Whether it is Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any special event that brings a group of people together, it is a time of celebration. A time to sit down for a meal, maybe a bottle of wine, and actually take a moment to relax and enjoy one another’s company. Celebrations can be informal or formal, but the cause for event gives a need for decoration to mark the occasion. And, what better way is there to set the mood than surrounding a table with warm light and seasonal fare?
As we approach this holiday season, we prepare to invite family and friends into our home, and part of preparation is creating a welcoming environment for conversation and good times. To help you out, we have created a list of elements to consider while you are shopping or decorating that will help you create your perfect tablescape. So, starting with pulling a few different pieces from the floor, we wanted to show you how to use these components to create something beautiful.
1. The View
Before you even start putting a centerpiece together, you will need to consider the view. Centerpieces don’t have to be just on tables, they can also go on side tables, buffets, and mantles. If it is going to be on a table though, you want to consider all angles of your centerpiece.
