Holiday entertaining and easy tablescape tips!


Setting a festive holiday table doesn’t have to be stressful! These are a few of our favorite tips to make you the hostess with the mostess!

  1. Start with a color palette. Don’t be afraid to use non-traditional colors but we recommend limiting to no more than 3 main colors. For this table, we selected scarlet red, grass green and midnight blue.
  2. Select a centerpiece. This usually drives our choices in linens and china. We love to incorporate a vintage element - either antique ornaments, an interesting container for florals or for this table, we used retro bottle brush trees.
  3. Take inventory of your supplies. Do you have enough napkins? Are you using a tablecloth? Do you have plenty of china for your guests? This is a great opportunity to mix & match. Short on china? Use a coordinating pattern at the head of the table. Not enough napkins? Alternate patterns at each place setting.
  4. Create your stack. Layers of linens, china and accent pieces create visual interest on your table. We used a placemat, dinner plate, salad plate and a colorful accent bowl.
