Setting the Perfect Holiday Tablescape

December 20, 2017

The holidays are fast approaching, are you ready? Check out my tips below on creating the perfect tablescape this holiday season where you’d be proud to invite family and friends to gather around. Remember, the key word here is layering – don’t be scared to layer your lights, trinkets and themed decor, and place setting. Happy decorating! 

1.  The holidays are all about the lights so make sure you “Light the table in layers”.  The goal here is to bounce the light across the table at different levels with various sizes of candlesticks and votives and fairy lights.

2.  “Layer a holiday theme”.  Here we’re focusing on a more rustic/winter wonderland theme.  From the birch place mats, the plaid table runner, the forest animals.  Pick a theme that reflects the rest of your decor and layer it not only at your table but through the rest of your home.

3.  Layer your place setting.  Don’t be afraid to mix it up — everything doesn’t have to match.  Layer from the charger to the dinner plate to the salad plate to the napkin and even a take away gift for dinner guests.
