12 Ways to Decorate Your Dinner Table this Christmas

If there's one thing I look forward to at Christmas, it's the family get-together around the dinner table. And while many of us do remember to decorate the yard, the Christmas tree and the mantle for the holidays, the dining room table is often overlooked. But personally, I think that decorating the table for a Christmas dinner is a great way to make the day even more memorable. So, with Christmas day just round the corner, here are a few table decoration ideas you could use to make your guests feel the Christmas cheer this year.

Candlelight creates an evocative and soothing ambience for the holidays, fostering a celebratory mood. For more appeal, and to make your guests feel all the more welcome, add garlands around the door frame and over the mantle.
