Christmas dinner decorating ideas

When it comes to decor, simple doesn’t have to mean boring! Case in point – here are 2 super easy, yet affective holiday decorating ideas. (You can also switch up the colors & accents to make these work for any type of occasion!)

Idea #1 – Ribbon Chair Accents
You’ll need extra-wide ribbon for this look… preferably in satin, which still lays nicely when tied and gives a pretty sheen. Add a fun “centerpiece” to the ribbon – such as the pinecones, pine needles, and jingle bell pictured here – or you favorite ornaments.

Mix it up: For New Year’s Eve dinners, use silver or gold ribbon with blow horns & disco ball ornaments!

Idea #2 – Ribbon-Tied Flatware Displayed in Glasses
This is a really cute idea for a buffet-style dinner party or brunch because these little sets look especially cool when you line several of them up in a contemporary row. Simply tie flatware together with a small, festive ribbon & place in tumblers or juice glasses. Use colorful and/or patterned glasses to get the most impact from this look!
