O come, all ye faithful Christmas decorators to our list of our favorite and easy-to-accomplish Christmas table decorations. There’s so much to do during the holiday season–from planning Christmas dinner menu to finding the perfect Christmas presents for everyone on your list–that setting the table shouldn’t be stressful. It is the season for quality time with family and fun festivities after all.
Your Christmas tablescape should reflect the joy and magic of the holiday season without any fuss. It doesn’t have to be over the top or expensive. Just like all of the other Christmas decorating ideas we’ve shared this season, these centerpieces, Christmas place settings, floral arrangements, and runners are easy to throw together. In fact, many can be done while guests are snacking away on their favorite Christmas appetizers. You can even get the kids involved by having them make a festive gingerbread house to serve as the centerpiece of your Christmas tablescape. (Or, you can get them out of your hair by distracting them with your latest Elf of the Shelf scheme.)
So, pull out the placemats, spruce up the holiday flowers and blast your favorite Christmas tunes: It’s time to decorate! From classic red-and-green themes, to a subdued Scandinavian-inspired evening, to all the Shiny Brite colors we promise that there is a Christmas table decoration idea on our list that will surely liven up even the Grinchiest of guests.
