And oh yes, your holiday table is beautifully set. Once your guests arrive, they can’t stop complimenting how you’ve decorated it.
This can be your reality this festive season, with a few simple steps:
Pick a theme, any theme: Rustic, elegant, traditional or even a little quirky – there’s no wrong answer when it comes to deciding on a theme for your table. Whatever you choose, stick to it to stay true to your vision and keep things on track.
Turn to nature: Some of the best decor can come from the outdoors, especially during the winter season. Pinecones, holly, and birch branches all give off some seriously festive vibes. Pro tip: cut a sprig of evergreen, wrap some twine around it, and you have the perfect festive napkin holder.
Assigned seating is always a good idea: Place cards eliminate any potential pre-dinner panic. And they add a nice touch to your table, even if you’re hosting a small group. For a simple DIY, prop your place cards in those pinecones you picked up outside.
Avoid matchy-matchy: Don’t get too hung up on having matching tableware, napkins, or even chairs. Embrace an eclectic look by combining your modern items with antique touches (like your grandma’s cherished silverware).
Get creative with your centerpiece: The world is your oyster when it comes to choosing your centerpiece. Make things as simple or as complex as you’d like. Fill vases or jars with twinkle lights and ornaments. Spread some greenery across the centre of the table. And of course, always add candles!
Thankfully, your holiday table will look amazing. Thankfully, there’s Butterball.
