Everyone wants their family to enjoy the Christmas tree. The problem is, small children sometimes want to enjoy the tree a little too much. Just like the family cat, Christmas trees do not enjoy babies pulling their limbs. The cat might hiss, but the tree might fall. Christmas tree safety is something to consider when the wee ones are not quite old enough to fully understand “no.” Or in the case of my children, just pretend not to hear it.

Your Christmas table setting doesn’t have to be elaborate or traditional to be elegant. Set a contemporary tablescape for a sophisticated holiday scene that’s simple yet strikingly stylish. Check out our Christmas table decorating ideas for some sparkling inspiration.

Pick a Pretty Palette

Instead of the classic Christmas combination of red and green, get creative with bold, vivid colors. Whether you love electric purple, robin egg blue, or Crayola orange, decorating with an unconventional palette adds extra excitement to your holiday table.

Layering various shades of the same color is a great way to achieve a rich, well-defined look. Replicate this pink-hued setting by placing a pink runner on a black table top or over a black tablecloth. Build up the theme with color-coordinated dinner candles and napkins, and mixing in pink salad plates with fine white china. Clear stemware and glass candle holders, along with small silver table accents, help enhance the impact of colorful pieces.

For a mod and minimalist look, go with black and white plates, silver cutlery, and white candles. Spice things up with napkins and paper-craft accents with graphic patterns. Neon yellow soup bowls or goblets bring a festive pop of color and flair to this monochromatic scheme.

Select a Sensational Centerpiece

As we’ve mentioned before, centerpieces are essential to a beautiful tablescape but are sometimes the last item on many holiday to-do lists. Instead of a lavish traditional centerpiece, opt for one that’s fun and easy to make.

Play around with scale and space to create a dramatic centerpiece, like the one shown in the image above. First, set colored candles in varying heights on a mirrored or metallic table runner. Then, use varying lengths of nylon fishing line to hang polished ball ornaments from the chandelier.
