I can’t believe Christmas is only one week away! The holiday chaos has begun - I have presents that need wrapping, menus that need to be planned, honestly dreading the grocery shopping. I usually love it, but during the holidays the stores are absolute chaos! I will be tuning into a good audiobook while I wait in the checkout lines - keeps me patient and entertained!
Today before I tackle all the tasks I wanted to share with you my favorite pieces for my holiday table, so you still have time to order for your table
This year we are hosting Christmas Eve dinner so I will be loading the table up with candles (tapers and votive) and ALL THE GREENS, swoon!
Let's start with the absolute basics I use for every single tablescape. This plates from West Elm are beautiful. I get SO many compliments on them thanks to their beautiful organic shape. Also on this list are my go-to linen napkins also from West Elm as well as their gold silverware! EVERYTHING is 25% percent off with FREE SHIPPING! Yay!
Next, let's move on to my favorite holiday accent pieces! Pottery Barn knocks it out of the park with their plaid patterns. I am OBSESSED with the Denver Plaid. It incorporates all the colors, navy, forest green, red, white, grey, making it so versatile and able to fit into any home.
Instead of the $80 (now on sale for $55 - still crazy expensive) table runner, I snagged a bunch of the scarfs at $13 (NOW ONLY 10.99!) to use as my "runners" between two place settings. I love how this creates lines across the table and acts as the "placemats". The scarfs are a few inches thinner and shorter in length, but they are the perfect size at 14x70! They also have another option that is reversible, allowing you to get two looks with one runner, score!
I also adore the plaid salad plates from Pottery Barn and love how the runners and plates match. I purchased the plates last year, and added the scarfs to my collection this year - the plates are also now on sale for $34.50 for a set of 4 instead of $50!
The last thing I purchased this year were these evergreen twig napkin rings that I am SO in love with! They are apart of the Hearth and Hand with Magnolia at Target. You can't beat the price as you get 4 in each pack!
Happy shopping and tablescaping! Stay tuned in stories this week, and I tackle lots more holiday prep giving you tips and answering any questions you may have.
