Christmas Table Setting Decorations – A Christmas wreath laid down the middle of the table can be the beginning of a perfect centerpiece. It may be decorated with any object you may want to use as a theme. If you have no theme in your mind other than something special, then ribbons and bows can always arrived at the rescue. Inside the wreath, place a large candle or several tapers. The tapers can be the same height or differing heights. The choice is yours to make. Just make certain that the flames or hot wax usually do not come in contact with anything that could cause a fireplace. I was at a dinner party once where that happened. We certainly had a lively Christmas party that night!
Hurricane lanterns placed in a row down the center of the table can take the place of a traditional centerpiece. Stemware filled with beads, glass marbles, nuts, berries or any small festive items can be used as well. You can use themed pieces to decorate in between. We will use Christmas bells as our example of a theme. Bells can be purchased in packages or they may be purchased already put on wire. If they are on wire, they can be covered around the base of the hurricane lanterns, you might as well connect them to ribbon and wrap the ribbon round the lanterns. Long strands of ribbon and beads can flow around the decorations.
