Create Neighbor Envy With These Holiday Tablescapes
We know that some people love setting an elaborate table for holiday dinners while others opt for more casual meals with disposable dishware. Suitable for every table and every family out there, we’ve compiled our favorite tablescapes of the season.
This style pulls out all the stops. The table is swathed in a full-size tablecloth or a runner and includes a large centerpiece or elaborative table decor and full setting of dishware. Don’t forget the charger plates and cloth napkins. A miniature pumpkin or twig of holly berries placed on the top plate of the setting adds an extra special touch to each place.
Tip: Festive décor like artificial pine branches, candles, and hurricane glasses can be found at popular craft stores and at your local dollar store. The magic is in the presentation — it doesn’t have to cost an arm and leg to look spectacular.

Festive Yet Casual
When you’re having friends over for appetizers and dessert and don’t want to set a full table – but still want to be a little extra – go with a more casual style. Trade the tablecloth for festive placemats or a fun table runner with minimal dishware. Keep the décor simple with one centerpiece as the focal point. A flower arrangement, multiple vases filled with holiday themed items, or a cluster of candles are a nice touch. But be sure to always used unscented candles at the dinner table so the smell doesn’t compete with your meal.
Tip: Depending on the size of your crowd and the layout of your home, consider skipping the dining room and sitting at the kitchen table or island. You could even set up a tray of snacks on the family room coffee table.

Cover the kid’s table, or the whole grownup table, in butcher paper. This can be dressed up to for a rustic chic look or stamped with holiday designs for a more casual feel. Not only does it look great, you won’t have to worry about spills or stains – clean up is as easy as pumpkin pie. Extend the theme and use paper napkins. Trust us, no one will mind.
Tip: Place a few crayons around the table and ask children to write down or draw what they are most thankful for this season. Let the adults get in on the fun, too.
