The publishers of Zara Home They are an inexhaustible source of inspiration. This time it is Christmas tables turn. In collaboration with @foodstories, one of the best known cooking and styling accounts on the web, gives us some beautiful images from which we will try to get some good ideas for our tables.
Because, difficult as it may seem replicate Zara Home's outfits, you can always inspire the colors of your dishes, tablecloths or centerpieces.
These are the 4 points inspired by the editorial:
- This year, you will succeed if you decorate your ceiling lamp.
For this a note. The light generated by the table lamps are not the best to create adequate lighting at Christmas. Is better the ambient light scattered around the room accompanied by the candles lit on the table.
So, as mere decorative ornament that is - we refer to the ceiling lamp-, you can wrap it and decorate it with fir garlands, eucalyptus leaves, mistletoe... The best thing about this idea is that it does not overwhelm the table and does not cover the guest in front.
- If you have a nice table lúcela. By pretty table I mean a table with a surface of natural wood, marble, stone ...
If not, choose natural materials for tablecloths such as linen or organic cotton, to achieve this natural effect.
- In dishes everything goes. Crockery and glassware in traditional Christmas colors (in reds or greens) but they also work the white classics. If you opt for white crockery, the color that is best provided by festive napkins, the decoration of the rest of the table or a colored glassware, which is a trend that returns strongly.
- Simple but abundant centerpieces. Nothing heavy and worked centers that occupy the entire table. The tendency is to distribute the decorative ornaments directly by the table.
In my humble opinion, what differentiates the Christmas Eve and Christmas table from other celebrations are the Christmas motifs that adorn the table. This year the most "top" is include branches, garlands or small vases with candles or green branches on the table. In addition to any other decorative ornament. In fact try to include the tree ornaments (Christmas balls, stars) directly to the table.
Is a trend that allows you to try and be flexible with ornaments, separate them etc ... as the table is filled with traditional entrees. Because large centerpieces are always incompatible with shrimp, fried and asparagus trays, Hasn't it happened to you?
