If you're hosting an event this holiday season, I encourage you to dress up your table! This year, I am using natural elements like evergreen garland and citrus elements alongside marble and gold holiday decor to make it feel luxe and some pops of black for a modern touch!
I'm excited to share with you how I'm setting the table and give you some helpful tips. If you would like any of the items you see, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase seasonal product for your table!
Table Setting Essentials
I always start with the essentials. I take inventory of my chargers, plates, flatware, and glassware and think through the core elements of my place settings. I love the way a bright white plate looks on a gold charger. I'm also adding black cloth napkins, contrasting beautifully on the white plates.
To highlight the season, I like to use evergreen garland along the center of my table. I'm adding some citrus alongside the garland for brightness this year. Next, I add in some elevated seasonal decor. I'm using marble trees, gold reindeer, and textured ornaments (super cool, these fold up to save space!). Together these create a luxe vibe! I always add candles for ambiance and like mixing in different heights. I'm using black and gold candlesticks alongside gold votive candle holders.
Finally, I like to incorporate some finishing touches. I'm placing a single evergreen sprig on my napkins held together with a delicate piece of white ribbon. For place cards. you can get crafty and use clear ornaments!
Now that your table is set, light those candles and enjoy the time around the table with your loved ones!
