Set Your Table with Crystals for Positive Energy this Holiday Season

Heather Askinosie|November 06, 2021

Flowers have always been a favorite focal point for the centerpiece of a table, but this season, why not invite Earth’s energy to dinner? Healing crystals can bring a whole new dimension to your dining table. They elevate the environment and add beauty, color and sparkle. They, quite literally, set the table for a positive and meaningful experience for you and your guests.  

Crystals come in all shapes and sizes so you can create a multi-dimensional WOW factor that brings texture and depth to an otherwise traditional setting. The symmetrical shape of spheres promotes powerful healing and a high frequency of harmony and positivity. As elongated pillars of light, crystal points and pyramids allow for an accelerated manifestation of dreams, wishes and intentions. Crystal clusters, with their many points embedded in one base, radiate an immense amount of energy and are effective in removing and clearing away negativity. And, as you might expect, the scale and size of large crystals can be transformative in raising the activity and vibrations in a space, channeling the best version of ourselves and promoting love and compassion.

Whatever configuration, combination or composition you decide on, a crystal centerpiece is definitely a conversation starter. Not only is it sure to be an obvious topic of conversation in and of itself, but it will activate the energy in the room and around your table, creating a positive, lively environment. Whether you look forward to spirited debate, laugh out loud moments or the dreaded ramblings of a crazy relative, a crystal centerpiece can keep things on track and flowing in the right direction. Of course, there’s no rule that says you can’t combine both crystals and flowers for an added spark of interest. There are all kinds of ways to use crystals on your dining table. Get creative. Set a touchstone crystal at each place setting. Incorporate them in napkin rings or with place cards. Set a theme, maybe based on a holiday intention, like gratitude, prosperity or abundance, or even enhance your color scheme. Give crystals as a parting gift for your guests or bring with you as a hostess gift. The more joy and thought you put in, the bigger the impact. The most important thing is using crystals with intention, to create a memorable, meaningful experience for you and the ones you love. 

Here are some ideas for how to incorporate crystals in a centerpiece or on your dining table: 

  • Selenite Candle Holders and selenite towers –  An illuminous presence. Selenite is a powerful energy cleanser to keep your home clean, clear and protected. It is an energizing beacon of light that will keep your table and group of guests elevated and uplifted.
  • Leopard Skin Jasper – True to its name with uniquely beautiful markings.  This stone assists in self-healing and spiritual discovery.  It is a powerful source of stability, grounding and protection.
  • Ocean Jasper –  This natural beauty will bring in the great outdoors. This stone carries with it the cleansing and clarifying power of the ocean to help detox from stress and clear an overburdened mind. It also promotes a sense of happiness and community with others.
  • Pyrite  – Strikingly gold, this crystal adds the perfect amount of drama to any holiday centerpiece. Pyrite invites in abundance, prosperity, success and wealth by promoting positivity, encouragement and passion. It also increases willpower and motivation so you can pursue any new year’s resolutions and  stay on track toward your goals.
