A green and brown table can be a welcome departure from the traditional red and green of the season. Stylishly wrapped gifts serve as place cards.
A holiday table with sparkle is as simple as adding low arrangements of red blooms and laying on the crystal stemware. A decorated mantelpiece contributes to the setting without cluttering the table.
Pull that holiday china out of the cupboard and use it often during this festive season. Layer it with your regular china for a lavish look.
Set your table in all blue and white, with accents of silver, for an unexpected touch. This color scheme would work well all the way through New Year's.
If your climate permits, set a lavish table in the garden for a candle lit dinner. And bring your indoor furniture outdoors to make the setting even cozier.
With green as the dominant color, this table is elegant but undeniably festive. A centerpiece of hydrangea blossoms arranged over greenery in the shape of a cake is a surefire conversation starter.
Ornaments make great party favors. A clip-on bird with a feathery tail perches on an overturned compote.
Cranberries aren't just for Thanksgiving. Mounded in a glass bowl, they can serve as a place-card holder.
Blue and white china with fresh yellow roses is a classic combination any time of year. During the holidays, add a touch of red detail and evergreen branches for seasonal notes.
