Picture This: Setting the Table

The holidays always inspire me to want to set a beautiful table for guests. This is the only time of year I get creative with centerpieces and actually use all of the wedding china and crystal that’s usually stashed away. In looking for some inspiration, I found many unique concepts in all different color schemes. Hopefully, you will find something that gets you excited about your own upcoming holiday entertaining as well!


I love the combination of a bare wood table, black china, cut crystal and colorful florals—coasters included!


Have fun antiquing for some vintage colored glassware. This combo of blue and amber is a knockout.


Use the greenery you have in your yard to accent your table. The magnolia leaves used in this centerpiece are probably right outside your door.


This cheerful tablescape offers subtle Christmas fun.


Even if your dinnerware is not a traditional holiday color, you can still create a magical setting.


This fall bounty of vegetables is simple and elegant on a rustic linen runner.


This simple but dramatic table combines fall greenery of all hues, exquisite glass and bone china with gold accents. Stunning!


Print or handwrite a menu with your holiday fare on beautiful cards to add a special touch.


Using holiday ribbons as runners under your china, as shown here, is brilliant!


This table perfectly complements modern farmhouse decor.


Now that you can get embroidered monogrammed napkins easily (try Etsy), it’s a nice way to personalize and layer your table as shown here.


There are so many different variations of pumpkins and gourds to mix and match on your table.


Wheat makes an eye-catching floral focus and now comes in a variety of hues, but the feathered placemats steal the show.
