Boy, have I been waiting to write this one! Like for real you guys, I’m not sure if my holiday spirit has ever came out so early – which is saying a lot for a planner! I can’t believe how quickly December has come around this year, don’t you agree?
It’s the beginning of a season full of family gatherings, laughter, and memory making. Now don’t get me wrong having the holidays back to back could be a little stressful. Since I’m such a giver and this is the season of giving, consider this the seasonal dose of inspiration on how to style the perfect Holiday Table!
So let the holiday spirit ring with these four fun holiday tablescapes including a beautiful Hanukkah set-up! And to get you ‘Rockin around the Christmas tree, here are some Christmas Classics !
A good tablescape can make any occasion extra special.
Setting your table is probably one of the most simple steps you can take to leave a lasting impression. So, whether this is your first year hosting the holidays, or maybe you want to take it up a notch with your table, here are three different styles.
I often set mine as some version in between the three! I like to add in different elements like name cards & menus. Studio Sanchez, one of our preferred vendors, is a stationary queen and can elevate any event! Having your napkin in a design, such as a knot or waterfall, is another element I love to add to the design. For the holidays, you can even add personal wreaths for each plate, little gingerbread men, or a small gift such as a customized candle.
Okay, I am OBSESSING over this. Disco balls are literally my life! I recently saw a video of a disco ball made into a Christmas tree base so T and I will for sure be cutting disco balls to make a tree base this year.
Disco Balls are so much fun and can literally be incorporated into pretty much anything. Another bonus with these is that you can keep them out for New Years, because who doesn’t love a good ole disco New Years Eve Party! If you are not into the colorful red palettes during the holidays, this palette with white, greys, green and black is totally for you. It truly sets the mood for a modern, retro holiday party!
So if your FYP (For You Page) on Tiktok is anything like mine, it’s weddings and a modern take on a classic Christmas, which I totally love. It’s modern, yet nostalgic. It makes me think of growing up back on the east coast with a multi-colored Christmas tree, those crazy mercury glass Santa ornaments, and the good old classic Christmas movies. Oh and cannot forget about my brother and sister fighting over what games our family was going to play. If your family loves games just as much as us here are some of our favorites!
I love the traditional colors. Nothing says Christmas more than red & green. With this design, I love adding in red accents with Christmas berries and napkins, adding in green with wonderful fresh pine, and gold with candles and tableware. Using this festive color scheme to welcome your friends and family makes Christmas feel extra welcoming and Christmassy.
To me the winter is all about being cozy. There is nothing like the ambient lighting of the Christmas tree, the fireplace going, gingerbread cookies in the oven and a warm thick blanket. And let’s not forget about the wine! So this is our take on how to style the perfect Holiday Table from a cozy perspective.
These tables all show a different way of having a comfy vibe while still having holiday cheer. I love changing up the garland runners and adding in a nice knit throw or sweater, and not to mention it brings texture into the table. While cozy palettes can still incorporate reds and greens, they are much heavier on the neutrals and often bring in the other warm, rich accents such as terracotta and maroon.
Now let’s talk about how to style the perfect Hanukkah table!
Hanukkah is known as the festival of lights full of tradition, menorah lighting, and eight days of holiday festivities. A Hanukkah table can be fancy, formal, or playful with ornaments and disco balls to add a lovely note of holiday glimmer.
This beautiful color palette of blue, silver, and white is so clean and traditional and really sets the tone for a festive table setting.
