Hey Y’all! Here’s the post I told you about last week on the show! We did two different looks. I’m posting one today and one tomorrow. This is our “Holly Jolly” Christmas Table. See pics and video below.
If you’ve listened to the show any time at all, you know I love setting a table. Like, absolutely LOVE!! It’s one of my greatest JOYS. I love life around the table, and I think when you intentionally choose a few days of the year to set a gorgeous table, invite your family and friends to eat, drink, and be merry… welp, that’s where the best conversations and memories happen!
A beautiful table says:
“Let’s stay here a while.”
“Today is special.”
Keep in mind, I’ve spent years acquiring different things for my tables, and I have a whole closet (ok, closets!) full of chargers, napkins, glasses, flatware, and the like. BUT, don’t let this overwhelm you! Anybody can set a beautiful table, AND you can do it on a dime!
If I were starting today, here’s where I’d begin:
1. I’d invest in chargers. Nothing will elevate your table faster than a charger.
2. I’d buy some cloth napkins from Amazon. You can get these cheap, cheap. We use paper towels and napkins every other day of the year. Remember, we’re going not just for a look, but for a feeling too.
3. I’d add a table runner. It brings the whole look of your table together, and it’s just beautiful. Target and Amazon have GREAT runners.
Lastly, make sure you have lots of votives. Again, you can get these anywhere! And they cost next to nothing. You can either do 3 groupings of threes (just make sure it’s an odd number) or place them strategically down the runner.
