The Holiday Table


✨The holidays are approaching and we open our homes to family and friends. As we gather, we set aside our differences and share a wonderful meal together. The table is the gathering place for all, so this month I am sharing some holiday table ideas and recipes that will hopefully give you inspiration this holiday season.

🌲I want to begin by reminding everyone that adding fresh greenery to your holiday table creates a rich, fragrant atmosphere. You can find greenery in your own backyard, or purchase garlands from your local grocer.

Oh the fragrance!


Fun holiday snow globe centerpieces! DIY Hot glue greenery inside the lid of different sized mason jars, add faux snow from any craft store, attach the lid & shake! Line them down the center of your table for a wintry, holiday centerpiece.



For the kid in all of us!

Christmas in Whoville? Why not?

This Grinch inspired table just makes me smile!❤️💚❤️

Whimsical curved Whoville trees, bright Grinch green with pops of red. The polka dot plates add the perfect touch!

🌲Do you have special holiday dishes? Maybe handed down from Grandma?

Now is the time to bring them out and share the tradition! I love how this vintage china is paired with modern chargers and placemats!


Not every holiday table has to be formal.

❤️This gingerbread table welcomes all! Red and white stripe linens give a nod to beloved candy canes!❤️ The gingerbread house you built with such care, can serve as your centerpiece.

I love the silver and gold combination for the holidays. This subtle pink backdrop is unexpected, but really appeals to me!

The simple table runner is the perfect backdrop to showcase these plaids.

💙Notice most of the pattern on this holiday table is from the table runner. The chargers, napkins rings and menorah have a complimentary engraved pattern.

Very subtle & elegant!

🌲🌲This holiday table just took my breath away! I love how the florals are raised so the guest can converse with others across the table. Hints of plaid, fresh greenery and sugar plums=

A Holiday Dream Table✨


Whether you are casual or formal for the holidays, there is no RIGHT way to decorate your holiday table. Sometimes the best ideas come from using what you have and putting them together in a whole new way. I hope you have been inspired for the upcoming holiday season!

Happy Decorating!
