Christmas is days away, meaning tons of last-minute shopping, present wrapping, and meal planning. While many people may share intimate holidays with significant others or friends, others enjoy hosting large family get-togethers. Regardless of the guest list, you want your Christmas dinner table to be fabulous and festive. Here are the ways others are setting this year’s Christmas table.
Before grocery shopping for the crew, determine the amount of guests that will be sitting around that delicious meal. This will help you decide if you have enough room or if you may need to upgrade. Table rental in Los Angeles is available for extended-family gatherings while smaller shops may have the perfect four-seater for you and your spouse. You’ll want to ensure the table may fit in the house – but if people need to be split up among the home, it’s okay!
The big colors for Christmas this year include the classic red and gold, but bright and bold hues are also hitting the holiday table. Some designers are doing silver and blue, while others are taking different shades of reds and greens in order to create a festive ombre effect. Make sure your food does the same thing! The traditional Christmas foods such as turkey or ham are always a good idea but don’t be afraid to get a little funky. Try roasted Brussels sprouts with quinoa and cranberry for a delicious and innovative side.
When setting this year’s Christmas table, the most important thing to keep in mind is you! This is for your family and friends, and everyone should be comfortable. Add in little tradition from the past – and maybe a few new ones for the future – and have a fun and festive meal!
