To help with your tablescape this year, we've gathered our favorite festive trends that go beyond red, green, and your man Santa. These unconventional holiday table settings will create a gorgeous backdrop that will subtly transform your room into a space ready for some much-needed holiday relaxation with friends and family.
Follow these four simple decor trends and everybody will be oohing and ahhing over your holiday table setting.
1. A unique placemat:
You don't have to go traditional with a typical placemat, a sliced old tree stump will take your table setting over the top.
Tartan, checks, plaid, oh my! Use pattern in your table runner or napkins for a little extra flair.
3. Bring the outdoors in:
Add outdoorsy elements such as pine cones and sticks, or even just a simple pine garland to make it feel like you're dining in the woods.
4. Don't do both red and green:
Out with the old Christmas style, in with the new. If you're going to choose the typical holiday colors, choose just one. Combining both colors is a bit over the top, so just choosing one will spread Christmas cheer in a subtle way.
