Christmas Table Runner

Decorating for the holidays can be a fun experience that gets the whole family involved, and it can be the perfect way to explore and showcase your creativity. Although the Christmas tree is the centerpiece of most holiday decor, your dining table is a close second, and you should pay as much attention to decorating your dining table as you do to your tree.

Creating a Festive Holiday Table

Holiday table runners are the perfect way to get your table looking festive for the holidays. Christmas table runners have themes ranging from religious to traditional to modern, and if you want to have a more inclusive theme, you can simply pick holiday table runners that are more winter-oriented or that focus on a variety of winter holidays. Alternatively, you can play with solid-colored runners or lace runners for more versatility.

When to Decorate

You can start your holiday decorating on or after Thanksgiving, and depending on the type of decorations you select, you can keep them up until January or February. While Christmas decorations should be taken down by January 6th, the Epiphany, winter runners or runners that are not specific to Christmas can be kept up until well into February. Many decorating enthusiasts even transition from a Christmas runner to a winter runner in January so they can keep the cheer going through February.

Showcase Your Dining Table

While tablecloths hide your table, runners let your showcase your beautiful dining room table. Holiday runners are the perfect base for a fun display. You can use a plain runner underneath a Christmas village, or you can showcase a decorative runner with a simple set of candlesticks. While you are enjoying the holiday feast, your runner can do double duty as a table protector. Quilted table runners protect your dining table from hot plates and scorch marks.

Your Sense of Style

To determine which sort of runner is right for your home, think about the look you are trying to convey. If you are looking for something fun and funky, try a brightly colored runner or a Santa and reindeer themed runner. If you want something classy and sophisticated, try looking at Lenox Christmas table runners--Lenox offers a fabulously coordinated selection of runners, tablecloths, and matching napkins that are perfect for making a great impression.

A Coordinated Look

Your purchase from the Christmas table runners section is not something that needs to stand on its own. It is a visual centerpiece that can be used to create a coordinated look. If you have stockings and other holiday decorations that are all different colors, try getting a table runner that combines all of those colors together. Although your pieces aren't from the same collection, a carefully planned move like this will tie your home together.

If your dining table is in the same room as your tree, try finding a tree skirt that perfectly matches a runner from the Christmas table runners section. If your tree and table are in different rooms, the continuity of colors and patterns can even make the transition from the living room to the dining room feel more seamless for your holiday guests.
