Easy DIY Dinner Table Decoration Ideas Christmas

by Kaylyn J

The holiday season is here, bringing along the dinner parties. If you are the host who loves to implement fresh ideas to festivities, here are some easy DIY dinner table decoration ideas for Christmas.

Festive centerpieces

Centerpieces for festive dining usually include runners and candle holders. Variations of runners can be fancy scarves hiding in your closet and fragrant greenery and blooms from your garden. Lay them out and top up with vibrant berries, bells, or other Christmas ornaments. To light up the table, convert some glassware to candle holders using a dash of glitter. You may skip the candles and use a string of electric lights too!

Table Linen

Apart from fabric napkins and placemats, try something unusual – spread a black table cloth and use a white fabric pen and stencils to design and display your guests’ names. Polished wood slices make great placemats too. Other holiday favorites include knitted, gingham, and burlap table cloths in hues of red, white, gray, icy blue, and beige.


Glass, porcelain, and crystal dinner wares are all-time favorites. Metals such as silver, brass, and copper, when used, add a royal look. Wooden and stone dinnerware are also unique options that complement rustic settings. The choice is yours!

Ornaments and décor

Festive décor for the dinner table is never complete without a chandelier over it. Regular chandeliers are passé. If you plan to do something unusual this year, create the chandelier effect by hanging a wreath over the dinner table. Decorate it with ribbons and electric lights.
