How to Set a Stunning Holiday Table

Seasons greetings friends!

At this point, I am sure you're all ready for the holidays. I know that I am as I just completed my Christmas tablescapes, the final stage of my holiday decorating.

Setting a beautiful table is one of my favorite things to do. I typically have a theme for my tables whether it be for the holidays, the season or a color that feels appropriate.

There are a few steps you can follow when creating a beautiful table...

  1. Include texture in some element of the tablescape. Texture is an important design element that brings added complexity and interest to a tablescape.

  2. Create an interesting centerpiece; a central object which serves a decorative purpose.

  3. Layer place setting with multiple colors. You can layer with textures, colors, and patterns. Each layer should be it's own story. Each layer builds to a complete design.

  4. Add interesting cups, glasses and/or stemware.

  5. Mix metals and add candles for a special glow.

I hope that this post inspires you. If you are planning to set a holiday table and have any questions, I'd be more than happy to share tips for setting a beautiful tablescape. Feel free to reachout to me directly.
