6 Holiday Table Setting Ideas

Simple Centerpiece // FashionableHostess.com

With the holidays around the bend, I have had many readers reach out to me for advice with holiday decorations – ranging from my picks for the perfect holiday centerpieces, to simple table accent ideas that will make their party special. I began brainstorming myself and thought, what better way to get inspired than to go back through my some of my favorite Fashionable Hostess Tables {see a full list here} and see what sparked my eye. So here is what I found…

1. {See image above!} Rather than getting crazy with extravagant centerpieces, sometimes a few calla lilies put in a glass vases {laid horizontally so you can see the stems} like I did in this post can be stunning and elegant.

2. The holidays are an opportunity to debut your most special pieces, so take out your wedding china or registry glassware {like these Juliska Amalia Flutes from this post} and finally — USE them at your table.

Print a menu

3. Create a printed menu card and place one at each person’s seat like I did in this post. I love hearing guest “oooh and ahhh” when they sit down and read it over!

Have a bread basket

4. Create a gorgeous bread basket {or in this case ‘bowl’} for guests to enjoy right when they sit. Be sure to include Olive Oil for dipping and bread plates at each setting with a small bread knife like I did in this post.

Use cloth napkins

5. Even though it requires a more tedious clean up, I always prefer cloth napkins over paper napkins for the Holidays. I love these Greek Key Napkins by Kim Seybert that were featured in this post.

Place Rosemary at each seat

6. Make use of left-over cooking herbs by using them as decor on your table like I did in this post {or around the house like I did in this post.} Placing Rosemary at each person’s seat smells so fresh and adds a beautiful pop of green to the table!

Best of luck readers and keep the questions coming!!
