Lights, Camera, Decorate! Holiday Decor that’s Picture Perfect

You know the drill. The table is set, guests are arriving, and out come the smartphones! It’s time to sparkle and shine! We’ve culled some creative ideas from HGTV to inspire your holiday decor.

 

Add a pop of color with unique floral displays. The Original Los Angeles Flower Market in DTLA has an amazing selection of floral supplies, decorations, and accent pieces to brighten up every room.

Accent with Textiles

 

Introduce a splash of shimmer by tossing silk elements into your decor mix to create a warm and elegant atmosphere. Velvets, chenille and silk work beautifully together to create a rich, luxurious feel. If your larger pieces of furniture are a more neutral color palette, use colorful textiles to energize your room.

 

Set a Rustic Table

 

Bring a rustic yet elegant look to your holiday table with wool, knits, fresh greens, and woodsy elements. A woven placemat adds rich color and texture to each setting. Don’t be afraid to mix and match silverware, plates and glasses. Serve soup in simple wooden bowls, follow with a salad on a delicate ironstone plate and finish with dinner on a square wooden plate. A crystal goblet adds a touch of elegance.

 

Go Classic with Silver and White

 

Forget traditional red and green-this season try a silver and white tablescape. Neutral and elegant, silver and white can be used for all your winter entertaining. Fill a large ironstone tureen with steaming soup as a gleaming centerpiece. Sparkling silver and white ornaments, twinkly snowflakes, silvery birds, mercury glass, and votives add glitter and glam when scattered amidst fresh cut greenery.

 

Experiment with Paper Products

 

Use antique sheet music to create a sophisticated placemat that’s sure to delight the music lovers on your guest list. Tear two connected sheets out of a music book and spread open at each place. Top a silver charger with an ironstone dinner plate, then a silver bread plate. Roll a white linen monogrammed napkin in a simple silver ring. Look for antique and vintage sheet music at thrift stores, flea markets, and online auctions. According to HGTV, these pieces were all purchased from thrift stores and yard sales, proving a fine table doesn’t have to cost a fortune!

 

All-Natural Fillings for Clear Glass Ornaments

 

Bring texture and color to your Christmas tree or balcony with a grouping of clear glass ornaments filled with everyday organic materials. Clear glass ornaments can be filled with just about anything, from dried fruit to moss, branches, lavender, cinnamon sticks and bark. For this fun DIY project, you’ll need clear, fillable glass or plastic ornaments in various shapes, string, yarn, sisal rope or twine, scissors and push pins. Follow step by step instructions from HGTV’s Brian Patrick Flynn here.
