Pink Christmas Table Décor
Your Christmas table décor doesn’t need to be filled with red and green to be considered festive. And while pink Christmas décor might not scream “Happy Holiday’s,” it can add a fun and softer element to your dining table if executed correctly.
An easy place to start when decorating your Christmas table in this non-traditional colour pallet is by swapping out your red details with pink. Any greenery you had before, like garlands or wreaths, will still work when paired with pink Christmas décor, and this way you won’t have to redesign your whole table.
Candle sticks are a simple, yet classic way to bring pink into the mix and they look especially festive nestled amongst a stretch of garland. In addition to candle sticks, JYSK Canada’s glittering pink mini Christmas trees add a modern touch while also creating depth to your Christmas table décor. To complete the look, fill in any empty spaces with Christmas tree baubles in pink and natural tones like wood, silver, or gold.
You don’t need to decorate with typical Christmas colour pallets to ensure your home looks festive this season. With pink Christmas décor from JYSK, you can add a modern touch to your Christmas table décor without sacrificing your personal style.
Neutral Christmas Table Décor
The “less is more” approach is common when going for a traditional Scandinavian aesthetic. Christmas table décor that uses natural elements and neutral tones helps to create a minimalistic atmosphere without appearing boring.
One way to add natural elements to your Christmas table décor is to utilize a strand of garland as a table runner. You can even go a step further by wrapping a strand of warm-toned lights throughout the garland, providing you and your guests with a comforting glow. Other ways to bring in naturalism are with pinecones, holly, or herbs such as rosemary or sage, for that Scandinavian Christmas style display. Whites or soft grey accents can be utilized through textiles like linen napkins or placemats. Our faux fur TAKS seat cushions also work to create additional texture and comfort. These neutral tones mixed with greenery create a natural vibrancy that effortlessly promotes a festive warmth. Use metal candle stick holders, aligning the material with your cutlery, for pops of brightness throughout the table.
Dreaming of a white Christmas? Though it may not provide the same festive flare as green and red, white is an equally prominent holiday colour and, when utilized to it is full potential, can elevate your Christmas table décor.
Create the perfect winter wonderland and embrace simplicity with the use of white dinnerware and accessories. Garlands with snow flocked pine needles, eucalyptus with white berries, or miniature pine trees with white pots are great ways to add in greenery, all while keeping within this monochromatic theme. Using flat gold or bronze toned cutlery is an elegant way to add warmth to your Christmas table décor. Bring the metal tones into the center by using candlestick holders or add various sized sleigh bells loosely around or throughout the greenery. This will add depth and charm to the overall appearance.
Cozy Cabin Christmas Table Décor
Nothing screams Christmas quite like a cozy cabin setting. Buffalo check Christmas tablecloths and table runners make for a great base to build off when creating a classically cozy Christmas atmosphere.
The black and white buffalo pattern is timeless and has become a staple when it comes to seasonal décor, though too much of it can be overwhelming. That is why when using this pattern, it is important to remember to layer your table setting accessories accordingly. Natural elements, like wood or burlap, contrast beautifully and often work well as placemats atop a buffalo check tablecloth. Incorporate red ribbon by tying it around napkins or vases for pops of colour. Gold cutlery will keep the warmth and maintain a cozy atmosphere, while plain white or black dinnerware makes for simple breaks throughout the patterned tablecloth. The addition of holiday greenery, pinecones, or holly work well to bring together that cabin environment indoors. Play around with JYSK Canadas wooden holiday signs for more visual intrigue!
