Peacock-Theme Christmas Table Decorating Ideas

SS05958
Entertaining extraordinaire Jennifer Sbranti shows us how to combine brilliant blues and gorgeous greens for a super chic holiday party.

Center of Attention

For the centerpiece, place a wreath made of peacock feathers flat-side-down on the center of the table. Next, place an oversize glass vase in the center of the wreath. Fill the vase with blue and green ball ornaments. Tuck tall stems of decorative peacock feathers into the vase to create a feather "bouquet."

Tip: Depending on the width of your vase, it may be easiest to put the feather stems in the vase first, and then fill the space around it with the ball ornaments.

Pretty Peacock Palette

Hang aqua, teal, emerald, and lime ball ornaments from silver ornament trees. Peacock feather ornaments add texture and variety to the table.

Birds of a Feather

Fold simple white napkins into "pockets" and tuck a peacock feather into each pocket. Decorate the napkin with a band of ribbon and hot-glue a jewel-tone gem or large crafts rhinestone in the center of the band.

Charming Glasses

Embellish wine or cocktail glasses with the same vase gems or crafts rhinestones used on your napkins. Start by wrapping half of the stem with thin silver ribbon. Tie the ribbon off and snip the edges close to the knot. Then hot-glue your gem or stone onto the ribbon-wrapped portion of the stem.

Peacock Bar

Add height to your display by setting drinks, cocktail napkins, and coasters on a chic tray. Create a pretty backdrop for your bar display with peacock-theme ornaments, feather wreaths, and feather bouquets. Prop feather wreaths up with inexpensive plate display stands.
