:: 3 Tips For A Holiday Ready Table ::


Tuesday Tips

c62148255d6dbb752c3e7f9e27aba401Preparing is half the battle. We’re trying to get you guys prepared for the upcoming holidays so it won’t be as stressful as it’s already going to be. Last week we gave you a few tips to get your kitchen ready for the upcoming holidays, if you missed it jump over to it here. This week we’re focusing on the table. Let’s get your table ready for the holidays. It’s going to see the most action it will see all year in the upcoming months, so let’s make it ready! We’ve got 3 tips to help you and your table make it through these holidays. Ready? Let’s go!

1.  Stack & Layer

Let’s give your table some depth. We can accomplish this with table clothes, runners, place mats, and stacking dishes. Layering your table linen will instantly give your table some depth and if you want to play with colors it can even add contrast or fun pops of color. Don’t limit yourself by placing each and every dish, utensil or napkin on its own. Stack them up to add dimension to the table. Place those beautiful napkins on the stacks for the bonus cherry on top.

2. Simplify The Centerpiece 

We love gorgeous and stunning centerpieces, but usually they are large and take up some valuable table space. So this year try to keep it simple. This way it will save you time and hassle. Depending on your table size, you may be able to leave your stunningly simple centerpiece out for the actual dinner. No extra time spent removing it and no one will be left out of the conversation due to the monstrosity of a centerpiece.

3. Prepare For The Mess.

Holidays are messy – plain and simple. So prepare for them. Mentally preparing for that stain that’s going to happen on your new/favorite table runner is probably going to help you cope with it a lot better when it happens. With that in mind, maybe we don’t want to use our newest or best stuff during the holidays. Food for thought.
