1. GO NATURAL
Forgo linens. Instead, dress your table with your fall foliage, such as greenery, pumpkins and gourds. We particularly like magnolia or silver dollar eucalyptus.
2. USE METALLICS
Gold and bronze feel particularly festive and inviting. Incorporate these into your tablescape with votives, chargers or flatware.
3. POTLUCK FOR THE WIN
Take some of the pressure off by asking guests to bring an appetizer or side. Everyone likes to share their favorite holiday dish. Bonus: less time in the kitchen for everyone!
4. KEEP THINGS RELAXED
By incorporating nature and setting a table that doesn’t feel too-perfect encourages guests to feel relaxed and at-home. Comfortable guests make for a happy host or hostess and sets the stage for a fun and memorable holiday!
