I don’t know about y’all, but I love the look a beautifully set table. And this time of year is the perfect time to set it and forget when it comes to your dining room table decor. The holidays are full of friends, family, and fun. But it’s easy to get overwhelmed by doing too much. Instead, I’ll show you my winter tablescape. It can easily be adjusted for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas using the same basic elements and making a couple of easy switches.
Easy Holiday Table Decor
In my mind, gold goes great with fall and silver is perfect for winter, so I took these chargers that I bought during a Saint Arnold’s pub crawl in Rice Village (yes, seriously) as my inspiration to mix the metals for table decor that would last through the season. Underneath, I went with these gold placemats to provide a rich, but not a too full backdrop. And to complete the layers, I went with these gold leaf dessert plates which offer just a touch of gold to avoid overwhelming the super sparkly chargers.
For the centerpiece, I wandered around Michael’s for an hour or so and came up with this. Sparkly pinecones (similar here) in plain glass candle holders topped by a floating candle surround a subtly gold vase (similar here). Since we’ll be out of town for Thanksgiving, I opted for some fake blooms that remind me of cooler temps.
The best part about this holiday table decor is that you can leave your dining room table set as part of your holiday decorations. You can easily swap out fresh flowers in the vase that work best for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas. And prior to Thanksgiving, plop some small pumpkins in place of the (or in addition to) the pine cones. It feels super festive, makes your home feel fancy, and it’s all easy peasy!
