Just 3 weeks to go until Christmas arrives.

You’re at the planning stage of thinking about the Christmas dinner menu and, of course, your tablescape.

You believe that a beautiful table presentation enhances the entire dining experience. You’ve used the same Christmas table design for several years and loved it. However, this year you have the urge to change it up a bit and give your family and friends a fresher look.

Freshome.com shares 4 different looks, each uniquely their own, that are sure to inspire you. Take a look and see what you think.

Include Cozy Textiles

We love, love, love this cozy, sweater-inspired tablescape. There’s something so different about it, yet it unquestionably radiates classic holiday spirit. This table setting just makes us want to curl up with a good book on a cold, winter day – one of our all-time favorite holiday activities.

Since sweater tablecloths are sure to be few and far between, this idea will probably work best for those of you who don’t mind doing a little sewing. You can buy the fabrics by the yard at your local craft store and make adjustments to fit your unique table. Here, they used wool and flannel, but feel free to experiment with fleece or another cozy alternative.

Colorwise you’ll want to follow the same guidelines as you would with your other interior design projects. Notice how the photo above keeps to the 10-30-60 rule. In this case, the cream sweater serves as the dominant color, the gold silverware includes the secondary color, and the patterned flannel serves as the accent color.
