Festive Holiday Tables


It’s a fun time of year to visit stores to see what’s new for festive holiday tables.  Of course, that always makes me wish for new things which I’ve sworn off of, but that doesn’t mean the displays aren’t full of good ideas.  There were plenty in the lovely tables set at Crate & Barrel.

  Wood chargers are popular choices these days and work with a variety of looks.

Here they are combined  with other natural elements, real or not.  And take a look at the knitted table runner, a real eye catcher that made the table appear even more warm and cozy.  How I wish I were a competent knitter, but that not being the case I’ll be keeping an eye on the after Christmas sale!

Touches of whimsey are such fun.  How simple to add something like this cute little critter and make a table oh so playful.

Putting a little take away happy at each place is a great idea, no matter the time of year, for when friends are coming to dinner.  

There are so many different ways to create a festive table.  A little sparkle and shine dresses up any table whether it be by adding a glimmery napkin

or glistening tableware and sparkling accessories.

What every table had in common was multiple textures

and a centerpiece that allowed everyone to see and be seen.  As I studied each one and came away with some great ideas, it dawned on me that there are no rules for tablescaping. That’s what makes it such a wonderful opportunity to express one’s creative flair.

Have fun as you do your own festive table and don’t be shy about getting inspiration from other sources!

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

  1. I enjoyed seeing all these tables!!! Thanks for sharing them, we don’t have a Crate and Barrel anywhere near where I live so I am enjoying the tables vicariously through your photos!!!

  2. Decorating a table is a fun outlet for some creativity. Looks like it will be best for me to stay out of stores right now.

  3. OMG, each one is more gorgeous than the last! I too have sworn off buying any more tableware but oh you have definitely made me rethink that decision!! Sadly we travel for the holidays to be with family so we never host – that becomes the good news when there’s tons of work before and after LOL.

  4. Favorite store: Crate and Barrel! Go there every time I am in Dallas, Linda. Takes me several times around the store to see every thing and gather ideas. Just love it!
