We all want our holiday parties to be pulled together perfectly, down to the last detail-including your table decorations. The best way to ensure that you will have a beautifully decorated party is to hire a professional decorating team and floral expert.
However, it’s always good to have an idea of what you want before you meet with your event decorator, so here are a few ideas of how you could decorate the tables for your holiday event.
Flowers tend to be the first thing people think of when they consider table decorations, and for good reason! Flowers are always in style, whether you are having a holiday party or not. Stick to reds, whites, and greens for Christmas décor; blues and whites for Chanukah; and red, black, and green for Kwanzaa. If you aren’t celebrating any specific holiday, snowy white flowers can offer a winter-wonderland appeal without any affiliations.
Roses may be the easiest flowers to find, but your floral expert will be able to make additional suggestions to make your floral displays into showstoppers.
If you are looking for something new and exciting, consider putting citrus fruits into containers and using them as your decorations. Not only are citrus fruits reasonably inexpensive during the winter, they are also at their most fragrant! The light citrus scent your arrangements put off will help your party to smell fresh and lovely, and the overall clean and modern appearance of the fruit will make your guests marvel at how clever you were to use commonplace fruits to create such beautiful table pieces.
Candles are a lovely and festive way to help light up the room and decorate your tables at the same time. Many event spaces are OK with some open flame candle usage, but others can have liability issues they have to worry about. If your event space has issues with open flames, you still have options with flameless LED candles. Place mirrors under the candles to add more light to the room, or tie cinnamon sticks or holly around the candle base to add a festive feel.
Candies and Sweets
The holidays are one of the best times to let your inner kid come out, and what better way to incorporate a bit of whimsy into your holiday party than to use candies and sweets to create your table decorations? A grandiose gingerbread palace can serve as an impressive centerpiece, or you could go for something more subtle with strategically placed crystal bowls filled with your favorite holiday candies.
However you decide to decorate the tables for your holiday party, be sure to work with your event designer to create the perfect setting for your party.
