3 Festive Dining Setting Hacks You Must Know

While the highlight of most Christmas gatherings is the menus, a well-decorated table can set the mood and create a magical atmosphere that will blow your guests away. No matter the aesthetic or size of your party, creating a beautiful tablescape shouldn’t have to break the bank. Here are three easy and inexpensive tips for setting a holiday table.

2. Holiday Table Decoration

You’ll never have to spend another dime on a holiday-themed table centrepiece, thanks to this DIY deco. All you’ll need is an empty glass jar or vase, Christmas ornaments and wired timer twinkle lights (preferably battery operated).


Start by anchoring the wire around the first ornament and place it at the bottom of the vase. Continue layering the ornaments and wires, filling any gaps. The main tip here is to have the ornaments in different colours and sizes. Once the last ornament has been placed, switch on the twinkle lights for a festive, glowing centrepiece.


3. Jenga Place Setting

This Jenga place setting adds a little fun to the tablescape. Start by glueing three blocks (length-side) together and create four sets of these. Next, arrange the four sets into a box shape and glue them together. Then, stuff the wooden boxes with colourful tissue paper, and fill them with small candy or trinkets. Tie the tissue paper together with a ribbon, and voila, you’re ready to add it to your place setting.


With these tips, you’re ready to wow your guests with table setting AND the menu! But no table setting is complete without high quality and exquisite china. Check out our collection here on IRYNE!
