Striking Holiday Accessories for Dining Decor – Tablescape Ideas
Entertaining for the holidays is an opportunity to create an ambiance of festivities for your family and guests. While it can be alot of work, its also a chance to convey the message ‘you are important to me, and I value you’, essentially, a labor of love.
If you are planning to host for the holidays, now might be a good time to stock up on your
holiday tabletop needs. Here you’ll find some very striking accessories for your holiday dining tablescape, that will add pizzazz for all your hard work.
If at all possible, decorate as much of your tablescape the night before. Don’t leave everything to the last minute, and it becomes a stressful, need-to-get-this-overwith-fast thing. Make it special for you while you are doing this. Light some candles, if you drink wine, sip on a glass, put on your favorite, festive holiday music. Think about those who will be eating at your table, cultivate a thankful attitude toward each one. Consider adding a small, handwritten note to each one, communicating what they’ve meant in your life (this could be done in advance).
Of course, making a beautiful centerpiece is an option for those that are inclined to do so, or purchasing a centerpiece is also an idea, another option is to decorate a special dessert and allow that to be a centerpiece (see a photo below to see an example). Make sure that it is something you find pleasing to the eye.
If you use candles, be sure to use un-scented candles, you don’t want the scent of a candle competing with the scent of the food.
