Between all of the cooking, baking and entertaining, decorating the dining room table for holiday guests tends to get thrown on the backburner.
But as first impressions can be last impressions, presentation is vital - and can actually be an art form.
As designing the perfect tablescape can seem a bit overwhelming, online magazine Lonny has developed a few simple ways to work with the materials and space you already have to create a show-stopping dinner table this holiday season that will leave a lasting impression.
Follow these steps to create amazing tablescapes:
• Consider a color theme: choose your color theme carefully, remembering that sometimes a burst of color carefully arranged on a neutral background is all you need to create a compelling tablescape.
• Use local materials: combine mementos and local materials in order to personalize and create your very own and distinct tablescape.
• Mix styles and patterns: you'll create a powerful style statement by combining bold patterns and prints. This technique is fun and you'll love the results.
• Try one standout piece: build a tablescape around
