With Christmas less than two weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about your Holiday Tablescape. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I take my tablescapes very seriously. I start planning them months in advance; I’ve also been known to set the table weeks before Christmas and then not let anyone touch it until the magical day arrives.
While perhaps a little crazy ;-), planning so far in advance allows me to slowly pull together pieces to create the perfect setting. Because I have so much fun designing tables, this year I thought I would offer you three very different tablescape inspirations to help you create a beautiful table to host family and friends.
With the holiday season here (how the heck did that happen??!!), parties and get togethers abound and with that comes gifting the host. I love hosting and entertaining, and know how much work goes into throwing a party so I always like to bring along a gift for the host that is more thoughtful than just wine or flowers – which are always good in a pinch! No judgement!
But, if you have a little extra time, here are some of my favorite Hostess Gifts to give.
Truth be told, the reason I love holidays so much is coming up with a fun tablescape! And this Easter Tablescape I did for a client is no exception, although probably one of the easiest I’ve done! I simply wrapped books in this gorgeous wrapping paper from Chapters Indigo, that coordinated beautifully with the inspiration for the table – the salad plates I found at Pier 1 Imports, always my go to for setting the table!
The result, I think is an understated table that will ensure the food and conversation are the stars of the gathering!
