Let’s be honest. Sometimes, we can feel overwhelmed decorating for Christmas. Some people have Christmas themes in their homes. Others have colors, styles, or collections that help them pull together a certain look that they’re going for.
But if we’re not careful. All of it can feel like more work. If feels more like a job and less like joy.
My coffee table has enough going on with the many colors and texture. So, as much as I like to keep it simple, I don’t want to feel like I’m limited on what I can do.
In any case, I think there are three things that you can always add that spiffy up your space for Christmas, and this includes your coffee table.
SOMETHING METAL WILL ALWAYS GLAM THINGS UP A BIT.
The geometric piece that I’ve included on my coffee table was something I already had. It had been in my office. It’s not gold, and it’s not silver, which makes it easy to go with either. The ornaments also add some glam.
It’s sort of a non-descript metal that isn’t trying to be a celebrity piece.
CANDLES HAVE A TENDENCY TO RELAX THE MOOD AND HELP US SLOW DOWN SO WE ENJOY THE SEASON.
This is a set of faux candles that my mother gave me for Christmas. When lit, they look pretty close to the real thing, and they won’t burn your house down. They even feel waxy to the touch.
They came in a set of three and are battery operated. You could turn them on, and enjoy a glass of wine.
FREE GREENERY AND SOMETHING NATURAL IS A MUST.
One of the easiest things to do is bring nature inside. It doesn’t more than the time that it takes you to find what you need outside, grab something to showcase it on, and arrange it so that it adds to the mood.
We have plenty of pine trees in our yard and a few evergreens. Initially, there were only pine combs, and there were only three, which were left over from last Christmas. This year, I added more, plus the greenery.
A SPLASH OF COLOR KEEPS IT FUN AND ACTS AS A CENTERPIECE FOR THE TABLE.
These were broken ornaments. If you look closely at the bottom two, you can see that they are broken. I’m sure that I could fix them. But why bother.
It’s easier to just throw them on a stack of Christmas plates. They’re easier to enjoy, and they don’t get lost in the sea of ornaments on the tree. Because they’re in the center of the table, they act as the centerpiece.
Finally, they’re all in the same color family. That keeps it from looking too busy or fussy.
