Decorating Your Dining Room for the Holidays​

It’s the time of year to spread some holiday cheer! Decorating for the holidays can seem daunting at first, but don’t worry. Our Executive Craftsman team has just the right tips and tricks for decorating your ideal holiday dining room. 

 

Consider centerpieces

 

The Dining Room is where friends and family gather and celebrate during the holiday season. Conversations are held, meals are enjoyed, and memories are made. So why not make sure your centerpieces are just as joyous? You can incorporate a variety of different centerpieces to make your dining room look perfect for your guests. Try tying together a pretty pile of presents with a red ribbon. This will get everyone excited to open up gifts – it’s a great addition! Or what about an elegant glow? Mix and match different candlesticks in the middle of the table to enjoy a festive candlelit meal. Whatever you choose to put at the center of your dining room table, be sure that it isn’t too big or bulky. No one wants to have a conversation with a giant snowflake in front of their face. 

 

Create your holiday color palette 

 

If you’re unsure what to do when it comes to decorating your dining room table for the holidays, stick to this simple holiday color palette: red, gold and green. These classic holiday colors will bring cheer to any room!

 

 Dress it up 

 

When in doubt, dress it up! Take a regular chair for instance. Simply tie a ribbon around the chair and turn it into a seat fit for a King or Queen! Or invest in some fancy napkin holders to add just the right touch to your place setting. 

 

Give it a theme 

 

Want to go the extra mile? Give your dining room a unique theme! Create a winter wonderland following a light blue and silver color palette. You can incorporate fake snow and icicles at the center of the table to make it even better. Or if you have wood floors you can go for a more rustic, cozy theme. Use candles, pine garland greenery, and flowers to give the room a festive, lively feel.

 

Get Creative – and Personal

 

If you really want to wow your guests, get a little bit more personal by making place cards. A roll of brown kraft paper makes for a fun and disposable table runner. You can write the name of each guest on the paper next to their plate and encourage doodling during the meal as well!

 

The holidays are meant to be a fun time of the year where friends and family, can kick back, relax, and genuinely enjoy each other's company. At Executive Craftsman, we adore having the opportunity to create these spaces where you can truly feel at home.
