Winter Decorations Warm Up Table Settings

In Winter, the instinct is to nest; getting creative with centerpieces provides an easy counterpoint to cold nights. When guests gather at a table that is pleasingly decorated, it makes them feel special.

According to Marion Boland of Right at Home, “creating a centerpiece consisting of glass pieces, metallic silver and sparkle gives your guests an elegant visual and brings sophistication to your gathering.”

Round or large square tables encourage conversation,and clients preferences lean toward more monochromatic color schemes, although bright sparks of color are also attractive.

Shonda Cunningham, of Silver Cricket Designs says, “Garlands running the length of a table, whether really full or a loose arrangement of greenery, are in style and make interacting with other guests effortless.” She incorporates flowers, pine cones, rustic wood and floating candles of different sizes and shapes. “Rare conifers and ornamental pines combined with Lotus pods, dried poppies and star pods add outstanding texture and interest.

Mixed metals—mercury glass in silver, gold or rose gold in different shapes and sizes—complement contemporary homes.”

Agate napkin rings add a magical touch.
