My Holiday Table

December 20, 2014

Happy December! The holiday season is finally here, which means it’s time to eat, drink and be merry; it also means for many of us, entertaining is in the near future – and lots of decorating. From your tabletop to your treetop, this time of year is especially all about the details. Unfortunately, the holidays only come once a year, so buying tons of holiday decorations might not make the most sense if you’re living in a tiny city apartment (me!) without a lot of storage (me!), or on a budget (me!) which is why I love to mix and match, utilizing colors I can easily incorporate into my every day decor – so without further ado, here’s how I’m styling my holiday table this season: 

I fell in love with purple all over again this year so when Love Detailed got these diamond amethyst glass tumblers in I knew I had to have them and somehow incorporate them into my holiday table. I used china I already owned, mixed and matched gold saucers and napkin rings (some I owned, the others I made since I didn’t have enough to match them all perfectly), and used a basic white table cloth and cloth napkins. To add a festive feel, I picked up pinecones at my local craft store and a couple of ornaments, then placed them all into a gold pedestal bowl; I went with white roses in a mix of vases with various heights and added a few candles to make the setting a bit more formal. If you haven’t noticed already, I love holidays, decorating and entertaining (and a good apron, which also makes for a great hostess gift), but one thing I can’t stand is buying something I can’t use more than a couple times a year – that being said, metallics and neutrals are my go-to; don’t be afraid to stray from the “rules” – as long as you keep the general theme of your gathering in mind and show some kind of consistency, if you ask me, anything goes! 

I picked my favorite Love Detailed products so you can easily re-create my holiday table (below). To shop the full collection, click here.
