Holiday Dinner Tablescape – How To

Your tablescape will be the first thing your family and friends notice when they sit down for dinner, and we’re here to help make it feel like less of a burden. From locally-grown succulents and florals to simple and extra soft linens to plateware with pizazz to candles to really set the mood, we are fully stocked in our floral and housewares department with everything you need to achieve that picture-perfect table you saw on Pinterest.

Go Green with Festive Florals

The foliage on your holiday dinner table should be fresh and natural, but not overbearing to the point where guests will be confused as to what’s a garnish and what’s decor. Start with succulents, greenery, and arrangements from Bristol Farms’ floral department. All of our sustainable greens are grown in the wild and sourced from farm to vase from Continental Floral Greens. Locally-grown poinsettias or a noble fir wreath are just some of what you can expect to find. Small twigs or branches can be tucked away for a nice touch as well.

A Toast for the Host

Say cheers with Riedel Performance series glasses. All of the glasses in this series are technologically advanced and specifically designed to bring out the aroma and flavor of the wine or spirit that is being served. They’re also dishwasher safe!

Mix and Match

Pull your table together with elegant napkins and linens from Now Designs. All tablecloths are 100% cotton and come in three different sizes to choose from depending on how many guests will be celebrating. Placemats and napkins can add a personalized touch to each guest’s spot at the table and keep things tidy.

Plates with Pizzazz

Give your food the spotlight it deserves with high quality plating and presentation. Based in California, BIA Cordon Bleu has a unique offering of superb stoneware and dinnerware that you can start anew with or add to your existing collection.

With these tips and a bit of DIY magic, we hope that your feast feels just as warm and inviting as apple pie. Play around with color, give traditional heirlooms a modern feel and scatter candles and items from the garden around the table for a rustic look.
