Now that Thanksgiving is over, the holiday season is in full swing. Many retailers even jumped the gun and started selling Christmas items shortly after Halloween. Seeing holiday displays is enough to get you into the mood to start decorating with sparkly and shiny things.
And, if you are proud of your inner interior designer, chances are that you will share your work in social media. Many people are turning away from Facebook but Instagram is as popular as ever. If you want to make your holiday table scape Instagram worthy, try following these tips.
Find your inspo
Looking at different examples will help set the tone for what you like and don't like when it comes to decorating your holiday table. Pinterest is a good place to get ideas from. Also, use your favorite search engine or HGTV. The internet is full of ideas, just remember they aren't all good ideas.
Have fun with it
Once you find your desired look, get started on decorating. Put your own spin on it to reflect your style. If you copy a photo you found online, you might not like it for long. Plus, if you tie in your own personal style, it will match your place much better. Don't stress about making your table look totally perfect. Beauty in decorating often comes from a mismatch of things that tie together cohesively.
Sometimes less is more
Don't worry about filling your whole table if it starts to look cluttered. One of the best design rules to follow is that there is beauty in simplicity. You want to fill the table space appropriately without going overboard.
Don't break the bank
You don't have to spend a lot to achieve an expensive look. Shop sales or use times you already have to save money. It isn't even December yet and many stores already have Christmas decor on sale.
Play around with your arrangement
Move items around several times until you find a setting you like. Then, find your best, natural light and snap away. Apply your favorite Instagram filter and share your beautiful work!
