Add personality to your table by adding decorative details. Heirloom salt and pepper shakers, ornaments, unique items that pull together the entire look of your table. I have a large selection of napkin rings and display pieces in my collection that often show up on a holiday table in different ways depending on the overall plan. It can be fun to incorporate meaningful items from family members, like great grandma’s crystal bowl, filled with candy, flowers, or ornaments. Just be sure it all ties in together in theme, color and proportion. Too many different things together will look cluttered and messy. Layer your table carefully, and just like putting on jewelry, if you are not sure, remove a piece. A little decorative detail goes a long way when mixed with the other elements of your table.
Merry Christmas and Happy Decorating!
