Christmas table: the most beautiful ideas to decorate it with elegance

“Waiting for the holidays is itself a holiday” How could we say otherwise? 

The philosopher Gotthold Ephraim Lessing was right: decorating our house for the holidays immediately carries us into Christmas atmosphere. It makes us imagine interiors where the light of the candles delicately dances, luxurious fabrics decorate the table, voices and perfumes join to fill a warm, quiet world.

We can call it “interior fitting” but actually it means looking at our daily interiors in a new way, to discover they are more lively, brighter and dreamier

You’d better gather some ideas in advance to choose the right elements to create this atmosphere.

You will find unique, elegant proposals, from tablecloths to centrepieces, in an exciting vortex of ideas to give shape to. 

Touching elegance: which tablecloth shall I use at Christmas?

If you like to create a precious, sophisticated Christmas atmosphere, tablecloth becomes the key of elegance. That is why choosing the right model to dress your table for your Christmas lunch is like choosing a dress for a very special occasion: it must be impeccable and every particular must show care and dedication.

The tablecloth in plain colour is among the most elegant, contemporary proposals. It is always refined, especially when colours recall tradition, as green or red do. Using it with a runner with a Christmas decoration can be the right idea to renew the table without disregarding tradition. 

A white tablecloth decorated with festive motives is timeless: stars, Christmas characters and objects which show the magic of a holiday when the table stops being an object and becomes a place, family, house.

The last recommendation: choosing comfortable, functional fabrics is fundamental. Water-repellent, stain-resistant tablecloths permit to combine beauty and practicality. This way you can create a Christmas table where every detail adds a touch of elegance without compromising versatility

Some ideas for an elegant Christmas table: the centrepiece

The centrepiece is a fundamental element to create an elegant Christmas table

But, what to put in a Christmas centrepiece

Candles are a must. With their warm, captivating light, they are both decorative elements and real “atmosphere designers”

Golden candles can add a touch of elegance both when used alone and when used in combinations with natural elements as fir branches, red berries, etc …

White or coloured candles can help create a joyous, funny Christmas centrepiece where tradition reveals its most cheerful aspect. 

Decorative objects which capture the spirit of holidays are then perfect to embellish the Christmas table: Santa Claus, with his happy smile, toy soldiers in parade gear, Christmas houses and decorated trees can become the protagonists of your story at the table. 

H2: Decorating the Christmas table: little secrets for great results

Follow these recommendations to enhance your centrepiece and all the decorations on your Christmas table:

  • Put the decorative objects in a strategic way, creating a pleasant and evocative combination. The diversity of colours, shapes, sizes will provide a merry touch, turning your Christmas table into a small enchanted village;
  • Don’t forget to coordinate the colours and style of the centrepiece with the other furnishing objects. Either when you choose a traditional or a modern style, make sure every element perfectly matches the others.  
  • Be inspired by Christmas tradition but don’t be afraid to add your personal touch. You can choose decorative objects which reflect your style, perhaps using unusual colours or elements which can astonish (if you want some recommendations about special ornaments, read also “Christmas decorations for your house: 6 exclusive ideas you will want to have at once”).

Decorating the Christmas table becomes an art, a form of creativity that goes beyond the simple arrangement of tablecloths and centrepieces.

It means taking care of your guests, sharing special moments, creating unforgettable memories. Beauty and harmony merge at the table. This way, every moment turns into a cuddle for your heart.
