If you’ve vowed to spruce up your winter dining room table decor, then it’s time to put your decorator hat on!
No matter what kind of style or aesthetic you have in mind, here are a few ways to make sure that even with wintery cold weather outside, your dining room looks beautiful, cozy, and inviting.
Dining Room Table Decor for Winter
Dining room tables serve not only as a place to eat but also as a gathering spot for family and friends. As such, it’s important to add dining room table decor in a way that reflects your personal style while also creating an inviting space.
After all, we all eat with our eyes first, so walking into a beautiful room with candles lit and gorgeous table decor will set the tone for any gathering.
First and foremost, the centerpiece of your dining room table should be both functional and beautiful. A vase of fresh flowers is a classic choice and can add a pop of color and natural beauty to the table. The key is to choose something that will complement the overall aesthetic of your dining room and not distract from it.

Dining Room Table Decor – Scatter
I’m not sure if we coined the term scatter or if we heard it somewhere, but we love to use what we call scatter down the middle of a dining room table. Scatter adds texture and dimension to a table as well as personality.
While a single centerpiece and a few candlesticks are pretty, once you add apothecary jars filled with decoupage decor balls or clay valentine hearts, fruits and nuts, or flowers and leaves, the table morphs into spectacularly beautiful. It’s the layering of elements that makes a table special.
Did you happen to notice the green and white floral decor balls in the scatter? Be sure and check back tomorrow as I share how to make these.
Setting an Inviting Table
As you have likely guessed, I don’t typically set a formal table.
I like to set unexpected and inviting tables … ones that welcome my guests and have them wanting more. I have always felt that formal tables can feel intimidating and that is the exact opposite feeling I am trying to achieve when I set a table.
Don’t be surprised if you find some unexpected items on my table! Did you notice the centerpiece is sitting atop a bowl with a green plate on top of it? There are green apples and freshly made decor balls on the table and three different types of plates and bowls.
Perhaps you could conclude that I am not a rule follower. My belief is that the more unexpected, the better. I want to intrigue my guests when they sit at my table!
(I should mention that I do follow table-setting rules so you will find that the utensils and place-setting items are always at the right pace!)
