Whether it’s your first time hosting just the two of you at home, or you’re safely able to gather, it really makes the day feel special to set a simple table to gather around.
You don’t have to go crazy or literal Christmas to get that magic feeling, which is why I am sharing just 4 tips with you. Enjoy and shop below!
1. Mix Textures & Layers
I use a stoneware set of dishes for a modern, yet timeless look with the shape and colors. Shop a similar set here. Layering dishes with a charger instantly elevates your setting with minimal effort, shop my chargers here.
To combat the hard stoneware, I love to mix in fringe-edged linens. Shop similar options to mine below!
You can always easily mix in candle sticks for warmth and a subtle holiday nod, but also to add height. Lastly, the layered runners keep the table simple while providing depth and texture.
2. Focus on Functional Details
Due to my small space, I’ve learned that it’s important to make sure almost all pieces serve a functional purpose. For example, you can use something like these beautiful pine & berry napkin rings to incorporate greenery without taking up space. Shop a similar one here.
3. Invest in Elevated Glassware
Investing in occasion glassware will pay for itself in no time. I chose these glass goblets for serving water to elevate our dining experience. It’s a plus that they are so beautiful! The gold detail ties everything together and gives all the holiday feels without being literal. Shop similar ones here.
4. Incorporate Natural Elements
The big trend is table garland, and while beautiful, it can get in the way or is best suited for a large table. You can still accomplish the feel with greenery stems/picks, or a bowl of mixed natural elements.
