Winter Table Settings and Centerpieces

Baby, it's cold outside! What could be better than a cozy meal indoors with family and friends? Nine HGTV fans share ideas to help you set the table with style for your next winter get-together.

Modern Take on a Winter Theme

Rich fuchsia linens contrast dramatically with silver embellishments and bright white tableware to create a magical winter table setting. Design by Rate My Space user nyclq.

Rustic, Elegant and Romantic

Earthy oranges and reds warm up this winter table created by HGTV fan info40486456. A low centerpiece spans the length of the table and allows for easy conversation.

Fresh Floral Idea

HGTV fan wendymead pairs ornamental winter cabbages with white roses to create a simple yet sophisticated centerpiece. Want to make your own? Winter cabbages are available at most garden centers beginning in late fall and come in a variety of colors and sizes.

Organic Table Setting

HGTV fan nyclq brings the outdoors in with pinecone place-card holders and a bare branch, painted white, as a sculptural centerpiece. She pairs bright pops of chartreuse with rich bronze for a chic, winter table setting.

Cozy Fireside Brunch

Warm up on a chilly winter day with a meal by the fire. Simple tulips adorn an informally set table for a casual brunch. Design by Rate My Space user BelleInteriors.

Simple Sophistication

A modern crystal chandelier mimics the look of icicles while boxwood spheres and oversized glass gems create a minimal centerpiece. Design by Rate My Space user jak1975.

Chocolate With a Bit of Bling

HGTV fan K Johnson pairs chocolate table linens with glass gems and a beaded table runner for a rich, shimmering look.

Fire and Ice

Rate My Space user nyclq knows how to make a space shine. To achieve this look, she hung strands of mirrored tiles from her modern chandelier to resemble falling snow. Crystal beads wrapped around the candelabra give a frosty touch while punches of red add drama.

Silver Sparkle

Rate My Space user nyclq gets the party started with tiny mirror tiles strewn over a black tablecloth. A mirrored charger, beaded napkin ring and playful mini disco ball continue the glittering theme.
