How to Choose the Perfect Centerpiece for Your Table

During the holidays, some of the most important moments take place at the dining room table. The table is the place to gather with family, share a beautiful meal, and enjoy each other’s company. One way to make your table even more inviting this year is to choose a centerpiece. A gorgeous centerpiece sets the tone for our favorite holiday gatherings; in fact, it helps set the entire room’s tone. Even if COVID keeps you from gathering with family this year, a beautiful centerpiece will help create holiday spirit in your home and give a cheerful backdrop to your Zoom sessions with family if you aren’t gathering in person.


How to Choose a Centerpiece


A gorgeous centerpiece can be the first thing people see when entering a room. However, choosing the perfect centerpiece for your table takes some thought and planning. We have made the process a little easier by putting together a list of things to consider when selecting your next centerpiece.


  1. Scale. This refers to the size of the centerpiece in relation to your table. Start by measuring the width and length of your table. Decide how much space you would like to be taken by the centerpiece and note these measurements.


  1. Shape. A common mistake many people make when choosing a centerpiece is getting the shape wrong in relation to the table. Assess the shape of your table and think about what centerpiece shapes would best complement it.


  1. Height. Consider what would be the proper height so guests can see one another easily. When seated at your table, the centerpiece should not reach head level of your shortest guests.


  1. Color scheme. Before choosing a centerpiece, make a note of the color schemes of your other holiday décor. You don’t want a centerpiece that clashes with your holiday candles or place settings.


  1. Type of meal. It might be a good idea to consider the type of meal you intend to serve, as well as how you plan to serve it. For example, if you are going to prepare a Christmas ham, think about arranging it on the table in relation to the place settings and centerpiece.
