Our friend Hilary Farr from HGTV’s Love It or List It was in Detroit for America’s Thanksgiving Parade Presented by Art Van. While she was here, she made an appearance on Fox 2 Detroit and shared her favorite tips for creating festive holiday tablescapes.
Here are three of her ideas:
1. Use reflective candlesticks that will add extra sparkle to your table. Crystal and cut glass will reflect the light and magnify the glow, creating a special atmosphere for special memories.
2. Ornaments are for more than just the tree. Fill a bowl with glass balls, which can make an easy centerpiece for your table. You can also scatter the ornaments around the tablecloth or on the runner for fun. Consider a color theme. All gold will glitter, while a mix of jewel tones will be festive.
3. Invest in chargers. Used beneath your plates, chargers serve as a frame for your meal, and they can quickly dress up everyday dinnerware. Choose different colors to create different looks.
