18 TABLETOP BUYS TO SET A FESTIVE HOLIDAY SCENE

No season is more ripe for a more-is-more approach to decorating than the holidays. It’s a maximalist’s time to shine! (I always say: start with the tree, but certainly don’t stop there!)

Whether you’re hosting a seated dinner for 12 or a casual ornament exchange over pizza, your table will set the tone for the evening. Make it extra festive. There are so many different approaches one can take: keep it classic with crimson touches¬†leading the way, make it all about metallics with silver and gold accents against a crisp white tablecloth, or go for the Christmas clash and festoon with abandon. No matter which style you choose, the key is to commit and don’t hold back.

You don’t need a set of Christmas china to make it happen (thought I certainly wouldn’t mind having this one, if anyone is asking). When it comes to the table, it’s all about the little details –¬†joyful accessories and playful extras. Below, 18 buys for a fabulously festive table.
