Are your tables Instagram-worthy? Whether you’re hosting a winter wedding, anniversary party or corporate retreat, guests will photograph their meals (and maybe themselves) with your tablescape in the background. Ensure your table decor is ready for its close-up with our experts’ favorite design ideas for winter events.

Winter Event Tablescape Design & Decorating Ideas

When designing a tablescape for your winter event, first consider your goals. At an elegant brunch, you may want a bit of sparkle, whereas a corporate event requires a bigger “wow” factor. Here are some tablescape decor ideas for a variety of event types:

#1 Winter Forest
Mother Nature is always on-trend. Bring her classic style to your table with vases filled with greenery and wrapped in birch bark. If your event requires open sightlines, use a bengaline or burlap table runner lined with evergreen boughs and pine cones, or create centerpieces of bark-wrapped candles ringed with evergreen clippings.

#2 Fire and Ice
For evening events, create a striking scene with candelabras floating above frosted plates. Use ice blue chairs and linens to cool things down, or red and gold linens to heat it up. The right event lighting can further your fire and ice theme.

#3 Silver and Sparkle
The holidays may be over, but shine is always in style. Metallic-trimmed china and silver linens are a simple, yet elegant choice appropriate for any event. Use dazzling tabletop accessories to complement your theme.

#4 Snowfall on Winter Blooms
Winter flowers such as amaryllis, narcissus, crocuses, or bundles of rose hips add color to your winter table. Long-lasting pussy willows are a good choice for a multi-day event. Choose white or off-white linens combined with crystal glassware to create a glittering, snowy scene.

#5 Winter Bounty
Citrus fruits and orange blossoms can infuse your tablescape (and cocktails) with a dose of sunshine on dark winter days. Winter fruit and sweet-smelling blossoms evoke warmth and appeal to the senses.

Consider a grazing table filled with delectable treats and hearty appetizers kept warm in chafing dishes.
