A table set for the holidays

Light, big, sparsely furnished room with a long table set for feast. Christmas tree at one end, paper stars above.

A table set for the holidays

Do you dream of a traditional holiday with a modern twist? Go for white as the bright base, and for details in red and blue. Add a touch of green (and scent!) from spruce twigs and warm yellow from twinkling lights. There you go, the table is set!

Let it shine

Few things set the mood the way light do. So, for this year’s holiday – set the party table with as many twinkling fairy lights, star lanterns and candles as you fancy. Just make sure you still have room for your guests.

“There’s so much going on during the holiday season, and so many things we want to have time for. So, go for simple and easy if you can – like a table setting that’s both quick and pretty. Use a white base, hang lots of paper stars from the ceiling, add lighting chains, candles, and, to top it all off, your favorite Christmas decorations – and you’re good to go.”

“If you’re tired of your plain everyday tableware, the solution may be as simple as dressing it up differently. Go for a colorful, patterned tablecloth and you’re old plates and bowls will feel like new.”
