Red and white as elegant Christmas table decoration

Not only as a table decoration red is the absolute classic at Christmas, also on the Christmas tree red baubles are traditional and popular every year. However, for a classy Christmas table decoration, setting the table should start with a tablecloth.

A cloth napkin, table runner or placemat are also textiles that make a Christmas table decoration look elegant and festive. Complementing a simple, noble table decoration also fit red candles, red bows, ribbons and berries.

Gold, silver or copper - the perfect combination with red table decorations

Silver cutlery, gold cutlery or cutlery in copper - no matter what the choice, red goes with any metal color. As a table decoration, gold in combination with red is particularly noble at Christmas. Apart from Christmas, gold cutlery, especially in matte gold, is absolutely popular at this time of year. Silver cutlery is considered classic and of course harmonizes with red table decorations. Compared to silver cutlery, cutlery in copper provides special accents and is considered rather atypical. In connection with the red colors of the Christmas table decoration, copper cutlery sets real eye-catchers, especially if the rest of the table decoration is kept simple, in white and natural tones.

The place plate at Christmas as a real eye-catcher

Why not integrate the plates of the various courses at Christmas in the table decoration? Whether plates made of porcelain, ceramic or wood, if different shapes and colors are placed on top of each other, it immediately creates a more elegant overall picture.

Usually, the place setting begins with a place plate. This can be made of a variety of materials, since it is not eaten from and serves only as a decorative plate. Thus, the material of the plate, can also be taken up in the rest of the table decoration again.

For Christmas, of course, a porcelain dinner plate with silver decor, on which a dessert plate with matching bowl is placed, will fit perfectly. At the same time, white plates with relief look particularly noble, which makes them perfect for a Christmas table decoration. 

Is pink Christmas table decor the new red?

As table decorations, Christmas baubles in these colors are more restrained than red baubles and harmonize wonderfully with wood or natural decorative elements.

Here, the presenters made of acacia wood perfectly match the place settings and complete the stacking look. Last but not least, the candles on the table are lit, which underline the festive mood and set a Christmas decoration eye-catcher with their shape of a fir tree.
