How to Set the Perfect Holiday Table

If you’re hosting a Christmas party, having people over for the holiday, or having any kind of gathering throughout the season, odds are that you’ll be setting a table for a fun and delicious dinner. Pinterest provides so many swoon-worthy tablescapes in general, but particularly for the holiday! I wish I had a dining room table so that I could set up a fun holiday table, but…#ApartmentLiving… I only have a small, round kitchen table.

Anyways, I wanted to put together some of my favorite elements of a perfectly set holiday table. Start with table linens – from tablecloths to napkins. Then choose a garland, as it looks beautiful down the center of a table. Next is of course the place settings – can’t eat without those! I can’t believe how many festive and beautiful china and serveware is out there for the holidays – it would be wasteful not to take advantage of it, don’t you think?! Then, pick your major decor items – these should be larger and the focal point of the table, whether they be candles, large figurines, or a floral arrangement. Finally, choose your smaller decor items you want to adorn your table. I love the idea of putting something small and decorative at each place setting as a take-home favor – like a little ornament or something for the placecard!

Because there are SO many themes to choose from when it comes to designing a holiday tablescape, I mapped out the products I would choose for a few. Click through the links below for some fun ideas for a perfectly curated holiday table this season.
