White, red and green are the traditional colors of Christmas. However, you don’t have to choose this three-color combination. Today, we are going to share with you some decoration ideas with the red and white duo to spend a cozy Christmas. Let’s go to stock up on ideas!
1. The traditional meets the modern
Whether it’s a white or red tablecloth, remember to be moderate when decorating the table. You have to create a pleasant atmosphere and not a loud one. Bet on a red tablecloth and add a white table runner or white doilies. A floral centerpiece and a few candles and voila. If you prefer white, go for a white tablecloth and arrange red and elegant tableware. You could scatter decorative clear crystals and white tea lights as the finishing touch.
2. The Christmas star is ideal as a natural decoration at the festive table
But what would the Christmas party be without the red Christmas star? This plant with red leaves finds its place in the center of the festive table. Natural decorative elements are always a more beautiful decoration than any other decorative object. Add wooden or ceramic figurines or some red garlands.
3. Natural Christmas table decoration in green, red and white
To refresh the red and white Christmas table decoration, you could add green accents. As you already know, green and red make a fresh and original combination, which is also considered traditional. Cut fir branches and make natural arrangements of red berries and green branches, pine cones, etc. The napkins folded in the shape of trees are also a nice decorative idea that you could use to impress your guests at the table.
4. Two ideas for the traditional Christmas table in red-green and red-white
Christmas color par excellence, red takes all its brilliance married to a white. Decorative accessories or table linen, the red-white duo is undeniably a winner. Polka dots, stripes, checks, or thematic patterns, everything suits him. Elegant and timeless, the Christmas decoration in red and white remains a safe bet. Ideal for those who wish to ennoble the decor with refinement, the traditional holiday decoration evokes memories of childhood and traditions shared with the family.
5. Christmas tree decorated with red Christmas balls and pine cones and modern red and white Christmas table decoration
The red and white Christmas table decoration always has a lot of effects. It promises to leave a lasting impression on the guests and immortalize this convivial moment. Red and white as a Christmas decoration still seduce us as much, even if today it is changing in many ways. Traditional colors are more and more often associated with other colors, which gives a personalized and also original rendering. So, on the red tablecloth, we place a white table runner and scatter fir or holly branches to add a touch of greenery to the whole. Apart from pine green, we combine red and white with more daring colors such as turquoise for example. This color is reminiscent of snow and snowflakes and therefore promises to bring a touch of freshness to the festive table.
6. Decorate the dining room and kitchen in red and white for Christmas
Red and white will easily turn your kitchen and dining room into a Christmas kingdom. Why not dress up the table with these two beautiful colors? You could put a red table runner with white snowflakes in place. Red and white placemats or tablecloths will be perfect. Whenever possible, make the chairs more comfortable with cushions in these colors.
If you have them, now is the time to bring out the red dinnerware sets. If you have mugs or other utensils featuring these two beautiful colors, this is also the perfect opportunity to display them in glass cupboards and on open kitchen shelves.
Other than that, consider arranging red and white candies in the dining room. Not only will this delight gourmets, but it will also embellish your decoration.

Decorate your Christmas tree in red and white for a cozy atmosphere. Any decorations wearing the colors red and white will give a traditional look to any Christmas tree.

If ever you do not find decorative objects in these colors that you like; you could make it yourself. There are several cool DIYs to make on the internet and they aren’t necessarily difficult. If you and your family members have decided to exchange gifts at midnight, it would be nice to agree to wrap all the gifts in red and white.
