Create a rustic table that echoes the unfinished woods and warm tones of a cozy log cabin. Traditional reds and greens are easy to come by with fresh evergreens, red ribbons, and red pillar candles. For a homespun centerpiece, fill unconventional containers, such as this old wooden toolbox, with florist's foam to hold casually mixed greens, candles of alternating heights, and a garland of beads or cranberries.
A table blanketed in white lends sophistication and a sense of occasion to any gathering. Get the look by using clear glass and metallic elements against a backdrop of white table linens and china. An artificial tree spray-painted white, flocked with spray snow, and potted in a galvanized pail makes a modern centerpiece for this table. Lights and star ornaments hung on the tree add another layer of sparkle.
Dainty confections are the inspiration behind this whimsical table setting, from chocolate-brown place mats to sweet pink dots on the plates. For the centerpiece, hard-to-resist dessert pedestals are really metal candlesticks topped with clear glass plates. Fill them with chocolates, candies, cookies, or ornaments to enhance the playful mood.
Create a sweet place setting by sandwiching a round of pink scrapbook paper and a red sticker-dot border between two glass plates. Personalized candies indicate where guests should sit.
Tuck dainty carnations into a slim florist's tube, and slip the tube inside a clear container filled with Jordan almonds for a surprising arrangement.
Go formal without going over the top with a table setting like this one. Small touches of iridescent accents and embellished crisp linens give a fresh yet refined look. Circle a centerpiece of all-white flowers with a border of green and red apple wedges. This arrangement contains pale hydrangeas, seeded eucalyptus, and a handful of strategically placed gold ornaments. Dip the apple wedges in lemon juice to prevent browning.
Red and green apple wedges stand out against the white china backdrop. Dip the apple wedges in lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.
