Christmas Table Layouts Using Versatile Pieces

Crazy fact: American’s are spending around 6 billion dollars a year on Christmas. Mind blown. Rather than forking out an arm and a leg on specific pieces for your Christmas table layouts, invest in a few versatile pieces that can be used all year round.

After all, you can only use that sparkly, Santa-embellished table runner for a few days. Plus: you’ve already spent enough money on presents, food and decoration. It’s time to give that poor wallet a rest!

Here are some stunning Christmas table layouts that consist of versatile pieces…

For some people, reindeer embellishments, glitter and an overdose of red just scream tacky. If you’re one of those people who enjoys the more refined things in life, this simple table layout embraces the holiday season without screaming ‘SANTA’.

Best of all, it’s made up of stunning, minimalist pieces that can be used to uplift your dining table every single day of the year.

Recreate this table by adorning your table with a clean, white table cloth. Next, add a neutral runner with a metallic sheen to make it just a little bit special. Add neutral placemats and dot with cream and white plates. Finally, create a centerpiece that looks like it has been taken from nature itself. Dot glass candle holders in amongst pine branches for something that is undoubtedly festive.

The best part? All of these pieces can be used again! Well, apart from the pine leaves, but you are likely to get these for free.

If you would like to embrace red in your Christmas table layouts, why not opt for flowers? Although red flowers, such as holly, are inevitably Christmassy, red floral pieces have the versatility to be used all year round too! A red table runner could be perfect for a Spring tea party, whereas red placemats are a must have for Summer bohemian decor.

Get this holly jolly look by teaming a white table cloth with an eye-catching, red floral table runner. Add white candles and an abundance of red flowers to create a striking centerpiece. If you would like more of a contrast, evergreen leaves and fircones will add the Winter outdoors to your table.

Dot every guests seat with a red floral placemat and top white napkins with red present bows. Keep cutlery and wine glasses plain to stop it from becoming too cluttered.

Who ever thought to use a mirror as a table runner here is some sort of decor Einstein! This dreamy table layout looks like it’s been sprinkled with stardust and, luckily, the majority of these pieces can be used again!

To make your Christmas dinner guests all starry eyed, start by layering up your table with a plain, white table cloth. Next, add a long, rectangular mirror. Please note: ensure this is in the center of the table, no one wants to catch a glimpse of themselves eating Christmas dinner.

Add metallic silver placemats and top with white plates. Now for the fun part! Sprinkle stars and snowflakes evenly across your table cloth. Add an abundance of silver candle holders and two large silver vases. Fill your vases with ivy and top with candles. Next, recreate this with mini vases of ivy on every placemat. We are not exactly sure how to recreate that hanging garland, but if you manage it, you rock!
