Set Your Holiday Table With Style

Whether you're hosting a holiday dinner, throwing a party or just want to add a festive touch to your table, here are 4 different looks to elevate your entertaining.

1. Natural Style

Natural Style

This relaxed but magical setting is easy to create with simple pine boughs or a garland down the center of your table, a string of lights and lots of copper or metallic candlelight in different shapes, from votives to hurricanes.

Pair simple white dinnerware (no need for fancy china) with gold flatware. Tiny wrapped presents with twine and pinecones can serve as place cards.

2. Luxe Jewel Tones

Luxe Jewel Tones

Sapphire alternate plates with gold chargers + flatware, and a lush arrangement of flowers + fruit in deep hues and rich textures set a dramatic table. Amp up the sparkle with gold candlesticks and votives.

The celestial theme set by the salad plates is picked up in hand-drawn constellation place cards. (If you know your guests' birthdays, draw or print out each person's zodiac constellation).

3. Simple Elegance

Simple Elegance

Take a modern, monochromatic approach to a formal table with white china, gold (or silver) flatware + candlesticks, a tablecloth + cloth napkins. Tuck a sprig of flowers or greenery into napkin rings, or tie with ribbon or twine. Stemless wine glasses feel more contemporary + relaxed.

4. Sparkle + Shimmer

Use salad plates + metallic chargers to dress up basic white dinnerware. Here, the flatware and charger pick up on gold accents in the salad plate. A freeform still life of berried branches, candles and a bowl of fruit on a jewel–toned runner create a lush but low–key centerpiece.
