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

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!
Hello Lulu, The table decorations looked so good and I enjoyed reading some of your posts. I am a fellow adventurer and am new to blogging. Would love for you to take a look at my first two posts. Thank you! 🙂
Oh so tempting! I haven’t bought anything for the holidays this year, mainly because I haven’t gone shopping!! I love virtual shopping though, thanks for the pretties!
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.
The same is true for us so I really don’t need any new for the table.
Each table is stunning and I am totally inspired to dig out every plate and set a ton of different tablescapes. Thanks for the inspiration and have a great weekend.
There isn’t a close Crate and Barrel to me, but I love their website! Loved all the inspiration you shared and the green napkin tied with brown ribbon caught my eye!
Thanks for the inspiration and the reminder that there are no rules for tablescaping…just have fun!
Have a Merry Weekend Linda!!! Enjoy your snow!!
A centerpiece that allowed everyone to see, and be seen, would also be very important to me!
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.
Thanks for sharing all these great ideas. Gave me ideas how I could reuse decorations.
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!!!
Love the woodland look in table setting now. And lots of textures, too!
