12 Stunning Modern Christmas Table Settings

December 16, 2017

I’m cooking on Christmas Day this year and I’m looking for table setting inspiration.

I love the simplicity of these twelve simple but clever ideas. Any one of them will turn a basic table into a space where special memories will be made.

I’m excited to choose one or maybe even combine two different looks. I think I’ll be leaving my red tablecloth in the drawer though, and opting for a pale grey or crisp white setting with green accents.

Brass and gold colored flatware is a huge trend this year. I’m not sure if I’m ready to commit — unless I find an old set at my local antique market.

I’ll be keeping my eyes open for a bare branch I can bring home and dress up. I’m also toying with the idea of stringing outdoor lights inside this year. Fun, fun, fun!
