While decorating for the holidays is all part of the fun, sometimes preparing your home for holiday entertaining can result in unnecessary stress. Instead of worrying about getting it all done by yourself, enlist a few helpful hands and take advantage of the opportunity to spend individual time with a loved one.
Decorating your table for holiday get-togethers is a great project to collaborate on with your mother, daughter or best friend. Whether you’re picking out the perfect place settings or creating your own floral arrangements, you can turn an item on your endless to-do list into quality time together. Here are some ideas for table décor that are simple to create, but are sure to impress.
- Create a mini-gingerbread house village out of graham crackers, icing and various candies. Younger children will have fun putting these together and be proud to display them in the center of your table.
- Construct a festive reindeer scene with these tiny glittered deer. Simply mix them in with some evergreen trimmings and you’ll have a luxe look for less. These evergreen place holders can easily be made from the branches trimmed from the bottom of your Christmas tree and add to the romantic forest feel.
- For an incredibly easy and inexpensive holiday table that still looks elegant, decorate with fresh fruit such as cranberries, apples, oranges, or pears. Take a look at this beautiful table for inspiration.
- Spruce up the kids’ table by using shimmery wrapping paper as a table runner (which doubles as easy cleanup!) and these sweet angels made from paper plates.
