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!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we’re starting to think about how we’re going decorate our tables this year! Last year, we broke down how to recreate some of our favorite table looks, but this year we want to do something a little different. Today, we’re going to look at all the essential components to a beautiful tablescape, namely a table runner set up. There are so many different ways you can style a table runner set up. You can keep it really light and simple, or really add in a lot of details and depth depending on the style and look you’re trying to achieve. The key elements we like to include in our Thanksgiving tablescapes include some sort of base, candles, pumpkins, floral or greenery garland, and sometimes even fruit or citrus! For the base, you can choose a simple cloth runner from the store, or get rustic and interactive with a brown paper runner. You can buy a long roll and cut to your needed length. This is really fun because you can then draw on it as well -- fun additional decor or even names for assigned seating. From there, you just build up! We usually add in the garlands first and work the other elements in around. It’s also nice to have a bigger centerpiece in the center of the table that’s supplemented by all the smaller accessories. Whether it be a larger pumpkin or a big vase of florals. Sky’s the limit in terms of color palettes and combinations, just have fun with it!
Summer is all about vibrancey and warmth. We’re always looking to liven up our table with pops of color, fruit, and greenery! Today, we wanted to share some of our favorite inspiration images that do just that. Many of these are quick and simple changes that make a big pop and will elevate your tablescape from drab to fab in no time. Happy decorating!
It’s hard to believe that Easter Sunday is only a few days away! Falling early this year, we’re caught slightly off-guard and in need of some major tablescape inspiration for this weekend’s festivities. Whether you’re hosting a mature adult gathering, or looking for something a bit more family-friendly, these beautiful tablescapes offer something for everyone! From soft, neutrals to bold and bright spring colors, Easter-intensive or more general spring-like, these tablescapes create a beautiful setting for your meal and will wow your guests. If a full tablescape isn’t in your capacity, try picking specific smaller details that you love and incorporate them where possible. For example, we love a bright table runner with some simple florals and candles. The best part of simple decor additions such as these? You can reuse them for various holidays and events! Regardless of how your table is set, we are wishing you a very Happy Easter filled with family and love.
