If your home will be a gathering place for friends and family this holiday season, you’ll love these festive ideas for setting your dining room holiday table:
Be sure to consider whether or not you wish to set your holiday table formally. For more formal occasions where etiquette rules supreme (perhaps a Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas Day Brunch), we recommend visiting Emily Post’s website for helpful how-to’s and detailed guidelines. If the occasion is less formal (think Friendsgiving and ugly sweater parties), you may wish to break the rules a bit in favor of creativity!
Some of the biggest trends this year include gold-rimmed glasses and gold flatware, rustic accents, DIY centerpieces, and plenty of fresh flowers! For beautiful flowers that will stay within budget, be sure to stop by Trader Joe’s. And if you’re in search of the season’s most swoon-worthy stemware, be sure to visit Anthropologie and West Elm!
Spread gratitude! For Thanksgiving, consider adding these pretty cards that allow each guest to mention a few things that they’re Thankful for, and share the responses during dessert! Click here for a free printable.
