Are you also counting down the days to Christmas? I am so excited to have my family and friends come together and celebrate this wonderful time of year. Dinner aside, gathering around the table is such a special time during the holidays. It truly is one of my favorite things at Christmas – merry conversation and laughter with a lot of memories shared and stories told.
So, it’s time to set the table and get ready! If you are playing host or hostess to Christmas dinner or a holiday party, here are some Of my favorite styles and inspiring ideas on how to get that table prepped and ready for entertaining.
Incorporating the classic tartan trend – the one that never goes out of style – is the perfect way to keep it traditional with a pop of what’s hot this season. I love this whimsical dinner set from Williams Sonoma.
For a less traditional palette of reds and greens, opt for a winter wonderland look. Add some festive prints to finish the look, like these sweet ‘Home for Christmas‘ placemats, linens and traditional Christmas crackers from British designer Sophie Allport. For US shoppers, get your hands on some of her fabulous homeware products here.
For a rustic look, bring in some buffalo check. Yes, it’s trending! You don’t have to go overboard with the pattern, table runners are a perfect way to incorporate just the right amount. I love the look of 3 table runners, like MesaDAmore created.
Are you feeling inspired to set your table, or has it already been set? I would love to hear all about your festive tablescape!
