Happy Monday, friends!
Well, I’m officially ready for Christmas! kidding… but my dining table is definitely ready to host a party! I’m excited to share my simple little dining room table set up, all ready to host a big family meal around the Holidays! I am actually doing that this year, so this was a great exercise in getting everything set up and party-ready! My husband is happily doing all the cooking (except for the pie, which I will take care of) so all I need is a glass of wine and some music and I’m ready to go! (full disclosure…that is not true and it will likely be a crazy day but a girl can dream, right?)
Let’s get into the details of my little Holiday spread!
I tried to incorporate vintage & modern elements and mix them with organic objects (like the pears/orange garland/fresh flowers). I’m not quite sure how to describe the style, but it feels very warm and inviting and that feels perfectly seasonal to me!
The dinnerware set really sets the tone for the whole scene! It’s the Grace Gray dinnerware set from Unison and I love that artisan hand-made quality of each piece.
I also got those amazing linen napkins to add subtle texture and warmth to the table. Linen is quickly becoming my go-to for all textiles! I debated on whether I wanted to use fresh garland or even placemats but settled on that simple striped table runner and I think its the perfect amount of yummy soft texture. I feel like Unison doesn’t get as much attention as other brands, but they are killing it in that oh-so-coveted organic/modern/artisan category! I want all the things!
The vintage comes in with those brass candlesticks. I think I paid $5 each at a local flea market! You can’t beat that patina and worn-in feeling! And I took some notes from my oh-so-talented friend Erin and made her DIY orange garland and love the color and organic texture it adds. It’s simple, easy and best of all very affordable (cost of an orange!)
Most of the other items on the table are things I already had, like that fantastic pitcher/vase from Target (unfortunately no longer available) and my brass flatware from CB2. The wine glasses are random ones from around my kitchen cabinets and the tumblers are awesome target finds!
The pear bowl is something I’ve had for years – a gift from my sister and I still love it to this day. She got it from a local ceramist while she and her husband were traveling. And aren’t pears the best table props? So painterly!
And I can’t leave out this amazing new rug from Rifle Paper Co. If I’m being honest, I got a 6×9 and should have purchased an 8×10 but I still love it so much. Especially for the colder months as its so soft and has that moody vibe!
That about wraps things up for now! What do you guys think? Tell me the first descriptive word that pops into your head in the comments (if you have actually read to this point…ha!)
