Candles And Community
There's a reason candles are the mainstay of any elevated dinner party set up - and even more so when it's a part of a Christmas dinner table! The perfect additions for blanketing your space in a warm and welcoming glow, the ambience of any dining space is instantly elevated when you light a candle - or three. The gentle flickering flames will provide softly-diffused light, allowing you and your guests to dine in an elegant quietude! We absolutely love this Get Jiggy candle from SkynSin, with its fig, coconut, and cedarwood fragrance for that sprinkle of seasonal cheer. Don't forget to also check out these signature scent candles from Nyala Kraf Lilin!
Pro tip: Choose candles with natural fragrances that will complement your dishes for the night! They might not be edible, but can still add to the olfactory senses of a grand, well-prepared meal!
As with fashion and various other aspects of life and style, layering on decorations is not a new concept in home decor and table setting ideas. At the Christmas dinner table, it makes perfect sense to pepper on the layers - pun 100% intended. This means you should feel free to add trays into the line up of decorations for your dining table and play them off against other different surfaces like plates and platters. Use them to hold dishes, fruit, snacks, sides, drinks, utensils, napkins, or various other accessories.
