Hello everyone! Can you believe the holiday season is upon us?!? This time of the year tends to be soo busy for everyone, so I wanted to give you guys some helpful holiday tips on how to create a beautiful holiday table setting that can be used all throughout the season. All these items can be found at Target, and I’ll be sharing several different ways to style your table, so you can impress your guest. Here are a few of my favorite pieces that I think will create something beautiful that your friends and family will really enjoy.
First, let’s think about using a fun gold polka plate like these….
I love the fact that these can be used yearly, but the gold dot is perfect for the holidays. These are from the Sugar Paper line available at Target.
And let’s not forget that special layering piece that will make your plates sing! I love these scalloped gold chargers…..
Creating a beautiful table scape, for me, is all about creating layers. That’s what takes it from an every day meal, to something really special.
Here are some lovely table runner options…
I love the red velvet lined runner by the Threshold holiday line, because it reminds me of the a traditional Christmas. I can absolutely see it paired with some beautiful, fresh evergreen running down the center of the table. Or maybe you could use some hints of a beautiful Christmas plaid, by using plaid napkins or plaid ribbon to tie your napkins. Here are some great options, available through the Target Holiday line, if you are mad for plaid. 🙂
If you are going to keep with the all gold and metallic theme, I definitely think it’s still important to add some fresh greenery on your table. Eucalyptus, magnolia leaves, and fresh cedar are some of my favorites, and can usually be found at our local grocery or florist.
I’ve come up with a fun a clever idea to use a pretty little vases to scatter down your table scape. How about using some of these beautiful tooth brush holders? Target has some gorgeous ones right now, and they are a great price to be used as small vases. These are also a perfect size for putting flowers in a guest bath. Here are some of my favorites... But you should definitely shop the endless choice of toothbrush holders that Target carries. So many great choices.
I love this last muted blush colored one, so I’m also going to give you another charger option to coordinate lovely with it, in case you want to use golds and blush tones for your holiday setting. 🙂 These are from the Opal House line, and come in silver too!
Here are some pretty florals that I’d suggest using with those lovely blush touches. This could be really beautiful, especially for Thanksgiving.
I also found some great napkin options at Target, along with some pretty gold napkin rings. The Be Merry gold ones are from the Threshold Holiday line.
You could always tuck a sprig of fresh greenery inside those napkin rings too!
Since I love the theme of gold dots, I thought these glasses would be great!
I also recently found these adorable bottle brush trees in the dollar spot section, which could be great placed inside a gold lantern with some faux snow, and vintage glass ornaments, or just placed down the center of your table.
And here is a lovely option for the gold lantern….
These brass colored candlesticks are great too!
Hope you feel inspired to create a festive holiday table setting on your own home. Whether you are hosting a large family gathering, or an intimate family Christmas breakfast, I think these ideas could work beautifully in your own space. Be sure to tag me on IG @GretchenBlack if you use any of these ideas! I’d love to share them. And may you have a wonderful and blessed holiday season.
