Let’s set a cozy round Christmas table! Of all the tables I set, Christmas tables are my favorite. And in all the years of setting Christmas tables, I’ve set only a few round ones! I have great tips for setting a round table that is not only beautiful with the glow of Christmas lights but also feels intimate and inviting!
I’m setting a round table this Christmas!
Today’s Christmas table is all about the sparkle and warmth of candlelight!
Setting a round table is no different than setting any other table in most ways!
Here are a few tips for setting a beautiful Christmas table no matter what shape. Let’s begin with the place setting…
- make each place setting its own little work of art!
- give each person enough “elbow room” at the table
- add something beautiful or interesting at each place setting
- give guest time to enjoy the table by sitting them down at the table to serve a libation before any of the plates and decorations are taken away
I kept the colors of this round Christmas table quite light and added a little touch of festive red and green with the monogram on the napkin and the seeded eucalyptus.
Seeded eucalyptus is so accessible at our local grocery stores and it is a favorite of mine! And it adds a pretty, frilly addition to a table.
The centerpiece of this round Christmas table is a mix of trees and lights and snow!
This tall tree in a snowy glass cylinder is the center of the Christmas table and two large candles in glass hurricanes flank the white tree.
A string of fairy lights meanders around the center of the table adding tiny points of golden light to the centerpiece.
Mercury glass votives are my favorite! And they glow with candlelight on this snowy table!
A string of mercury bead garland curls around the candles and trees in the center of the table.
Here are a few tips for creating a centerpiece on a round table.
- make a statement in the center of a round tablescape, this will be your focal point
- gather other things like candles around the focal point of the table
- keep the centerpiece from spilling into the place settings
Christmas is the time for a table to sparkle and glow! I hope your holiday table is full of Christmas lights!
