Thanksgiving is over, let’s bring on the Christmas tunes and holiday decor 🙂 Everyone automatically thinks of trees and stockings, but really, you can’t forget the dining table! Who’s hosting family dinner over the holidays? Let’s talk shop!
Setting a festive table can easily transform a home for the holidays. Especially over here at the Copy Cat Chic household where the dining room is a straight shot from the entryway. Trimming the tree, hanging up the stockings and setting the table all go hand-in-hand for me. Who wants to stare at a bare table when the rest of the house has their holiday best on? 😉
I’m loving Pier 1’s holiday collections this year, they have options for every style and taste. For me? I’m loving their Frosted Noel collection, but Champagne Shimmer was a close second. I’m all about mixing metallics with fur – makes for such great texture and shine.
I went for more of a tone-on-tone look and just built-up the layers to give the table some depth and interest without a ton color. Warm metallics and fresh greens create a gorgeous focal point. And the white dishes and linens are the perfect base.
A boxwood wreath helps accent the birch bark candles and fresh pine trimmings line the rest of the table. Although these flocked pine branches would look gorgeous as well! The greenery looks so fresh and festive laying on faux white fur don’t you think?
Next I paired these crisp (and versatile) white dishes with a mix of shine and a touch of rustic with these great birch placemats and super elegant glass chargers. I love how the birch placemats tie in with the birch pillars in the centerpiece. I also plan to use this great birch wrapping paper for our gifts this year! It’s durable and thick, which is a necessity when it comes to gift wrap.
As you can see I’m missing flatware, I’ve been looking for a great set of gold flatware that’s the right mix of traditional and modern. I think this Collier set might fit the bill, what do you guys think? Back to the store I go 😉
Do you consider table decor when decorating for the holidays? And do you change it every year or keep it generally the same and just add new touches here and there?
