical celebrations. Enter Zoom and intimate family gatherings within your bubble.
BUT. Just because your family gatherings have been drastically reduced and nothing is as it usually is, it doesn’t mean things have to be boring. In fact, they can still be amazing.
So, how do you set the perfect Christmas table?
1. Start with a beautifulcenterpiece
Our centerpiece is simple but pretty. We have a rustic wood box that I made awhile back. The box is filled with vases of greenery, candles, pine cones and Christmas ornaments. There’s just something about the reflection of candle light on the glass vases and ornaments that makes the room seem so cozy.
2. Use some festive linens
These holly placemats are pretty, yet simple. Plain placemats would work well, too. The plaid cloth napkins you see are actually tea towels, but no one will ever know that if you don’t tell them.
3. White dishes for the win!
I love Christmas China but separate sets of dishes for each holiday take up an amazing amount of space. I prefer to use my everyday white dishes and spruce them up with some chargers in Christmas colors.
4. Add an unexpected detail
These sweet little wreaths were found in the Target Dollar Spot last year. Aren’t they cute? I love how detailed they are.
Even though your gatherings this year are far from what you usually plan, they can still be beautiful.
