Dressing up Your Dining Room for the Holidays

Dressing up Your Dining Room for the Holidays

The entertaining bug seems to happen around the fall and winter months. Changing leaves and seasonal produce inspire our menus, our minds, and our home décor.

Decorating seasonally doesn’t have to break the bank or even take up a lot of your time. There are many simple ways to decorate your dining room for the holidays that deliver stunning results.

Here are four quick and easy tips on how to dress up your dining room for the holidays.

Tip 1 – Decorate Your Chairs

Want to make a big holiday statement in a small way? Decorating your chairs with festive garlands can be a great way to dress up your dining room for the holidays. Simply tie your ribbon on choice (garland, tinsel, burlap) around the back of your chair slip covers and voila – festive magic.

Tip 2 – Create Your Table Setting

Your table is the first thing your guests will see when they enter your dining room. Be sure to use your finest china and layer them from dinner plate to salad bowl. Have a water glass and a wine glass handy at each place setting. Set down your cutlery on cloth napkins for an elegant look.

Fill hurricane vases or an ornate bowl with frosted pinecones, glittering bulb ornaments, or twinkle lights for the perfect centerpiece. Embellish with faux pine branches, holiday wreaths, greenery and shimmering candles for a seasonal and stylish table setting.

Having a bar tray nearby filled with glasses and drink options is a practical and efficient way to avoid multiple trips back to the kitchen.

Tip 3 – Set the Mood

Soft music playing in the background of your dining room can change the whole atmosphere of your space. Play your favorite season tunes or opt for instrumental or orchestral music in the background of your next dinner party for some holiday ambiance.

Tip 4 – List Your Menu

Having a dinner menu nearby for guests to look at is going to add a luxe appeal to your dining room. Use an oversized embellished chalkboard frame on the wall or place fancy printed menus on top of each place setting for a restaurant-style menu that tells your guests exactly what’s for dinner.

Dressing up your dining room for the holidays doesn’t have to cost a fortune.With these simple tips, your dining room will be transformed from an eating area to a warm and festive space. Have some decor ideas of your own? Share with us @marmolexportusa.
