Hosting for the Holidays?

If you’re hosting dinner this year, here are some ideas for how to set a holiday table. Since your holiday table is typically the focal point—and where everyone comes together—I wanted to create a gorgeous tabletop that also looked comfortable and accessible. 

I personally love the rustic look, which is why my holiday table settings include teak wood products from Hayneedle. You can find the links for these below. Along with wood elements, I incorporated other natural elements such as linen tablecloths and napkins.

If you saw how I decorated my office and my front porch with Hayneedle, you know that I don’t like for things to be too matchy-matchy. For my holiday table setup, I chose to mix-and-match wood and white table settings with gold flatware. We love gold around here, so of course, I needed to include gold accents at my holiday table! 

I also like playing around with different designs and textures when it comes to decorating. The white marble oval trays, salad bowl, and dinner set have a simple design with a textured pattern. While a lot of the wood bowls and wood slab tray have asymmetrical designs and irregular shapes. 

You may also notice a few of my DIY projects on this holiday table! As a maker, I always include my own crafts in every room. So when you’re thinking of how to set a holiday table, try adding some of your own seasonal creations to give your table a more festive touch. 

While these table settings could be used for any holiday, it definitely has a fall look that’s perfect for Thanksgiving with family or a fall harvest feast with friends. If you’re the one hosting, make sure all your guests—near and far—can attend by sending them their own custom invites
