T'is the season to make your house merry and bright for the holidays.

The dining table is said to be the centre of attraction as many tales from the year will be shared around it; not to mention it's the place which displays traditional homestyle delicacies. Show off your decorating skills with a few of our tips and inspirations courtesy of O & R Events Solutions, to get every inch of your dining room into the holiday spirit.

Choosing a colour scheme and sticking to it is important. Don't select more than three colours for your table setting.

Using real linen napkins always adds a touch of elegance to the occasion.

Adding placement cards with the name of each of your guests will make your guests feel extra special.

Placing a tiny keepsake such as a Christmas ornament or a small token is a nice addition to each place setting.

For a dose of colour, centrepieces made from cut flowers in a vase, small poinsettias in pots, cut twigs cut in a bundle create a nice setting for the festive season.

To add elegance and enhance the table setting's decor use charger plates. Chargers protect your tablecloth and retain the heat in dinnerware since they are placed directly underneath plates and bowls.

Changing your chairs and centre pieces can immediately change a formal to an informal setting. Also consider changing the colours of tablecloths and the way in which you display your napkins.
