This is a trendy and slightly minimalistic type of Christmas. Blacks and whites make a bold statement and the only “color” that comes to the eyes is a big of Van Gogh’s yellow from the infamous Starry Night. Christmas is a season for hope and yellows should shine bright like diamonds. Polka dots, stripes, plaid napkins and solid yellow insides of tiny white tea cups ties this all into a few bright stars sitting a top the paper origami trees.

There’s nothing really “warm” about this Christmas look. This Christmas table decorating idea is fairly simple in that you can use any variety and shape of glass bowl to hold your balance of big and small silver ornaments.

This Christmas table decorating idea has a lot going for it. In the foreground we have a 2 tier tray that makes us wonder if we’re at a wedding or in the middle of a 16th century square with a water fountain. A hard silver tray is contrasted with glassy ornaments of gold and red with a small red bird perched on top, drawing our attention to the back of the room where we’ve got lights and tree branches or more birds perched on them. Don’t forget the long, elegant candles! If you’re looking for an entire living room look for the holidays, this could be it.

This centerpiece takes a pyramid shape starting smaller at the ends and building to bigger at the center.
