Minimalist Holiday Tablescape

In Design, Dining Table, Food, Holidays on November 16, 2010 at 2:30 pm

The holidays are all about family, tradition and foooood. It’s all about fitting as many friendly bodies as possible around the table with room for Tom and the fixings on the periphery.

We like to keep it simple. Harvest colors. Mix n’ match plates and napkins.

Individual salt and peppers shakers. A bit of nature to add some texture; we like pinecones, branches, maybe a bit of twine tied around the napkins.

Because this is a simple setting remember the obvious. Keep it simple. No nameplates necessary. There is a time and place for them, yes. But this isn’t it. No candles or crystal for us. We have kids after all. And the little one likes to climb to the middle of the dining table to play ‘queen of the mountain’. Nope, we’re saving the nice stuff for another day.

Forgive the blurry pics. Too much caffeine. :)
