Vary the Heights of Your Christmas Table Decorations

Ok, here's my first tip start by varying the heights of your Christmas table decorations. What I mean by this is have some tall items on your table like large vases or candle sticks, mixed with shorter items like small candles, and cute décor and some that are somewhere in between. This will instantly add interest and depth to your table. Take look at these beautiful table setting below to see how they used this tip to create a Christmas masterpiece.

Create Interest With Layers

My next tip is to layer everything. In my opinion this is the most fun step because you can go shopping and start to plan how everything will go together. To add plenty of interest pick different patterns and textures with your table runner, placemats, charging mats, napkins, plates and place cards. Get some inspiration by checking out these gorgeous layered Christmas place settings below.

Incorporate Patterns Into Your Christmas Table Decorations

Adding patterns to your table décor is another great way to make a statement. One of my favorite patterns this year is buffalo plaid in black and white with red. This pattern looks great with Christmas table decorations especially if you like the farmhouse style. Speaking of that if you do like the farmhouse style you should also check out this post-

Use Natural Elements in Your Christmas Table Decorations

Incorporating natural elements into your table décor is a great way to take it up a notch. Pinecones look amazing as Christmas table decorations as do greenery. An easy way to do this is to take some clipping from your Christmas tree, hit up or local craft store or maybe even your backyard. Check out the tables below for inspiration.
