A special kids’ table is a fun way to keep little ones entertained while the grown-ups mingle during the holiday party. Although many children fantasize about being promoted to the adults’ table, the variety of charming kids’ tablescapes on TikTok will have them reconsidering. From a Christmas tree made out of chicken nuggets to dinosaurs handing out presents, here are 5 kids’ holiday table ideas that will make your little ones feel like VIPs. 

1. Dinosaur Christmas Tablescape

Little ones who love dinosaurs will be delighted by this tablescape. An assortment of red, green, and white confetti is scattered over the table, along with red and green dinosaur figurines, each holding a present in their claws. Paper plates shaped like dinosaurs complement the table’s prehistoric theme, while white, spray-painted wooden pine tree sculptures help depict what Jurassic Park would look like during Christmastime

2. Hanukkah Tablescape

This kids’ Hanukkah tablescape is just as lit as the menorah! A powder blue tablecloth with snowflake prints adorns the table, along with a variety of paper snowflakes and a colorful paper menorah. Each place setting includes a brown placemat with scalloped edges, a silver, iridescent paper plate topped with a festive napkin, blue plastic cutlery, and a plastic dreidel for a fun party favor. 

3. Chicken Nugget Christmas Tree Spread

For a truly decadent holiday feast that kids are bound to love, why not have their favorite fast food spot do the catering? This kids’ tablescape features a Christmas tree made from chicken nuggets. Apple slices function as Christmas lights, while ketchup serves as the tree’s ornaments. A mouthwatering array of french fries frame the tree giving the appearance of light rays emanating from the nuggets. For a tasty top-off, an assortment of dipping sauces line the bottom of the nugget tree. 

4. New Year’s Eve Tablescape

No matter their bedtime, kids can also ring in the new year thanks to this creative tablescape! After covering the table with brown wrapping paper, the filmer draws each place setting using yellow chalk. Next, they use a long black and white striped piece of fabric as the table runner, which they then line with glasses filled with a colorful assortment of markers so kids can color away until the clock strikes 12. 

5. “‘Twas The Night Before Christmas” Tablescape

Serve up some Christmas magic with this dining spread. Small pine trees in red pots line the table runner, creating a miniature winter wonderland. Each place setting includes mini Christmas stockings with wooden cutlery tucked inside along with paper cups that look like reindeer and festive party crackers with little surprises in them.
