Wine Cellar Inspirations: Setting A Wine-Themed Christmas Table

December 14th, 2016

Be it Christmas lunch or dinner, one thing’s for sure – we all want to make our tables look smashing for our guests. And if you’re going to have winos over this holidays, what better way to impress them than having a wine-themed Christmas table setting. Here are a couple of concepts you’d definitely want to try out this season:

Wine-themed holiday setting

The table cover…

Let’s start off with the obvious – the table cover. We always recommend going for a minimalist color and design because you wouldn’t want the table cover to overshadow the other elements in your table setting such as the dinnerware, centerpiece, and of course, the stemware for the wines you’re going to pour. Stick to neutrals like off-white, dove gray, or a gorgeous champagne hue. But soft tones like blush pink, powder beige, and smoky blue are also a thumbs-up. If you want bolder colors like garnet red, royal blue, or forest green, that’ll work as well. But we suggest staying away from prints and patterns that will make the table look like there’s too much going on.

The dinnerware and stemware…

This is, without a doubt, one of the most important, if not the most important element in your table setting. That would of course, include the cutlery! You don’t need to go for something so expensive and elaborate though. If you want to exude that elegant appeal reminiscent of the wine period in Europe, go for plain designs with just small accents that complement your table cover. You can also go the unconventional route and instead of the usual china or porcelain, try Italian stoneware pieces. These have a bit of a rustic touch but will still give your table a classy feel. As for cutlery, you can never go wrong with silver pieces.

The centerpiece…

This is the part where you can really play around and be creative. You can actually make your own centerpiece by recycling stuff like wine bottles and corks. For example, get different-sized transparent glass vases, fill them with wine corks and top with floral arrangement. Or grab an old wooden wine box, line it, and fill to the brim with flowers and fruits. Another fantastic idea would be to paint different sized empty wine bottles, put them all together, and stick holly branches and twigs painted in snowy white inside.
