Unique Colors Added To Your Holiday Tablescape

You don’t have to stick to the normal ivory or neutral tone china set for your plate setting. Try adding a fun color or design to give a pop of accent to your display. Though this tablescape is a very warm color scheme, the plates are in a marbled blue design and create a unique combination on the table.

Ditch the Normal Candles and Go Bold

You’ve probably grown up with your grandparents or parents pulling out the tall candle sticks for the family gatherings, but they probably are pulling out a collection of whites, tans or even pale shades of colors. Try going bold with all black candlesticks like this tabletop shows. They are captivating while still pairing well with mostly any color scheme your decide to go with for your dinner party. With this warm toned setting, the black adds an extremely classy aspect and the array of holders complement the eclectic vibe.

Splurge on a Floral Arrangement

One of the most important aspects of a picturesque tabletop display is the florals. While you could go and buy blooms from your local market, we recommend contacting your local florist and having them work their magic for your vision. Leave it to the professions to bring together a gorgeous centerpiece for your dinner! Many Heart of NC Weddings florists not only do wedding florals, but will pull together gorgeous floral arrangements for any celebrations.
