Our Favorite Holiday Season Centerpieces

The holiday season is finally here! We’re so excited to be fully in the swing of decorating and we’re already dreaming up some ideas for our holiday table this year. As always, you can go as ornate or as simple as you want, but there are some key elements we love to include in all of our holiday tables this time of year! The first on the list is greenery. The natural greenery that matches the winter holidays is just perfect. With this as your base, you can really carry it through the holidays and into the winter as well. We also really like including candles. The just really give that warm, cozy feeling! Other things to think about are adding in pine cones, berries, or even some ornaments, bells, or candy canes. Go wild and create that perfectly magical winter wonderland right in your dining room!

What's on Your Thanksgiving Table?

Last weekend of prep is upon us! Don't panic! You take care of the menu and we have got you covered when it comes to your tablescape. We were so excited to see lots of amazing inspiration out there but we narrowed it down to our top 3 picks. And to make your life easier we included shopping lists for each. So on your mark, get set, design!


Warm & Cozy

Our inspiration came straight out of the November issue Country Living Magazine! We fell in love with all the warm and personal touches brought to this table. Adding old family photos to each place setting is a great way to reminisce or remember the loved ones that can't be at your table this holiday season. All the different layers, patterns and colors make this tablescape perfect for the host and hostess that want to make their guests feel at home.

Yes, yes and yes! Everything about this look screams style! The tablescape is simple but keeps it's richness by combining hues of gold, silver and rose gold. A simple tea leaf garland and some pumpkins are all you need to complete this setup. Best part? This color palette is a great base for any occasion you need to set for. We love multiple uses!

Who says you need to stick with traditional oranges, reds and browns for your holiday gathering? We certainly don't! We are head over heals for this Casa de Perrin design.  Both modern and eclectic this tablescape is a great way to shake things up and have your guests surprised! The best part is that you can have the family help paint the pumpkins and keep your kitchen free of chaos!
