Embrace the holiday season in your restaurant with holiday table dressings! These holiday tabletop decorating ideas will enliven your restaurant and make your customers joyous. 

Holiday Centerpieces

Centerpieces are always a pleasant sight, especially during the holidays. Few things compliment a hot holiday meal better than a visual reminder of some beautiful aspects of the season. 

Here are a few centerpiece ideas: 

  • Poinsettias 
  • Candles 
  • Frosted pinecones in a nest of fir trimmings
  • A christmas floral arrangement 
  • Small christmas tree – If they’re natural, they’ll add food-complimentary odors to the holiday ambiance. 

Table-Top Lighting

Lights, whether on a string or around a tree, are emblematic of the holidays. Including them on the tabletops in your restaurant could go a long way in building a holiday ambiance. 
A classic holiday aesthetic is this: a cold, dark night. The family is huddled around a cozy fireplace and are wrapped in soft blankets. The fireplace lights their faces as they sip hot cocoa. Though the blankets might be too cumbersome to enjoy their meal, you can capture the ambiance of a shared fire. There’s a world of holiday tabletop lighting options available, and you’re sure to find one that will fit your restaurant. 

Holiday Appetizers

If you get the decorations in place and the holiday ambiance just right, you might inspire some holiday desires. Have some holiday appetizers to put on the table and bring the spirit full circle. 


Adding these holiday-associated treats to your customer’s options allows a festive representation without changing too much. 

Holiday-Color Tablecloths

Tablecloths are increasingly seen as passe as restaurants embrace a minimal aesthetic. During the holidays, though, that embrace is out of place. The holidays are supposed to express the cozy, soft, and warm. Bare wood, metal, or other material cannot do that. 

Colors that are emblematic of the holidays are available to you through Wilkins Linen. Some tablecloth colors to use at this time of year are:

  • Green – Life, vitality. Reminiscent of evergreen qualities.
  • Red – Warmth, energy, family 
  • Blue – Quiet, tranquility, 
  • White – Peace, fresh snow, renewal

Holiday-Color Napkins

Much like the tablecloths, the color of your napkins can cultivate a holiday atmosphere. Complimenting colors not only holiday cheer to your atmosphere, but style as well. Try red on green for a classic holiday combination or white on blue for a muted expression. 

Why Quality Matters (During the Holidays) 

If you’re trying to usher in the spirit of the holidays for your restaurant, you want to do it right. Because the holidays are meant to be comfortable and inviting, you want your napkins and tablecloths to project those qualities. 

A scratchy, thin napkin that irritates the skin it touches will definitely distract from the manicured ambiance. A tablecloth that’s waxy and cold will give the opposite effect on everything warm and welcoming.
