Four Tips for Decorating Your Holiday Table - Enter our Jennifer Convertibles #DiningGiveaway

Four Tips for Decorating Your Holiday Table  - Enter our Jennifer Convertibles #DiningGiveaway

With the holidays around the corner, it's time to start thinking about how you're going to decorate the table. Better yet, sharing the tips below offers the chance to win a dining set of your own from Jennifer Convertibles!

Whether you're hosting Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah dinner, there are simple things you can do to create a festive energy. Here are four easy tips from Oprah.com that we think are pretty great: 

Step 1: Punch up the centerpiece

"Save money on flowers & table decorations by combining the bar and the centerpiece. Set up a beautiful punch bowl in the center of the table - it makes a great-looking decoration, and people can serve themselves drinks. Put fruit, edible flowers or large frozen chunks of ice in it, and surround with votives." (Linnea Johannsson, Perfect Parties: Recipes and Tips from a New York Party Planner)

Step 2: Mix and match your china

"Pair your fancier dishes with vintage plates, to have a colorful, fun look that doesn't feel too stuffy." (Cheryl Najafi, You're So Invited: Panic Less, Play More and Get Your Party On) If you're using disposable, feel free to combine patterns or vary colors!

Step 3: Find quirky things to put flowers in

Instead of traditional vases, recycle quirky bottles to put flowers in like - mustard jars, glass beer or tequilla bottles - "Soak the labels off and they become the perfect thing to hold flowers because they're low and your guests can still talk over the arrangements." (Cornelia Guest, Cornelia Guest's Simple Pleasures: Healthy Seasonal Cooking and Easy Entertaining)

Step 4: Don't just decorate the table

Think about the whole dining room: "Greenery, autumn leaves, twigs, pumpkins and squash, accented with strings of tiny white lights, can adorn the top of china cabinets, bookcases or the mantel over the hearth. They create an overall effect that is both seasonal and hosptible!" (Christy Rost, Celebrating Home: A Handbook for Gracious Living)

    Love the idea of mixing and matching plates. I don't have fine china to use, but I may use some paper and some of my real dishes. And would love the Walnut set to serve on!!!

    I love the Lacey dining set because of the faux marble too! It's gorgeous! Also, you hide some of the crumbs left over from the kids in the beautiful marble look pattern :-) until I can clean up after them.

    Would love to win the Lacey dining room collection. It's beautiful and would fit in nicely in my home. My kids would love the table to do work on also! Looks easy to take care of!

    I would love to win the "Lacey" dining room collection. We moved and still don't have a kitchen table. It would match my decor and is gorgeous!

    I would love to win the "Cimeran" dining collection for my son's new apartment for graduate school. He has lived with hand-me-downs with no complaint for so long so something like this would be awesome.

    I like the "Cimeran" dining collection, because the style would go perfect with my home decor!

    I love the "Lacey" dining room because the chairs have a button tufting. I have furniture in my living room that has button tufting so the "flow" from room to room would be spectacular. By the way, I also love the tip above that says to keep the centerpiece low so that "your guests can still talk over the arrangements." It really bugs me when you can't see the person opposite you because of the decoration in the middle of the table. How annoying !

    I'd want to win the Lacey dining set because it would look great with our current decor!
