  1. Natural Glam Theme

To make this theme come to life, you will need:

  • White paint pen
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Mason jars in different sizes
  • Rosemary sprigs
  • Metallic gold spray paint
  • Collected branches, leaves and pine cones
  • Twine
  • Tea lights
  • Brown kraft paper


Collect a bunch of tree branches, leaves and pine cones from outside. After acquiring all the items, glam them up with a coat of gold spray paint including the base of the tea lights. Next, place a sheet of brown kraft paper on the table then put the tea lights inside mason jars. Arrange the leaves, pine cones, and branches at the center of the table such that they form a centerpiece that pleases your eye. No need for perfection, effortless and casual looks better. Place a white napkin in the center of every plate and place the silverware on top. To make a cute drink stirrer, use twine to attach a fresh rosemary sprig to the skewer.

For a more personalized party, you can write the guest’s names on the painted leaves then use a twine to attach to the silverware. Lastly, light the tea lights and you will have one of the most gorgeous holiday dinner tables you have ever seen.

  1. Scandinavian Chic

You will need:

  • Wax paper
  • Mason jars
  • Cranberries
  • Red baker’s twine
  • Needle and thread
  • Small tree branches
  • Cookies, scissors
  • Tea lights
  • Hurricane vases
  • Pre-popped popcorn
  • A natural-print wrapping paper


Begin by creating a garland of one cranberry and popcorn and one cranberry by threading a needle then piercing through the thickest part of the popcorn and the center of each cranberry. Then, use baker’s twine to fasten a rosemary sprig on each Mason jar and place a tea light candle inside. Now place a cookie inside a square wax paper, fold it to close and use a baker’s twine to secure it then attach a homemade tag.

Lay the wrapping paper on the table and place three hurricane vases casually. Arrange tree branches in each vase and begin weaving the cranberry and popcorn garlands through the branches, across the table while letting some portions to drape in the vases. Once you get a centerpiece that matches your taste, put apple cider in an old-fashioned glass jar and tie a homemade label using the twine. Lastly, personalize the plates with the wrapped cookies. Simple yet pretty.

  1. Neon NYE

For NYE theme, you will need:

  • Rice
  • Taper candles
  • Neon spray paint
  • Neon labeling stickers
  • Glass hurricane vases
  • Toy plastic animals
  • Neon curling ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Neon pens
  • Bright Colored Sharpie markers
  • Neon tissue paper cut into confetti pieces
  • Tea lights
  • Bright colored masonry cord


Using tape, attach multi-colored ribbon party clusters at the end of the skewers. Brighten up the hurricane vases by wrapping differently colored neon masonry on the outside of each vase. Do the same with the tea light for color coordination. Now spread neon tissue paper confetti on a white tablecloth to create an ombre effect. Fill the vases hallway with rice and place a candle in the middle of each vase. The rice is not visible from the outside due to the wrapped cord and the rice keeps the candles upright. Place a stirrer in each champagne glass. Paint the small objects such as the toy animals into a cool design by spraying them with neon paint and attaching homemade tags. Lastly, light the candles.

With the above Holiday dinner table decorations, you can even serve frozen pizza and your guests would still be blown away.
