Pink makes everything prettier! For this year’s holiday tablescape, I went for mixed metallics with a pop of fuchsia. I wanted to try an unconventional color scheme and challenge myself to think beyond traditional Christmas colors.
Here are my best decorating hacks to help you recreate this chic winter wonderland look.
Let It Snow
A roll of fake snow makes an amazing table runner. You may already have some stored with your Christmas decor. It’s not fancy but ends up looking gorgeous on the table. I especially like how it popped against our wood table. The roll I chose had a bit of glitter to add sparkle. I know some people despise having glitter in their home because it gets EVERYWHERE, but I totally embrace it.
Use Extra Ornaments
Ornaments are the easiest decor for your table! Pile them into a clear vase or put them into a pretty bowl and you instantly have a centerpiece. I used a trifle bowl for mine to get some extra height and then scattered a few across the rest of the table. For an elevated look, I’d recommend using ornaments of different sizes and textures.
Another benefit of this design: It’s super easy to modify. If a red and green color scheme is a must-have for you, it’s an easy swap. The pop of color is 100% from the ornaments, so you could try this table in any shade.
Mix and Match
Using five completely different trees is what makes this holiday tablescape interesting. Don’t feel like you need an entire set — mismatched is in! I also don’t subscribe to the rule that you have to choose either silver or gold. I love mixing both because it adds depth.
When you think of your favorite tablescapes, you probably automatically think of flowers. While I normally live for fresh blooms, I decided not to use them here so I could leave the table set all season long. After you do all the work, it’s fun to enjoy the table decor for the whole month of December. Instead of flowers, fill the space with faux garland, candles and other seasonal tabletop decorations.
