How to Set the Table for Christmas Dinner

Christmas dinner is a cherished tradition that brings friends and family together to celebrate the holiday season. Setting the table for a Christmas dinner party is a fun and festive way to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Remember that setting the table for a Christmas dinner party can be as formal or as casual as you prefer, depending on the style of your gathering. We chose to adorn our Christmas dining table with our Maya collection of dinnerware. 

Decide on a color scheme that reflects the Christmas spirit. We designed our table setting around a traditional red, white, green, silver, and gold color scheme. You can also choose a more modern and elegant color palette, such as white and silver or blue and silver. If you are having trouble choosing the theme, consider going with something simple such as classic Christmas, winter wonderland, or Santa’s workshop.

Start by laying down a tablecloth or a table runner that matches your chosen color scheme. Set individual place settings for each guest. Place the dinner plate in the center of each setting. If you’re serving salad, place the salad plate on top of the dinner plate. If you’re serving soup, you can place the soup spoon to the right of the dinner spoon. Set flatware on either side of the plates, with forks on the left and knives and spoons on the right. Place water glasses above and to the right of the knives. Fold cloth napkins and place them on the dinner plate or to the left of the forks.

Create a festive Christmas centerpiece that suits your theme. You can include elements like holiday candles, miniature Christmas trees, or a combination of evergreen branches and ornaments. Consider adding candles, string lights, or other ambient lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Scented candles with holiday scents like cinnamon or pine can also enhance the mood.

Add holiday-themed decorations like Christmas stockings, ornaments, pinecones, and even a holiday-themed table runner or tableware for an extra festive touch. Do a final check to make sure everything is in place and light any candles if you are using them to set the mood. Don’t forget to leave out some milk and cookies for Santa on a festive melamine tray!


Setting the Table for a Thanksgiving Party

Setting the mood for your Thanksgiving party can be a fun and memorable experience. Creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere is a wonderful way to evoke the essence of the season. The first step is creating a theme or color scheme for your décor. Traditional fall colors like deep reds, oranges, and browns work well for Thanksgiving, but you can also go for a more modern or elegant look with neutral colors or metallic accents.

Pictured above is our Stardust and Pebble Creek product lines in blue.

Making a beautiful and inviting table for your Thanksgiving party is a delicate balance of tradition and personal expression. Ensure you have enough place settings for all your guests, including plates, forks, knives, spoons, glasses, and napkins. Consider using our Elite Global Solutions melamine dinnerware or even special Thanksgiving-themed plates and glasses. Cover the table with a tablecloth that matches your theme or color scheme. Alternatively, use placemats for a more casual setting.

Crafting a Thanksgiving centerpiece is a delightful way to add a touch of elegance and warmth to your holiday table. A well-crafted Thanksgiving centerpiece not only enhances the beauty of your table but also sets the stage for a memorable and festive holiday gathering. Create a stunning centerpiece that serves as the focal point of the table. Consider using a floral arrangement, a cornucopia filled with seasonal fruits and vegetables, candles, or a combination of these elements. Make sure it’s not too tall, so guests can see each other across the table.

Pictured above is our Stardust and Pebble Creek product lines in blue.

Set the table with plates, utensils, and glassware in the order they will be used. Typically, the fork goes on the left, and the knife and spoon go on the right. Place the water glass above the knife and any wine glasses to the right of the water glass. Roll or fold cloth napkins and secure them with decorative napkin rings that match your theme or color scheme. Add decorative details like small pumpkins, gourds, or seasonal foliage to each place setting to enhance the Thanksgiving theme. Consider using candles to create a warm and cozy ambiance.

If you’re not using a full tablecloth, a table runner can add a decorative element to the center of the table. If you have space and want to go all out, you can add additional decorations like seasonal wreaths, string lights, or even a garland along the center of the table. Step back and take a moment to assess the table’s overall look. Make any final adjustments or additions to ensure it looks just the way you want it.

Setting a beautiful Thanksgiving table can enhance the overall dining experience and make your guests feel appreciated. Don’t forget to take photos to capture the memories of your Thanksgiving celebration!


How to Set the Table for a Halloween Party

Setting the table for a Halloween party is a fun and creative task that allows you to embrace the spooky and festive spirit of the holiday. Decide on a specific Halloween theme for your party, such as a classic spooky, haunted house, a gothic vampire, or a cute and kid-friendly theme. Your theme will influence your table decor and color scheme.

Choosing the ideal dinnerware can be a daunting task, luckily, we are here to help! Paper plates are a convenient option, but they aren’t ideal for a formal dining room setting. If you are going through all the trouble of setting the table, you want to lead with your best plate forward. Our shatterproof melamine products are the safest option for a large holiday dinner party. We have some stunning black and white products that are sure to set the tone for your spooky Halloween-themed event.

Our premium Durango Formal dinnerware collection is sure to captivate your guests with the stark black and bright white color pattern. The brilliant white backdrop is the perfect blank canvas for your cuisine while the black accent color provides an ominous tone to your table setting. Try layering the dinnerware to give each place setting a dimensional expression. We recommend stacking the DB651GM soup bowl on top of the DG1098GM dinner plate respectively.

Durango Formal Round Bowl 8” dia. x 1 3/8” h., 10 oz., (DB651-GM/GG)
Durango Formal Round Plate 11” dia. x 1” h., (D1098-GM/GG)

Place additional ingredients such as cranberry sauce or gravy in the middle of the table in a small bowl, preferably with a handle. We recommend using our D42RR small bowl with a handle in black and white.

Durango Formal Bowl w/ 1 1/2” Handle 4 1/2” dia. x 2 1/2” h., 10 oz., (D42RR)

If you are also serving a salad as an appetizer, place the salad bowl just above the dinner plate and slightly off-center. The salad being just slightly to the left will leave room for an optional name card or party favor to be placed in front of each guest. If you are looking for the perfect salad bowl, we recommend using our 40oz D1008RR bowl in black and white. The soft matte texture on the outside contrasts the glossy, white-dimpled surface on the inside.

Double-check that your final touches are in place. If you are serving drinks, make sure to have appropriate drinkware and serving stations for your beverages. You can also add Halloween-themed drink stirrers or straws for extra flair. Check your table for symmetry and turn on any lighting or props to enhance the spooky atmosphere. Remember that Halloween is all about creativity and having fun, so don’t be afraid to get creative with your table decorations and make your Halloween party a memorable and spooky experience.
