Decorating a dining room table is not as difficult as you may think it is. Although there are some people who may spend thousands of dollars just decorating the dining table, it may not even take a hundred dollars to get a beautifully decorated dining room table that you can be proud of. With a little creativity and careful use of things that you already may have, you can come up with a great looking dining room table on a budget.
Use Placemats or a Tablecloth on the Dining Set Table
One of the easiest ways to add instant style to a dining table is to add placemats or a tablecloth. Some tablecloths and placemats are quite expensive, but it is not that hard to find inexpensive pieces at department stores or discount stores. To save some money, you can even make your own placemats or tablecloths by buying inexpensive fabric and using your sewing machine.
The fabric that you choose for your dining table is going to set the style for the table. If you want something clean and simple, use plain colored fabric and if you plan on only having placemats or the tablecloth on the dining room table you can go with patterns and designs.
Utilize the China You Already Have
Instead of just simply storing your good china in a kitchen cabinet or hutch, display it on your dining table. Lay out the china settings to add some interest to the table. It doesn’t matter if you don’t ever use those china settings, they are only for décor reasons and not for use. Since you already have the good set of china, you don’t have to pay any money for a new setting to display on the dining room table.
Look to Nature for Décor Pieces
Nature provides us with so many different decorating options that are free. You can come up with some really beautiful and unique dining room table centerpiece ideas when you’re outdoors.
· Vases of freshly picked flowers not only smell nice, but make a pretty centerpiece for the table.
· A bowl filled with pinecones and dried flowers can really set your dining table ready for the fall season.
· Or maybe you have an apple tree or know someone who does that can give you some apples to put in a bowl for a centerpiece.
· You can also use fruits such as lemons and limes.
· A simple potted plant also works well for a clean look on a dining room table.
Use Candles to Decorate Your Dining Table
Candles on your dining room table will not only add a romantic ambience to the dining room but can also add some great interest and style to the table. You can easily find inexpensive candles that can be placed in a row or a circle on the table and act as a centerpiece. You can also choose candelabra for the centerpiece as well.
Another creative idea is adding a glass bowl with water to the table and place floating candles in the bowl. There are so many different candles to choose from that you are bound to find something that looks great on the table and fits your decorating style.
