You don’t need to be Martha Stewart to put together a fabulous Christmas table. A little creativity, some supplies and inspiration from these amazing Christmas table setting ideas should make your holiday modern, merry and bright.
1. Use fruit to deck out the Christmas table setting
Pomegranates, pears, apples, lemons or grapes can all be beautiful (and edible) accessories. Choose a color theme and layer the color in different sizes and textures to make your holiday table unique. It’s an inexpensive way to create the perfect Christmas table setting. No need to store it until next year – just have the fruit for dessert!
2. Decorate your dining chairs for Christmas
Add a little holiday cheer to the backs of your chairs. Use ribbon, or hang a wreath, ornament or name tag to each chair. Or even better, give all your guests angel wings!
3. Be glad for plaid

6. Tie up your Christmas table setting like a present
Ribbon is an inexpensive way to decorate your Christmas table. When choosing one, look for wired ribbon, which makes it easier to bend and fold it into shape.

7. Decorate using your glass bowls and serving stands
Create an impressive tower of gorgeousness by using glass hurricanes, vases, jars, cake stands or glass bowls and fill them with your favorite objects. Or make a modern terrarium by choosing an unusually shaped candle holder and adding botanical elements to it.
