Set the Table: Holiday Dinner

You may remember these photos from the Fall issue's Thanksgiving feature, but they're too pretty to not share again. If you are still figuring out how you want to style your table for your upcoming dinner party or even your Christmas gathering, use these simple ideas for inspiration!

Simple and festive is the ideal way to decorate your table for any holiday gathering.  Here are my tips for setting your table with ease and beauty:

Live Plants  Succulents from your local home and garden center are fairly inexpensive and can be combined in any vase or container for an easy centerpiece. The varied shapes of these plants will provide a subtle element of interest to your table.

Candles You can’t go wrong with flickering light at any holiday gathering. Use tapers in a bold color or place a votive at each place setting to provide a sense of coziness.

Linens An easy way to add color and texture to your table is with napkins and runners. Don’t be afraid to mix-and-match fabrics and colors. These shown are from Rufflewood and Pottery Barn.

Place Setting Decor Use more than one item to create visual interest and add color (for instance, I alternated succulents and pears at each place setting).
