Decorating your table for Christmas is the crowning touch in creating a festive atmosphere for the holiday. I’ve always loved the color blue and fell in love with Christmas decorating in blue when I saw the elegant Christmas decorating at the flagship store for Heal’s on Tottenham Court road in London. Who knew that blue Christmas decorations ideas could create such elegant Christmas table settings? Read on for some great inspiration on how Christmas decorating in blue can go beyond just blue Christmas ornaments.
Christmas Decorating in Blue
Did you think adding holiday spirit to your house and keep it looking elegant at the same time was an impossible ask? Embrace the dark side – Christmas decorating in blue, dark blue for elegant Christmas decorating.
Throw in liberal splashes of white and gold touches so that you won’t have any traditional relatives who visit swoon at this untraditional color scheme.
Did you notice the rock salt (or snow?) on the mantelpiece above and tables below? I’m not buying the rock salt touch. It looks a little forced to me. Or like you are creating a ring of salt to keep evil at bay like they do in a paranormal horror movies.
Mixed in with all the contemporary touches are traditional nods like painted pinecones and the beautiful royal blue candles set in gorgeous brass candleholders.
Note that the base for this navy blue white and gold extravaganza is solidly grounded on a dark table, dark placemats and dark-stemmed flatware. It’s not just clothes were you can no longer mix blue and black!
Elegant Christmas Decorating No Matter The Size
If you thought elegant Christmas decorating required a large table, the setup at Heals shows both a large scale Christmas party and a more intimate Christmas place settings for four people.
This large dining table with its beautiful iconic Masters chairs is a navy table setting for 12-14 people to sit comfortably.
Assuming you don’t have such a large get-together for Christmas, you can create elegant Christmas table settings for a smaller group of four people. I love the intimacy of a round table and comfortable blue velvet seats that encourage people to linger over their food and engage in long conversations.
Navy Dinnerware for Christmas Place Settings
Navy dinnerware for Christmas place settings can be mixed with white – if you think an all navy table setting is too severe or you want to mix in the odd navy blue plate in with dinner plates you already have.
Yeah, that’s a whole lot of table salt. I just can’t do it. Especially since I know the children in my family will just muck around and use it to spell out words or throw it at each other when an adult isn’t looking.
